Crazy times would be the easiest way for me to define how my life has currently unfolding. Between prepping to move out west and arranging my entire life into a handful of boxes in order to best begin my new minimalist and/or crazed hippie lifestyle change, lets just say that shit is changing, and its changing fast.
In Lou of all this controlled insanity, one of the big areas of my life that has grown in interest (and importance) to myself is that of personal finance. I know that there are a million and one finance blogs on the Internet, and to be totally honest they all pretty much point to the exact same style of advice with only minor discrepancies. Since you are all more than capable of typing “personal finance blog” into google and walking into a cluster fuck of good resources, I will not bore you with the semantics of my financial endeavours. Instead I will offer the last route and direct you to some of my favorite quotes on finance by some of the most well respected gurus in the financial industry.

A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business.
Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.
If you’re not serving the customer, you’d better be serving someone who is.
I think that our fundamental belief is that for us growth is a way of life and we have to grow at all times.
Always think outside the box and embrace opportunities that appear, wherever they might be.
