Excellent Podcast & Blog

Andrew’s podcast and blog are hands down one of the best wealth resources you could ask for. His guest speakers and Q&A on investments to planning provide tremendous real life value. It’s rare to find someone that makes it clear to get lots of in depth guidance from his guest financial experts like he does. BTW - Do yourself a favor and download his tools from his blog, they will drastically help you figure out how to plan your financial goals.
