Mickey Fulp: the Mercenary Geologist

“I know the CEO of every company I own…… Looking people in the eyes is very important. I have a few trick questions up my sleeve that will separate the pretenders from contenders.”

Mickey Fulp, Founder of the Mercenary Geologist

Mickey Fulp runs a newsletter called the Mercenary Geologist, it is a large well-established newsletter in the mining industry, funded primarily by the companies covered.  

Before writing a newsletter, Mickey worked as a reservoir engineer, an analyst, and a geologist. All of these experiences led him down the path to becoming a professional investor and letter writer. 

In this discussion, we explore:

  • Why Mickey believes a Master’s degree is necessary for aspiring executives in today’s environment.
  • How a technical background in engineering and geology has given Mickey a leg up over his competition.
  • Who can be trusted in this industry, and how to spot the phonies.
  • What to look for when making a new investment.
  • What are Mickey’s favorite metals, and a few of his favorite stocks!

It was a fantastic conversation and I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did. Mickey has done an excellent job of shaping his life to provide himself everything he wants. There are not too many people in this world that can say the same!
