The year 2017 is now over half way completed. So it is time for another net worth checkup. If you are not familiar with net worth, the idea is to calculate how much your possessions are worth if you had to consolidate everything at current value right now. To calculate it, you take everything you own, work out how much it is worth, and add it up. You then subtract ...

Money Tips 41 to 50 Explained (#MoneyTips) Time for my fifth set of 10 money tips to gain an explanation, after all, it has been a little while. I have posted my money tips to Twitter (using the hash tag #MoneyTips) and found that some of them were very hard to keep within that magic but annoying 140 character limit. So far, I have managed it, however sometimes a little of the ...

Federal Australian Budget 2017-2018 So, everyone is focusing on the headlines for the 2017-2018 Australian budget just delivered. I get that, people like to read headlines that impact them. Therefore people are writing about things that will have the largest impact on people. Rather than just duplicating the Medicare, First home buyers, Uni students, and Drug tests, I wanted to have a look at a couple of the items that ...

Earlier this month I had the pleasure of renewing my home and contents insurance. I know most people won’t consider it a pleasure to pay for something you hope you will never need, but I did. There are two main reasons for this, firstly insurance is important, secondly because I got a discount. Let me tell you a little about two events that gave me a smile. Why Insurance? Insurance is ...

It has been over a month since my last post. March was the first month I have missed since I bought the domain. However, I have learnt a lot in the month of March. Sorry for not posting, however hospital trumps blogging in my priority list. I will get to the learnings, but first, a little background. Background I have always been the sort of person who likes to find the ...

So far I have not posted anything specifically looking at one company/share or another. However today something happened to Bendigo Bank that peaked my interest. It also highlight one of the things I look for when investing for dividends. Of course this is only ONE thing I look for, there are many others. I hope it goes without saying that you should make sure you consider more than just the ...

I can’t believe that January is over and I haven’t yet written down my 2017 new year goals. That means I am already a twelfth of the way towards failing! Time to fix that. Number zero of my new year goals: write down new year goals for 2017. Goal complete! Go me. But seriously let’s get into my new year goals for 2017, and see if I can turn them ...

The year 2017 has started, which means it is time for the six monthly check of how the net worth balance book is going. Having just finished looking at how my 2016 goals went, the details are hot off the press. So to see what the last six months have provided, read on. Given the ASX has moved from around 5310 to 5720 over the six months, it would be ...

With 2016 over it is time to have a look back at the new year goals I set at the start of the year. I was well on the way at the half way point, so lets see how many were reached at year end. Score: a slightly generous 6 out of 9 (or 67%) for my 2016 new year goals. 1) Increase Net Worth By $100k Goal: Success. The last half ...

A little while ago Len (from Financial Farmers – go check them out) commented on my post How We Made Our First Million Accidentally. He asked about financial freedom, not having to work, and early retirement. In my reply I talked about maintaining principal, inflation and a bunch of variables. We both had similar goals (although 40 seems a little to soon for me), but had very different capital requirements ($3+ million vs ...
