Outstanding

You are truly a gifted man Paul. For that you and I are likely both thankful. That fact that you choose to continue to serve your fellow man (& woman) is something I am grateful for. I look forward to hearing you “beat the drum” every week. I enjoy your presentations and personality. I hope this doesn’t insult you but you kinda remind me of a guy I used to listen to on AM radio in the 70’s, Bruce Williams. I was very young then but both of you gave me knowledge and hope that things can work out favorably.

We only have to do a few things right and not too many things wrong. (Who said that?)

I thank the lord you came my way and wish you the best.

Awesome podcast

The only finance lesson you need to know is to listen to Paul Merriman. He is a classic. His strategies are easy to implement with the M1 Finance portfolio. All you have to do is stay the course. Buy and hold, but don’t forget the hold.
