Free Canadian Financial Summit tickets, Getting Retirement Ready, Living off Dividends and More!


RBC InvestEase contacted me to help spread the word on a new educational initiative that they started to help beginner investors.  As they have launched a very competitive robo-advisory service that I positively reviewed, they are building an educational database of articles to help with your investing journey.

Check out RBC InvestEase articles on Investing Topics and Trends.

As I mentioned in my most recent Financial Freedom post, I created a video presentation on my Financial Freedom/Dividend Journey that is being shown in the Canadian Financial Summit.  You can view the video (and others from Canadian financial experts) for FREE during the first 48 hours after release.  Sign up for the Canadian Financial Summit for FREE here.

My Own Advisor has written another great post, this time on 10 ways to get retirement ready.  Some of the top 3: he favours stocks over bonds; embraces diversification; and will consider a die-broke plan.  Mark will have a pretty high income during retirement if he plans on dying broke!

Cut the Crap Investing, who also writes for Seeking Alpha, has an article about living off dividends to create retirement income.  He also talks about his own investment strategy. As I’ve mentioned before, I take a hybrid approach to investing.  Dividend stocks for Canadian exposure and index ETFs for the rest (I do have some US dividend stocks in my RRSP).  

Eat Sleep Breathe FI has provided another financial independence update, this time, with a new addition to the family – a dog!  I haven’t written about this yet, but earlier this year, we also got a dog.  Perhaps a topic for a future post.

Gen Y Money has a great article about one of my nightmares – over contributing to a TFSA!  Fortunately, she gets into the details of how she fixed it!

Boomer and Echo has some money tips for procrastinators (like me!) in his article – The Procrastinators Guide to Saving Money.

Mike from The Dividend Guy Blog has a fantastic article about why he always invests his cash in lump sum rather than dollar-cost averaging.  It has been proven that lump sum investing results in higher returns over the long term, a lesson that I still need to learn!
