Where’s your money?

http://www.stealthywealth.co.za/2018/09/wheres-your-money.html
Stealthy Wealth wrote a really nice post about diversification and took a closer look at his own portfolio’s level of diversification and where exactly his portfolio is invested in.  Kinda ties in well with the post I wrote a while ago about diversification:  The DIY investor’s guide to diversification

Over at Tread Lightly Retire Early a nice post for people living together:

Creating Location Independence – Work From Anywhere

99to1percent.com wrote a really good article a while ago (back in February) about location independence, something that I struggle with quite a lot (since I have to commute a total of nearly 3 hours every day, while I should really be able to work from home – or anywhere else really – according to the kind of work I do):

Happy reading and happy investing!

    1. Yeah some weeks I’m just so busy I don’t get around to writing a new blog post. But I always read other blogs when I have a moment. So I thought why not share the good ones I came across (and at the same time help other bloggers to spread their content)? Win-win! 😎
