05-30-2023 Newsletter: Rethinking Advice: Beyond the Illusion of ‘Rich’ and ‘Prestige’


Are you tired of relying on advice from forums that glorify the pursuit of wealth and status?


Yes, I’m looking at you, future investment associate.



The online world is flooded with forums and communities that promote the notion that being rich and having prestige is the ultimate measure of achievement. While financial stability and recognition certainly have their merits, they don’t necessarily guarantee happiness or fulfillment.

In fact, research shows that chasing money and status can lead to increased stress, anxiety, depression, and dissatisfaction with life.
