A diet is a regimen of eating and drinking sparingly so as to reduce one’s weight. A financial diet would be reducing your spending to achieve a particular goal such as saving, reducing debt or some other financial goal. I bet you thought I was just going to talk about dieting. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a patch for dieting and personal finance?
Vince Lombardi said “The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will”. Whether we are talking about dieting or financial goals, will power is the juice that helps us achieve success. Recently, I wrote about “A Different Investment Strategy” to illustrate multiple income streams. Next week I wrote an article called “The Google Diet” to illustrate what you can do about your finances.
How are you doing with your diet? It is one of the more popular New Year’s Resolutions. How are doing with your personal finance goals? Are you thinking short or long term? Are you making progress? Fortunately, I found some of the best articles of the week. This makes a good segue to today’s picks for Friday Night Links.
The following articles caught my attention:
Accountant by Day –Taxes and Innovation
Afford Anything – Go Ahead…Be Nosy
Barbara Friedberg Personal Finance – 50 Habits to Increase Wealth
Boomer & Echo – How to Manage Your Cash Flow
Buck Inspire – Can You Talk Freely About Stocks?
The selection of blogs is up to the committee of one established by krantcents as a representative of the Academy of Frugal Journalistic Writers. That committee can be influenced by meaningful comments, signing up for my RSS feeds, backlinks, links, trackbacks, Facebook Likes, Twitter, Re-tweets, Digg, StumbleUpon, delicio, Yahoo Buzz, Google Bookmarks and other social media. If you plan on creating a single purpose political action committee (PAC) to buy advertising on my blog to solely influence the committee, please go ahead! Please understand it will not influence the results.
I read more than five hundred (500) articles a week and I highlight just five (5) in my Friday Night Links. What are you doing about your personal finance goals? Thank you for reading Friday Night Links Diet Edition.
