An Interview with TMFArchitect

Last updated: 11/20/2017
The Fool:
Given a second chance, what financial decision would you like to do over?
TMFArchitect:
I didn't start investing until I was almost 27. I wish I had started when I took my first job in high school.
The Fool:
Briefly explain how you select stocks.
TMFArchitect:
My portfolio is almost entirely made up of companies from Million Dollar Portfolio, Supernova's Odyssey & Explorer, and the Everlasting Portfolio. However, I always have my ears open to investing opportunities.
The Fool:
What do you fear most?
TMFArchitect:
Failure... no, snakes! Definitely snakes.
