I've been a contributor with the Motley Fool since 2019 and it's been a supreme joy to try to help make the world a little smarter, happier, and richer every day. What's great about exploring business and the economy is the insight it gives you into how things are in the world. Prior to this, I spent more than a decade traveling the world exploring different cultures and languages, While I no longer get to exercise my analytical muscles with linguistics, it's rewarding to analyze businesses and share my opinions through this platform.
