Welcome listeners, the royals are in town this week and it was hard to ignore so Steph kicked us off with her admiration of the new Princess before we discuss the serious investor topics of the stock market correction – listen and enjoy.

The Sky Didn’t Fall

We dramatically titled our last episode “The Sky Is Falling” after the stock market decline that was happening.  Well here we are a week later and the Sky Didn’t Fall.
