Meet Donovan Carson

Hello, I'm Donovan, the founder of Carson Capital.


I am not a CFA. I am not a CFP, ChFC, AIF, FRM, or CIC... In reality, the most robust credentials you can have are achieving a high degree of personal success within the said domain. Just like I wouldn't trust a dentist with crooked teeth or an overweight personal trainer, in the same way, I don't think you should trust anyone with your hard-earned money that hasn't shown financial mastery in their own life.

I'm an investor and entrepreneur turned advisor after amassing a seven-figure portfolio by the age of twenty-seven through diligent planning and investing. I majored in entrepreneurship and finance and have worked at a firm with over $600M under management; however, the most important lessons I've learned are from my thousands of hours obsessively building, managing, and optimizing my real-money portfolio and investment strategy from age 18 to now. Similar to the attitudes of many entrepreneurs I serve, I didn't ask permission from someone or need a credential to become a successful investor - I just went and did it. It took a massive amount of time and dedication. It took a willingness to fail, to take risks, and, most importantly, persistence not to give up while I learned and refined my process.
