In this section you will find my absolute favorite websites that have taught me some awesome ideas, concepts, and perspectives on finance, wealth, and life. Thank you to all of those behind the sites for teaching, inspiring, and motivating me.
403(b)wise was launched in March 2000 by two educators who were fed up with the lack of objective 403(b) information available to participants. I remember years ago when I began my financial freedom quest visiting their site to learn as much as I could. What I learned and saw (thanks to their forum board) made me take matters into my own hands when it came to my 403b and IRA's.
Minafi was created by a guy with an amazing name....Adam! His website and mission is phenomenal and truly inspiring. His organization, his self-created resources, and the educational layout on his website is amazingly honest and beautifully simplistic. In a financial world often times riddled with with confusion, manipulation, and distrust, Minafi is transparent, vibrant, and powerful.
I stumbled across this simplistic, yet powerful website. It almost seemed like a hidden diamond in the rough when it came to investing. The historical return tables on stocks, bonds, and countries provide so much meaningful and historical data to digest and reflect upon. The chart below is a small glimpse into some of the solid tools you will find. Lastly, his book notes section makes you feel like you are in a major university lecture and someone else took notes for you while you played on your phone. Overall, I am in awe of his collection and distribution of past, present, and future investing knowledge.
Financial Samurai was one of the very first websites I encountered when the path of financial freedom became a realistic concept in my life. I love his transparency, the organizational layout, and the thought-provoking articles. Enter the dragon and learn to become your own financial samurai!
