About Wealth. He is in the stage that wealth is not a problem.

On practice in stock market and real estate market. He treated everything as a mathematic model. Money is just a side effect. On the market, everything he does is to practice self-discipline – it needs a lot of courage and discipline to say no to many attractive, but not disciplined opportunities. By saying no many times, the self-discipline gets better and better.
Many other good stuff. Nice time. As Bob mentioned in his twitter, it is not time together, it is “qualified time” together.
