One of my favorite subjects that I talk a lot about on this blog, is the subject of wealth. As you know, I share my net worth monthly. Although there are many beliefs and philosophies on how wealth could be accumulated, the mathematical nature of wealth is all the same: Wealth (Net Worth) = Assets - Liabilities. Here’s a little graphic to help us visualize this concept: So what are some basic facts that we could derive from this? If I want to increase my net worth, all I have to do is increase my assets and reduce my liabilities If my ... (more)

Traditionally, I use TaxCut to prepare my tax, but this year I am going to give TaxCut Online a try.  The nice thing about the online version is that I don’t have to pay until I am ready to file. This means that I can peruse their help section and interactive video library free of charge. For example, the first interactive ... (more)

So the stock market is doing badly and there’s fear of recession.

With the recent stock market volatility, I am sure a lot of us are having second thought about the stock market. Some may even ask, “Should I get out of the stock market?” The answer is it depends.
