Publisher Notes For 8/22/23


Greetings from Digital Wealth News™

Friends, learn about “un-magical things” this week in our Top 5 VC column, check out our busy news week in Advisor Tech Talk (even in the dead of summer) and brush up on the New Normal vs. the Old Normal vs the New Old Normal (follow that?!) in financial markets.

As an aside, we just returned from a trip to Oahu last week.  The Maui fires weigh heavily on that spectacular state’s residents, but in Hawaii, there’s always hope, as evidenced by this double rainbow we saw there on our first day.  Our heartfelt prayers go out to those affected by this tragedy, but we have great hope that Lahaina & Maui (Lemuria) will, in due time, emerge in a spectacular new way and lead a powerful path forward for our future.

Finally, on a lighter note, our wonderful weekly column The Taylor Report (TTR) – had in its headline last week an “OOO” (out of office) message with a link to prior posts, and had the highest pageview/click rate of any TTR columns in months!!  No original content or thought leadership whatsoever.  So, the moral of the story is…………..just because you have decades of media experience, you still learn new tricks (like doing nothing sometimes wins the day) and you might as well just go on vacation every now and then!! 

And now…….READ UP!! | Cindy Taylor, Publisher
