  1. Value investing the Buffett way.
    • Trying to find things that are on sale
    • People in business school don’t learn the buffet way.
    • Buffet seems to think that this is not accessible to most people.
    • He is constantly telling people to invest in index funds to follow the market.
    • If you can’t put in the time to be as dedicated as he is, then you won’t be able to do it profitably.
  1. Canadian Cannabis Companies
    • How it’s easy to get scammed for $145 million dollars – and then the shareholders get burned.
    • Why it’s so important that you know and trust the management.
  1. The Absolute Essence of Investing.
    • We don’t really need to know how much the business will grow, what we really want to know is: “Will it grow at all?”
    • The focus isn’t on how much money I’m going to make. The focus is: “I’m not going to lose any money on this investment if I buy it right.”
  1. ‘’Many things can happen but the only one will, and we do not know what that one is’’ – Howard Marks
    • The focus for an investor is on the probability of the many things that can happen and in our confidence in our probabilities.
