Daniel Ameduri is a self-made multi-millionaire, a full-time skeptic of conventional thought, and a proud father of three. He is the co-founder of the Future Money Trends newsletter and FutureMoneyTrends.com, which, with nearly 150,000 subscribers, is the most widely recognized online authority in investment ideas and economic advice. He’s been featured in The Wall Street Journal, on ABC World News Tonight, and on Russia Today TV. Daniel correctly predicted the collapse of Lehman Brothers, AIG, and Washington Mutual on “Vision Victory,” the YouTube channel he launched in 2007 and which now has had more than thirteen million views. He was the Youtube vlogger who correctly predicted the collapse of Lehman Brothers, AIG, and Washington Mutual, next he was the co-founder of Future Money Trends, the most widely recognized online authority in investment ideas and economic advice, and now, Daniel is the bestselling author of the buzzy (and quietly controversial) new book, Don’t Save for Retirement. According to David, retirement as we know it is an “outdated experiment that ultimately failed.” Social Security is bankrupt, pension plans are on the verge of bankruptcy, and we are finally growing out of the idea that the stock market is a reliable place for our retirement dollars. In his new book, he shares the drastic life changes he made to propel himself from grocery store clerk on the verge of bankruptcy to self-employed deca-millionaire.
