I’ve been thinking more and more lately about passive income, having options in life, and also the looming stock market crash that could destroy everything Liz and I have worked so hard for. With these thoughts in my head, certain posts jump out at me and I just have to give them a read.
Here are the four posts that I found intriguing this past week and I bet that you’ll enjoy them too! Happy reading!
Dear Internet, Stop Telling Me to Quit My Job
– by Coffeelicious – Every millennial should be traveling around the world and sharing their handstand monument photos, right? Not necessarily. Bianca is a millennial and would rather work a job that she loves to receive a regular income. Not everyone is cut out for entrepreneurship, even if you are a millennial.
How I Traveled For 3 Weeks and Made Passive Income
– by I Will Teach You to Be Rich – On the flip side, some people are just dying to make a passive income so they can travel the world. I’m probably somewhere in between, but I’m definitely still intrigued at the thought of traveling the world with my family. Ramit Sethi did it, so why can’t I? And why can’t you?
Consumption Tendencies and the $250k Question
– by Personal Liberty – If you were moving to another area and were interested in a house for $250k, if I offered to pay you $250k at the same time, would you buy the house with cash? Or would you use the money for something else? This is the question that Steve Stewart asks when he first meets his clients. Surprisingly enough, people like J. Money and Paula Pant wouldn’t pay off the home mortgage. They’d invest the money either in index funds or in rental properties. What would you do?
The 2016 Market Crash is Coming
– by Market Watch – Everyone and their brother is afraid of the looming stock market crash. It’s coming. It’s inevitable. Even if the government prolongs it with lower interest rates or piles of cash, it’ll still come later. There’s no getting away from an economic bubble. The bigger it gets, the bigger the pop. So what can we expect? Check the article. AND, I’ll be writing up another post about this later in the week. Stay tuned.

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.
