Weekend Reading – Success, ETFs, Forbes, leverage, savings boost and more

Welcome to another Weekend Reading edition, where you can find some of the best personal finance and investing articles from the week that was.  This week it was all about updates on this site – where we’re at with some of our 2015 financial goals and how a hybrid approach of owning many dividend paying stocks and a few low-cost indexed products are helping us reach financial freedom.

    1. I find it hard to know if things are getting better, or worse, myself. I figure I just need to keep my head down and keeping work and hopefully things will work out!? Enjoy your weekend!
