  • 19 Questions With Matt Millard

    1. How and why did you get started investing? What is your background?

    I was very lucky to get started very young with an interest in math, finance and even investing before I turned 10. My Dad was an oil and gas entrepreneur, and we would discuss different mutual funds and companies and things regarding his business and life experience in the family home office. I was also very entrepreneurial and started with lemonade stands and car washes and eventually a lawn care business and several jobs. I wanted to invest in real estate and fortunately found a local mentor and learned and grew a lot on that experience. That led to putting together a business plan and buying a property after my first year of college and getting roommates and learning a lot very quickly through experience and not just leases, maintenance and improvements but many other little things as well.
