Great information

Im in the beginning of saving and build wealth world which come pretty late comparing my age and my working period.. However I have to say that I’m very lucky to found your podcast. Information and content are great. Not too long, too short in each story and your voice pitch is just perfect for listening episode after episode. Your explanation is prefect for someone who know nothing about money like me and on top of that,you seem real and approachable.. Thank you so much and keep up the wonderful work!!
