Trust but verify. Do you listen to media, teachers, etc. and blindly trust the information given? When listening to information or insight it is ok to trust, but you must verify. The vast majority of people choose to never second guess the source.

Michael’s first aha moment with looking outside the box was discovering the turtle story. There were a few things that caught his interest about the story–the trading experiment was seemingly repeatable, that systematic kind of trading was teachable and doable for anyone, and many of those involved in the experiment had moved on and made fortunes. Discovering trend following through the turtles led to many other avenues for Michael, including this podcast. Michael shares some of those insights learned over the years, including what he has learned during the evolution of this podcast.
