The Future of Lazy Man and Money

You may have noticed that I didn't much last week. It was the annual FinCon personal finance convention in San Diego.

My Susan Lucci streak of losing Plutus Awards is still going strong. The biggest challenger is Stefanie O'Connell, but I've got a few years on her. She'll be fine... she's the next Jean Chatzky.

I was learning new things about personal finance, networking with new people, and getting tips about how to make this website a much better experience for you.

It's shameful that I haven't updated the design since 2007.

I've been working with a website designer to put together something fresh. You'll love it.

Expect to see it in about a month.

While that's going on, I'll be going though the ten years of articles I've written. I'll look for the best bits and pieces I've written. Then I'll combine them into articles that make personal finance easy and actionable.

I plan to start interviewing other personal finance bloggers and people who doing amazing things. I've met a few of them during this conference. Most people will learn something from their journeys. Many people will learn a few things.

Finally, the design will be great for those mobile users. That's the vast majority of you nowadays.

I've got a plan to deliver fewer, but higher quality, ads. If it works out, it will be great for everyone... and hopefully not too damaging to my wallet.

But I'm going to ask you for a little help... the stress on the little.

I need you to leave comments and questions. We learn by sharing thoughts and ideas about what works. Everyone makes mistakes and no one makes more than me... except maybe meteorologists.

This is why I need you to challenge me.

Let's do this!

A couple of months ago, I challenged you to Take the Monthly Income Challenge with me. The idea was simple: come up with some way to make more money in a month. It really doesn’t matter how much, the important thing was to start it and track it. From there you can look how to […]

I usually try to stay away from clickbait titles. They always seem disappointing. However, I don’t know how you can be disappointed with this. Yesterday, Amazon announced that it is releasing the 2nd Generation Echo Dot. The big news is that the price went from $90 to a penny shy of $50. And if you […]

The following guest post on investing methods was written by Jim Cooper. Jim is a part-time freelance blogger who covers lifestyle, finance, and similar topics. “Step 1: Open a brokerage account if you have several thousand dollars.” This is the first line I saw when, some time ago, I somewhat-embarrassingly started googling things like “How […]

When “Work” Isn’t Work…

I’ve mentioned before, I’m a huge fan of the NFL’s New England Patriots. (Stick with me a bit non-football fans.) At least one day of the week, you will find me my “Do Your Job” shirt. Quite honestly, I consider the team to be the best run organization in the United States… and possibly the […]

That title isn’t just what my wife sings while at the Bubble Lounge in San Francisco or while in a spa… it’s the topic of today’s article. Earlier this week, I said I was going to try to be more positive. So before I get into some heavy negative stuff, I feel it’s worth reflecting […]

A couple of weeks ago, I received the following letter from Cox Communications, my cable service provider: (Click the image for a larger version.) I believe it is best to automate your money so that you can avoid late fees, cancellation of service, and well, “work.” This letter from Cox tells me that they tried […]

Labor Day Sundry Thoughts

It’s Labor Day, so I don’t know if I’m supposed to be writing an article or not. Hopefully, you are all grilling away and not too buried in the Internet. I had a couple of article ideas for today, but they seemed a little curmudgeon-y. Those articles wouldn’t come out well, because I’m in a […]

I didn’t plan to write this article today. I had hoped to write about EpiPens as I mentioned a couple of days ago. Unfortunately, once again, life intervened, so I’m pivoting to an article that is easier to write. I ask that you please bear with me. I’m a little surly after spending yesterday responding […]

I very rarely write an article about good deals, but today I’m making an exception. (Also, this will give me a little more time to work on the EpiPen article that had been trying to get finished last week.) Amazon’s Deal of the Day is on this LG 55-Inch Curved Smart OLED TV. I’m going […]
