Book Reviews - October

October turned out to be a both a pretty good month for completing books, but also a bit of a bummer for various reasons. I didn't make my goal of completing 4 books but I came pretty close. On top of that I definitely enjoyed the books I did finish …

Every Company Should Have a 401(k)

I've been searching for a job for a while now and there's one benefit that is constantly getting overlooked and that's a 401(k). In the past setting up, managing, and running a 401k was difficult or you had to bring in some big bank to handle it for you …

I only finished two books in May due to being busy in my personal life, but am satisfied with what I read. Hopefully June will be more productive as I have a few shorter books in my queue, but there's also a few longer ones. I also need to make …
