    2017 Top 5 List includes Advice for Small Business Owners, Millennials, Keeping Resolutions and Making an Impact

    Best of the Year and Top Ten lists are everywhere this time of year. Which prompted us to look back and see which blog posts and podcasts were the most popular in 2017. Turns out our Top 5 List covers everything from New Year’s resolutions to Secret Santas, with advice for small business owners, millennials, and solopreneurs also doing well.

    Whether you missed one of these the first time or would like to revisit a topic, we hope you enjoy our Best of 2017 list, presented here in chronological order. And, as always, thanks for reading.

    Make Your New Year’s Resolutions Permanent

    Make Your New Year’s Resolutions Permanent

    Our first blog of 2017 was also one of our most popular. And the information remains relevant as we look ahead to 2018. In this post, David points out that to make permanent changes in your life requires identifying the underlying emotional connection between where you are today and where you want to be.  Spending less, working out, and eating better are all good things to do, but to really push yourself to the next level, means asking yourself WHY you want to achieve this goal. As he says, “Don’t just make a resolution because it’s January. Make a resolution that resonates with who you are and who you want to be.”

    Millennial Wealth Made Simple with David Ragland

    This popular IRC WealthCast begins by pointing out that 41% of millennials aren’t saving for retirement and 42% of millennials have less than $50,000 in their employer-sponsored plans. David then goes on to discuss why having cash is critical to success, the role emotions play in building wealth, and the impact an employee match can have on a retirement account. While focused on millennials, many of these recommendations apply to other demographics with similar financial challenges.

    Making a Lasting Impact

    Making a Lasting Impact – Gifts from a Convenience Store

    Rounding out our Top 5 list is this blog that just ran last month, but its message remains timely, especially this week. David share how his experience of impulsively buying candy for a little boy has made a lasting impact on him.  As he writes, “In this season of giving, when you’re making your list and checking it twice, think about what you can really do for your friends, family, and possibly, a stranger. What would be meaningful? How can someone else benefit from your gifts?”
