I won’t apologize for spending money


As you may have seen last week, J.D. is gallivanting in Europe again though this time it involves more work than pleasure, and so I’m (Jim) back. Did you miss me?

If so, I’ll be on deck to curate over the next two weeks.

If not, well, I hope you’ll give me a chance to win you over!

I Won’t Apologize For Spending Money [Passive Income M.D.] – “Recently, a few of my family members expressed some concern over my spending habits. They said to me, in essence, that I was spending too much.” The broader message here is that what you see on the surface is only part of the story. Just as how 90% of an iceberg is below the water’s surface, you can’t tell much about one’s financial situation from the outside.

The 5 Secret Levels in the Game of Money (and How to Beat Them…) [My Money Wizard] – “Money is nothing more than a real life video game. And not just any game, either. ‘Money’ might as well be the most complex Role Playing Game (RPG) ever developed.” This is an interesting framework with which to play the game of money & life.

Podcast sponsorship revenue continues to fuel NPR’s financial growth [Current] – This may be a little inside baseball for other creators but podcast sponsorships are for real. “NPR is projecting that podcast sponsorship revenues will surpass revenues from broadcast sponsorships next year for the first time.” This reminds me of when advertising started moving away from “traditional” platforms and toward “digital” platforms.

I love when masters of something (anything) talk about their craft. For today, I want to leave you with this Wired video featuring Gentry Stein. Stein is a world yo-yo champion and he talks about his mastery. There’s a little yo-yo history but the fun part is when Stein goes to work.
