Sunday Round-Up for March 13, 2011

Sunday Round-Up for March 13, 2011

Financial planning, as you all know quite well, is a life-long process.  From the minute we decide to buy that very first pack of gum or save the money to go towards something bigger and shinier down the road, we embark on the financial planning journey.  Even if we don’t write down an official plan, we’re making choices that will influence our financial future.

No matter where you come from or how much you make, the key factor we all share is the need to learn.  I hope that you all walk away with a little bit of new knowledge after reading the posts on MomVesting.  I know I do—even if it’s only a new perspective that I took away from it. 

That’s what I like most about reading other people’s blogs.  Everyone in the blogosphere comes from such varying backgrounds.  For something that has its roots based in math, it never ceases to amaze me how subjective such objective characteristics become.  We all quantify and qualify back and forth constantly.  I just love it!

Here are some of my favorite posts from this week:
