    Damien, I’m so time poor I don’t usually listen to the MB podcasts (I might over weekend) but damn if I’m not impressed for you doing them.

    At some point I’m probably going to go into MB investments. Delay is because I love investing myself (and have the skill set to do it). I enjoy your work.
