Do you ever wonder how some of the world's top financial advisors invest their own money?

If so, you aren't the only one. Last summer, CEO of Ritholtz Wealth Management Josh Brown wrote a blog post titled How I Invest My Own Money that went viral in the finance and investment community.

Turns out, people are really curious as to how successful investors build their personal portfolios.

This blog post eventually turned into a book with Brian Portnoy called How I Invest My Money: Finance experts reveal how they save, spend, and invest where top investors share their personal investment strategies.

Josh joins the show today to talk about his blog post, his new book, and why people need to believe in the companies they invest in.
