⭐️ Quote To Start Your Week: 

“I think a life properly lived is just learn, learn, learn all the time.” 

Charlie Munger, investor and close partner of American businessman Warren Buffett. Munger passed away last week at age 99. Serving as vice chairman of Berkshire Hathaway and well known for his sage investing advice, he had an estimated net worth of $2.2 billion and spent his life living frugally and donating millions to universities and organizations.

Tuesday: Fox News scheduled to host a town hall in Iowa with former President Donald Trump one day before the fourth GOP primary debate; Pres. Trump has not participated in any GOP debates thus far. And, on this day in 1901, Walt Disney was born. Over the course of his 43-year Hollywood career, he transformed the art of movie making.  

Wednesday: The fourth Republican presidential primary debate in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, at the University of Alabama. The event will likely feature Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, former United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy – and may serve as the final primary debate before first-in-the-nation" voting begins in less than six weeks. Also, on this day in 1884, workers set the final stone on the Washington Monument. For more, click here.
