We hit a pretty cool milestone on the Mullooly Asset Show yesterday: Episode 250! That is a LOT of personal finance, investing, and financial planning tips. Check out yesterday’s episode here if you missed it.
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
‘Predicting Inflation is Hard’ – Ben Carlson – A Wealth of Common Sense
- To be fair, predicting just about anything in the financial world is extremely difficult to get right consistently. However, Ben writes about why predicting inflation might just be the most difficult economic piece of data to get right.
‘How to Choose the Right Type of Mortgage’ – Peter Lazaroff
- We all know how crazy the real estate market has been since the pandemic began, but it’s still incredibly important to pick the right mortgage. Peter goes over the different types of mortgages in his latest post.
‘Get Financial Advice First, Investment Advice Later’ – Christine Benz – Morningstar
- Updating a piece from 2018, Christine outlines why it’s so important for folks to start with general financial planning advice FIRST and move on to investment advice SECOND. You don’t want to put the cart before the horse and skip right to investing without having the basics down.
‘Blink’ – Michael Batnick – The Irrelevant Investor
- A moving, personal piece from Michael about how the last 10 years since his mother passed away have gone by like the blink of an eye. He writes about the circle of life and how he’s grown into his adult life to become successful by his own terms.
