This monthly series is my attempt to curate the web for you. I probably consume more content than one person should, but I am kind of a knowledge junkie. I don’t just consume content for the sake of consumption. The goal is to always learn something, gain a new perspective, contribute to the conversation, and fuel the idea factory. Reading is exercise for the brain and just like the body, it needs plenty of it to stay healthy.

In any given month I try to read at least 3-5 books. I also have over 100 different blogs that I follow from my Feedly app. In addition to the books and the blogs, I also listen to about a dozen podcasts. And then there is always the unplanned material that I stumble across or that gets shared with me.

With that said here are the ones I thought were worth sharing. They only represent a small percentage of what I actually read, but if you have the time they are worth checking out.

Gen Y Finance Guy

Hey, I’m Dom - the man behind the cartoon. You’ll notice that I sign off as "Gen Y Finance Guy" on all my posts, due to the fact that I write this blog anonymously (at least for now). I like to think of myself as the Chief Freedom Officer here of my little corner of the internet. In the real world, I’m a 30-something C-Suite executive. I am trying to humanize finance by sharing my own journey to Financial Freedom. I believe in total honesty and transparency. That is why before I ever started blogging, I decided that I would share all of my own financial stats. I do this not to brag, but instead to inspire motivate, and also to hold myself accountable. My goal is to be a beacon of hope, motivation, and inspiration, for you, the reader, by living life by example and sharing it all here on the blog. My sincere hope is that you will be able to learn from me - both from my successes and my failures! Read More

  1. Dude, just read “I Want to Create Passive Income, But I Don’t Know Where to Start” — Parts I & II. Wow is she a good writer (following her now).

    I love her graph modeling the time-money relationship. Defiantly helps motivate since I’m in the early stages of entrepreneurship (lots of time, no money).

    Can’t wait for the later parts!

    Keep curating, I’ll keep reading them. Next on the list is Quick Sprout.

      Hey Kevin,

      Stoked that you’re finding value in the curated list. We get so inundated with so much content that it can become overwhelming.

      Glad I can hope point out a few gems.

      Cheers!

  2. Still have these content curations I see.. You’re good at them Dom, I’d pay a solid $2 – $3 a week for your suggestions / recommendations, not sure if others would however could this be a business idea? 😉

      Glad you are enjoying them Jef!

      Maybe could be a business idea…something to think about in the future when I have more time freed up. Spending a lot of energy on the career right now, will have plenty to share on the blog over the next 6 months, but too early to spill the beans just yet.

      Cheers!

    2. Awesome to hear that it’s all coming along nicely & I’ve gotta catch up yet, I’ll likely read them some time next year 😉 ha

      Agreed, everything you say yes to is something else you say no to right!

      Thanks
