John Warrillow has built and sold many businesses, and has created a business value builder system used by thousands of businesses worldwide. With many, many years of experience under his belt, John knows a thing or two on how to bring value to a business. Today, he brings that wealth of knowledge with him to help make better financial sense for your family. Tune in for an insightful discussion featuring case studies, interesting stories, and maybe a new way of looking at your family’s financial picture.
Hot take incoming: every time you make a bad financial decision and lose big (let’s say shorting GameStop to the tune of $200,000), maybe you should blame someone else and sue them to recoup your losses! Sound crazy to you? Tell that to Christian Iovin, the man suing leading Reddit investor “DeepF$%kingValue” over his part in the short squeeze. During our headlines, Joe and OG give a thorough deconstruction detailing how the “get-rich-quick” mindset can lead a person down some strange paths – including thinking that a social media figure is responsible for your investing choices. While we aren’t without sympathy, we break down how Iovin willingly made his choice on what he thought was a great deal at the time, and offer up some sound advice to not get yourself caught between a rock and hard place – short squeeze or otherwise).
We’ll keep today’s theme going with our second set of headlines, Bill Gates is now officially “meh” on Bitcoin (it’s an improvement!), and financial advisors are ready to back the truck up to Crypto.
Now hold on a second if you think you know where this is going. We’re not here to preach #teamcrypto or denounce the movement either way. What we are saying, like in our interview with John Warrillow, is that you need systems. We’ve said the same thing about Tesla and Apple, and the rules don’t change for Bitcoin. The biggest danger to your portfolio isn’t a Redditor or Capitol Hill, it’s you. The best thing you can do for your bottom line is taking yourself OUT of the equation.
Enough of that, moving on. Finishing out today’s show is a Haven Life line question from Zac. He asks… (checking notes…)… is putting $20 a week into a somewhat random stock that has shown positive growth a good idea? Truth be told, we could have went a lot of different ways with this one. I’m proud to say the guys put some thought into this one, and not only give Zac an answer, but dive into some explanations on different stock analysis theories.
Of course, Doug always gets some airtime for his trivia. Enjoy!
