When she was growing up, Danielle Town never liked the words finance, stocks, or portfolio. The daughter of the successful investor and bestselling financial author of Rule #1, Phil Town, she spent most of her adult life avoiding investing—until she found herself stuck in an all-consuming legal career where she felt both her money and her life were out of control. Determined to regain her financial freedom and put her money to work in a socially responsible way, Danielle asked her father to help her take charge of her future by teaching her Warren Buffett–style value investing. What began as a series of conversations between them eventually turned into a year-long investing plan and the hit personal-finance podcast InvestED. Over the course of that year, Danielle went from being an extremely reluctant investor to knowing exactly how and when to invest in wonderful companies.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
