Episode 197: Buying Your Time Back

Walter Scott of Whelan Scott Asset Management

“I kind of think we got back to what we do best, and that's to be in front of our clients, talk to them directly, sit at their kitchen tables, and we felt the best way to continue to grow is really with the two of us doing what we do best.” – Walter Scott
