2015 Financial Goals – April Update

Over the last couple of years I’ve posted our financial goals on My Own Advisor.  I do this because: I believe all goals should be clear and transparent, I believe all goals should be realistic, I believe all goals should be measured, and I believe all goals should be documented. In my day job and industry, if it wasn’t documented it didn’t happen.  Following these rules above provide us with some hope we’ll hit our financial goals in 2015.

Crazy things people say about money

I’m not one to judge but every so often I’ll hear a comment about money that just makes me shake my head. I’m not even talking about people being misinformed; some of these statements I’ve heard are straight out crazy. “I want a risk free investment that returns 7%+” I get it, interest rates are low and you want a higher return on your savings, but I’m sorry no such investment exists.
