The Swan Life: November 2016

Hello readers, it’s Lucy again! Wow, did November fly by or was it just me? It’s definitely that time of year where the weather changes and the holidays fall upon us, we blink and the year will be over. I find myself making a few mental notes, more of a to-do list of things to complete before 2016 turns to 2017. Things like Christmas gift shopping, travel coming up (I have a bunch in December), decorations for around the house. But enough about thinking in the future, let’s recap November!

The Investment Inflection Point: The FIRE Starter

Hello $wanigans! Thanks for stopping by The Green Swan. Today I’m here to chat about another one of my investment goals. Back a few months ago I spoke about my 4 Year Goal in my post about my Net Worth Explosion. Feel free to read about it more there, but this is my ongoing goal to double my net worth every four years. Not necessarily a difficult task to achieve in the early stages, but I expect it to get much more difficult in the coming iterations now that I’ve reach the double comma club.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello all! Happy turkey day to my fellow ‘Mericans! This is one of my favorite holidays. I know some dread getting together with extended family, not me. My wife, Lucy, and I both get along great with our respective in-laws and siblings. To me, this is a day to enjoy time with great family, great food, a little football on TV and, weather permitting, a little catch outside too! And privately, it is nice for Lucy and I to reflect on all we are thankful for. Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving!

My Money Mistakes and Regrets

Hello folks! Thanks for visiting The Green Swan. Earlier in the week I posted on the money mistakes we make by decade which shared some commentary on a recent article/podcast in the Wall Street Journal. And today I have a confession to make…I’m not perfect…I know that probably comes as a surprise, but I too have made mistakes with my money that have cost me. And today I’m ready to come out of the closet and share my money mistakes and regrets. Continue reading My Money Mistakes and Regrets

Money Mistakes By Decade

Money Mistakes By Decade

Money Mistakes By Decade

Hello $wanigans! As always, thanks for stopping by The Green Swan. I’ve been a big fan of podcasts in the last year or so and follow a number of good ones. Just a few weeks ago I was listening to one from the Wall Street Journal titled Biggest Money Mistakes We Make, By Decades. This podcast was actually just a discussion about an article that was recently published on the WSJ online which does go into a little more detail than the podcast if you were interested in checking it out.

This podcast and article are actually very timely as I was in the process of writing a blog post anyway on my biggest money mistakes and regrets. So I thought it would be interesting to share with everyone an overview of the WSJ findings along with my commentary and then also share a follow up post on Monday detailing my money mistakes and regrets. As always, I hope you jump in and share your thoughts and money mistakes (if you’ve ever made any 😉 ) in the comments below. Continue reading Money Mistakes By Decade
