About The Way to Build Wealth

The Way To Build Wealth was founded by Ethan Bloch, a 23 year old investment loving, internet video producing, Web 2.0 obsessor. Ethan bought his first share of stock at the age of 13. The year was 1998 and because Ethan spent large portions of his life on computers and the internet, that’s where he put his money; a decision that would teach Ethan an early life lesson, as the internet and telecom bubbles completely wiped out Ethan’s net worth at the age of 15.

It wasn’t until the spring of 2005 while studying international business in Valencia, Spain that Ethan stumbled upon Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger. This discovery exposed Ethan to a world of investor who, to Ethan’s judgment, had been practicing the Holy Grail of investing. Devouring countless books, ranging from investing to psychology, Ethan discovered that the practice of investing was a multifaceted activity that should be approached with several mental models (to be dissected in upcoming posts).

Ethan’s never looked back and has since graduated with a B.S.B.A, finance focused, from the University of Florida, been inducted into the International Honor Society in Economics, consumed vast quantities of books, business periodicals, and daily newspapers all in the spirit of improving and sharpening his investment aptitude. Furthermore he’s also been actively managing a securities portfolio since 2005, practicing and fine-tuning his investment approach. You can even view one of his portfolios here.

It’s Ethan’s mission to share the investment hacks, approaches, and wisdom he’s discovered and continues to discover from the world’s greatest investors, right here on The Way to Build Wealth.
