“But what will you do all day?” This is a question many retirees face as they prepare for departure from the working world. Among many of the answers are, “I’m going to travel the world and go outside my comfort zone,” because it’s not something we get to do much when we’re working full-time. If […]

How to Get Started With Mint.com


Like many people this time of year, I’m thinking about my financial goals and resolutions for the New Year. Last year was the first year I diligently tracked each and every expense, using a trusty excel spreadsheet. While I’ve been pretty good at using my system, it’s not a perfect system by any means.

Quicken 2015 for Windows Review – Analyze Your Investment Portfolio

Quicken 2015 for Windows

I’ve been a long-time user of Intuit’s Quicken since 1992 — now over 20 years. My family and I track 60+ accounts within Quicken. So to say I’m a power-user of their product would be an understatement. We have every bank account, credit card, asset, retirement, investment, and liability linked within the software. For this […]

Personal Capital Review – Investment Centric Version of Mint.com

Personal Capital

As I’ve discussed in my Mint.com review, I think Mint is great as budgeting tool but poor for investment planning. Mint is targeting people who are just starting out with their finances (Generation Y and Z). As I mentioned previously, I wished for a web 2.0 app that focused more on the investing side of […]

MONEY Master the Game by Tony Robbins: Book Review

MONEY Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom by Tony Robbins

I just finished reading the latest book from Tony Robbins, Money Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom. It’s a long title for a book, but it’s also a large book (almost 700 pages in length). This is the first book from Tony Robbins in over 20 years, so I was excited to […]
