Thanks for listening, Brad. Appreciate all your support lately! It’s a hard thing to get used to being recorded for that long, but it was a blast.

Not sure how many of the readers actually took some time out to listen to the complete session but it was very informative about your past and your views on your own personal finances.

I do echo Mr. Credit Card’s concern that you might fall into a trap where you move onto something else too quickly. I have been accused of doing so too frequently and it is a major aspect of my own personal personality that has stunted my successes.
