Welcome to the October 29, 2007 edition of festival of under 30 finances.
wilson ng presents The Yin and Yang - It Goes Both Ways posted at Reflections of a BizDrivenLife, saying, "I once joked with a banker that he has the best business in the world -- even when he is asleep, his money is creating more money as interest is compounded upon interest. That is great if you are the creditor. But it works both ways - if you are a debtor, your interest is also being computed whether business is moving or not.
We want to be entrepreneurs because once you have a business, your business can be a resource which keeps earning for you. However, until that is established, a business can also be pulling your money in.
Understanding that an advantage can be a disadvantage in other situations is one of the things to understand about money and finance."
karyn presents Stop Saving for College! posted at Finance 123, saying, "Many parents today start saving for college as soon as their child is born. While it may not be as much fun, you should put college savings on hold for as long as it takes to build up a suitable nest egg for your own future."
edithyeung presents The Money Series – Books that You Just Cannot Miss posted at Edith Yeung.Com: Dream. Think. Act..
Chris presents 3 Secrets to Early Retirement (and Life like a Nomad forever) posted at nomad4ever.
Roshawn Watson presents Creating Phenomenal Wealth Over Time posted at Watson Inc, saying, "The long-term view of wealth is not congruent with many of our current societies’ values. We live in a fast-food culture where everything must be instantaneous. This would explain the preponderance of get-rich quick programs, and most are terrible. Meaningful change often necessitates a significant time-investment."
Roshawn Watson presents Forget Looking Rich...BE Rich! posted at Watson Inc, saying, "What is the good life to you? Like many, I used to imagine Barbie and Ken with the big home, matching BMWs, vacation home(s), and luxurious yacht. I assumed that Barbie and Ken were the very portrait of success. However, a closer look revealed that my vision was distorted. Barbie and Ken were BROKE! Forget looking rich, let's be rich instead."

Investment Advice From a Billionaire. posted at Surfer Sam and Friends, saying, "Warren Buffett, billionaire investor, businessperson and philanthropist, is often called the "Sage of Omaha" or the "Oracle of Omaha."

Larry Russell presents Diversify To Avoid Investment Fraud posted at THE SKILLED INVESTOR Blog, saying, "Stories about investment fraud often seem to include the phrase "his or her life savings." There should never be a moment during your lifetime when your life savings are not heavily diversified across many investment vehicles and firms."
