It was a good week for My Own Advisor. Earlier this week, I learned one of my U.S. stocks increased their dividend, again, by almost 4%. On Tuesday, Dividend Stock Analysis mentioned yours truly as their investment blogger of the month. On Wednesday, Million Dollar Journey posted one of my articles: Not Retired Yet? Ignore the 4% Withdrawal Rule. On Thursday, I learned our most recent lump sum mortgage payment has us finishing off the mortgage 9 years from now, to this very week. It would be nice to have no mortgage, but knowing when the finish line is gives me some inspiration to keep the pedal down on our lump sum payments. What about you? Anything motivate you this past week?
Congratulations to Mel who correctly answered my skill-testing question and was the randomly selected winner for the FREE book giveaway – Cash Cows, Pigs and Jackpots by David Trahair. Stay tuned for more giveaways, as a thank you for reading and sharing the articles from My Own Advisor.
Lastly, I hope my readers to the South are enjoying their Thanksgiving. Enjoy the feasts, the football and the fun that comes with shopping for holiday deals.
