Welcome to some Long Weekend Reading friends. Leading up to the weekend there were a number of things I needed to do on the work front and home front this week, so I didn’t get to read as many financial articles as I would have liked. I did manage to post an update to our 2015 financial goals whereby I acknowledged we will fail in two areas this year. It’s disappointing. I am however starting to look forward to 2016 where it should be a better year. Have you ever bombed some of your financial goals? If so, how did you feel?
Enjoy these articles and see you next week, when I intend to profile a prolific saver who is now living it up in his 50s.
CBC profiled this couple who travel the world but clean toilets and shovel cow $hit to do so.
Frugal Trader shared his biggest investment mistake over at 5i Research. Somehow I don’t think he was alone with this big bet. I’m pretty sure I lost more money that FT with this mistake…
Rob Carrick provided a list of financial terms to drop.
Young & Thrifty wrote about the parallels of personal finance and fitness.
Retire Happy wrote about protecting your retirement income from the stock market. If you need to protect yourself from the stock market, you likely have too much stake in the stock market. You likely need some sort of Cash Wedge.
Have a great weekend!
