Today, I’m going to share with you — in the hopes that we can all heed his words a little more closely — the seemingly "magic" formula he uses to consistently beat the market…
Came across this money poem and thought you’d enjoy it 🙂
My dad gave me one dollar bill
‘Cause I’m his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
‘Cause two is more than one!
And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes — I guess he don’t know
That three is more than two!
Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just ’cause he can’t see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!
And I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!
And then I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head–
Too proud of me to speak!

To everyone who lives in the United States: Happy Fourth of July!
Today is Independence Day here in the United States. While I absolutely love history, I will let Wikipedia give you the history lesson because today I want to talk about a different sort of independence: Financial Independence.
Financial Independence to me consists of the following:
No need to work another day in my life – If I truly reached “financial independence” it would mean I would have enough income-producing assets to live off of for the rest of my life…
But hey, what’s not to love about a $8 date on buy one get one free movie night here in Grenada? Oh, and the popcorn is super cheap too, but that’s detratracting from the point of this post… which is that normally I am pretty happy to be on this island, but it’s hard not to miss the U…
I’m not much for paying attention to what I eat or how often I exercise, but when I started gaining weight, my doctor questioned if my new medication was to blame, or if it was my lifestyle. She suggested that I keep a food and exercise diary, but then quickly changed her mind as she watched my kids tumble across the exam table…
