I’m learning to build online tools to enhance this web site in the future. For example, I’d like to add a newsletter as an alternate way to keep you informed with fresh perspectives on the decisions that matter in personal finance.
Late in the first quarter of 2016, I plan to begin publishing blog posts here on a regular basis. Of course the topic will be innovative approaches to personal finance, approaches that make wealth creation not only automatic but inevitable.
I also expect to publish another book or two on subjects hinted at in The Magic River of Money.
If you haven’t tried the book yet, click on its cover in the right hand column (elsewhere in the scroll if you’re on a mobile device) and read the free sample.
Think of self-publishing as an inexpensive hobby that can turn serious and become a source of supplemental income. Start part-time and work toward a full-time livelihood. Or plan ahead to pursue your writing passion in (or instead of) retirement.
Publishing the traditional way, with a large commercial publishing house, is at once easier and more difficult than self-publishing.
In the wake of Mom passing at age 94, I want to thank those of you who responded with sympathy and prayer.
Mom’s career was on the administrative side of public education and several years of her retirement were spent as a literacy volunteer and public library docent.
She had a good, long life and we were lucky to have her with us these many years.
Though Mom wasn’t a writer, per se, she left 3 volumes of memoirs, the results of her 2 sons working with her on personal and family history projects.
Perhaps more on those, another time.*
*In one of her memoirs, there’s a chapter on “Thrift in the 1950’s,” that might be of interest to Magic River of Money readers. It’s about the financial methods she and Dad used to steer their little family through the rocky shoals of meager times.
