Here at The Motley Fool, our purpose is to make the world smarter, happier, and richer. While other companies may try to make you smarter, or happier, or richer, we aim to do all three at the same time.
Our name comes from Shakespeare. The Fool (aka court jester) is the one person who, through humor, can speak the truth to the king and queen without having their head lopped off. In the same way, we aim to speak the truth about money and investing…and have a pretty good time doing it.
Despite our humble beginnings, we now help millions of people around the world achieve their financial goals every day. It’s rewarding work alongside driven, talented people who aren’t afraid to be Foolish. Not a bad way to make a living.
