On this episode of Investing For Freedom, Mike is recording from California, where his middle son is moving to! Mike talks to us about a blog post he wrote about modeling the wealthiest and changing our mindsets to think like them.

“The wealthiest ignore all the buzz and noise going around on the cable news, the internet, and social media about hot investments. They ignore the news and look at the numbers, data, metrics, and trends that never lie.”
