I never heard of Lou before this podcast, but enjoyed the interview. He is dead-on about the best way to buy cars.

I am one of the Trustees for an Adult Community, also the Treasurer. We presently have funds invested with a bank mostly in CD’s. Can you work with us as a consultant to find better returns? If so, what would be the fee and how do you compute?
Please contact me at the above email.
I used to work at your brother’s realty company.
