Sorry guys, we really tried bc we learned a lot from the call ins. However your constant interruptions, pointless stories and delving into areas for which you have no expertise is just too off putting. There are other financial shows by folks who treat their callers with more respect and also manage to stay in their lane of financial advisors. Best wishes.
