If you are new to WhereDoesAllMyMoneyGo.com, every Friday I run a post called “A Lap Of The Blogs” which provides links to articles I found interesting and think that others may want to read for themselves. I also include some commentary on what’s going on in my personal life and a weekly “racing video” since my former life was in the auto-racing industry. The name “Lap of the Blogs” is in reference to “A Lap Of The Gods” which is an old video series which chronicled on-board footage of the world’s greatest F1 drivers lapping various racetracks from around the world.
For anyone who is interested, I’m hosting two wine and cheese seminars in Oakville titled “Increase your returns and lower your fees with Index Investing”. The two dates are September 25th and October 2nd and will be held at the Glen Abbey Golf Course. If you would like to attend, or know anyone who might want to (or should) learn about index investing please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
