Welcome to the weekly roundup where I share with you interesting articles from across the web. I hope you enjoy and absolutely feel free to share and pass along.
Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of the NextGen Wealth Weekly Roundup. Hope you’re having a great week!
Yet again there seems to be a sigh of relief this week as the U.S. and China have started to take steps to ease the tension of the trade war. Trump announced Wednesday that the U.S had agreed to delay another round of tariffs by two weeks, as a “goodwill gesture” to China.
This announcement seems to have put investors in a buying mood, as we saw stocks rise Thursday. The S&P 500 closed within .6% of it’s all time high that it reached in July, and the Dow Jones saw it’s 7th positive session in a row for the first time since May 2018.
China also announced that they plan to exclude American farm goods from tariffs, in another effort to calm some of the tensions. This came after Trump said he would consider an interim trade deal, even though he did not prefer to.
One of the biggest problems in this trade war has been China’s agriculture buying, and it seems China may be working towards a change as their domestic firms have been looking into prices on pork and soybeans. But, we will continue to wait and see whether any kind of agreement is reached.
So enough of my commentary, let’s jump in and check out some of the best articles I ran across from the past week. Enjoy the weekend and find some time to relax.
First up, we turn to iliketodabble with an interview with a financial analyst, where he shares how he uses blogging as a “side hustle.” Riley gives information on how he started blogging on the side, and how he balances this with his day job.

Next up, we turn to Maple Money with a compiled list of jobs that can be done from your home, or anywhere for that matter. More and more people are looking to find employment from home to avoid the normal 9 to 5 hours, and get the chance to work for themselves. Maple Money shares some very reasonable and legitimate jobs that can be done from home.
Does the idea of being able to make money from home appeal to you? Would you love to bring in a good income at a job without having to take orders from anyone but yourself? If so, you've come to the right place.
Next up, we turn to Get Rich Slowly with a look at the mixing of politics and personal finance, and if politics actually needs to be intertwined. J.D. shares some of his thoughts on the subject, and how this talk was started because of a financial conference, FINCON, that happened last week. Read on for information on what politics in the personal finance world can look like.
written by J.D. Roth - published (updated ) Note: I've added a short addendum to this piece in an attempt to clarify some things. This may or may not have helped. Earlier this week at The Washington Post, Helaine Olen wrote that the world of personal finance needs more politics.
In our final read of the week, we turn to Budgets Are Sexy sharing an interesting outlook on complaints and negativity, and how we can apply this to our personal and financial lives. Focusing on the negativity and complaining about our financial situation can hinder our goals and make it that much harder to get where we want to be. We can’t always control our negative thinking, but changing how we speak and holding in complaints can make a big difference.
Morning! Was talking to a friend the other day on how people love to complain about things but never do anything about 'em, and he hit me with a convo he used to have with his employees back in the corporate days: I will listen to your complaints twice.
Things We Were Up To This Week
The newest version of the iPhone just came out, and it seems like all of your friends are getting it. The latest console has just been unveiled, and your buddies were some of the first to buy it. Does this sound familiar? These days, it seems like more and more people are participating in "conspicuous consumption."
Enjoy the weekend and spend time with family and friends. Take a break from work and give your mind some well-deserved rest from the long week. Cherish the time you have with your family and I guarantee it will make your life much happier!
