Recently I had the pleasure of being a guest on the Be Real Show with Travis ” 2TALLIN’ ” Tuff. He was a great host.
The Be Real Show is focused on the helping advertising agencies, PR firms, digital agencies, and marketing consultants learn strategies for social media & business.
On Episode #139, Travis had me as a guest to tell his listeners about an innovative way to invest for the long haul, whether the market is going up, going down, or staying flat. The secret is AIM, the Automated Investing Method. Even better is using AIM with LEAPS – long term options.
As far as I know, I’m the only person in the world who is teaching people how to use AIM with LEAPS. In this podcast episode, we “be real” with you about investing, saving for retirement, the stock market, and a lot more.
