Ah, can you feel that? The end of June is approaching, which means it's time for the summer weather pattern to descend on Portland. There are clear skies and plenty of sun sun sun in the forecast. Feels like the perfect time to play hooky, no?
I'm taking this week off to enjoy the sunshine and to prepare for my upcoming presentation at WDS.
Financial Freedom Workshop Next Week!
As I did in 2016, I'm co-hosting a workshop on Financial Freedom. This year, my co-host is the amazing Douglas Tsoi, founder of Portland Underground Graduate School. We'll host our three-hour session on money and meaning from nine to noon on Thursday, June 28th, in downtown Portland.
For more info (or to register), you should go here. (Please note: Although there's a nominal fee to attend this presentation, Douglas and I don't get paid a dime. This isn't a scammy, sales-y event. It's just two guys trying to share what they know about financial independence.)
Best Money Expert!
In other news, the folks at GoBankingRates have nominated me as a vote for me here. I'm nominated in the “Retirement Planning” category.
Questions and Suggestions
Finally, now's a great time for questions and suggestions. I intend to spend the next few weeks writing about banking and credit cards. Anything in particular you'd like me to cover? And what about once we're finished with that topic — what subjects would you like to see me dive into around here?
Any other feedback about the site or the email list? Now's the time to drop a line. Just leave a comment below.
Now it's time for me to take the dog for a long walk. I hope the weather is beautiful where you are, too. I'll see you next week.
