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!
Wow, lots to talk about this week before the links. I was invited to be a guest on “Guy Talk” on Newstalk 1010 last Sunday night at 9pm to talk about money issues. I’m pleased to announce that it looks like I will be back every 6 weeks. This is broadcast in Toronto, but with this new fangled internetto you can listen live from anywhere in the world. I will try to get podcasts of the show and host them here as well.
The W Network has started the final rounds of the 2010 W Expert Search (this is the thing I won 2009 to get a TV development deal with W). The format is a bit different this year as they are taking the top 10 and eliminating 4 on “webisodes” short episodes that are shown on their website only. The top 6 will compete in 3 x 1 hour long TV shows in prime time in August of this year. Click here for the microsite.
For those that don’t know, WhereDoesAllMyMoneygo.com has it’s own app on the iTunes store – click here for more information (it’s free!).
