BRB Columnists were invited to a World Financial Group (WFG) branch where they learned about “paying it forward,” the Exchange Principle, company-wide trips to Vegas, and everything it takes to make it rich by selling life insurance—all while our recruiter tried to sell us an insurance policy, hundreds of dollars of license fees, and the opportunity of a lifetime.

Aaron is a Junior majoring in Economics with a minor in Material Science. Before he helped found BRB, he worked at a hedge fund where he focused on identifying companies committing financial and accounting fraud. His independent research on non-exchange traded REITs got him featured in the Wall Street Journal and Fox Business News. If you have a short thesis or an article you’d like to pitch, you can either find him at GBC stocking up for the coming winter or in Doe…hibernating (we’re pretty sure he is a bear).
