As you know by now, I’m a bit of a precious metal investor/collector. I list both “investor” and “collector” as I’m not really sure what I’d call myself. I buy a few coins here and there, but don’t have a large part of my net worth in metals. At this point I buy mostly for my own enjoyment as well as for gifts (coins make fun and unique gifts, especially for kids, ...

Here’s another email from a reader asking for some suggestions on a financial situation. Please read below and give him your thoughts… I’ve been thinking about purchasing a 3BR condo in my daughter’s college town and renting it for the long term. The college is tight for their on campus housing slots and actually have to resort to a lottery for housing each year since they mandate freshmen must live on campus the ...

Last time in this series I shared the events that led to an interesting work transition for me. This time we’ll wrap up the series by highlighting the last three jobs I had before I retired (two of which you know a lot about already.)

Though I’m retired, I still have LinkedIn as one of the tabs that comes up when I open my browser each morning. I usually look at a few articles as well as check notifications to see what’s happening with people I know — just to keep in the loop a bit. Just like on other social media platforms, people often post inspirational or thought-provoking comments. A few months ago I ran into one ...

But 9 times out of 10 it’s a tele-marketer or scammer of some sort. So why bother answering? It can’t lead to anything good, right? The IRS Calls Me I got a call ia couple months ago that ...

This site often seems like a brag-fest to me. Many of the posts are about how I did this well or did that well. Of course, I have had my successes and they are worth learning from. But as we’ve seen now and then, I’ve also made a lot of mistakes. Fortunately these have been limited in number and not that large. But they do happen and are just as worthwhile to learn from ...
