TheLiveBigWay® Digest: The Investment Answer
The Investment Answer?
In today’s world, you can find an answer to almost any question in seconds thanks to the minicomputers (read: smartphones) in our pockets. When it comes to money and finances, many people hope for an easy answer to questions like “How do I get rich quick?” We don’t believe in trying to outsmart the market and get rich quick, but play along with us as we share the investment answer to end all questions about what to do with your money.
Live Big vs. Live Large
We are often asked to define the phrase, Live Big®. Sometimes we follow up by offering our belief that it’s about the size of your life, not the size of your wallet®, and other times we share an explanation of the difference between Live Big and live large. We recently came across a New York Times article that we think brilliantly helps to make the distinction (and we think you’ll be surprised by the topic!). Learn more about the different philosophies here.
Navigating Meaningful Financial Change
Just as we appreciate the opportunity to learn from others, we also appreciate the opportunity to share our expertise with others to contribute to the community of trusted knowledge we all depend on. In this vein, Dr. Dave Yeske recently spoke with Shaun Maslyk, creator of the podcast, The Most Hated F-Word (F stands for finances). In the podcast, Dave takes listeners on a thought-provoking exploration of the hidden depths of our financial lives to reveal how curiosity and compassion can unlock a path to a more fulfilling and balanced approach. Check it out here.
Word of the Week: Values
Today’s articles highlight the importance of prioritizing your personal values. Values are the guiding principles that shape our lives. They help us identify what is most important to us, and often serve as motivators for the ways we think and act. They are so integral to who we are that when there’s a disconnect between our values and how we spend our resources (time, energy, skills, and money), inner conflict or dissatisfaction will result. Start defining your personal values through this explorative worksheet.
Where in the World is the Live Big Glass, Now?
Where in the world might the Live Big glass travel this summer, you might ask? This question can be answered by YOU! As you enjoy your Live Big experiences this summer, we hope you’ll capture the moment and send us your photos to continue to remind us that Live Big is about the size of your life, not the size of your wallet.
Our summer Live Big glass season is starting off with a bang – the glass recently found itself atop the tallest peak in the Italian Alps, Monte Blanc! Check out this photo and our entire Live Big glass photo gallery here.
