I’ve been moving to a new place, so posting has been light this week. But check out the 60+ comments on my post about spending money strategically and not being cheap. According to the commenters, I am right/wrong/eloquent/unqualified, and more. Also, one person accused me of being a greedy bastard, which made me laugh. Anyway, the best comments are where people write about what valuable things they decided to spend on this week. There are already some amazing results.
Also, a few interesting links I’ve been reading…
- Death to the 6 percent. This is cool. Why should you pay 6% to sell a house? Check for a future article on how excited I am to see stodgy old industries (like real estate) being disintermediated by new thinking and technologies.
- Men, women…and money.
- Someone’s comment about IWillTeachYouToBeRich that made me laugh. Also, note the response. There’s no evil conspiracy behind why this damn blog is all 1 page. I just didn’t set up archives from the beginning and I’m not sure how to do it right now. Don’t worry, it’s on my to-do list.
- Visa counsels Durham students on finance. Well, it’s a good start.
- Mickey D’s McMakeover. I wonder if some BusinessWeek editor was really proud when they thought of this title. Anyway, with this huge change coming, will you bet for or against their stock? Everyone loves to pick winners retrospectively (“I KNEW oil was going up!!”), so I’d love to see less Monday-morning quarterbacking and more predictive moves.
Stay tuned for Friday Entrepreneurs later today.
