Just the fact that you're looking at this page means you are on the right track. Believe it or not, no matter how many people preach about retirement savings, most people don't give the topic much thought at all. If I had to guess, I'd say a good...

I have watched more videos and have read more articles in the past few weeks on how the sky is falling than I've ever read in my entire life. Someone's got to be making a lot of money off of this stuff because it seems like no one's got anything...

I've read a few, but I'd like to know about more. Perhaps there are some I missed. I'll admit that after a while, I can only be told to save and invest my money as opposed to spending it all, but I still love to read the opinions of others in...

Now, this is interesting. Just as I was beginning to think that malls were going the way of the Dodo bird, a surprise pops up. Get this - I just read an article that says Amazon has been in talks for months with Simon Properties (the mall people)...

To gold bugs, gold is like real estate. There's never not a good time to buy. Ask any realtor if it's a good time to buy. "Of course it is! The markets are moving. Interest rates are down. There are many houses to choose from." Okay, is a good...

I was just watching a Dave Ramsey video on Youtube where a retired 70 year old woman called into the show. She wanted advice on possibly financing the cost of a garage she'd like to have built on her property. She lives two hours west of Olympia...

I've been actively investing since 2008 and since that time, I've taken advantage of a lot of online financial tools. Some great and some not so great. One tool I recently discovered and signed up for is called Sharesight. The reason I registered...
