A Money Coach in Canada

It’s been too long since I’ve given any link love!

Here are some blogs I’ve discovered over the past while that have interesting/useful/fun stuff to say about money-releated things.

1. 624blog by Tim Ayres in Sooke, B.C.   is really funny, featuring “MLS horrible picture of the day” – sort of a “what not to do” for people uploading pictures of their homes for sale.

2. When clients want to start learning how to make their own investment choices (and note!  again, I don’t provide financial planning to stock suggestions.  I *do* help people get informed though) I always recommend starting to flip through financial pages.  I suggest starting by reading headlines, and if an article grabs your attention, reading it.  CBC’s “money” section is worth reviewing at least weekly, cuppa coffee in hand.

3. Free from Broke is all about how one married guy in NYC is doing exactly that, while living on one income.  In NYC.  No kidding.

4.  Jewelry lovers will want to visit the sleeping poet’s blog.  An English/German Lit grad from U of T, she does a gorgeous job of combing blogging with selling her jewelry.  I’m going to buy  these earrings, except in blue.

5.  And for my fellow change-the-world and/or world traveler types, you may enjoy Bill Zimmerman’s blog (no, not a relation to our knowledge).  He is a social entrepreneur in Cameroon.  Here’s a post about renewable energy in Cameroon.

  1. Hi Nancy,

    Thanks for the link-love. Besides the horrible MLS photos, 642Blog.ca also features real estate and local content for Sooke, Victoria and Vancouver Island, British Columbia. I focus on local events, news, businesses, and of course real estate. I post daily and I love comments.

    Thanks again,

  2. Thanks so much for the mention! It’s always great to see who’s reading.

    And I love how you mention it too – “In NYC. No kidding.” I always wonder how different it is in NYC, or any major city, compared to the rest of the country (or countries).
