Over the last two years, I have written almost 100 posts! In fact, this is Post #99. Over this time, I have accumulated several post ideas – most of which came to life and can be found here. Others have found a home on my running list of ideas but have never become their own post. They feel more like tips, resources, and ideas than full posts, so I’ve decided ...

Freakonomics Radio Freakonomics Radio recently released two new podcast episodes that I think are worth highlighting on my blog. Managing your money and knowing how to invest can be complicated. I try to alleviate some of that through this blog, and I think these two episodes also help explain some of these concepts in a digestible way. Each episode is about 45 minutes long. They’re worth the listen. The Stupidest Thing You ...

Earlier this year, I shared my pick for the best album of 2017 (so far). That album continues to be my favorite of the year, but I thought I would share other content that is making me happy in 2017. I love sharing recommendations with friends, as it often leads to great conversation and new things to learn. Disclaimer: Not all of this content came out in 2017, but I ...

This post talked about financial peer pressure and what to say when asked to spend more money on something than you want or can afford to do.

Today I got to write the check and stick it in the mail. It’s been such a good experience ...

On The Clock We often talk and think about how much money we make in terms of an annual salary. Of course, that salary has to fund our lives even while we’re not working. In fact, it has to fund the hours when we’re sleeping and not spending any money at all. Well, we’re not actively spending money. We’re still on the clock for our mortgage/rent, air conditioning, electricity, subscriptions, etc. So, ...
