Phenomenal. Thank you!

Without a single stock tip, this podcast has helped me improve my portfolio’s performance dramatically. I started listening for the policy updates, but now I’m thinking more critically about my investments, taxes and overall strategy. As a 30 year old who’s trying to figure out retirement accounts, I’d love to hear an episode on retirement planning, ETF diversification and tax considerations as well!
