Josh here – True story, Michael bought a house and had a gap between when his mortgage banker needed cash versus when his apartment in Brooklyn sold. This meant temporarily making sales in his investment account.

This scenario is just one of a million things that happens to investors in the real world, which makes actual results look different from those that can be illustrated by a performance backtest.

We discuss, please let us know what you think in the comments below! And wish Michael congrats on his official Suburban Dadhood! Accomplishment unlocked, new level starts now!
