August 2015 Content Curation



Share this:

“The art of living easily as to money is to pitch your scale of living one degree below your means.” – Sir Henry Taylor


This monthly series is my attempt to curate the web for you. I probably consume more content than one person should, but I am kind of a knowledge junkie. I don’t just consume content for the sake of consumption. 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 also have over 100 (now down to 50 as I simplify) different blogs that I follow from my Feedly app. In addition to the books and the blogs, I also listen to about a dozen podcasts. And then there is always the unplanned material that I stumble across or that gets shared with me.

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.

This week I thought it would be cool to share my favorite podcasts with you guys. I will preface this proceeding list with the fact that even though I listen to podcast on 2X speed, I still can’t keep up with the pace of all the shows in the list. Instead I kind of binge listen to a bunch of episodes of one podcast before moving on to another one.

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

  1. I’m always looking forward to this post. I always find good posts. Thanks.

    Maybe you could write a little bit more about each podcast? What it is about and what you like about them.

    1. Hey EurFI – Sorry for the delayed reply but I was out of town in a location with no internet. I will put that on my to do list to add some sort of snippit about each podcast on the list.

      1. EurFI- I intended to add some sort of snippet to the podcasts I listed, but I honestly just don’t have the time to do it at this time. I do however encourage you to click through and read a little about each that might be of interest to you. Thanks for reading.
