About Brett

Brett Owens graduated from Cornell University and soon thereafter left Corporate America permanently at age 26 to co-found two successful SaaS (Software as a Service) companies. Today, they serve more than 26,000 business users combined. He took his software profits and started investing in dividend-paying stocks. Mr. Owens employs a contrarian approach to locate high payouts that are available thanks to some sort of broader misjudgment. Renowned billionaire investor Howard Marks called this "second-level thinking."
