Happy Monday, Barry.
It's Leo here, coming at you from the support desk.
I hope this finds you coming off a well-rested, or at least productively-fun, weekend.
It might have been a boring (i.e., low-scoring) Super Bowl LIII (53). But, really... is there now any doubt that Tom Brady is the NFL's G.O.A.T (Greatest Of All Time)?
Speaking of excellence, when it comes to building wealth through the art of investing, Brad and Barry have already taught me that it's NOT my job to be an expert at everything.
It's not in my best interest to be the BEST market analyst, the BEST opportunity investigator, the BEST trader, the BEST speculator of___ (fill in the blank with any myriad of investment vehicles), etc, etc.
In other words, I've seen my B-bosses (Brad and Barry) constantly focus on finding the 'BEST in class speculators and opportunity-makers', not try and sell our members on why they personally are themselves.
Certainly, they can't help put raise their own game by bumping shoulders with world-class people (rainmakers and money-shakers, to throw some urban lingo your way).
You Barry, like me, have heard the phrase, "It's not what you know, it's who you know."
When push comes to shove, that is the core philosophy that drives our research and testing here at M4.
We simply want to know WHO 'out there' (not in here at the M4 HQ) is doing great things with their money; WHO has a sustainable and verifiable track-record; WHO has put together a system or approach to multiplying their wealth; WHO is a specialist at doing ONE main thing well.
It reminds me of the legal secretary from Brooklyn, Sylia Bloom, who for over 60-years quietly duplicated her boss's investments.
"She did this by shrewdly observing the investments made by the lawyers she served." (NY Times)
Basically, Ms. Bloom leveraged her time and efforts through the success of those who were more resourceful, more in the know, than she.
She wasn't envious of them. She didn't feel she needed to know as much. She simply focused her time and efforts by mirroring their trades with smaller investments of her own.
That brings me to the first order of premium content we'll fast be putting the final touches on THIS WEEK.
