I have always felt that you learn a lot more from failures than you do successes. You figure out quickly with whom you want to be in the foxhole. When it comes to your personal finances and the future well-being of your family, you don’t want to find yourself in the foxhole with the wrong team. I found the information in this book around finding that right team to be particularly helpful.
