Seventeen Inches!

For the past 2 years I've been diligently typing out my journey with my note investing business. Each of those emails have always been my own creation, thoughts and experiences.

I had to be creative to fix what I broke. Some of you might not understand this, but this was before the internet. I couldn't go to…
