Masterful!

Barry is the best! I gain so much from the compelling conversations happening on Masters in Business - no matter the guest or topic of conversation, I always walk away feeling more informed! It's truly a must listen.

Systemic Racism

I jumped on this platform to “learn/strengthen” my financial knowledge, and I come across this ignorant subject, I find this offensive and weak. People now a days attempt and used this topic of racism as a crutch to boost their platforms. Many have fallen for this rediric and continue to make it an issue, but as a minority myself find it offensive that it continues to be used as a crutch. I’m a minority and am not oppressed, I set my own limits and so should everyone else. Move along.
