Episode 5 Details

In episode 5 we discuss not chasing every deal and beating FOMO for your own sanity. We dive into Las Vegas’ latest despicable fee and how resort fees in general are getting out of control. Shawn and Mark also give an overview of their week at FinCon & CardCon and why meetups and conferences are important in this space.  They also overview their stay at the Park Hyatt in DC, go over some quick deals and there are some outtakes of course!
