Monthly Newsletter: October 2022

This week I’m excited to launch my Wealth Planning Toolkit for Google Sheets. It’s a spreadsheet hosted on Google Sheets that includes a monthly net worth tracker, asset rebalancing calculator, and heavily customizable FIRE and Coast FIRE calculators.

For a limited time, I’m going to offer this to my newsletter subscribers for FREE by using the discount code *REDACTED* in the checkout.

Thanks again for subscribing, and I hope that this toolkit helps you on your journey to financial freedom!

Market Update

As of October 31, 2022 close-of-business.

🐂 Getting long term bullish - some bullish thoughts about the current pain in the markets.

  • “The more bearish things feel in the short run the more bullish I should be over the long run”
  • “Every single bear market in the history of U.S. stocks has resolved to new all-time highs eventually.”

📖 The Crypto Story - last week, Bloomberg Businessweek devoted an entire issue, cover-to-cover, to this 40,000 word essay by popular columnist Matt Levine.

  • Whether you’re a crypto skeptic or bitcoin maximalist, it's hard to overlook the fact that Bloomberg devoted an entire issue to any topic for only the second time in the magazine’s 93 year history.
  • If you have a few hours, I really recommend reading it. Alternatively, you can listen to this Vox Media podcast interview with Matt Levine about why he wrote the cover-to-cover piece.
  • "In the past 14 years, crypto has built a whole financial system from scratch...”
  • "Whatever is left in crypto is not just speculation and get-rich-quick schemes. We can think about what crypto means—divorced, a little bit, from the lines going up."
