Benjamin Franklin coined a classic quote that we've come to love here at FIG,
"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. When it comes to investing, nothing will pay off more than educating yourself. Do the necessary research, study and analysis before making any investment decisions."
Keep that in mind as you're scrolling through this list. Find the one that suits you best. Find one that will turn your morning routine or your evening commute into the best self-investment decision you've made so far in 2019.
We listen to a lot of podcasts over here at the Fourplex Investment Group, and they've helped us refine our game and be open to new opportunities.
