Sometimes you just need to get out of your own way in order to keep moving forward. There are four common mindsets that hold investors back and we’ll discuss each of them. Plus, technology has opened up so many avenues for information, but sifting through the filler to find the fuel can be a challenge. We’ll give you some tips to help you stay more informed.

Often we speak with people that have unintentionally slowed down retirement planning just by having the wrong approach to investing. They don’t realize it but certain mindsets can hamper your growth.

In this episode of the No Payne, No Gain podcast, Ryan and Bob will identify the four mindsets that can negatively affect your planning. They’ll also explain what you can do to change your perspective and keep moving forward.

The other issue many people come across in today’s world is misinformation. Between the opinion shows, the vast amount of websites, and social media, we’re often met with conflicting points of view and that makes it extremely difficult to stay accurately informed. Ryan and Bob spend some time discussing that topic and share their own perspectives on how to sift through all the noise.

We’ve laid out the show in the rundown below to make it easier for you to skip to the topics you care about most or to go back and listen to something again.
