Enjoy this week’s newsletter. 🙂
P.S. – I’m experimenting with a new format. Feel free to hit reply and tell me what you think.
As with all things personal finance, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer — but there are good indicators of when you should sell. These indicators are going to differ depending on your age.
If you’re closer to (or at) retirement age, you’ve likely been investing for a while and can sell your investments to live off of for your retirement.
If you’re younger, though, this isn’t the case. In fact, if you’re in your 20s and 30s, there are three reasons to sell your investments:
There is a quote from Seth Godin I love to post in the Becoming Minimalist Facebook group. It goes like this:
Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don’t need to escape from.
The quote is appreciated by most people who see it. But there are always a few (on any quote that I post) who want to disagree, dissent, and argue with the sentiment.
Showing clients that you’re making them money is one of the most important things you can communicate to them, but it’s tough to know how to present your results in a way they can easily understand.
That’s where Google Data Studio comes in. In this week’s edition of Whiteboard Friday, our friend Dana DiTomaso shares how to create a client-friendly local marketing results dashboard in Google Data Studio from start to finish.
You hear some success stories about new businesses instantly making tons of money, but the reality is often much different. It usually takes years for new companies to make a profit – and that’s if they’re able to stay open at all. Hopefully you’ve planned for this delay in income, but you’re also eager to start bringing in more money.
Are you wondering how to increase profit margin? While there’s no magic way to generate cash, there are some things you can do to steadily improve your financial growth.
You’re not surprised are you?
While the science is pretty clear that artificial sweeteners aren’t directly causing cancer, there is now emerging research that artificial sweeteners can be damaging your gut biome.
Workout of the Week
New to the newsletter this week is a fitness section. Health and fitness is very important to me and it has played a huge role in my success. I want to share some of my habits with you so that you can build them into your life as well.
(Also, I think I might just start my own HIIT workout videos. Why not?)
Quote of the Week

Technically, I’m a millenial. My generation is still struggling in the work force a bit. The reason is because we are still playing by the old rules. GO to school, get an internship, volunteer… get picked. But the chances of being picked is very low.
No one is going to pick you. You have to pick yourself. Our workforce is built by factories and systems. To get picked means to just be another cog in the machine.
In order to succeed in our new world, you have to possess a skill that can’t be replicated by a machine or hired for cheaper labor. You have to be a difference maker.
What are you doing that is making a difference?
You are beautiful. See you next week.
