Fall Investing + Money News to Inspire You

I just returned from Fincon 2015, a peer conference for the financial media community. Now, I’m totally inspired with too much to do on my plate.

In conjunction with the exciting conference, I also co-launched Young and Oldish Money Podcast with my partner, Bobby Lee of 2 Minute If any of you have launched a new endeavor, then you understand; there’s the first part of content creation, in this case, recording many episodes of the podcast for publication. Next, and equally as challenging, is promoting the product.
