Nine Millionaires

by Luke Landes

I believe that this article from MSN Money is better than most of CNN Money‘s “Millionaire in the Making” stories. This article profiles nine individuals and the stories behind their first million dollars. Only one of them has anything to do with real estate; they are mostly stories of taking a chance with an idea ... Continue reading this article…

Join the Army, Get Rich

by Luke Landes

Fear of a Housing Bubble?

by Luke Landes

I always like articles about the housing bubble. Some people believe a crash is inevitable and some people think the economy can stave it off.

An article by Dayana Yochim at The Motley Fool gives the reader license to invest in the market while in debt — as long as the debt is good debt and not bad. Even if the debt is bad debt (credit cards), she suggests investing what you can while keeping to a plan to get ... Continue reading this article…

Great Interview Advice

This article by Sarah Max (yet another at CNN Money) is probably the best I’ve read on the topic of techniques for the job interviewee. First of all, after reading the article, I now know that just about everything I do in an interview is wrong. Human resources is absolutely the last place you want ... Continue reading this article…

A Better ING Direct Deal

I didn’t realize this deal at ING Direct was still active. I was looking through my archives and I found my post from September 9, 2003.
