Optimizing my Portfolio for Maximum Returns

When I first started investing in my early twenties, I left the selection of investment vehicles up to my investment advisor.  I was under the impression that they would make decisions that would help me to get good returns on my investments and really just help me to retire early.

Enjoying my New VPN Service

For years I had been using one VPN service, but a few months ago, they quit offering their services.  Unfortunately for me, this meant that I couldn’t watch my favorite programs online and on Netflix anymore.  Frustrated, I knew that I needed to find a new service that would give me the same access I …

Broadening my Horizons

One of the things that I learned growing up was that everyone is different.  We all have different beliefs, customs, and upbringings and throughout the years I have made an effort to try and learn about as many of these things that I can.  In fact, I have put myself in situations that made me …

Sharing My Shopping Experiences
