GO Banking Rates – August 7, 2017
Whatever your age, retirement might be possible for you. It comes down to planning, preparation, the lifestyle you want and your definition of retirement.”
I liked this article because it showed that people of any age can retire, if they take certain steps. There are so many articles out there about how people think they’ll never be able to retire. Well, most people can if they plan for it.
I also like this article because it addresses people from their 20s to their 70s. Everybody’s life is different. The article also points out different methods of building wealth and retirement income, from real estate to the stock market to pensions.
Edward Jones – August 11, 2017
I wanted to follow up my post on Friday about market corrections. This article from Edward Jones explains a bit of what happened in the stock market last week. It also addresses what they think you should do, which is basically “don’t try to time the market and make sure you have a good asset allocation.” I cannot stress enough how important it is to not try to beat the market. Unless you are actually Warren Buffett. If that’s the case, please reach out to me. I think we should be friends.
Money – August 11, 2017
And this one is just…wow.
I learned about the television show Rick and Morty just two weeks ago. Apparently it’s pretty popular, though not really my style. Anyway, in the show they mention McDonald’s Szechuan sauce fairly often. I kind of vaguely remember this stuff, how about you?
McDonald’s gave away a limited amount of this sauce recently, and somebody put it on Ebay. The winning bid was $15,000. FIFTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS. For a bottle of dipping sauce. WHAT?!?!
I’m a big fan of food and I’ll pay a little more for my favorite items, but that is beyond ridiculous. Somebody tell that guy that I will make him a vat of the stuff for the bargain price of $10,000. There are recipes for it on the internet!
