EP 23: Hot Wings to Hedgefunds, Colin Macintosh

Colin Macintosh is no stranger to failure.  When he invested his own money, and that of his friends and family, in the Buffalo Wing business in New York City, he lost his shirt.  And suffered from meningitis.  But this former All-State Tennis player turned his luck around and made his money back the old fashion way, he earned it.  A true grinder, Colin worked his way up in the Convertible Bond world, cashed in for yet another dead end stint in Entertainment, then reinvented himself again by co-founding Carbon Beach Asset Management Fund.  Our conversation includes...
