Sacca is best known for his early investments in Twitter, Uber, Instagram and Kickstarter. Those bets really paid off. He went on to start his own Los Angeles-based investment firm, Lowercase Capital, and he has been so successful at picking start-ups he ranks third on the Forbes “Midas Touch” list of best tech investors. He’s also a frequent guest shark on ABC’s “Shark Tank.”
Before he made it big as an investor, Sacca worked at Google, and early on in his career, the self-made billionaire frequently crashed meetings there too, especially ones the Google founders were attending. He simply walked in, sat down and informed anyone who asked that he was there to take notes, Ferriss says.
Eventually, Sacca “became a fixture” in those meetings, writes Ferriss.
