Six New Year Resolutions for 2018

The last one might involve you.

Hoping we all do better with this year’s resolutions.

For the past few years I’ve been sharing my New Year resolutions publicly. I take these seriously and while the public sharing feels kind of pretentious, the practice makes me more accountable. So here we go:

My Resolutions for 2019:

  1. Eat less red meat and more fish (to date I eat fish only medicinally)
  2. Sweat everyday — even if it’s briefly (tried last year but failed big)
  3. Be present with my HS senior in his last 8 mos living under our roof
  4. Smoke more cigars (tried last year but need to do better!)
  5. Make a social impact
  6. Help at least 50 friends and new acquaintances invest better

The good news is that I can proverbially kill two birds on this list (#5 & 6) with the one stone. I am a partner with OpenPath Investments, a social impact real estate company. For 12 years we’ve been delivering market-beating returns for our investors –with less risk than the stock market — while at the same time providing real benefits for working-class families and the planet.

What are your 2019 goals and resolutions? If you’re interested in getting better financial returns, with less risk and with the added benefit of making a difference socially, you’ll appreciate this short video on how we do it.
