Weekly Wisdom: Best Investing Lessons
I’ll start off our weekly collection of wise posts with a question: why do we call these “lessons.” Aren’t you learning more? Then, shouldn’t the right word be more-ons… oh, maybe that explains it.
Anyways, I’ve scoured the web this week to find some of the best posts on investing and making money. And some other personal financial topics, too. Please feel free to peruse and click.
Also, I get email after email asking me: why didn’t you include my post? “I’m wise,” they say. “I’m interesting. Validate me.” I just want to tell both of you that I included the posts this week. Sheesh.
If, however, you believe your post was wrongly rejected by my scientifically-powered roundup, please include the link in the comment section.
