Lynn says: “I can track the few times in my life that I have made not so great financial decisions around investing. In my case it came down to the fact that my fears were running full throttle and I was looking for someone to save me. I was too busy to make time to really learn about what I was investing in. This is now something I teach people not to do. Getting wealthy takes time and courage and support.”
