Weekend Reading – Record dividend income, pot stocks and ETFs, $150,000 fines 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.
This was my article from the past week:
In the coming weeks, I will be participating in a number of podcasts. Thanks to those bloggers and various media channels for reaching out to me – to get my take on various personal finance topics including how we’re realizing our financial goals as well. I will of course link to any podcast material on this site so you can hear what I have to stay. Stay tuned!
Enjoy this Weekend Reading edition and see you around the site!
