Enjoy! Ryan Reeves 0:10 Okay today on the Investing City podcast we are overjoyed and just so excited to have Brent the sole owner of "Adventures" here on the podcast-thank you so much Brent Brent Beshore 0:23 Hey thanks for having me on -way to set expectations low Ryan Reeves 0:28 Okay so yeah, I don't want to set expectations low because that is very undeserved! Brent, I don't know how I originally found you. Honestly, I just found you through some blog, maybe. But I've been reading your stuff for years. And yeah, just super excited for this interview. So, I've noticed you've actually been doing a lot of podcasts lately, and you probably get a lot of questions. But I was wondering, what is one of your most memorable questions that you've gotten so far? Brent Beshore 1:07 It has to be on a podcast? I think Patrick's question about what's the kindest thing someone's ever done for you is a pretty darn good one. I think it gets at things that we maybe don't often think about. And yeah, reflect on those things. So I think that's a pretty interesting one. Ryan Reeves 1:25 Totally. And what was your answer for that? Brent Beshore 1:28 Well, my answer was, there's a gentleman, his name is Craig, who used to work with me. And he really picked me up when things were dark. I think it's easy to look at anyone's life.

There's been lots of ups and downs and lots of periods where things didn't work out the way I wanted them to-lots of times where things were looking pretty dire. And during one of those periods, early on, Craig was really an anchor, a rock for me, and just was incredibly kind and generous and helpful. And really, just everything I could possibly ask for. Ryan Reeves 2:18 Wow, are you still in touch with Craig today? Brent Beshore 2:21 Oh, absolutely. Yeah, I texted with him a couple days ago. We are good friends. We live about 45 minutes away from each other now. Yeah, really great guy. Ryan Reeves 2:32 That's awesome. So I want to backtrack just a little bit. I was doing some research and you were doing your JD MBA at Missouri, and you got the opportunity to help a friend out with a company. Can you take us through that a little bit? Brent Beshore 3:17 Well, if I'm being honest, it wasn't so much a process as something that I stumbled on that eventually led to something more. I was getting my law degree, my MBA, and I realized that I didn't want to be a lawyer. And someone kindly said to me, hey, if you don't want to be a lawyer, it's probably not best to get your law degree- things you don't think about. And it was an opportunity to get into business. , I felt like I was kind of sitting on the sidelines, watching other people in business. But until you experience something,...
