Click on to obtain Monetary Disasters
Yesterday was sort of a enjoyable day: Positive, it was a darkish, damp, dreary February morn after I confirmed up on the Brooklyn Bridge Marriot, however it was additionally the primary time I did a brand new presentation in entrance of a dwell viewers since earlier than the pandemic.
I do a quarterly replace for RWM shoppers that covers the economic system, the markets, and our portfolios each three months. It’s broad and is pushed largely by real-time occasions, together with the questions shoppers ask.
I’ve been doing these kinds of updates for many years and whereas it’s a strong 20 to 40 hours of prep work, it’s turn into second nature for me. Michael Batnick is a big a part of forming the arc of the narrative I need to talk about; Sean Russo does nice analysis and creates precisely the sort of charts I need to illustrate my factors.
However making a full 30-minute presentation from scratch takes for much longer – about 50-100 hours of labor, follow runs, changes, and many others. Shorter takes longer to prep, as it’s important to make the onerous calls as to what will get minimize. Of the 35 slides, 30 have been model new.
This was a enjoyable presentation to do – at about 5 minutes in, you simply exhale and loosen up. I actually had a good time presenting this and answering questions afterward.
I’ll publish the video when it goes dwell later this week.
Thanks, Joe and Debbie of the MoneyShow for inviting me!
