If you are new to WhereDoesAllMyMoneyGo.com, every Friday I run a post called “A Lap Of The Blogs” which provides links to articles I found interesting and think that others may want to read for themselves. I also sometimes include some commentary on what’s going on in my personal life and a weekly “racing video” since my former life was in the auto-racing industry. The name “Lap of the Blogs” is in reference to “A Lap Of The Gods” which is an old video series which chronicled on-board footage of the world’s greatest F1 drivers lapping various racetracks from around the world. NOTE: you have to visit the actual website to see the embedded video – it may not appear in your email. Just click on the title of the email to see it…
I made a 24 hour commando-mission to Atlanta last weekend and the result is that I will be co-authoring a new book which we hope to have published in May. I’ll fill you in on details as we near the end of the project, but I think I will have another book in me for 2010 or early 2011 as well which will be focused on sharing some horror stories with the hopes of helping figure out what NOT to do when it comes to managing personal finances – that was inspired by Larry MacDonald – who writes a blog here.
