Howdy, partner. You know it ain’t easy out there on the ol’ stock trail. You may end up deep in some canyon where you think you’ll never make it out. But keep at it long enough and you’ll end up climbing a mountain where the views go on forever. But remember my friend, life is all about the journey. Take a load off, let me tell you a story....
What's that? You thought real estate investing was boring? Unfamiliar? Too much work? Out of reach? Well our old friend Matt Argersinger is here to tell you otherwise... and maybe dish out a little game show revenge while he's here. Hold on to your belled caps, we're talking properties!
Looking for a great investing success story? No problem. A cautionary tale of dreadful financial advice? No worries. A follow on Twitter? You’re welcome. Jim Gillies and Aaron Bush join us for another motley mailbag!
Earlier episodes mentioned on this show:
On this show, we love to talk about Conscious Capitalism. We generally avoid talking about politics. But what happens when those worlds collide? When campaign strategist Matthew Dowd was introduced to Conscious Capitalism, he wrote about how much better our world would be if politics took a similar approach. Now that’s worth talking about!
Is this the most important episode of the past two years? Now, if you’re a longtime listener, these truths may indeed seem self-evident. But to much of the investing world, they’re still wildly contrarian. So please feel free to share this episode with someone who doesn’t get it yet!
Sometimes a few little tweaks in your daily routine can improve your life dramatically. Maybe it’s getting up early. Maybe it’s rooting for the right people. Maybe it’s remembering that not all trolls are evil—but they’re still trolls. Today is the day to try some new tricks and hack your way to a better life!
Sports, investing, and character.... Crypto without the currency.... Kudos for Candyland.... And of course, your pet peeves. This month's mailbag is unlike any other. Just like all the others.
It's time for some fresh blood here on The Market Cap Game Show, and so we've hit up to our A-list of analysts to bring you Brian Feroldi and Brian Stoffel. But which Brian has the best brain? And are you better than both Brians? Only one way to tell...
It's not that we're negative nellies around here. I mean, we're optimists, right? But still, every once in a while, even Fools need to air a few grievances. So get ready to shake your fist at the heavens – it's time for some pet peeves!
It’s time check on the progress of 5 Stocks Indistinguishable from Magic and 5 Stocks with a Tailwind Blow. But for 5 MM MMM Good Stocks it’s year three, so we’ll give it one last look and a final tally before sailing it off in honor and glory… to Foolhalla!
We delight in breaking rules. But laws – real laws – the ones that govern the universe and human behavior... well if we fight those, we'll likely lose. But if we know them well and abide by them, we just might find ourselves a little smarter, happier, and richer.
Sometimes we find inspiration from the incredibly insightful authors we interview. Sometimes it's from the stories of everyday Fools who have seen the light—and most importantly, taken action. Always we find inspiration from this, our monthly mailbag!
What is normal? What is taboo? How much have we learned in the last century? In Gods of the Upper Air, Charles King illuminates the anthropologists who broke the rules of 20th Century culture, and the science that refuted society's assumptions about race, gender, and sexuality.
You've heard Shirzad talk about the benefits of raising your PQ, or Positive Intelligence Quotient. Now it's time to hit the gym and build some mental muscle!
Is it possible to train your brain towards happiness and success? The science says yes! Shirzad Chamine's Positive Intelligence is your guide to weaken the saboteurs that haunt your mind and strengthen your inner sage.
Another great month in the books! On today's mailbag we hear a lot of love for Coach Reich, we get a little more airtime with our VC side-swami Ollen, and we round it off with some stories that remind us of what is truly important in life.
To be a Rule Breaker investor, you need to think like a venture capitalist. So... what's a venture capitalist? Glad you asked! The Fool's own Ollen Douglass is here to explain what it is, what it does, and how you can dip your toes in the VC pool.
You win some, you lose some. But if you turn those wins and losses into something bigger, something inspirational... well then you might just make the world smarter, happier, and richer. As an NFL quarterback and head coach, Frank Reich has won and lost under the brightest of lights, but his story rises well beyond the game of football. In fact, you might be surprised to hear just how much of a Fool he really is!
It's one year since David picked 5 Stocks For America, two years since he picked 5 Stocks That Pass The Snap Test, and three years since he picked 5 Stocks Celebrating the 2018 World Cup. Yep, it's time to check the score and see how the games-in-progress are going!
June has been a great month on the podcast. In fact it will be a hard month to top! But we can top it off, sure enough, with your top-notch questions, comments, and stories. From market caps to optionality, tune in and pay attention to the scuttlebutt.
Yankees vs. Red Sox... Barcelona vs. Real Madrid... Duke vs. North Carolina... The best rivalries are forged over time through heated competition. Today we give you Aaron Bush vs. Emily Flippen. Will the new format give Emily an edge? Will Aaron break the game again? Will you steal the crown from the comfort of your home? We won't know until we play... The Market Cap Game Show!
With a standing ovation and a few tears in our eyes, we watch the curtain fall on David's 30th and final 5-stock sampler. And as he takes his exit, is it...? Could it be? Is that a bear chasing these companies around? Well that might seem like tragedy today, but Fools know a comedy when we see one! Bravo!
Previous Great Quotes episodes have featured everyone from Shakespeare to Dr. Seuss. But today we're pulling from one of the best contemporary financial writers of our time. So contemporary that he's here with us as a guest on the show! It's best-selling author and forever-Fool, Morgan Housel.
Aaron Bush and Tim Beyers have taken very different paths to become Motley Fool analysts, but now they are the duo who will lead the Rule Breakers team into the future. Today we hear their stories, in their own words. Up and to the right, here we go!
"May you live in interesting times," is said to be an ancient curse. But is it really? Maybe it's just the result of leading a more interesting life. Well, May has been interesting, and the mailbag doesn't disappoint! We have perspectives from all ages, from around the world and even from the future!
