Topic of the Week

  • NewYorker – The Far-Seeing Faith of Tim Keller.  It is hard for me to identify a single person who’s thinking/speaking/writing has had a greater impact on my life than that of Tim Keller.  From my own personal faith to even my career, Keller brought voice that won’t be quickly replaced.  

    If you are not religious or don’t know of Keller, you may be quick to think his passing has little impact on your life.  However, the intersection of public life with religious practice as seen in the broader church’s engagement around issues of culture, poverty relief, etc. is and will continue to be profoundly shaped by Keller’s thinking.  “The pastor created a new blueprint for Christian thought, showing how traditional doctrine could address the crisis of modern life.” 
  • WSJ – Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour: A Father-Daughter Guide. In a fractured entertainment world, Taylormania feels like a throwback to another time—a blast of the old FM monoculture that a parent can feel
  • TheAtlantic – The Billion Dollar Ponzi scheme that hooked Warren Buffett and the US TreasuryHow a small-town auto mechanic peddling a green-energy breakthrough pulled off a massive scam
  • TheFreePress – The Parents Saying No to Smartphones. ‘How you help them learn to be present, in a task or with a relationship, is one of the top challenges of our generation. Part of that is going to be saying no.’

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.
