What people are saying…
Worth Every Penny
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
I appreciate the hard work Mitch at spintwig.com did backtesting a complex trading strategy for me. His research was worth every penny!
His backtesting not only confirmed some trading pattern suspicions that I had, but he also uncovered a lucrative pattern I had not even considered. I highly recommend his backtesting service without reservation!
An Exceptional Value
Over $42,000 in 8 Months
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
You brainstormed ways for me to make passive income and motivated me to think twice about my purchases.
By following your guidance I’ve been able to defer thousands in taxes and invest over $42,000 in eight months.
You are my efficiency hero!
Retirement as a Realistic Option
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
I have meetings coming up with my workplace and retirement account holders – meeting with you first has informed my discussions with them and I’m so glad I ran across your services. Best of all I can see retirement as a realistic option for me next year!
I am telling all my friends about you, your consultation services and the tools offered at Spintwig.com.
I Learn Something Every Time
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
Just because you think you know it, doesn’t make it any less impactful when someone proves it. I love reading spintwig’s posts, even if it confirms what I already knew. Sometimes it doesn’t.
Information is valuable. Data-backed information is especially so. I 100% appreciate these posts. I learn something every time, even if it is to make me more confident in a certain direction.
Home Ownership a Possibility
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
Over the course of six years, Mitch’s advise has helped me pay off all credit card debt, make a smarter purchase on a car and pay it off, and optimally pay off student loan debt.
Before Mitch, I didn’t realize owning my own home was a possibility. Our talks have helped me purchase a home and pay off 35% of the mortgage over three years.
In meeting Mitch, my point of view on spending and saving money has changed drastically.
