The NextGen Wealth Weekly Roundup September 27, 2019

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.

Our Kansas City Financial Planner Weekly Roundup

Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of the NextGen Wealth Weekly Roundup. Hope you’re having a great week! THE NEXTGEN WEALTH WEEKLY ROUNDUP 9 27 2019

It's definitely been a bit of a rocky road for stocks this week. However, today they were mostly up, in anticipation of the U.S. and China trade talks coming up, but it looks like those gains have slowly faded away. At least there has been an ease in the tension the last few weeks in the trade war...but that's probably just because things have kind of gone silent.
As for us consumers, we boosted our spending by .1% in August, which is the smallest gain made in six months. This is even after we have seen incomes rise. Hey, that means we're using that extra money save or pay off debt. Which, is good for us as consumers but not so much for the growth of the economy.
Personal income rates are up .4%, which is up from just a small gain in the previous month. We, as consumers, are currently the key driver of the economy, as businesses have cut their investment spending, so the slow increase in spending has made an impact. 
My two cents: keep saving and paying down debt!

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.

You Might be Paying More Than You Need to for Your Apple Music subscription - Time In the Market

I love Apple Music. I've had an Apple Music subscription for a while now. Apple has gotten my $9.99 plus tax every month. It's no wonder their services division has grown so much! It's a product that allows you to listen to all the music you want for one low price.

I recently attended Mark and Tamiel Kenney's Think Multifamily Fire Summit event in Dallas and was able to connect with some really great, forward thinking people.
