I've neglected the blog for the past month, because I have been super busy with my new part-time permanent job and a new client in my technology consulting business.
Matt asked me to tell him "what's next" for him to work on financially. I will post more meaty (or soyey?) entries soon. I expect life insurance to be an upcoming topic, as Nicole and I recently went through this process.
The best way to build financial security and wealth is to be employed. All the other tools I mention are supplementary to a stable and sufficient income stream.
