What football can teach us about leadership… and investing


Today’s show offers a fun twist: investment advice from non-investors… And it’s part one of a two-part series. Mike will release part two on Friday for your weekend reading, so be sure to check your inbox.


Just as art imitates life… football imitates leadership and investing.

Today’s guest is Angus Reid, 13-year Canadian Football League (CFL) pro and two-time Grey Cup champion [21:33]. He’s also the author of Thank You Coach, which details the lessons he learned playing for mentor and coach, Dan Dorazio.
