Weekly Mixtape for May 5, 2007


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.

I’ve read one of the secrets to success in writing is consistency, so although this week’s Mixtape is going up at 11:00 Friday night, it’s still going up on Friday…I haven’t missed one in 8 weeks. That’s a small win, and I’ll take it!

Since it’s late, I’m going to keep the pre-reading commentary to a minimum. Enjoy!

Flirting With Models: Why Quants Don’t Pick Stocks  Corey might be the smartest person I’ve met in person; I recently asked him for some help on a project I’m working on, and he was kind enough to help. I was overwhelmed (in a good way) by the complexity of what he was able to cover in an email. Smart dude doing good things.

The Reformed Broker: These Are Your Five Choices Oops, I did it again. Another Josh Brown post. His stuff is too good not to include; it’s actually harder for me to not have one of his posts every week, than it is to pick one.

Optimistic Millennial: 5 Money Habits To Master Before You Turn 30 Habits to master no matter your age.

Collaborative Fund: Stories vs. Statistics I’ve really enjoyed following the writers at the Collaborative Fund–they seem to be doing some really cool stuff, and Morgan is hands down one of my favorite writers right now.

All About Your Benjamins: The Important Things It may be tacky to include my own post, but this post has gotten the most response from readers of any that I’ve written. The cool thing is it had nothing to do with investing, money, or financial planning. I can’t wait to write another piece that moves people the way this one has seemed to.
