World travel is a dream that many people have but few people are afforded throughout their lifetime. Often work and the daily grind of life keeps people grounded in their hometown with only the occasional vacation sprinkled in. But what if your job took you to all corners of the Earth? This is exactly the case for mining and energy expert Matt Badiali. Badiali has traveled all across the globe to see first hand the prospects for natural resources in dozen of countries which include but are not limited to Turkey, Switzerland and Haiti. The investing expert wholeheartedly believes that in order to put your hard earned dollars into an investment it is imperative that you see that investment in person and know exactly what you are getting yourself into.
