Quote from Elvis Picardo

"I enjoy helping people on their journey towards financial literacy because the benefits of this knowledge can last for a lifetime. Learning about finance and investing has tremendous scope to boost your net worth because it can help you make informed financial decisions, become a disciplined investor, and hopefully avoid expensive investing mistakes."
