Thinking Forward - The Blessed Madness of Seth Godin

Post written by Bryan A. Sarff, CFP®, RFC | President and Personal Wealth Manager

At some point in the early 2000’s, I began reading and following Seth’s work through his blog that you can follow here: www.sethgodin.com. Seth is a marketing icon. He’s inspired me through his Ted Talks and numerous books. My favorite being Permission Marketing. But mostly I’ve enjoyed his blog. He writes daily, to the point, and speaks his mind. If you are a business owner or entrepreneur, you’ll be doing yourself a huge favor to read his work. He’s helped me through good times and bad. Through business failures, startups, and successes. Next to Dr. Lisa Scheer, no one has had more impact on my business thinking than Seth Godin.

Recently, I’ve been even more inspired by Seth. I received his new book “What Does it Sound Like When You Change Your Mind?”. This is not your ordinary book. For starters, it weighs 17lbs and is in an 11 x 17 format. It’s 740 pages long. And serves as a compilation of his writings and speeches and musings for the last 5 years. It will be a labor of love to page through and enjoy this book. The book is packed with new and old ideas. Snipets of insight, laid out with a picturesque format that can only be seen to be appreciated. (My copy is in my office. If you ever want to come by and thumb through it, just ask. I’ll be happy to show it off!) Seth, Thank You for all you do for entrepreneurs.

Second Opinion

In no-load funds, you don’t pay to get bad advice. Or good advice.

Maybe, like a lot of people over the last few years, you invested in no-load mutual funds or stocks or exchange traded funds. You didn't feel you needed any professional advice… and so you didn't pay for it.

These days, you may be having second thoughts. Uncertain, unsettled markets have a way of generating lots of second thoughts. We at True Private Wealth Management are professional investment advisors. And, we would like to make you an interesting offer. From 8:00 a.m to 9:00 a.m. every morning, we offer a cup of coffee, and a second opinion.

If you have an investment that really concerns you—and can't, or just don't want to, seek advice from the folks you bought the investment from—come in and see us.

If we can offer an intelligent opinion, we will. If not, we’ll tell you that, too. If we think you made a good investment, we’ll tell you so, and send you on your way. If we think you'd be better advised to own something else, we’ll tell you why.

No cost. No obligation. And the coffee’s on us! Call today for more information. (913) 653-8783.

How Inflation Affects Fixed Investments

Christmas Cookies

  • 1 box devil's food cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 C. oil
  • 30-40 Candy Cane Hershey Kisses
  • Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cookies sheets with parchment paper. Combine cake mix, eggs, and oil until smooth. Scoop small dough balls a little smaller than a Tablespoon onto cookies sheets and bake for 5-7 minutes. (Cake mix cookies will bake up tall and not spread too much so if you want a flatter cookie, pat the dough balls down a little before baking.)nLet cool for 2 minutes and then gently press an unwrapped Hershey Kiss into each cookie.
