No pain, no gain

Seeing your portfolio decline in value feels about as pleasant as doing a 10K run when you’re more of a couch potato. Or, maybe a root canal. But here’s the thing: there may be an opportunity when individual stocks (and your portfolio) take a dip in value. It’s all about thinking about your portfolio [...]

Will it pop?

As you’ve no doubt noticed, the price of housing has increased year over year. If you’re a homeowner, you might be wondering what you should do. Should you sell your home? You could look for something better, or downsize to help fund your retirement or invest more. Should you sit on it and wait [...]

The stuff they don’t teach you in school

I’ve always found it incredibly odd that our school system doesn’t really teach anything useful about personal finance – unless you deliberately learn it through postsecondary education. How much would it help to leave high school knowing the answers to questions like… How can I invest for the short term and long term? What [...]

Are you diverse?

I’ve talked about this before, but I really can’t stress enough how important diversification is when you’re playing the investment game.  To put it bluntly, if you put all your eggs in one basket, they’re all done for if the basket breaks.  If you spread your eggs out across multiple baskets, most of them [...]

You’re in good company

Is home your new base camp? With cases of COVID hitting record highs, you might be working at home or a bit reluctant to go out these days.  Now, what if you live alone? Or what if you just have a small social circle?  You might be spending a lot of time by yourself [...]

The secret to conversation…

Shh! I have a secret I want to share. The world has gone digital, but that doesn’t mean one-on-one communication has gone by the wayside - on the contrary!  With Zoom, Google Meet, and Skype, people communicate more than ever… and sometimes with a whole ‘room’ of people!  Job interviews, meetings, dating, teaching - [...]

Down the line

No matter how much we’d like to deny it, what gets passed down to us from our parents has a significant impact on our lives. Kids of active folks tend to be athletic adults. If we’re taught to floss from a young age, most of us will keep that up. Other times, the bad [...]

We all know someone who just never apologizes.  They might seem sorry by their body language or facial expressions, but why is it so hard for them to just say the darn words? What if you’re that person? There’s hope for you, don’t worry.  You might find it hard to apologize simply for the [...]

Give Yourself A Raise… By Quitting!

According to this article from Forbes, U.S inflation rose by 7% in 2021, which is a new 40-year high.  This is the result of increases across most consumer goods and services, but the biggest contributors are shelter, food, and used vehicles (the latter is the result of a chip shortage affecting manufacturing of new [...]

Patience, patience.

Markets are volatile because they respond to the news of the day.  News is unpredictable, so doesn't it follow that the markets will be unpredictable, too? It doesn't matter how true that fact is - truth doesn't make it enjoyable. It's how you choose to respond to the volatility that determines how successful you [...]
