A Good Night's Sleep; This Week's Reading Pile

Written by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

My Mom always said something that has stuck with me.

Sometimes, you just have a bad day. Usually, a good night’s sleep rights the ship.

Amen! It is always a good reminder that you will trip and stumble. But keep moving, and the sun will come back out.

I’m not who said this first, but it is true. The older I get, the smarter my parents become!

Now, on to this week’s reading pile.

  • If it’s under $5, it’s free. (WSJ) If you already worry about financial literacy, you probably won’t want to read this.)
  • U.S. hotel industry sells near-peak number of rooms in September. (CoStar)
  • Tim Cook’s daily routine. (Entrepreneur) Of interest – he reads hundreds of customer emails each day.
  • No thank you. (Godin)
  • Unemployment claims remain historically low. (Calculated Risk)
  • Price is only relevant in the absence of value. (Shep Hyken)
