A Lap Of The Blogs

If you are new to WhereDoesAllMyMoneyGo.com you should know that most Fridays I run a post called “A Lap Of The Blogs” in which I link to some articles of interest I’ve read in the past week. I also include a weekly “racing video” because my former life was in the auto racing industry… Enjoy!

Personal Notes

I made it to the next round in Advisor.ca’s search for Canada’s Financial Visionaries. I’d love your support in the next round, as I honestly do have a vision of how the financial services needs to evolve for the better. Of course, if there are others you feel are more worthy, by all means vote for your top choice (you only get one vote in this round). You can click here for a small contest update (which has a link to the actual voting form). OR you can just click here to vote – and thank you!

Globe Columns

The main reason the blog was on the back burner for the last little while is that I started writing a column for the Globe and Mail. You can read all the columns HERE, and below are the ones that appeared this week.

Don’t get caught out by balance protection insurance

    Thanks for the mention, have a warm weekend.

    Thanks for the mention. That was a good ad. The only one I thought was better was the one where a vehicle got stolen multiple times in ever more elaborate sci-fi ways.

  • Canadian Capitalist

    Good to see you posting despite your crazy schedule Preet! Thanks for the mention!
