Re: It's a marathon, not a sprint

It takes time to build the "perfect for you" portfolio. But the time invested can pay off very well.

 

OP - well put for sure!

I want to bump this thought, as I just finished rearranging my wallet to accomodate my brand new cards. I'm so happy with my current portfolio, and "perfect for me" sums it up! It's taken time and patience for me to reach the point where I was able to get these cards, but it was well worth the wait. :smileyhappy:

It is only the beginning. 

 

It is more than a marathon, it is a tour.

Yes! then you feel like have the "perfect" number of cards, "perfect" type of cards, with the right lenders, the "perfect" rewards...everything just seems in order.
