They deserve it for avoiding the holdco sale alone. Pioneering a new model of getting rich for the rest of us.

This year was much less of a train wreck than last year. But yeah, still a few questionable calls on there. The agency that did that universally hated Olay super bowl spot made the honorable mentions🤷‍♂️

Any advice on books, podcasts or websites about beginner money and specifically investing in the market (mutual funds, stocks, etc) that is geared toward teens or college age kids? My Christmas gift to my 19 year old nieces is going to be helping them open their “first” brokerage account and putting some seed money into it and helping them learn how to manage and invest. Any recommendations of age appropriate/beginner resources for that demographic?
