Episode: 167

JL Collins

Join your host David Pere and Alex Felice in this episode with guest JL Collins as they talk about how investing in index funds reward those who are disinterested and don’t want to put in too much effort in investing.

When the topic on fast investing and market volatility was discussed, JL used a mug of beer as an analogy to illustrate index funds and investing in assets that quickly dissipates after a hype dies down. His analogy raises the question: “How much of your portfolio is beer and how much is foam?”

In this episode, JL helps us easily understand the self-cleansing properties of index funds, why index funds are simply the most powerful way to invest, and an overview of The Simple Path to Wealth and why the effortless investor loves it.

My name is David Pere, I am an active duty Marine, and have realized that service members and the working class use the phrase "I don't get paid enough" entirely too often. The reality is that most often our financial situation is self-inflicted. After having success with real estate investing, I started From Military to Millionaire to teach personal finance and real estate investing to service members and the working class. As a result, I have helped many of my readers increase their savings gap, and increase their chances of achieving financial freedom! - Click here to SUBSCRIBE: https://bit.ly/2Q3EvfE to the channel for more awesome videos!
