Hello all! Our Saturday morning shout-outs highlight a post/article/book/other that I’ve come across lately that deserves exactly that: a ‘shout-out.’ The goal here is to hopefully introduce my readers to other authors or bloggers that have had an impact on me, my writing, and my life.

This week’s shout-out is:

The small, big wins published at Tortise Happy. This post struck me as soon as I started reading it. So often, many of us are completely focused on the long-term horizon that we lose sight of the here and now. “How I am going to pay off 6-figures of debt!” or “I can’t wait for Financial Independence!!” or “I’ll have a 6-pack this time next year!” You’ve seen the similar headlines and I’m guilty of writing at least a few of them, but this post did a phenomenal job of resetting my mental focus.


The author literally made a pie – then wrote a post about it. You might be thinking, “What the heck man? These are supposed to be awesome articles you’re Shouting-out??” And you wouldn’t be wrong at all for thinking that but then I’d hope that you dove further into the why of why she wrote this article. She was, for some crazy reason, afraid of making pastries, and after 10-years of avoidance – she made it happen. This article is short and to the point and re-calibrates the mind to tell yourself “Good Job!” for the day-to-day wins. Don’t get lost in the huge goals 100% of the time. Sometimes you should just bake a pie instead. But before you do that, check her article first!



Thanks for reading!
