Do you need a little help in the time and productivity area?

If you are one of the very few people that DOES NOT have problems controlling all the projects they have and the amount of time they have to do them, feel free to skip this great article published in Business Insider titled “26 Time Management Hacks I Wish I’d Known at 20” put together by Max Nisen. For the rest of us it just might save us a little frustration!

Now is a great time to think about what we don’t know about investing…

Another year has flown by and many people are making New Year’s resolutions that will fade well before January ends. Prognosticators are out in droves telling us what will happen with everything from how we will dress to when the world will end. There will be people in the financial circles telling us the economy and the stock market will go up, or the economy and the stock market will go down. And, of course it will. The truth is no one really knows the future.

When it comes to investing there seems to be quite a lot we don’t actually know so I thought it would be a good time for us to review a great article by Allan Roth titled “5 things to know you don’t know about investing.” Some writers have the gift of explaining things simply so we can all ‘get it’. Allan is certainly one of those writers! Some of you have already seen this article since it is now in my handouts for our ‘Get Acquainted’ meetings. The wonderful message in the article is not only that you and I don’t know these things, but that no one does. So if you happen to be talking to a friend, neighbor or even a person that claims to be an expert, and they start to act like they know all about those things – hang on tight to your wallet and run away quickly.

A little knowledge about what you don’t know can be a very powerful thing. I hope you enjoy the article!
