Here's Journal Club 9/11/20! Every week, I hold a JOURNAL CLUB. After filtering through the articles on the web, I present a few that impacted my life this week. Be safe and stay well!
- Navigating the world of finance can be tricky, and there are quite a few pitfalls waiting for you along the way. In this article, Wealthy Doc lists a full dozen of these common mistakes. The idea is to really get you thinking about your priorities and goals, and which areas of your life deserve more focus–and which deserve less.
- Many of my readers have families or plan to have one in the future. I can say that as I’ve learned about personal finance and investing, one major goal has always been to provide well for my children. This includes giving them the knowledge and tools to be successful on their own. In this article, Debt Free Doctor discusses this same idea and includes talking points you can bring up with your own family.
- In this short podcast episode, Mad Fientist discusses the ups and downs he’s experienced in his fourth year of financial independence–everything from the impact of the COVID-19 market crash to taking advantage of travel rewards. It’s good motivation for those on the road to financial freedom, and good advice for those who’ve already achieved it.
- Disability insurance can be a powerful tool in protecting your assets. In this post from the White Coat Investor, the author details many aspects of obtaining disability insurance for yourself. This includes the application process, certain clauses, and even what to do if you anticipate getting a Green Card. If disability insurance has crossed your mind, this is a very informative read.
That’s it for this week! I hope Journal Club 9/11/20 was helpful to you.
Lastly, here's a little bit of motivation below. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
