Good morning all – and happy Saturday!
We’ll keep it short and sweet this time around.
Yes, the markets are still down, and we are almost a year into this bear market.
We could well be almost through this particular drawdown – or have another year or two of pain to go.
But regardless of what Mr. Market does or says, it doesn’t change the long-term playbook for building wealth.
Maximize income. Minimize expenses. Invest the difference.
The rest will take care of itself. It always does.
Have a wonderful weekend all – and enjoy the link round-up below.

Highly paid jobs are great when it comes to making money, but they sure can be challenging.
After all, what you are essentially doing is carving out a place for yourself in a pack of aggressive, hungry dogs. Rinse and repeat, every single day.
