June 2015 Content Curation



Share this:


Mr. CEO here!!!!  This month is MY month to provide some content.  So, as GYFG always starts off with:

This monthly series is my (Mr. CEO’s) attempt to curate the web for you. I probably consume more content than one person should (I have three kids so I don’t consume as much as GYFG, but I am using Feedly and have definitely been stepping the content up since I got on there), but I am kind of a knowledge junkie. I don’t just consume content for the sake of consumption (because again, as noted, I have KIDS). The goal is to always learn something, gain a new perspective, contribute to the conversation, and fuel the idea factory. Reading is exercise for the brain and just like the body it needs plenty of it to stay healthy.

In any given month I try to read at least 3-5 books (I try to read one each month). I also have over 100 different blogs that I follow from my Feedly app (I am sitting at about 25 right now). In addition to the books and the blogs, I also listen to about a dozen podcasts (just one right now consistently and it’s because of GYFG’s podcast there – www.designthelifeyouwant.com). And then there is always the unplanned material that I stumble across or that gets shared with me (surprisingly, Facebook friends share a decent amount of articles with me during the month).

With that said here are the ones I thought were worth sharing. They only represent a small percentage of what I actually read, but if you have the time they are worth checking out.

Gen Y Finance Guy

Hey, I’m Dom - the man behind the cartoon. You’ll notice that I sign off as "Gen Y Finance Guy" on all my posts, due to the fact that I write this blog anonymously (at least for now). I like to think of myself as the Chief Freedom Officer here of my little corner of the internet. In the real world, I’m a former 30-something C-Suite executive turned entrepreneur turned capital allocator. I am trying to humanize finance by sharing my own journey to Financial Freedom. I believe in total honesty and transparency. That is why before I ever started blogging, I decided that I would share all of my own financial stats. I do this not to brag, but instead to inspire motivate, and also to hold myself accountable. My goal is to be a beacon of hope, motivation, and inspiration, for you, the reader, by living life by example and sharing it all here on the blog. My sincere hope is that you will be able to learn from me - both from my successes and my failures! Read More
