Weekend Reading – Frugal NFL players, robos managing money and building wealth in Canada
Welcome to my latest Weekend Reading edition, the first one of November as the end of 2017 draws closer…
Earlier this week I got a chance to chat with Navid Boostani, CEO of ModernAdvisor – he demystified a number of things when it comes to using a robo-advisor to grow your portfolio. A reminder you can get $50,000 managed FREE for one year with this firm. To take advantage of this offer simply open your account with ModernAdvisor using my link.
A few days ago I also shared our latest dividend income update. This month, we passed another milestone – so now it’s on to the next one! It has certainly been a slow and steady journey to date but the way I see it that’s probably a good recipe for success.
Enjoy the rest of these articles and see you here next week – when I intend to post a review of Doug Hoyes’ well-written book Straight Talk on Your Money.
Interesting to read about Tim Stobbs, a personal finance blogger who I met many years ago, who has exceeded his investing objectives and has since quit his job. I do wonder as busy as he was when he might work again though. Well done Tim reaching your goal.
Thanks to Build Wealth Canada and the host Kornel Szerjber for having me on his podcast. We talked about my investment journey to date and I answered these following questions and many more!
- Why did I decide to be a hybrid investor?
- What is my process for selecting stocks?
- When do I believe is the right time to buy stocks?
- And more and more…
Big Cajun Man clarified the RDSP.
CreditCardGenius listed some popular credit card insurance coverage.
Pretty cool article about this ex-NFL player that still drives a 20-year-old Nissan Maxima his brother passed down to him in high school (even though he made millions playing football for a living).
A reminder about some deals for you – for daily banking and investing!
Don’t forget about my Deals page where you can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars over years with better saving and investing solutions. It’s your money – get more out of it!
Kerry Taylor warned about extended warranties. Where possible, we try and self-insure. We also use a credit card that provides some extra warranty protection. In our terms and conditions “warranty coverage automatically doubles the original manufacturer’s warranty for up to two years.” Pretty good.
From a reader:
I was wondering if you’ve thought of doing a blog about your plans to delay taking your pension and using up some of your RRSP’s during that time? Thanks!
(I’ll get working on some content this fall/winter). Readers, what are your thoughts on that?
All the best,
