You’ll Learn

  • Penny stocks usually sell for very low prices and show a big upside potential. It almost feels like guaranteed money. They remain very risky; Mike learned it the hard way!
  • Mutual Funds are usually how investors start. While it is possible to build a retirement plan around them, this strategy is far from optimal. High hidden fees hurt investors’ portfolios.
  • Moving strategies might be tempting, but it’s one of the most harmful bad habits. You might get lost in the process and end up with a bunch of holdings that have nothing to do with your goals!

  • We end the episode with examples of strategies that work and why: DGI, ETFs, private wealth, etc.
