You might find it curious that I don’t subscribe to the Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, Investors Business Daily or any financial magazines.

But I do consume a lot of news and information on a daily basis from a variety of sources.

One of my challenges with this weekly blog post is deciding which article I want to share with you. And I certainly don’t want to bombard you with half a dozen articles each week. A big part of my mission is to help simplify people’s lives – not add to the noise.

This week, I was prepared to share this article and my thoughts about it. Go ahead and check it out. I think you’ll find it interesting. It’s about being busy and spending time on the most productive activities vs just “being busy.”

However, I just read an article from a friend and colleague based in Raleigh, NC. His name is Sam Bass and he runs a firm called Beacon Wealthcare. We share very similar philosophies regarding investing and wealth management, and it’s no coincidence that we each work under the banner of “Wealthcare.”

In my opinion, Sam’s article is timely and a must read. It’s about Treasury Bonds which Sam and I both use for the fixed income portion of our clients’ portfolios. I can’t speak for Sam, but 7-10 Year Treasuries represent the fixed income component in my personal portfolio as well.

If you haven’t already, read the article, and if you have any questions about how this applies to your personal portfolio or wealth management plan, I’m available and happy to discuss it with you.
