Stitcher – LISTEN HERE


Thank you for tuning into episode 46 of the Mind of a Millionaire podcast. Last Wednesday was Bike to Work Day here in Denver. In honor of the environmental awareness day, we hosted our own station on the back courtyard of our building, offering Santiago’s breakfast burritos and DWM sunglasses to participants. At a point during the morning, we got a visit and mention from an associate of the BJ & Jamie Morning Show, which had listeners sending in some questions.

If you have any questions of your own, please feel free to send them in. We would be happy to answer any of your financial questions. For daily personal finance tips, follow us on Twitter. For DWM news and events, follow us on Facebook. And for economic insights and DWM event invitations, be sure you’re signed up for our email club.
