Great to learn more about finances!

Value vs price point

I enjoyed the conversation around & beyond price point. Longterm usage of your investments toward recreational sports was a great introduction. Honest open engagement, great voices, and it was over. I was ready for the next one. :) Thats a win!

Michael Harren ,

An entertaining way to learn about money

This podcast was a breath of fresh air. I typically get so intimidated by financial talk but on this podcast I felt at home and the conversational quality made for a really great listen. I was so surprised that there’s a way to buy houses so inexpensively. Looking forward to listening to this for a long time to come.
