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. Smiley Happy

It is only the beginning. 

 

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