So, it’s a different kind of blog for me this week. I still got up bright and early each morning and instead of researching things I wanted to write about I fell down the rabbit hole of the internet instead. And what exactly did I get out of a week of Google searches? Education.

Hairy Audacious Goal

Steadily and consistently increasing our net worth often has me concerned that I’m missing something, doing something wrong or doing it too slowly so it is time I set myself (and my family) a new short term goal.

Insurance (YAWN)

Whatever your situation it’s important to take a look every year or two at your level of insurance cover. It bores me to have to do it if I’m honest because it always means looking over documents which are designed to be confusing. Plus, it involves me having to make phone calls, wait for new policy documents to arrive, ask questions and so on. It ALWAYS takes longer than you think it will. But once it is done I’m pleased I did it.

Becoming an Investor*

All your working life you are trying to increase your net worth so that when you finally stop working you start to slowly spend it to live on. If upon retirement each year you take 4% out of your pot of savings it will take about 30 years to boil the pot dry. So what can you live on a year? Do you need to invest $100K, $200 or $500K?
