Insanely busy week here with meeting and travel.  As such – a lot of links below are podcasts that have been interesting

Food for Thought

  • Freakonomics – Is the U.S. Really Less Corrupt Than China — and How About Russia?  The political scientist Yuen Yuen Ang argues that different forms of government create different styles of corruption. 
  • Art of Gathering – The Math and the PoetryHow one couple figured out a beautiful structure for their wedding’s cocktail hour.
  • CollaborativeFund – Staying Put  One I thought about recently after watching a few friends manage their careers is the value of staying put.
  • Honestly – Your Attention Didn’t Collapse, It was Stolen.  The average American adult spends over three hours a day staring into their phone. If you’re a teenager it’s even worse – seven hours. What’s really troubling is that in study after study, people say that they want to be looking at their screens less. They just don’t know how. They’ve lost control.

My Book:

When Anything is Possible – Wealth and the Art of Strategic Living

  • Does how you handle your wealth actually align with what you care most about in the world?
  • Do you feel like you are pro-active and intentional with your financial affairs or entirely reactive to a busy world?

Growing financial wealth is a natural occurrence on the path to success. While this should make life easier, that is not always the case. With greater wealth, comes great opportunity and an overwhelming number of choices to make.

When Anything is Possible is the guidebook about how to engage strategically with wealth. It will help you change your wealth from something overwhelming and all-consuming towards a resource to be deployed to help you positively impact the things that you value most.
