Brian’s mission is “to spread financial wellness.” He does so by writing articles for The Motley Fool, appearing on podcasts and live streams, and through a newsletter called Long Term Mindset. He loves to connect with other investors online, especially on Fool.com and Twitter.

Brian has called Rhode Island home for most of his life and has been happily married for more than 15 years. He has three children who bring him tremendous joy and keep him on his toes

Brian’s favorite things to do are hang out with friends and family, watch his kids play sports, play games, listen to podcasts, dominate at trivia, chat around campfires, and volunteer in his community

Why did you write this book?

As an avid investor, nothing makes me more frustrated than when I see ads for financial services that make it sound like this is all “unknowable” or “complicated.” Really, the stock market isn’t all that complicated, but for generations that has been the message to everyone. And, none of this is really taught in school.

Brian has written a book you can hand to anyone and know that they’ll become smarter, happier, and richer for it. Required reading for those seeking lifelong profit from lifelong investment.
