Curated By Ralph

My favorite leadership quote is by Eleanor Roosevelt, who said, "Leadership is about making hard choices and being accountable for those choices."

So the game becomes more complex the Bigger you get the bigger the bullseye On your back ladies and gentlemen How important is the money where do you Rate the money when you're looking at The the the vehicle that you might Select well I I think it depends where You are in life meaning Your ability to invest is determined by The level of capital you have at that Point and that's not a finality it Doesn't mean you can't get there but Wishing something doesn't make it so Right so what I learned early on was I Remember I was like working at a job and I wanted to buy a house and I figured Out how much I needed for a down payment And I was like crap I'm going to be like 30 30 before I can afford a house Capital is the hardest thing to Accumulate And anything you can do to start Building Capital because here's the Beauty of capital it grows It builds on itself so anything that you Can do to get a regular income stream That you can build into capital is gold One day and then what do you do with That Capital like how do you invest your Money what do you love to invest in Um somebody just asked me that number One thing I always invest in is myself I Know that sounds facetious but these Guys yeah they're with you on that
