I got engaged last year (Wedding will be July 1, 2012) and up until this point I had basically spent every penny I had ever earned on travel and having fun. But now at the of 29, getting married and thinking about having children in the next 2-3 years I start to view things differently, (still want to travel and have fun but am now responsible for others, a first.)
Nearly a year ago some one gave me a copy of Derek Fosters book stop working here's how you can. And I became inspired. Since then I have been reading as much as I can on the internet, like blogs, news and financial sites. Opened a questrade account (made a few nice gains and kept losses to a min) and watch as much financial news as possible. I am going to try to work my way threw the "eight with weight" book list thats posted on this forum. I am also starting to post now instead of just lurking all the time, and I have viewed the better part of the KhanAcadamy.org finance videos which are amazing.
But there is still such massive gaps in my financial knowledge. Really I am like a sponge though when I decide I want to know something it just consumes me and I just learn everything I can.
I adore my partner and I want to be able to give her everything she needs in this world. We have huge dreams in this life and I will do anything to accomplish them with hard work and determination.
Living beneath our means is second nature to us both, I have saved funds and traveled around the world multiple times now and needed to save considerable amounts of cash each time. We are now putting aside the majority of our joint earnings and investing.
Can anyone share with me any thing else I should be doing to help educate myself. Including perhaps courses, additional books, or skills I should be learning with trading/investing or steps I should be taking to help me on my journey??
