Morgan Housel (@morganhousel) sits down with host Sahil Bloom for a deep dive on money and success. Morgan shares the powerful story of how he went from a 20-year-old with an 8th-grade education to a distinguished writer and partner at The Collaborative Fund. We also cover humility, independence, and insecurity. Three assets that have helped drive Morgan's success, as well as financial caution and the importance of over-preparedness.
