As we embark on a new year, I'm looking to make a few changes in some of the content that is posted on the website. At the same time, I'm looking to push the envelope on a few initiatives for this year.
Investor Consensus Blog
For this year I decided to stop posting to my Consensus Watch Blog. It's a bit bittersweet as it was the first blog I created and I tried to keep it fresh with postings of acts of positive and negative consensus with a goal of capturing some kind of snapshot of the overall market psychology which I strongly believe is a core component in framing your investment decisions. The reality is keeping the blog fresh as well as my longer form investing articles as well posting videos is just too much to handle. Something had to give. In its stead, I plan to post periodically a compilation of consensus observations in the Articles section.
New for 2016: The Double-T
For 2016, I'm looking to spend more my time applying what I call the Double-T: Talkin' and Teachin'
For 2016, I'm embarking on using my voice a bit more than my writing on the website. That's right you'll be hearing me talk more. Not talking as in Podcast talking. I'm planning to go hard at leveraging the live streaming tools out there such as Periscope. As a result, I've just begun posting small 5-10 minute Periscope sessions called Stock Talk where I babel about stock market issues of the day and general investing issues that I myself and others are facing. I'm planning to do a couple of sessions a week, mostly during the weekdays. With Periscope the sessions lasting online only 24 hours, I will be archiving them and posting past episodes on my YouTube channel (Sage Investors) and linking them on the website in the Video page. They're a bit rough around the edges but hopefully they'll get more polished as time goes on. If you have questions or topics you would like me to discuss, send me an email or DM me on Twitter (@sageinvestors). I'm doing it so people can hear my voice and and hopefully shake some fears about investing.
As an investment coach I already spend a good chunk of my time working with individuals and teaching not only the mechanics of investing but also the emotional and the behavioural side which is just as critical. The big thing is I hope to leverage a lot more technology in the modules I've developed over the years. It's still a work in progress but I hope to ramp up pretty hard in 2016 so stay tuned!
So looking forward to playing around with some tools and shouting out my observations on all things investing.
