My Fav Investment Podcast

Your podcast is my favorite by far in my investment education journey. You are very detailed but easily understood. I love the fact that you focus on how to improve mindset which is what gets us new investors into hot water. I promote this podcast series to all of my friends and family and they said they enjoy it as well. I also like the fact that you speak in a normal tone and pace and fast talking like some of these podcast hosts on the platform as if you are selling something at an auction. Each and every time I listen to your podcasts I become more confident about my decision to invest and I thank you for that because I’m coming from a scarcity money mindset and have always been scared to assume risk with money. Again great content and thank you for sharing your knowledge.
