But, when you simply invest in companies on the stock market, your revenue – if there ever is any – is realized after companies CEO’s are paid, after an army of corporate bureaucrats are paid, and after a swanky corporate office rent is paid, after corporate retreats, after… well, you get the idea.

— The wells is where the money is.
— Everything else is an expense.
— It used to be you had to listen to a hundred different pitches.
