Mark, Quintin, and Mounir - three young millionaires-in-the-making - are young investors building their wealth and striving to achieve financial fitness. Mark is a 25-year-old investor focused on building his long-term wealth by making small investments early and reaping the rewards of compound interest. Quintin is a 20-year-old university student who is making his money work for him by investing a portion of his bi-weekly paychecks into the cannabis industry. Mounir, a 25-year-old investor who began his journey into investing while attending university, strives for financial fitness by diversifying his portfolio.

Mark, Quintin, and Mounir join me today to share their experience as young investors.
