Weekly Roundup - May 14, 2016
Our big concern was what to do in the meantime so we could have some income coming in. I know my wife didn't want to go back to work, but like I mentioned she had the easiest path to employment. The great news is that she's already lined up a teaching job for the next school year. So at least we'll have some income coming in.
My original plan for the year was to wait until I went on FMLA once my wife has our child in July and then I'd use that time to finally make the swap over to Wordpress. Well, with a lot more time on my hands now the switch will likely be moved up until the next few weeks. I'm just now starting the process, although I need to get a lot of writing done too which is a bit at odds with making the move. If anyone has any tips or tricks on making the move please feel free to pass them along because I'm looking for ideas and ways to make the transition as seamless as possible.
Now that I'm home again I can get back to sharing some of the definitions from The Devil's Financial Dictionary by Jason Zweig (affiliate link). For those that don't know the book is a nice little time killer that gives brutally honest and often humorous definitions of different finance and investing terminology.
Today's word/definition is:
"Long-Term, adj. - On Wall Street, a phrase used to describe a period that begins approximately 30 seconds from now and ends, at most, a few weeks from now."The definition of long term varies wildly from person to person. For Warren Buffett it means a lifetime; however, oftentimes the talking heads really mean a couple months at most. The longer your investment horizon the higher likelihood of the share price actually reflecting the value of the company.
