Short Passage of The Week
The Art of Thriving
When we disconnect to reconnect as leaders and positive-difference makers, life becomes art, and the beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
The art of using “no” as a complete sentence.
The art of rediscovering yourself over, and over, and over again.
The art of clearing your mind so that you can listen to your heart.
The art of balancing empathy for others with empathy for yourself.
The art of knowing when to speak, when to listen, and when to leave.
The art of knowing when to pivot, when to pause, and when to persist.
Passage by Mitchell C. Clark, Keep It 100
Came across a great interview by Adam Breneman and current Penn State QB Sean Clifford.
Really enjoyed the segment discussing Clifford’s new business venture and NIL developments.
That part starts at the 25:58 timestamp.

Who has YOUR best interest at heart?
Did you know there is a standard in the financial world called 'Fiduciary' that requires an advisor to act in a manner that is reasonably believed to be in the best interest of the client.
Most would question why this is NOT the case for all financial advisors or anyone dealing with a subject like money.
Anytime there is a chance the advisor can profit on a sale, they can NOT be acting as your Fiduciary because they have a conflict of interest.
As you look at advisors, the first question should be 'Why are you not a fiduciary?'
“There might not be 1000 ways to accomplish something, but there is almost always more than one way. Know what you want, and be flexible on how to get there.” - James Clear
Serena Williams really is the 🐐
