The following are some of our most popular links. Well worth a clicking on:
If you want to read one of the best pieces on the fee debate (AUM vs Fixed), this is it. I’ve felt for a while that much of the industry chatter around moving away from AUM fees was interesting and a debate worth having, but certainly not a trend.

Here’s a great piece on Warren Buffett’s latest and most compelling advice to investors.
This is information we should be communicating to clients and the general public.
Here’s a short video piece from US Navy Seals (guy on the left was obviously carved from granite by God him/herself).

I love these six things that successful people never compromise on. I’ve compromised on all of them at some point in my life, but I really do try to make these things sacred now.
This piece from Nela Canovic at Inc. Magazine was a great reminder.

I’m giving this MUST READ status. Let me know your thoughts.
