Episode-1718- John Pugliano – Nightmare or Golden Age

John Pugliano of Investable Wealth

John Pugliano of Investable Wealth

Today’s show has no commercial content at all. I am doing a special intro today and skipping the typical house keeping and sponsor segments.  This is due to a youtube video that has come to my attention and an extremely well spoken and educated woman’s take on the BLM issues in Oregon and across the nation.

Rather than beat up the Bundy standoff and dig into it, which will be going on for a very long time.  Let us instead examine the larger issue and comprehend how our citizens have been programmed, vs. educated.

After that I welcome expert council member John Publiano to have a discussion on our economic future.  John Pugliano is the host of the Wealthsteading Podcast and the founder/money manager of Investable Wealth, LLC an independent fee only investment advisory firm.

John served in the military for 7 years before starting a 20 year corporate career in sales and marketing of industrial products. More importantly he followed his passion and honed his skills as an individual investor for over 25 years before becoming an investment advisor.

Understanding the plight of the middle class retail investor, he manages client money using the experience gained while growing his own portfolio.

John practices what he preaches. He believes in first being a disciplined saver, getting your preps in order, and then investing in the stock market. John is a long time TSP listener, he’s a lifetime MSB member, and a PermaEthos charter member.

Today he joins us to discuss the financial and social evolution we are currently seeing unfold.  We will ask tough questions, give honest answers and try to determine if we are on the verge of a golden age, the verge of a nightmare or a bit of both.

Episode-1717- Quail Keeping Q&A Edition

Quail are Uber Productive and Give You Delicious Eggs

Quail are Uber Productive and Give You Delicious Eggs

So I had anohter one of my little ideas for an easy show.  Ask me about quail and I will do what I can to answer them.  Figured a dozen questions might come in, well um yea.  The Regenerative Ag Group on Facebook alone has PAGES of questions on this.

Frankly this makes the Three Hours of Q&A I did on ciders and meads look like a walk in the park!  But I will do my best.

To make this even doable, here is what I decided to do.  There is no way to go though them in real time with like a rapid fire response, so I took about two hours to come up with the questions below.  I have tried to make them as generic as possible.  Some of the more specific questions to an individual I can work into general feedback shows in the future.
