Weekend Reading – Million dollar milestones, mortgage advice and more

Welcome to my latest Weekend Reading list.   Earlier this week I wrote about why dividend investing (along with indexing) is a strategy that works for me and some ideas on a better way to budget.

I hope to post an article next week about my perspectives on human capital and if I have time, a dividend income update for last month.

Enjoy your weekend and thanks for reading and supporting My Own Advisor.
