Welcome to a new feature on the blog, each Friday I will share with you interesting articles from across the web. I hope you enjoy and absolutely feel free to share and pass along.
Our Kansas City Financial Planner Weekly Roundup
If you live in Kansas City, then you just experienced our first snow of the year yesterday. And, in my opinion, hopefully, the first of many more to come. It’s always fun to see snow on the ground.
I heard on the news that we haven’t had three inches of snow in Kansas City in over 1,700 days - since 2014. That just seemed like a crazy stat, but when I think about it, I guess we haven’t had much over the last few years.
Moving on from the weather that most people probably don’t care about - even those who live in Kansas City :-) - I am introducing a new segment on my blog. It’s basically a quick roundup of some of the best articles I ran across and why I think they’re must-reads - think of it as your weekend reading list if you get a few moments.
I hope you enjoy. Feel free to share on social media and let me know what you think.
And, guess what...no more political ads!!!
Have a great weekend.

In our next recommended piece, Physican on Fire goes covers how the media isn’t quite grasping what the FIRE (financially independent, retire early) acutally means. It’s not all about living off food scraps and becoming a hermant. If you’re looking to learn more and maybe even start the journey yourself, you don’t want to miss this one.
FIRE has been featured prominently, but not all that well, in recent mainstream media articles. What's wrong and how to best make it right.
