Over the last year, I’ve been fortunate to get acquainted with many personal finance and investing bloggers. Their content impresses me, surprises me and motivates me at the same time. It’s pretty cool that perfect strangers can connect across provinces, countries and oceans, sharing a mutual passion and develop a friendship over that passion. What did we do before the internet? This internet thing is kinda neat. I hope they keep it around for awhile.
This week’s roundup includes a rant from the President of Steadyhand, tips for reviewing your portfolio and bloggers who are saving crazy amounts of income for retirement and ready to pay off their mortgages. Nice stuff folks. I hope to be mortgage free in another 12 years 🙂
Next week, I should get around to posting my review of Dan Bortolotti’s Guide to the Perfect Portfolio. For new or experienced investors, this was a great read and I’ll tell you why next week.
Until then, have a safe, happy and healthy weekend!
Tom Bradley (President of Steadyhand) is not thrilled when it comes to how RRSP transfers are handled by some institutions.
TFB told us how he was going to take control of his finances!
Dividend Growth Investor shared his dividend retirement plan. I loved this part: “Retirement to me is the point where my dividend income exceeds my expenses, which means that I no longer have to work for money.” Me too. When my dividend income generated by my portfolio consistently exceeds my living expenses – I’m most definitely calling it quits. Hopefully, hopefully, that’s about 15 years away.
Million Dollar Journey answered a reader’s question: why doesn’t he use a dividend ETF for his leveraged portfolio? I can certainly identify with MDJ’s answers, mainly this one – I’d like to avoid 0.55% or higher management expense fees where and when I can.
