Josh is an experienced businessman, from an early age. My trajectory went from hauling wheeled carts of printer parts thru the streets of Philly and up cargo elevators. To key managerial roles within the financial industry 'complex'. My Start in the Financial world was in 1998. I've always been told, and have been, a 'thought leader' within my circles since the age of 7. From whiffle ball in the alley to seriously impactful business situations. Always wanting to be working with the best people. Executive level Corporate Business Development, Sales Strategies via Key Strategic Relationships, Service Teams. Synergies. Particularly well rounded within the financial sector, from the phones straight up into roles including the most challenging industry topics. I am Degreed within the 'Media Tech' Complex, or 'B&C;Communications, Media, Telco' with a Business Minor specifically focused within these exact 'Communications' sectors. And did a stint in Italy traveling with professors from Temple University to Yale. This was focused around Art & Architcture; History & Printmaking, truly cannot leave that fact out. It has shaped my life to this very day, including post study travels across the world. Living abroad young opens your mind and the characters met along the way are never forgotten. Did it right... Family runs a 55 year old TPA. This means the most detailed guidance & administration for your 401k plan document itself. The rules and regulations mandated et al. Pension Administration & Record Keeping Services. Our family firm has thrived/survived as an 80% consolidation within the market has dominated these days. Per Example; Ascensus, Paychecks or ADP. We focus in person, can work nationwide. and seriously at fractional costs compared to anyone else we know of. In fact, we have survived because of this philosophy. Other TPA firms and related professionals send us work! This advanced consulting for smaller Businesses, Owners from doctors to attorneys, landscapers and non profits has certainly influenced my well rounded views of the markets. The cherished SMB plan administration sector. Hundreds if not thousands of business owners and Financial Professionals, Accountants and the IRS, over time. Why? We are a non producing TPA; meaning Advisors seek us out, as their TPA of choice to provide IRS mandates for plan design templates and further guide them with the massive amount of rules and regs, behind the scenes. Meaning, they will have time to seek out more business partners come audit season to advise correctly, ethically and to the letters of law. We can be and often are present at the long sales process to explain the always changing IRS and DOL rules; yet we do not pick investment options. The owner/FA does. No conflicts at all. Other past work includes help in the designing, build and rolling out of Nationally Sold financial products. Creating and managing revenue generating marketing campaigns, with complete ownership of the related accounts. I have worked with and co-managed wholesalers nationwide, working with the best from all firms imagined. From full firm CE conference calls to executive retreats. Representing our well known Chief Economists, Gerontologists, Actuarial Geniuses, even Celebrities of many stripes for speaking slots at meetings, executive boards, management teams. Yes, the conference and key accounts circuit and 'believe me' all related experiences. I am well traveled, currently residing outside Philadelphia with my incredible family and am a proud father. A passionate musical and media fan, and family. I also play Dejembe and percussion 'in a band' called Mama Mac! She is a multi nominated musician including the Grammy Awards. If you read all of this, thank you. Message me. JBg

I've always had a fascination with the future we are moving toward. Behind the numbers, certain stocks allow us to take part in a company's vision and its direction. The choice of an investment is essentially a prediction, and to predict correctly requires forethought, strategic analysis and a sensitivity to how things tend to play out. Right or wrong, I enjoy watching these trends unfold, and learning everything I can from these choices.

My investing experience dates back to high school years when I was first introduced to the stock market in economics classes and when I became fascinated by financial accounting. My first investing experience was rather painful: I lost a few thousand dollars on FOREX and penny stocks as I did not have a mentor or anybody knowledgeable about finance by my side. I still remember that time in details. After high school, I went to study economics with an emphasis on accounting at the University of Toronto. Four years later, with a finance degree under my belt, a decent experience gained in a few internships (where I got thanks to my soft skills, not my marks by any degree), I moved to Russia to work in investment banking, which I had decided was my passion a few years prior to that. I now live in Moscow, Russia, working as an Associate in Financial Advisory.
Due to the ongoing economic crisis in Russia, invoked by the sanctions, the country's financial industry has found itself in a pathetic state. Hence, things have gotten slow at work which is why I have a lot of free time to develop my services on Seeking Alpha (I started back in 2013, my final year of school). I am a number-cruncher by nature. Hence, my analyses almost always involve financial modeling and various financial metrics' calculations.
I feel that my job on Seeking Alpha is to identify investment opportunities among the smid-cap (small and medium cap) players in North America and Europe. Occasionally, I analyze a number of companies in a specific market segment in order to get a general idea about what is going on there as a whole. Sometimes, I write fairness opinion articles (I think nobody else on Seeking Alpha does that) on recent M&A transactions. I think that I bring value to my followers and other Seeking Alpha members by building analyses that are conservative in nature and present long-term views on individual companies. In my opinion, hard numbers are of more use to investors than tips, rumors, and guesstimates.

Taken all the coursework for the CFP, but a calling in the public sector had me set those ambitions aside. A few years later, I decided to shake the cobwebs off of that library of knowledge and take a look at investing money that had been saved up.
I enjoy the constant hunt for information and news. Working nights has me sitting at my computer wasting time on my nights off. I decided this might be a little more profitable if I redirected my efforts towards investing. I think that with the right information, people can always make the right choices, but sometimes the market doesn't agree...

Founder of Slingshot Insights, a company that works to provide retail investors access to professional grade investment research tools not readily at their disposal. As a former analyst at a large hedge fund, I found that as I began trading individual stocks on my own, I missed the research tools available to me when I worked for a large institution. The company was born from this idea and my desire to have access to a resource like SI.
