Yahoo finance used to be a powerhouse of great personal articles and videos. Their quality has declined as of late, but there are still some gems to be had if you're digging through the archives. Here is a quick video I like by Farnoosh Torabi. In it she details some of the habits of people making more than $150,000 annually with $3.2 million in investable assets. … [Read more...] about Daily Habits of Wealthy People
Its Sunday - so it's time for a round up. Here are a couple of articles that struck me this week, and so here is our Sunday Round Up.

Good morning Dinks. Let me ask you a question, did you meet me this past September at FinCon? Actually here's a better question...do you remember me? Whenever I meet someone I always introduce myself as Kristina, or Tahnya Kristina (that's my real name) but people know me by both depending on where they know me from.

Usually people don't give their spam box a second look because it's the spot where your mail service sends unwanted notes from people who are soliciting money...and other things. But surprisingly this past week I found some rather interesting things in my spam box. I use both Gmail and Yahoo … [Read more...] about What’s in Your Spam Box?
Yep, the original DINKs, James & Miel are about to no longer qualify for the status of DINKs.

When we started DINKs Finance eight years ago, on the eve of our marriage, we were like many couples in their late twenties and early twenties. We really didn't know … [Read more...] about DINKs No Longer!
