Maria Schneider wants to take physical therapy out of the clinic and into the home with the help of a small device. But is her technology the answer patients and doctors have been waiting for?
JOHANNESBURG — Here's a fascinating discussion with Nick Binedell, founder and former dean of GIBS, Africa's top business school. Binedell has productively applied the time freed up by his recent retirement. He is one of many unsung heroes who worked tirelessly behind the scenes as South African civil society fought back against the state capture which set the stage for industrial-scale corruption. I visited with him at GIBS this morning for his insights after Jacob Zuma finally threw in the towel last night. What transpired is a riveting must-listen for anyone wanting to make sense of SA's historic developments in the past week. Especially interesting are Binedell's views on what comes next for the young democracy. Hope Springs. - Alec Hogg
biggerpockets.com/moneyshow07 Mr. and Mrs. Waffles on Wednesday (WoW) were doing everything wrong. They ran up ridiculous tabs at a local restaurant/bar just "hanging out," while getting abysmal returns from their financial planner—and paying 1% for this terrible advice. Dissatisfaction with 5% returns while the market saw 25% returns spurred a Google search, which landed them on a website that told them exactly how to invest in the stock market (hint: index funds). This site also introduced them to the concept of early retirement. Mr. WoW convinced Mrs. WoW to hop on the FI train with the lure of unlimited travel which led to a financial about-face and expense tracking, which led to the realization that they spent far too much money on things that didn’t matter. Hear how Mrs. WoW’s self employment gave their FI journey a jumpstart through tax hacks like write-offs and business expenses. This is an awesome episode!

So many people wait and wait and wait…to make a change…to get their sh*t together…to take advantage of an opportunity. They don't act with urgency until it's too late...and they suffer the consequences. But successful people are different. They live every day with urgency...even when they are way ahead! In this episode, I talk about how people suffer from "selective urgency," how to identify it, how to avoid it, and what to do in place of it...so that you can cultivate the habits high earners possess.
