Using guerilla marketing for my blog, I achieved 1,000 Twitter Followers ...

I love dividends and I cannot lie. They give you the best of both worlds: playing the stock market whilst also receiving a passive income stream. In many parts of the world, those dividends that you receive also get treated kindly by the taxman, which increases their effective return dramatically. In the U.S. and Canada you pay roughly half as much Federal tax on dividend income as you would regular income. But ...

I officially launched the blog on July 27th and posted the first couple of posts. For the sake of argument, I’m going to pretend that the blog wasn’t active for the last four days of July and just include that in the August update. So, what went well and what didn’t go well in the first month of operation? Blog Stats Thankfully my traffic has grown since inception. I ended up with 2,315 page ...

Side gigs and hustles are awesome. Whether it’s to save for a dream vacation or retire early, they can really help you achieve your financial goals. But there’s an area of frugality that’s very powerful: trimming recurring expenses. Frugal living is gift that keeps on giving, month after month after month.

So which cash back credit cards are best? Here we have some good US and Canadian cards. This post isn’t sponsored, there ...
