Wow, you were enormously prepared for that interview. That makes it so much easier for a guest and makes an interview flow really smoothly.

One thing that I might note about David’s investment strategy in March of last year is that his risk profile is totally different than that of an average investor. It sounds like he has a ton of money. So risking some on financial stocks back when we weren’t sure which banks were going to survive was a bet he could make without worrying about completely upsetting his future. I think most investors, who are barely saving enough to retire on as it is, probably wouldn’t want to go for those high-risk, potentially high-return bets. I’d much rather that person stick with index funds or ETFs.

Anyway, it’s nice to see him on the show. It’s really well produced.

Great job Tom and Flexo! Another FANTASTIC interview! Very inspiring.

Thanks David for being genuine. You on the personal finance blog circuit for us to do book reviews and giveaways? If so, let us know! You’re one of my favorite writers, and I’ve read every single one of your series.

Good luck with your new life!
