Random Gleanings is the video blog of two friends and founding partners of  PP&W talking “shop” on market trends, economic influences, financial planning ideas and recent news that pertains to moving your household or business ahead financially. 

Use RG to catch up on the latest news and trends we believe are important, shared by the decision makers in their own words on a regular basis.


Taking from reputable sources from around the web, Chartisphere offers the written thoughts and opinions of Chris & Jesse.  The guys make a case for their current (& loosely held) market convictions based around helpful charts that illustrate either historical relevance or current trends that should not be ignored.

                                                                                                                       Use the Chartisphere to challenge or confirm your "gut feeling" on markets, or for a quick check on the latest thoughts of two guys who are paying attention.

Have a question you’d like to see discussed by Chris and Jesse?  

Send an email to info@proplanwealth.com titled “Random Gleanings” and we’ll get you an answer either by email or in one of our future episodes.
