Rank #1: Why I Hired A Real Advisor - Part 3

Podcast cover
Read more
This episode concludes my three-part series on why I hired a real financial advisor. Even though I'm an advisor, I'm also human. Being human means I'm still open to making emotional decisions. So to avoid making the big mistakes of buying high or selling low, I can benefit from having someone stand between me and doing something stupid.

How often do we pretend that endless research is a useful way to spend our time? This question leads to another interesting question.

Podcast cover

People who are "up to something" are my favorite people. It doesn't even matter WHAT they are up to. Just so long as they have that special look in their eye.

So what are YOU up to? Or better yet, what do you WANT to be up to?

Rank #6: Steep Learning Curve

Podcast cover
Read more
There's a feeling that comes with being a beginner. But we sometimes avoid doing new things because a steep learning curve can be painful --- emotionally, physically, mentally. The power of being a beginner though can help build stoke. So, what if instead of avoiding that feeling we sought it out?

Rank #7: Humility As an Advisor, Part 2

Podcast cover
Read more
Practicing humility means we need to address the confirmation bias head on. After all, if we're only reading, hearing, and seeing a point of view that we agree with, it's hard to learn something new or see where we might be wrong.

Rank #8: Learning to Cope with Anxiety

Podcast cover
Read more
In order to both do our work as real advisors AND do it for a long time, we need to do a better job taking care of ourselves. Because here's the reality. Our clients need a place they can come to dump their anxiety, and if we aren't taking care of ourselves, we'll drown beneath their anxieties and our own anxieties, too.

Rank #10: Make It Simple

Podcast cover
Read more
Every time I suggest financial advisors keep things simple, I hear a pretty common fear. "If it's too simple, they won't need us anymore." I get it, but I also want you to remember that the real reason people are working with advisors doesn't stop when you stop using jargon and help people cut through the complexity.

One of the things that I have been thinking a lot about today and talked with a good friend here in India on walk today, we walked through a section of Mumbai, and while we were walking, we were talking about the role of money and happiness.

Rank #16: Entrepreneurship Series 02: Inserting Your Opinion Into the World

Podcast cover

The stereotypes we associate with business - boring, guys in suits, only about profit - aren't the only options available to us. For me, I see creating and building a business as a way to insert our opinion into the world. That's why entrepreneurship, at its core, is about creativity. Just imagine the difference you can make in the world if you choose to make your business a platform for supporting the change you want to see. To learn more, visit behaviorgap.com.

One of the hardest things for humans to do is allow a little slack in our systems. Of course, we should be going all the time. We're wasting time if we don't...except it leaves no room to avoid burn out. What happens when we add some slack and give ourselves room to breathe, to reinvest?
