Finance Fridays


Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Today we’re going to talk about the constant battle of “Buy the Best” versus “Buy Cheap”. “Buy the Best” versus “Buy Cheap”? Yea. I think this is a constant battle that occurs in everyone’s mind whenever we’re at the store. There are conflicting ideals at work here: When you “Buy the Best” you are saying that buying the more expensive (possibly better) item that will provide better value long term […]

Hey everyone it’s Finance Fridays again, as promised, today I’m going go talk about Suze Orman and the $5 million retirement. Suze Orman and the $5 million retirement? Yea. If you’ve been following finance stuff, then you’ve probably heard of Suze Orman. She’s written a bunch of finance books and was previously a financial advisor for Merril Lynch.

Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Technically today’s topic of “Monetizing My Blog” isn’t exactly a Finance Fridays topic for everyone. However, it is kind of a Finance topic for me, so I figured I’d share. What do you mean by “monetizing”? Well, it basically means I’m going to try to create a revenue stream on my blog. I’ve been blogging for more than 3 years now (almost 4). There were some false starts and mistakes, […]

Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Today is kind of another “thought” exercise kind of post about “Passive Basic Needs“. Passive Basic Needs? Yea. It kind of sounds weird, but it’s basically another take on “Passive Income”, but made more simplistic. I’m going to start this post this a story about my friend Nathan. Back in college I had a happy-go-lucky friend named Nathan. He was an extraordinarily smart kid although he found college classes […]

Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Today we’re going to talk about the pretty simple concept of “Books are Unlimited“. Books are Unlimited? Yea. So remember how I talked about Non-Monetary Returns on Investment? This kind of follows along those lines. Like I’ve talked about before, I think loving to read and a thirst for knowledge is very important. I didn’t realize how important it was until I was much, much older of course. The […]
