About Me

I was born in Toronto and reside in Phoenix, AZ. I am married (25 years, 18.2 Canadian years), have two awesome kids and a dog named Lindzee (dachshund).

Schools I attended and even graduated from include—University of Western Ontario, Arizona State University and the American Graduate School of International Management (Thunderbird).

I am focused on the innovation in personal finance and do-it-yourself investing.

I make early stage investments through Social Leverage.

I am the co-founder and chairman of StockTwits

I write books and occasionally do interviews.

If you don’t believe me, here is what Entrepreneur Magazine said about me:

Howard Lindzon is an irreverent buzz machine who powers through wall-to-wall meetings on five milligrams of Adderall. A prolific blogger and serial entrepreneur (StockTwits, a Twitter for traders, is his crown jewel), Lindzon is founder and general partner at Social Leverage, an eclectic seed fund. He typically finds entrepreneurs before they find him. Here’s what he likes: founders who show grit, solve problems and won’t crumple in chaos. Here’s what he ignores: business-news TV and spreadsheet-based decisions. His fund’s average investment: about $600,000.

In the Summer of 2006, I created Wallstrip and we aired over 300 episodes. In May 2007, Wallstrip was purchased by CBS.

My hobbies include golf and cycling. I am an empty nester (I own and operate two millennials) and expect my amazing kid to boomerang home after college.

I am in pursuit of the perfect sleep solution.

Introduction: Books

Books

If you buy my books on Amazon I can recover one share’s worth of my position in the $TWTR IPO.

Book: The Wallstrip Edge

The Wallstrip™ Edge

My first book was written in 2008. I wanted to call it “The Twitter Edge,” but the people at Hachette thought they knew better. The book is easy to read and follow on the subject of trend following. I explain the trends I believed we were in the midst of. I explain how I spot trends and follow along. I discuss my strategy for selling. I urge you to turn off TV and avoid news.

It turns out the Twitter trend was dead on. The identity trend remains a huge trend and I discussed Lifelock at the time. It is now a successful public Company. I was early discussing robots, but today (November 2016) iRobot is at all-time highs, which I covered in the book. It is worth a read even today.

Book: The StockTwits Edge

The StockTwits Edge

In 2011, I got the writing bug again and worked with my good friend Phil Pearlman to write what really is an update to The Wallstrip Edge. We spoke to some of our favorite contributors on Stocktwits to uncover their best setups and strategies for making money.
