The Sunday Best (10/29/2017)

The Sunday Best

The Sunday Best

The Sunday Best is a collection of articles I’ve curated for your reading pleasure.

Expect most of the writing to be from recent weeks and consistent with the themes presented on this website: investing & taxes, financial independence, early retirement, and physician issues.

 

Presenting, this week’s Sunday Best:

 

A couple of great people I met this week at FinCon17 got together in this outside-the-box investor profile Coach Carson interviews Rich on Money in Real Estate Investing While Overseas in the Military.

 

David of I Retired Young did just that. What does Sally think about all this? How the Other Half Lives — My Wife’s View of My Early Retirement.

 

The White Coat Investor wants to see how the other half lives, so he’s been Playing Early Retiree. I hear it’s a fun game to play!

 

Optimal Withdrawal Rates and Sequence of Returns Risk are analyzed actuarially by the one and only Actuary on FIRE in Reprise! Sequence of Returns Risk.

 

I love it when readers take my advice to start their own DAF, a gift that truly keeps on giving. Our friends at Need2Save have done so: Starting and Maintaining a Donor Advised Fund.

 

I think a list of three might be the tip of an iceberg, but Darrow Kirkpatrick of Can I Retire Yet? identified some good ones in The 3 Great Misconceptions About Retirement Saving.

 

Lets turn our focus from misconceptions to nasty habits. From my friend Dr. Cory S. Fawcett, Three Bad Habits for Your Wealth.

 

Big ERN is not one to chase returns. On Early Retirement Now, he profiles one asset with an amazing track record. This Fund Returned Over 100% Year to Date. I’m Still Not Buying It!

 

I’ve been shopping online for nearly 20 years, but I’ve never bought a carrot or box of Triscuits online. Is online grocery shopping the next frontier? From Adventure Rich, The Triumphs and Pitfalls of Grocery Shopping Online.

 

Our cardiologist friend from Dads Dollars Debts lost his home in a most unfortunate FIRE. An update on his life turned upside down in 2 Weeks Later — Tubbs Fire.

 

FinCon 2017!

 

A lack of further content brought to you by FinCon 2017, an amazing conference / party / opportunity to meet just about everyone you only knew online and become fast friends.

I’m fairly certain today marks the first time in 41 years that I slept through a Vikings kickoff. Darn you, bloggers. Darn you, NFL in London. Darn you, good times!

 

A generous and temporarily increased welcome bonus of 80,000 points & Peloton membership credits on the Chase Sapphire Preferred & premium card perks with the Chase Sapphire Reserve!

  3. Great collection as always! I read “How the Other Half Lives — My Wife’s View of My Early Retirement” and thought it was a great interview too. No wonder it was featured on Rockstar Finance!

    I missed out on your coozies at FinCon since I couldn’t make it this year. I’m glad you’re having a great time at the conference! ^.^

  4. Hey Doc,

    Hope you enjoyed FinCon.

    And thanks again for the Sunday’s Best. I enjoyed reading the articles. Btw, DadsDollarsDebt links are linking to CanIRetireYet. Hopefully you correct it when you get a chance.
