I’m going to hold off on finishing my asset allocation series until after this weekend. I’ve discovered a new book that will greatly enhance my asset allocation knowledge. I’ve struggled recently to find time to work on my asset allocation as the bulls and blackhawks are both in the playoffs. I haven’t had enough free time to sleep as much as I need to, but it’s well worth it. Also, I had my house warming party last weekend, which was majorly time consuming. For now I will share with all of you a CNN application that measures your financial health after answering a few questions.
After entering your age, income, housing costs, debt, emergency savings, diversification, company stock, life insurance and retirement savings you’re provided with an overall grade on your financial health.
It never hurts to take a quick and dirty test of your financial health. I find this application to be very subjective. Everyone has different goals. Even though I was graded with an A, I don’t consider myself to have an A. I want to be retired early. I want to provide for my future kids. I want them to have the opportunities that I had. It all depends on what you want to achieve. Also, it’s important to never get complacent. Even because CNN gave me an A, that doesn’t mean I can stop saving and working hard to increase my income. You must never be satisfied if you want to meet your goals.
I’ve definitely lost a lot of respect for the Celtics. They battled so hard to win last year. This year they expect to get all of the calls. I’ve never seen such a big bunch of cry babies. Apparently Paul Pierce has never fouled anyone. He also gets fouled on every play. Is that why his nickname is the truth? Cause he’s always right? The only player on that team that I can root for from now on is Rondo. He plays with heart and energy. No matter what happens he picks himself up and heads back to play defense. Beyond that, this series has been amazing. Without KG, the Bulls are more talented, but the Celtics are more experienced. I hope it goes to a game 7, won by the Bulls of course.
