Penn Little first began "investing" in the 5th grade, when his group won 3rd place in a Dallas Morning News-sponsored stock picking contest. His first true investments came when he invested in himself, to recover from substance abuse challenges in his early twenties. He began working for a behavioral healthcare provider in 2011, beginning as a management consultant in 2013, and starting his own investment-centered business in 2014, in order to improve substance abuse and mental health care. Now, a decade later, Penn has exited three start-ups. Before founding Bar Nothin Capital Management, Penn was the Co-founder and Managing Partner of Crestview Capital Partners LLC. At Crestview, Penn led the charge in an effort to improve outcomes in mental and behavioral healthcare by scaling quality care models in the arena of community counseling. He sold the company in 2017, and started Bar Nothin'. Penn serves a contributor for Forbes. He is considered a healthcare-finance subject matter expert. He specializes in synthesizing the data behind the industry and the effects certain investments place on individual care centers as well. Penn holds a Bachelor of Arts from The University of Oklahoma, where he studied Economics, and an MBA in Finance from the University of Arizona's Eller College of Management. Penn founded the Wilkinson-Dorrell Scholarship Program at the University of Oklahoma Foundation. While at Crestview, Penn also co-founded the Shatter Our Silence Initiative, to combat teen suicide in Northern Illinois.
