4/21/2022 Change of Heart

After a few friendly calls I had this week with people telling me how much they respect and miss me, I've decided to revert back to keeping the investment club free. I've learned that the great friends I've made over the last several years on this journey are more important to me than the money. Without these people, I would not be the person I am today. Even though this investment club cost me thousands of dollars a year to operate, there are people out there that I truly miss seeing around. I guess I'll figure out how to make this work and stand by the community. I'm going to need all your help to make this sustainable as inflation is not on our side here. :')
