Things change. Time moves on. What worked in one phase of our lives no longer serves us an another.

“You may have noticed that in the last couple of years I have been writing a lot less here. The main reason for that is all my professional dreams are coming true. I used to dream of working at a firm like the one I am now managing as CEO. Which is an amazing feeling. I forget how lucky I am. But getting us to this point has taken up more and more of my time with each passing year. And so the writing had to take a backseat.” – Josh Brown

You may have already heard by now that Josh Brown is sunsetting The Reformed Broker blog. The moniker and attitude that served him as an upstart blogger no longer fits him as the CEO of a fast growing, $4 billion AUM RIA. However letting go isn’t easy. From an interview with Ian Wenik at CityWire.

‘I think it’s probably something I should have done sooner,’ Brown said about the decision to shut down The Reformed Broker. ‘I’ve grown attached to the site, so even though I don’t feel like I’m the same person who started the site, it’s not the kind of thing that you just very lightly say: “Alright, I’m done with that.” It’s probably been some inertia that’s held me back from making it final.’ – Josh Brown

As one of the most successful financial bloggers Josh has had a big impact on the way people write about the markets.* It’s hard to imagine a time when the only people writing about financial markets worked for newspapers and magazines.

In short, legend.

Josh isn’t done writing. In fact, he will have more time to write now. To find out where his keyboard takes him next you can sign up here.

*Josh didn’t just write about markets. Some of his best posts tackled history, society and work.
