I’m totally worn out from working at and competing in a taekwondo tournament yesterday, so I’ll just get right to the great posts from the M-Network and beyond!
My favorite post this week (of all time) is What I Learned from the 2001 New England Patriots at Lazy Man and Money. I have been a Patriots fan my entire life (I grew up in the northeast, it is in my blood) and this post combines my love for football with my love of financial lessons. A great read. I may print it and hang it in my house. Right next to my very rare “New England Patriots Superbowl XX Champions” pennant.
Other posts I particularly enjoyed:
Plonkee Money: What is one of the most important skills you need for good personal finance? I guarantee you already have it.
Gather Little By Little: Why Personal Finance is like Driving a Car. Excellent analogy that related important personal finance principles in a really approachable way.
Financial Dominance: What is the 4% rule? I learn something more about retirement from Brian every day. I had heard of this 4% thing but now I understand it a whole lot better.
DebtFREE-Revolution: Paying Bills is Fun Now. I don’t get quite as much enjoyment out of paying bills but I am a huge believer in a budget, and I do actually enjoy paying my credit card bill and seeing the number shrink.
Money Smart Life: Retirement: It’s Like Being 18 Only With Money. That headline would totally catch my eye too! Wait… it did catch my eye….
Fiveberries In Texas: Family Breakfast. I’m inspired… I want to have family breakfasts. Except I am lazy and like sleep.
Simply Us: Lessons Learned (AKA Murphy Enters Stage Left). A real life illustration of the importance of an emergency fund. I’ve been on an emergency fund kick lately.
That’s the roundup for this week! Hope you find something fascinating!
