Welcome to a Long Weekend Reading edition here on My Own Advisor.
Earlier this week I wrote about the Mental Side of Debt, discussing how liberating it will be for my wife and I to be debt-free in the next 5-7 years.

I enjoyed Barry Choi’s straight-talk in this post: Crazy things people say about money.
It was a HUGE win for my Sens on Thursday night, I hope they can keep it going. Happy Easter to all readers and supporters of this site!

Music superstars Jay-Z, Jack White, Alicia Keys and many more are now running this new music streaming service. They said this about the new service:
“Our mission goes beyond commerce, it goes beyond technology. Our intent is to preserve music’s importance in our lives,” Keys said. “Music is the language of love, of laughter, of heartbreak, of mystery. It’s the world’s true, true, without question, universal language.” I don’t buy it; they just want their royalties. 🙂
