Weekly Mixtape For October 7th, 2017

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

This week’s mixtape may have been the hardest one for me…not due to a lack of good content; I’m convinced there will never be a shortage of good reading. As I checked my Evernote and Twitter likes (where I store my contenders for each mixtape), I did not find as many options as I usually do. I realized I didn’t spend much time this week on social media (not necessarily a bad thing), or reading due to the demands of a growing business and family. No complaints on my end–it’s all good!

I still came across some great posts and will lead your reading off with a non-finance post that was perfect for me given the business of life. I hope you enjoy!

Raptitude.com: How To Get Yourself To Do Things This post came across my Twitter feed at the perfect time; I had my bi-monthly coaching call with my business coach, and I told her for the first time since starting RLWM I felt overwhelmed–overwhelmed in a good way, but overwhelmed nonetheless. There haven’t been enough hours in the day over the last couple of weeks, and while I wouldn’t say I was suffering from procrastination, there were plenty of areas to focus on in this post. I really enjoyed it and hope it might help some of you out there suffering from getting started on those things you’ve been delaying.

A Wealth of Common Sense: Good Advice vs. Effective Advice It’s easy to give good advice–plenty of people know what to say. But, developing the plan and actions to actually arrive at the desired outcome is much different. This applies to everything, not just finance.

Dan Egan: Visualizing Risk, Return, and Time This one’s a little geeky…in a good way. But understanding risk is important in investing, and most investor’s “understanding’ of risk is influenced by their most recent experiences. I use a risk tolerance software called Riskalzye, which generates a score for clients based on their answers to hypothetical portfolio scenarios. The scores clients receive today would probably look a lot different back in 2008; the better you understand risk, the better you will be able to maintain your view, regardless if the markets are making daily all-time highs, or you’re staring at an abyss.

ESPN: Meet The Lions Punter Trying To Keep His NFL Colleagues From Going Broke We’ve all read the stories about athletes going broke; I really enjoyed reading how one player is trying to help his peers become better with their money.
