Hey hey, money nerds. As promised, I’m back with a bonus Saturday installment this week because I forgot to publish links on Thursday. I can’t deprive you of your weekly quota! Here’s what I have for you today.
The secrets of stealth wealth. [Financial Imagineer] — “Stealth wealth is the opposite of conspicuous consumption, it’s about finding true wealth and quality of life which financial freedom helps to unlock. It’s all about having the ability to do what you want, when and where you want with whomever you like to. It’s all about having to focus less on money and having more time, freedom, and peace. Once you understand this, your world will change for the better.”
Secrets of a professional negotiator. [The Retirement Manifesto] — “For the final nine years of my career, I was paid to negotiate. It feels strange saying this, but the fact is that I was a professional negotiator. I negotiated for a living. It’s time to share my secrets: The secrets of a professional negotiator.”
How to detach yourself from your financial wins and losses. [The Root of All] — “The way to train yourself to detach from the emotional pull of wins and losses is to put all your energy into your response. While we can’t know whether an event is good or bad, we do know the quality of our response. It is always possible to respond virtuously in any situation. It’s always possible to do good.”
And that’s all I have for you this week. Jim will return on Monday to share more personal-finance goodness with you. See you then!
