Ted Bauman Discusses His Passions and Future of His Career

Ted Bauman is the editor of several publications under Banyan Hill Publishing, including Alpha Stock Alert, The Bauman Letter, and Plan B Club. Although he is a native of the DC Metropolitan Area, the majority Mr. Bauman’s career was spent in South Africa, which he emigrated to in order to attend the University of Cape Town. After graduating with degrees in History and Economics, he decided to stay abroad, eventually landing in the public housing sector, when he worked as an executive for over 25 years. During his time in South Africa, Mr. Bauman also helped to launch several prominent initiatives, including Slum Dwellers International. He would later act as a consultant for a number of reputable institutions, including the United Nations and the World Bank. In 2013, Ted Bauman joined Banyan Hill Publishing, where he quickly garnered a significant audience due to his works regarding asset protection, alternative investment strategies, and international migration. Today he lives with his family in Atlanta, GA, where he generally works from his home office.

While Ted Bauman has worked in a number of capacities regarding finance, he cites his decision to become a financial writer, one that was inspired by his father, as the most fruitful period of his life. Despite making the switch in careers after over twenty years in a different arena, he was able to make money rather quickly due to his “financial background and experience in South Africa.” Mr. Bauman has been able to maintain this level of success since his initial foray to his staunch commitment to managing his time efficiently. He generally dives into work early in the morning, as, over the years, he’s come to discover that this period in the day is his most productive; because of this, he tends to “guard that time of day pretty stingily.”

On a typical day, Ted Bauman begins by catching up on news that covers incoming trends and specific topics that he wants to discuss with his audience. Because topics like finance and asset protection are often mundane to the average person, he utilizes his unique writing ability, coupled with real-world examples that help to highlight the nuances of the issue. Ted Bauman’s workday does not end until around 5 pm each day, regardless of the time that it started, and this dedication, is, in his opinion, one of the primary reasons for his audiences growth, and sustained readership.

Alex Pall Embraces Career Move As The Chainsmokers Evolve.

There is something special about the state of pop music in the world today. More artists than ever are being given the chance to air their own unique riff on classic genres in order to gain fans and attention. The Chainsmokers, led by Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall, have helped to bring DJ/Dance Music back to the masses in a way that just hasn’t been done in years. The ‘Closer’ stars have seen their careers explode over the past three or four years and that upward trajectory seems to be limited by nothing but their own imagination. Pall and Taggart sat down in order to discuss their past, their future and their present and they unveiled more than a little about themselves along the way.

Pall was a DJ in New York City when his career first started to get going. Pall was linked through a mutual friend to Andrew and the two quickly found that they had chemistry and drive. The duo would spend 12 hours a day, every day during the week, working on developing their sound and the career path that they had wanted to take. Andrew laughs about the start of their career, admitting that when he was in college he was mocked for listening to dance music and rocking v-neck t-shirts. Now, Taggart laughingly points out, he’s making the exact kind of music for the people that mocked him before.

The Chainsmokers have been releasing radio super-hits on a schedule since they first popped into the mainstream but now the duo are taking a step back to really tune in to what they want to become. One of the big changes for The Chainsmokers going forward is the addition of Andrew getting lead vocals on their newest hit, ‘Closer’. The Chainsmokers typically produce the music in their songs while inviting other sings to come in and take the lead. Pall says of the new direction, “Well, why not?” Pall points out that they had played a big role in the writing process for the lyrics on all of their songs, so giving the vocal duties to one of their own only made sense.
