We’re just about halfway through the year 2021. Isn’t that wild to think about? It feels like just yesterday the calendar turned over from 2020, but here we are. If you made any personal goals for the new year, how are they going? Now might be a good point to reevaluate and maybe even set new goals for the second half of 2021!
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
- Do you remember the show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? I’m sure you do. In this post, Nick writes about how Americans became obsessed with millionaires and looks into whether or not $1 million is still the important financial landmark it once was.

- It’s been over a year since the pandemic began. With summer knocking on the door, people are itching to start going out and spending money again. This post outlines a few financial moves to make BEFORE you start spending lots of money.
- In 2016, Ben wrote the opposite article of this asking if there had ever been a BETTER time to be a homebuyer. The housing environment has certainly shifted over the last 5 years and Ben explains why in his latest post.
