Circle of Competence Podcast Ep. #07 - David Gardner, Chairman, The Motley Fool
Note to self before podcasting: don't forget to check your mic's batteries! Half of my audio for this episode was crystal clear (thanks to my great Heil mic), and the latter half was a bit less so due to my recorder's batteries dying! But nonetheless, this was a fun conversation with a true long-term investor who only invests in the companies he believes will deliver a better future.
David Gardner is the founder of the Motley Fool, a financial advisor and media conglomerate focused on helping the world become happier, smarter, and richer through investing. In this wide-ranging conversation, we discuss the founding of The Motley Fool, his 6-part "Rulebreakers" investment framework, why valuation may not be the most important metric to pay attention to, conscious capitalism, and more.
