Welcome to Talk Money

Money demystified through storytelling.

Hi there,

I’m excited to introduce you to Talk Money--hosted by me, Mesh Lakhani. This newsletter supports my Talk Money Podcast; in both, you’ll learn about business, investing and finance through stories that matter.  Listen and subscribe to the podcast on Apple, Spotify, Stitcher or wherever you choose to listen.

This is about transparency and truth.

Money does, indeed, make the world go round--it’s involved in almost every aspect of our lives. That’s why I’m here to demystify it. Let’s work together to learn the secrets of the financial world. 

Remember, in Blow, when Johnny Depp’s George Jung gets the attention of his prison-inmate students by saying that he’ll teach them how to smuggle drugs? I’ll be doing that, here--except we’re smuggling knowledge (you won’t get into any legal/moral trouble).

Remember, in The Big Short, when celebrities broke down complex financial concepts using relatable analogies? I’ll be doing that, too, except without the budget for Margot Robbie in a champagne bubble bath. FYI: someone forgot to pay the editor for that scene. 

People say that they need to teach the basics of money, business, and finance in high school. Well, here it is; but this is no high-school class. This is entertainment. This is the bare-bones truth. This is me, representing you, unlocking the secrets and breaking them down, using them to make us smarter about our money. We don’t need school to teach us these things. 

Who Am I?

I’ve been fortunate enough to surround myself with smart and generous people who’ve taught me about finance and investing over the last 10 years. I didn’t go to school for this. I didn’t work on Wall Street. I learned everything by doing, making mistakes, and asking questions. A decade later in the investment world, I still remember starting my career back in 2008, right before the collapse, not even knowing what the Dow Jones was. Since then, I’ve had experience investing in stocks, tech startups, cryptocurrencies, and most recently, co-managing a $100M Credit Fund.

I want to protect you from all the companies using confusion to acquire you and your money. Let’s make this easy. Through relatable topics, we’ll discover the tools and products we need to take matters into our own hands. 

Let’s go!
