Networking and the Modern World Networking is now an everyday part of life for billions. As I open my smartphone, many of the apps are dedicated to bringing people and technology together; the prevalence of this technology shows the extent to which the networking industry is growing.

In the modern world of computing, more is needed from candidates to demonstrate their ability and understanding of modern [...]

June 2017 Net Worth Update

By | 2017-06-07T11:06:16+00:00 June 1st, 2017|Personal Situation|1 Comment

My Gut Reaction to Net Worth Before Calculating Every month I have a feeling of how I did the previous month.  Some times I am way off and sometimes I am right on point.  I do not think this month is going to be a great month, in fact, I believe it is going to be one of my rare negative months.  I haven't had a negative month since November of 2016.  My lack of negative months have zero to do with my personal finance "prowess", but rather we are in the middle (or end) of a massive bull market and I [...]

Morgan's Guide to the Market for the 2nd Quarter 2017.  I couldn't believe some of the information he was sharing, I knew immediately that I had to take a look at the full report. Charts and Graphs from J.P. Morgan's Guide to the Market There is a lot more information than the selected charts below, however, these are the most interesting to me.   I was going to try and group them together to make a cohesive story line, but that would be a tremendous amount [...]

Steps on How to Port a Mortgage

Porting a mortgage is an option available to you when you are moving home. You can either apply for a new mortgage, or take your existing mortgage with you. The process of porting a mortgage differs from person-to-person, and it may not be the best decision for everyone. In theory at least, anyone can port their mortgage. In other words, you can transfer your existing mortgage to your new real estate. Sometimes, lenders make it difficult or impossible, to port your mortgage. You may ultimately start borrowing at uncompetitive rates if you decide to go down this route. A big part of [...]

How Much Does it Take to Destroy the Status Quo?

Been watching a great show recently called Genius which is about Albert Einstein's life starting from what seems like his teenage years up until his attempt to get to the United States before/during the rise of the Nazi Party.  The story is told in a nonlinear fashion so I am getting pieces all over a 30 year span.  I am sure the show is only going to get better and more detailed.  I am sure it is dramatized but there is one theme that keeps coming up over and over, how Einstein broke the status quo.  Einstein is in class getting shot [...]
