News From the Control Tower - 1/24/2023

News from the Control Tower: Our weekly curated list of news stories affecting you and your finances.

Now’s the time of year when the excitement of the New Year fades, and many lose track of their resolutions.  (Unless you’re celebrating Asian New Year, then we wish you a happy new year!) I’m already seeing fewer people at the gym. This week’s stories reflect some of that feeling of having to “muddle through." I loved the success stories of the dog walkers who had to physically muddle through – day after day they walked those dogs and are now through to the other side with successful businesses to show for it.

Finally, a piece on an apple hunter inspired to preserve the apple varieties of historic orchards. If you’re looking for some inspiration – nature is always a great place to start.
