Real Talk: The Charles Mizrahi Show

Charles Mizrahi

I’m Charles Mizrahi. I currently write Alpha Investor — one of America’s fastest-growing investment publications — and have had nearly 40 years of experience as a floor trader, hedge fund manager and money manager on Wall Street. In fact, I was once named the No. 1 trader in the nation by Barron’s. But the story of my rise through the ranks is about more than just success — it’s about achieving the American Dream. You see, I didn’t grow up wealthy. But I did grow up with the belief that America was the greatest nation on earth — a land of freedom and opportunity. And right now, I’m on a mission to prove that it still is. Although we’re constantly being told by the media that America’s best days are behind her … I know the opposite to be true. That’s exactly why I started Real Talk: The Charles Mizrahi Show. With this podcast, I want to help you — and as many other Americans as possible — rekindle the American Dream and realize that we, the people, have everything we need to get ourselves back on track. Each episode features in-depth conversations with high-profile guests who share their own unique American Dream stories, and their views on the current state of our nation. I’ll also share with you my passion for teaching everyday people how to prosper through America’s greatest wealth creator: the stock market. Because I believe we all have a patriotic duty to give back to this country — which has done so much for us. read less
