Weekly Mixtape for August 18th, 2017

Every Friday I’ll be releasing my own compilation, a mixtape if you will, of blog posts from the week I think are worth your time.

In the Hoosier State summer is officially over; the calendar might say there are a few weeks left, but school is back in session across the state and the Indiana State Fair is about to wrap up. We’re planning on making a trip down to the fairgrounds to ride a few rides, check out the animals, and try to listen to a concert from outside the grandstands. One thing we will not be doing is consuming the State Fair food–if you’ve never been, I’m talking about deep-fried Oreos, turkey legs, deep-fried butter, and chocolate covered bacon. For many, the fair is an excuse to eat food you’d never eat outside of the fairgrounds–it’s tradition for some. Well, maybe we’ll indulge with an elephant ear.

Here’s this weeks reads–hope you enjoy!

Indy Star: 10 New Indiana State Fair Foods That Will Make You Cry Tears of Joy Just to give you an idea of what Hoosiers have been eating at the fair. This might help explain why Indiana is one of the least healthy states!?!

Bob Seawright: Always Invert You have to read this for the initial story and vide, but make sure to continue to reading to the end because Bob does a great job educating. I really enjoyed this one.

A Wealth of Common Sense: A La Carte Financial Advice I’ve been pretty vocal about the role of an advisor and the value we provide to our clients. I agree with Ben on his pushback to Jason Zweig and Morgan Housel, both I respect greatly and they often show up on my mixtapes.

A Wealth of Common Sense: The Biggest Common Investment Errors Creating a document (or investment policy statement in industry-speak) that lists how you plan to invest, save, your goals, constraints, etc. is something I’m guessing 90-95% of investors don’t do or never use.”

Another good one from Ben; if you’re new to investing, or even if you’ve been investing for awhile make sure to read this one to remind yourself of common mistakes investors make. Hopefully, if you are aware of them you are more likely to avoid them.

Cleantechnica: Millennials Are Driving Global Sustainable Investment ESG Investing and Socially Responsible Investing has become one of my favorite topics…I’ll continue to share to spread the word.

All About Your Benjamins: The Important Things One of my personal favorites.
