    Should We Worried About Inflation? Don't Be Silly

    Should We Worried About Inflation? Don't Be Silly

    For those who are worried about inflation, don't be. There is not going to be inflation or inflation worries for years, if ever. 

    I've got to believe the only people who are worried about inflation are people who took out a 30-year-fixed mortgage or who are against America!

Thank you Sam

Love the Podcast!

Good listen in addition to the blog!

Sam’s podcasts are a great addition to his blog. It seems like for every new blog post there might be a dedicated podcast episode to go with it where he goes in depth on his thoughts/opinions. While I may not be 100% in agreement with everything Sam says, I’m still open to hearing him out and getting his take on financial matters. I think he’s improving on opening the conversation on how we can all become financially independent.
