Weekly Roundup - January 7, 2017
|Happy Weekend! Check out what's been going on in my world and some of the best articles from around the blogosphere.|
I took a bit of a break from the roundups over the last couple weeks because we were just too busy and due to the timing of the holidays it was always ramping up towards the end of the week.
It's hard to believe that we're already a full week in to 2017. I have a feeling that 2017 is going to fly by. The one thing I can tell you about what 2017 has in store is changes are coming and to expect the unexpected. Other than that you're on your own.
Speaking of the new year being underway, Roadmap2Retire is offering up another installment of his "Top Investment Picks" contest. Picking the best investment over a 1 year time frame isn't exactly in my wheelhouse, but I went with Nike, Inc. which is a company that was trading near what I consider fair value, has a good chance for double digit growth and if things go well for them 20%+ growth. Make sure you check out the rest of the picks from the 30+ bloggers he asked.
Also I have to say thanks to The Ways to Wealth. Back in May I wrote a post giving advice to recent/upcoming high school and college graduates. Well, The Ways to Wealth thought it was good enough to be included in their "Top 100 Posts To Help You Achieve Financial Freedom". That's a great honor and maybe 2017 will see a repeat appearance.
On to the Roundup
In case you missed them, here's the posts from Passive-Income-Pursuit over the past week.
