  1. Congratulations on the milestone and thanks for sharing the link.

    I finally got a Kindle about a week ago and now I’ve read 2.5 of your books in the last couple of days. Great stuff. You explain the issues about LLCs and corporations so well!

  2. Thank you, Wade!

    If you have any questions about the material in the books — or related topics — please ask. 🙂

  3. I LOVE the Time-JD Roth article about 401(k) investing. Every worker with access to a 401(k) should read it!
