I had the pleasure of speaking with Flexo & Tom from Consumerism Commentary the other day about the genesis of this site, The Samurai Fund, as well as various Codes of Honor. To go soon after one of my favorite authors, David Bach of the Automatic Millionaire series is a treat!
Why is it always so funny to hear yourself speak? For a couple minutes before the interview I tested out my native Australian accent. Realizing the audience would hail mostly from the US, I decided to scratch my bush tongue and speak in a more conventional “American” accent. Hope the enunciation was clear. Thanks to my mates Julian McMahon who plays Dr. Christian Troy from Nip/Tuck and John Noble aka Dr. Walter Bishop on Fringe for the inspiration!
To listen to podcast #43 on Consumerism Commentary click here. When the Plutus Awards come out, they’ve got my vote for “Best Podcast” for sure!
Three main points of contention in the interview:
1) How much do you think luck plays in investment success?
2) Do you believe people can truly retire after 20 years of work, no matter what job they do?
3) Why are some people against the code of “get in first, leave last” during the initial phase of one’s career?
Readers, feel free to share your opinions on any of the above points and provide feedback from the podcast!
