Let's waste the first day of work of the year
The new working year starts today: how are you feeling about it? Whether you love your job or can't stand the thought of doing it for the next twenty years, it is worth thinking about your financial situation and taking meaningful action.
Or you could just waste the day clicking on interesting links ;)
Here are this week's stories:
Countdown clocks. The first five years of running your own business you work hard and make no money. The next five years you work hard and make money. The following five you make lots of money and don't work as hard. My wife and I are clearly not good at business...
The benefits of working remotely. I'm a huge fan of this.
9 principles to let you retire a millionaire. Don't think buying a house is always right in Japan, and 10% is not enough to save (I recommend 20-30%), but otherwise good ;)

Hunting for deceased parents' buried treasure. My grandmother had several tins around the house crammed with cash.

Another millionaire doctor interview. I clearly chose the wrong profession.
19 secrets your millionaire neighbour won't tell you. Pretty basic stuff but worth reminding yourself of.
I enjoyed this short video of a woman eating candy floss so much that I posted it even though it has nothing to do with money. By far the most popular post this week.

How to talk to people about money. Your goals change the optimal strategy.
How doctors die. They are more realistic about medicine.
Financial debates with no definitive answer. But some great thoughts.
Anything you liked? Any other suggestions?
