This is a personal opinion blog written by me and only me!
Until September of 2011, when I started writing for Forbes.com, I only wrote in my little notebook journal beside my bed. In my closet, there sits a box full of old journals dating back to when I was a child. Who knew back then, I’d have my own byline on a major financial news site and have my own blog to boot!
I absolutely love sharing ideas and insights about money that may help someone retire earlier, pay off debt, enjoy their life a bit more every day and/or give more to charities.
All that said, there are a couple of things to note about this blog. It’s a blog – not personalized investment advice. For advice specific to your situation, I suggest you meet with and hire a Certified Financial Planner(TM), Professional to tailor advice for your personal financial situation.
To be clear: The advice provided is not personalized investment advice, may not be suitable for your individual situation, are not guarantees of future performance, and may differ materially from actual events that occur.
