Money to the Masses

Merry Christmas

As 2019 draws to a close it is with a great sense of pride that I reflect on everything that we have achieved this year at Money to the Masses.

This year saw the team continue to grow allowing us to produce more articles, podcasts and videos than ever. This included over 100 new videos on our YouTube channel, the launch of my Midweek Markets podcast and the release of the 250th episode of the Money to the Masses podcast.

2019 also saw the launch of my Money MOT, our first ever live event and the launch of the Money to the Masses Community. It has certainly been a very busy year and I'd like to thank you all for your continued support. Next year promises to be just as exciting.

This is the last newsletter of 2019 with the next one arriving in your inboxes on 5th January. So I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy Christmas and a healthy and prosperous 2020.
Enjoy this week's newsletter.
