Fixing My Biggest Money Mistake

Last week, I wrote about My Biggest Money Mistake. It was not a money mistake that most people can identify with. I over-optimized and put too much into retirement accounts. It’s great if we are looking to maximize our net worth. It’s very poor if the plan is to use the money to pay expenses now – 15 years before traditional retirement age. As I mentioned in my previous article, this is a “good problem” to have. We’ve been extremely lucky that most of our personal finance plans have worked...

How To Use Securities-Based Lending to Manage Cash Flow

Earlier this year, ProPublica did an exposé of how the ultra-rich pay relatively little income tax. One of their techniques is that they live on borrowed money. They don’t realize capital gains when they don’t sell their appreciated assets. No realized gains, no taxes. Meanwhile, their assets keep growing, and banks are increasingly comfortable lending them more money for their spending. Wall Street Journal called this strategy “Buy, Borrow, Die” (audio starts at 7:27). We the small-time inve...

My Biggest Money Mistake

For whatever reason, people love to ask me about my biggest money mistake. Other bloggers will ask it when they are compiling a top ten article.

Basically, the “after college” time wouldn’t make many of my financial highlight reels. However, in hindsight, I don’t think either were big money mistakes...

How to Teach Your Teen Investing

They say that best writers steal ideas from others and make them their own. I’m not sure about stealing, but I have to admit that my ideas come from the input of others. That can be from books, newspapers, blog articles, television, essentially any media. Usually, making them my own involves adding some of my own thoughts, opinions, and commentary. (On very rare occasions it involves adding comedy.) Occasionally, the idea is so good, I don’t have anything else to add – I’m simply pointing t...
