An Interview with CashRulez

Last updated: 2/8/2016
The Fool:
What has been your best work experience, and what made it so great?
CashRulez:
My senior year of undergrad, I purchased a local pizza place. It didn't turn into Papa John's but in 3 years, I was able to triple revenue, sponsor a team that went made it to the Semifinals of the Little League World Series, and manage high school kids you can be proud of.
The Fool:
What's the one thing you'd MOST like to see The Motley Fool add to our service or improve upon?
CashRulez:
I would like to be able to add to my CAPS positions.
The Fool:
Given a second chance, what financial decision would you like to do over?
CashRulez:
I would not buy a small business for the 2nd time. I can do much better investing in companies with better managers than me and stronger business models than a gas station.

How I Invest

Growth at a reasonable price & Value at a reasonable price Same thing right?
