Who is Codie Sanchez and why you should be following her

As the cost of living continues to go higher and higher making it harder for regular folk to make a living, more and more people are turning to building side hustles, flipping assets or trying to build investments to earn additional money. 

Given the recent stock market sell offs as well as declines in other assets such as property and crypto, people are having to search outside the box for money making and investment ideas. 

In this field there are several prominent voices such as Gary Vaynerchuk, however one whose popularity is rising fast is Codie Sanchez.

Who is Codie Sanchez?

Codie is an ex journalist and Wall Street fund manager who started her own investment firm.

From her website bio

“Codie Sanchez is a reformed journalist, turned institutional investor to cannabis investor and adviser, to now Founder at Contrarian Thinking and Cofounder of Unconventional Acquisitions. She thrives on helping people think critically, and cashflow unconventionally while allocating to what we call “sweaty & boring” small businesses.” 

“I’ve long been obsessed with contrarian investing even while I’d done the traditional route of working at Goldman Sachs, going to Georgetown, flying hundreds of thousands of miles to listen to thousands of investors looking for funding. And hey, I’ve raised and invested a lot of money doing so. I’m far from done on my journey and by no means professing to be a guru, just a girl trying to figure it all out. “

Aside from the above, Codie also has extensive investment experience in property and small businesses such as gyms, car washes and vending machines. 

Whilst Codie’s investment advice is top notch, her approach isn’t for everyone. Though Codie is very transparent, she isn’t afraid to tell it how it is and doesn’t sugar coat her advice to spare feelings. If that isn’t your type of expert then you may want to look elsewhere for ideas and information. If this is up your alley then you’ll love the great ideas, information and case studies that Codie regularly provides across all her content channels.  

Why Codie Sanchez can help you improve your income and net wealth

Given Codie’s background in doing deals, it’s no secret that a lot of Codie’s content is based around finding ways to boost income or to purchase quality small businesses. Similar to Gary Vaynerchuk, Codie provides a massive amount of FREE quality information. From passive income ideas for 2022 to simple steps to vetting a business you are looking to purchase there is so much free information that can help you now!

While a lot of these investment professionals recommend investments  or ideas that require significant knowledge or significant capital, Codie’s advice and recommendations don’t require much previous knowledge or significant investment capital. 

Examples of this include articles on understanding debt for investment purposes, tips to handle a recession, ways to perform due diligence before buying a business and how to buy a business when working in a full time job.

Two businesses that Codie has set up in recent times are Contrarian Thinking and Unconventional Acquisitions (with Ryan Snow) which are great sources of ideas and content.
