A Simple Index Investing Guide for Americans

For a large portion of May, we were fortunate to be able to vacation in a nice warm location. Ok, you may have guessed it, it was Florida again. It seems to be the go-to spot for families from the east coast of Canada who get very little Spring weather. Or at least that’s our excuse for our once a year indulgence. During our vacation, we met some really great people that we consider good friends – for the sake of this article and anonymity, we’ll call them Mr. and Mrs. Orlando (original right?)...

What Makes a Story Relatable [Video]

Storytelling is the crux of evangelism, sermon writing, and teaching. It is how we communicate this message of Jesus from 2,000 years ago to being relevant now. The question is, what makes a story relatable. If you had to think of one person/company that understood making storytelling better, who/what would you think of? For me, it is absolutely Pixar. Think about their record with films and how well they share stories. Here is a quote from the video below about why Pixar does it so well: “Pixar...

Can Your HSA Contribution Amount Be Changed During The Year?

Life doesn’t usually give the courtesy of telling you when it’s about to change drastically. It doesn’t provide a crystal ball. If it did, that ball certainly would come in handy late in the year during the medical insurance enrollment period when we pick our medical coverage and set our health savings account (HSA) contribution amount for the following year. While you likely can’t switch your medical plan, you have a little more wiggle room when it comes to your HSA contributions. We’ve had an...

How to start

Quite a few years ago I found myself in a situation where I wanted to start my own business. I was sick of working at the places I was working at, and I wanted to get out on my own. Problem was… I had no idea what that was. I didn’t have any obvious breakout ideas. The experimental ideas I did have seemed impossible to market, as in, I had no idea how to sell anything. The thought occurred to me to try to raise money to build something, but I didn’t even know where to begin.It was an awful unmot...

Machine Learning: Beware the Bias

In the past year or so, I've been struck by how we tend to anthropomorphize the machines and mechanize the human beings whose data we rely on. The machines are "ingesting," "consuming," and "learning," while people's life stories, videos and loved-ones photos --the meaningful moments of their lives -- are flattened into consumable "documents" or "transactions."This observation is not an excuse to rant against artificial intelligence. On the contrary, the more I work with machine learning, the mo...
