Millionaire Teacher will kick off with a meeting at the Miller Branch of the Howard County Library System on Tuesday, 9/24/2013 at 7 p.m. You don't have to come to the meeting to participate. All you have to do is read one chapter per week and check into the blog.
Unlike decades past, today we are responsible for managing our own retirement. But, we haven't
been given the basics on how to proceed. We wonder if we're saving
enough, do we need an advisor, which funds should we invest in, should we take the investment advice of our stock broker brother-in-law, and countless other issues.
Andrew, and many others, argue that these basics of financial literacy should be taught in school.
Please pass this on to anyone you think might be interested. As you can see from the syllabus on the blog, we'll cover many essential topics--such as how to avoid excessive fees in building a retirement portfolio, how to get time on your side in the investment process, how to avoid the negative impact of emotions on your investment strategy, and even how to construct a portfolio conducive to your risk tolerance. The next time you sit in a human resources meeting confronted with making a choice among numerous funds, you'll know exactly how to proceed.
