It’s been a minute since the ETF Exchange conference ended and I’ve been wanting to share some thoughts from my quick trip to Miami. Better late than never… First, I want to give a huge shoutout to Matt Middleton, Tom Lydon, Dave Nadig, Matt Hougan, John Swolfs, Tom Hendrickson, and their team for putting on an outstanding conference.

Yesterday’s Price Is Not Today’s Price

Pusha T, one of of my favorite artists, released a new single this week–“Diet Coke”. The song leads in with a sample from Fat Joe where he emphatically suggests that “yesterday’s price is not today’s price”. The song has been on heavy rotation since it came out and the more I hear Fat Joe kick off the song, the more…

Watch For The Signs

Sometimes the important signs are right in front of you—you just have to allow them to reveal themselves. I walked over this message spray-painted on the sidewalk the other day while I was in New York City for the Bitcoin For Advisors conference.

RLS Wealth Turns Six

Even though the time stamp on this IG post is May 23rd, July 3rd, 2015 will forever be the birthdate for RLS Wealth. Today marks the sixth birthday for RLS Wealth and as I shared with clients this morning in an email, I don’t think I’ll ever not be excited on July 3rd—if I do, then I think it’s time…

Build The Addition

Today was one of those days that remind financial advisors how personal our business really is. This morning I received a phone call informing me that one of my long-time clients had a massive heart attack and died on Tuesday. He was on an RV trip out west with his wife and friends–one minute he was taking a picture and…

You Are Your Life’s Creative Director

You have a vision of the life you want for you and your family. It’s your vision—no one else’s. Yet, the constraints of society, family, friends, individuals we only know from social media, managers at work, and a number of other influences prevent you from taking your vision and making it your reality. The short-sightedness of others is holding YOU…

Impact

“My purpose is to live a fulfilled life, achieve my goals, and make a lasting impact on others, while at the same time guiding others to their own fulfillment by supporting them and encouraging them to step out of their comfort zone to achieve their goals.” Last March I began working with a coach to start practicing meditation.
