Grounded Investing

At Yeske Buie, we believe there is a science to investing. Unfortunately, much of what passes for investment activity has little connection to this science. To some degree, this comes from the natural human desire to “beat the system,” to gain some special advantage, to find the secret short-cut. But at the end of the day, we believe success in investing is more about discipline than it is about beating the system by picking hot stocks or timing the market. With this in mind, we share eight common investment habits to avoid to maintain a grounded and disciplined approach to investing.

“Let’s Talk About the Big Book”

A friend recently shared with us an article from The Washington Post titled “Let’s Talk about the Big Book” that details all of life’s important documents that should be kept in one central location for easy access in the case of a death or an emergency. The article reminds us of a piece we have shared in the past – Assembling Your Financial First Aid Kit – and we feel that it adds another layer of detail that is valuable to consider. We’ve listed some of the highlights of the article here on our website – we hope you find the suggestions helpful!

Financial Aid 101: Filing the FAFSA 

With high school graduations upon us, the reality of college expenses like room and board, tuition, and supplies may be sinking in. All of these costs make up a student’s total cost of attendance and can be paid for with federal financial aid which is awarded based on the completed FAFSA for each student. While some of the state deadlines for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year have passed, it’s not too late for those who may have originally thought it wouldn’t make a difference to file the FAFSA for federal aid. Read on for resources related to filing FAFSA and considerations for financial aid options.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson
