“It gives me great satisfaction to teach everyday investors (investors who don’t have millions of dollars at their disposal) the same skills and strategies that I used with my high net worth clients as a private wealth manager. It may be a cliché, but giving something back to the community is more rewarding to me than helping very rich people get even richer”
