After some time off to end the year, we’re back and refreshed for our first edition of Top Links in the new year! Even though a lot of things in 2020 were less than ideal, the quality of content in the industry was stellar. Looking forward to more of the same in 2021!
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
‘Golden Age Thinking’ – Ben Carlson – A Wealth of Common Sense
- Nostalgia is a powerful feeling, but be careful falling into its trap. Ben writes about the “golden age thinking” many people fall victim too, and how it impacts their views on the present world today. An important message as we enter 2021.
‘January 1st’ – Tom Mullooly – Mullooly Asset Management
- Every year we have new resolutions and aspirations for the year to come. We make big plans and get motivated, and then we take the first day of the year off. Tom writes about what he does on January 1st, and how it sets the stage for our firm.
‘Those Messy Humans’ – Adam Grossman – Humble Dollar
- There are a handful of formulas to figure out market and asset prices, but people and their emotions sometimes get in the way. Adam writes about 4 important factors that impact humans and their finances.
‘Why Haven’t I Heard From My Advisor Recently?’ – Mullooly Asset Show
- In last week’s video, Tom highlighted how certain large firms are changing the way their brokers get paid. If you haven’t heard from your advisor/broker recently, it might be a good idea to look at their payment structures.
