The stories are also enticing. If you listen to everybody, a side hustle can bring you in hundreds of […] The post What are the benefits of starting a side hustle? appeared first on The ...

Shopping for an engagement ring feels a bit surreal. It is one thing to think about marrying your partner and thinking how lucky you are. It is a very different story to ask for permission from his or her parents and take concrete steps to prepare the perfect proposal. I vividly remember my proposal to […] The post How much should you spend on the perfect engagement ring? ($50,000 is ok) ...

Last weekend was my law school reunion weekend in Washington, DC. It’s incredible to see how much people have achieved in five years. It is also crazy to see how very little has changed. Some left the legal profession and other stayed, relationships strengthened or fell apart, and overall people look quite good.   We […] The post Student loans are a scary ticking time bomb appeared first on The English ...

A few months ago, I moved out of my old apartment. Moving is stressful for everyone. Packing, finding a new place, moving boxes, unpacking, sorting and decorating are all necessary steps. Retrieving your deposit is, however, one of the most important steps. Unfortunately, what should be a simple task too often turns out to be […] ...

For the first time in months, US equities almost went into full correction mode. While valuations are still very high, many portfolios will have felt the pain. That’s because most portfolios will follow a common asset allocation strategy split between equities and bonds. Equities are viewed as the riskier assets but also the more rewarding […] ...

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) recently released a few interesting figures on the financial situations of 18- to 29-year-olds in the UK. I knew it wouldn’t be pretty. After all, I also was once 26 in London. Yet, I was quite shocked at what I read. Financial stability is far from a given for […] ...

There is a lot of advice on the importance of saving. Saving is critical because it allows you to invest. However, not all savings will go towards investments. Sometimes, you need savings to sit in a cash account to build a deposit or set up an Emergency Fund. Little advice is however given on how […] ...

For some time, I resisted publishing a blog post on whether one should have an Emergency Fund (or Emergency Savings). First, many blog posts had already touched on that topic.
