  • Ben Carlson – How Many Months’ Worth of Spending Do You Need in Your Emergency Fund? – “This is why rules of thumb in finance are basically impossible to apply to a wide swath of the population. Circumstances matter. How you approach the idea of a financial emergency in the first place matters. Your other financial backstops matter. And your preference for risk matters. And the idea of saving small amounts ahead of time for future costs is a great way to soften the blow when an actual financial emergency hits.”
  • Jeremy Walter – The Best Use of Money I’ve Ever Spent “What I really want to do is plant the seed for people (you) to try and make an extended trip like this happen – maybe especially those of us with younger kids. We as a family have memories that we’ll forever remember (if not, then we have approximately 1,000 photos to give reminders).
  • Justin Castelli: You Are Your Life’s Creative Director“It’s your vision—no one else’s. Yet, the constraints of society, family, friends, individuals we only know from social media, managers at work, and a number of other influences prevent you from taking your vision and making it your reality. The short-sightedness of others is holding YOU back from taking creative control over your life, pursuing your passions, living a life of purpose, and finding the happiness you seek.”
