AK Monthly Recap: March 2019

March brought me to Guyana. That, far and away, was what dominated the month — my weeklong trip to the little-visited country in South America. It was an unbelievable trip and I can’t wait to start writing about it for you. Honestly, this month was so dominated by work that I didn’t get up to much else. I was working like crazy to write all kinds of solo female travel guides, and I still have quite a few. But even though I was crazy busy this month, I still got a TON of books in. Behold: March ...

Weekend reading: See why you should invest a lump sum now (and a scam alert!)

What caught my eye this week. I am running late this week, so I’ll cut straight to the chase and suggest you check out this post on investing a lump sum over at the Of Dollars and Data blog. Author Nick Maggiulli writes: The main reason Lump Sum outperforms Dollar Cost Averaging [DCA] is because most markets generally rise over time.
