the reformed brokerI absolutely love reading other personal finance posts throughout the week.

Truly, I do love to write articles, but if someone already summed up a point perfectly, then why not just pass it on to you and let you check it out? That’s exactly what I’m doing today. Here are the absolute best personal finance posts from this past week. Enjoy!

Here’s the Salary You Have to Earn to Buy a Home in 15 Major U.S. Cities – by Business Insider – After reading this article, I’m so glad that I live in West Michigan.

10 Changes to Make in Your 30s That Will Set You Up for Lifelong Success – by Business Insider – This list is pretty basic, but it’s a good reminder of what needs to be done in order to be a success as you advance in your years.

It’s Not About What You DESERVE – by NZ Muse – I really hate it when people talk about what they DESERVE. As far as I’m concerned, nobody deserves anything in this life. Some get head-starts in life, others don’t; that’s just the way life works. I think this writer agrees with my sentiments completely.

Which of these top PF articles did you like best?



My name is Derek, and I have my Bachelors Degree in Finance from Grand Valley State University. After graduation, I was not able to find a job that fully utilized my degree, but I still had a passion for Finance! So, I decided to focus my passion in the stock market. I studied Cash Flows, Balance Sheets, and Income Statements, put some money into the market and saw a good return on my investment. As satisfying as this was, I still felt that something was missing. I have a passion for Finance, but I also have a passion for people. If you have a willingness to learn, I will continue to teach.


  1. Glad you liked the site I put together while drinking one night 😉

    • Lol. It speaks the perfect truth and definitely made me laugh – especially when I clicked on the first message. 😉 Well done.

  2. I also conquer with the that the reason most people are still poor is because they spend more than they earn. I work with what I have and although am not the richest person in town, I am far better than people who earn the same as I do. I also liked the article on cheapest cities to buy a house.

    • Glad you liked the personal finance reads! They were definitely pretty solid. I’m with you on the earnings scale Chella. There are plenty of people that I work with that live paycheck to paycheck and have absolutely no money in savings. It’s just crazy! If they stay on that road, don’t they realize that they’ll be absolutely broke in retirement?
