Reading Time: 8 minutesIn this Warren Buffett series, I have pulled out a few sections from the 50 years of Berkshire Hathaway Letters to Shareholders that I recently finished reading.

Reading Time: 5 minutesBefore I get into what I have been doing wrong with my own 401K, let me tell you what I have done right. The one thing I have consistently done is contributed to my 401K and in most years maxed it out.

Reading Time: 11 minutesIt’s really hard to believe that it has been 3 years since I committed myself to this blog. I started out writing these reflective posts at every 6-month milestone, but it has now morphed into a yearly update since my last update was the blogs 2 year anniversary. My long-time readers know by know that I tend to view most things through a numerical lens. I honestly can’t help ...
