The holiday season hasn’t stopped the fintech world from turning – and there’s some big industry news from the past week you won’t want to miss.
This week’s mixtape includes:
A podcast from Davis Janowski
A great tool from Google
Seeds, the latest fintech startup
Talking openly about mental health and depression isn’t an easy conversation for most people, but it is a necessary conversation to have in public.
In this episode of the Healthy Advisor podcast, host Diana Britton talks with Davis Janowski, the tech editor of WealthManagement.com, about his battle with depression and how kayaking has helped him through it.
It’s an intensely personal conversation between two highly public professionals in the industry and a good listen for anyone – especially those who might feel alone in their own struggle, or anyone who wants to learn how to talk more openly with friends going through similar circumstances.
Health is Wealth
Google rolled out yet another free (and super useful) tool for anyone who creates content. The QuestionHub collects unanswered questions so you can find out where there are content gaps in the internet. If you find one that fits within your specialty, you could write an answer and then get some pretty sweet SEO juice by having one of the few answers out there.
But get in there quick if you’re gonna check it out! Google giveth and Google taketh. Shortly after opening up the Question Hub to a larger audience, Google announced that they will be shutting it down in early January, with many theorizing that they’ll soon move those insights over to Google Search Console.
Ask Me Anything
There’s a new “for advisors, by advisors” fintech startup on the horizon. This one is Seeds Investor, a client assessment and personalized investing platform led by CEO Zach Conway of Conway Wealth.
The company just closed a funding round that raised $2.7 million and included some notable names in the industry, including Ryan Shanks of FA Match and the Ritholtz Wealth crew.
Watch This Seed Grow
ChatGPT burst onto the scene this week as the latest AI writing tool that produces better content than any previous content creation bot. It’s pretty incredible, and well worth checking out (especially since it’s free – at least for now). While any copy it kicks out still needs revising and editing, it’s pretty amazing what it can do with a simple prompt. It’s a great tool to help you get over writing block.

Welp, I’m Now Obsolete
We spend a lot of time talking about the benefits of recycling content around here, so you know we loved this piece from the founder of Influence & Co. that lays out the steps with an example of how they have taken a single tool and turned it into press coverage, blogs, videos and more. Not only that, they lay out how to identify the metrics that can help you track your results. We love a good bit of practical content marketing advice, and this article does not fail.
Reduce, Reuse, But Mostly Recycle
