Imagine this: you're browsing the internet, and you come across a new investing newsletter promising to send you weekly mails with investing ideas that will make you a billionaire in no time. You eagerly sign up, hoping to unlock the secrets to unlimited wealth.

Unfortunately, this is not that kind of newsletter. (But if you do find one, let me know!)
