Welcome to my latest Weekend Reading edition, where I share some of my favourite reads from the week that was.
Earlier this week I posted my interview with Ken Kivenko, who is an investor advocate for Canadians at large and I recapped my conversation with a co-worker who felt they didn’t need to save for their vacation, let alone retirement, because they believe their pension will take care of them. Roll the dice – I hope they are right.
Enjoy your weekend and take care – thanks for being a fan and helping this site hit 50,000 visits per month.
