1/26/2015
More

If you’ve been listening to Jason Hartman for long, you’ve probably heard him say that he’s not an optimist, but an opportunist. Time, Mother Nature, and Government operate largely independently of us as individuals, so rather than lament the destruction that each of them can cause, we recommend finding ways to make them work in your favor. Time You’ve probably noticed that most people have too much life left at the end of their money, and not the other way around. People are living...
