Weekend Reading – Kids these days, ETFs, tax-deadlines, the next market crash and more #moneystuff
Welcome to my latest Weekend Reading edition – where I share some of my favourite articles from the week that was across the personal finance and investing blogosphere.
These were my posts from this past week – during a very challenging work week:
It’s been a long week…many, many long weeks in fact during some trying times at work*. I need to decompress so I’m quite thankful it’s Masters time and the weekend!
*Assuming I can hold onto my current job, my wife and I anticipate we might be able to start part-time work at age 50 (just over 5 years from now) but that’s a big assumption. I go through cycles with work (should I change jobs??) from time to time. Some weeks, some months my work is both enjoyable and rewarding. Other times I want to jump out of a window. OK, I won’t do that…but you get the idea. I will continue to press on because I believe in the work and we have some great opportunities ahead with the changes I am supporting….but…it doesn’t make change easy sometimes…
How do you deal with rough days or weeks at work? Let me know. No doubt you have some guidance to offer me and you’ve been there too.
Again, it’s the weekend so get out with family and friends and enjoy it. I certainly will.
Interesting article here about online and video-based learning about Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) for financial professionals. I just hope completing a video does make people think they are an expert.
Million Dollar Journey shared some income tax filing tips.
Big Cajun Man suggests you avoid becoming a serial refinancer.
