Filtering Out The Noise

Filtering Out The Noise

One of the biggest challenges for individual investors is filtering out all the noise out there and determining what information if of real value. I deal with this every day. I spend a great deal of time reading every day. At least 95% of it is useless to me in trying to make money for my clients.

Carl Richards is an financial planner who has become well-known for his napkin drawings that visually represent financial ideas. I love his stuff and highly recommend it. He does a great job of filtering the junk and sharing useful ideas… though I still think the dot on that napkin is too big.

You can read his NY Times blog here and follow him on Twitter @behaviorgap.
