In this episode, Hall welcomes William Bissett, President and Founder of Portus Wealth Advisors and podcast host at Charlotte Angel Connection. Portus Wealth Advisors is a Private Wealth Management firm based in Charlotte, NC and serves clients across the country.  

William began his career in insurance sales, then moved on to a job at a wealth-management firm. After a number of years, he then moved on to his own business, but soon realized that he wasn't the right person to run it long-term. After an exit there, a colleague suggested to him that 'because he had a lot to offer' he check out the Charlotte Angel fund. As they say, the rest is history.

William speaks about the evolution of the angel-investing world, the challenges faced and what excites him. He also gives advice to investors and entrepreneurs.
