Boomer & Echo Review: When is YOUR Findependence Day?

I was a bit slow to pick up on a nice review of the book by the Boomer & Echo blog the other day. You can read it here as well as a score of comments from others who have read the book, most of them fairly positive. “Wealthy Barber on speed!”

Speaking of Findependence Day, I’ve decided to raise my own personal FD from the previous age 62 to age 64. I’ll explain why in another blog but it has nothing to do with the government’s trial balloon to raise the OAS eligibility age gradually from 65 to 67.

Speaking of government, today it was announced that the federal budget will come down March 29th.

Millionaire Teacher’s Andrew Hallam reviews Findependence Day

Andrew Hallam, author of Millionaire Teacher, has just reviewed Findependence Day on his blog.

The Wealthy Boomer blog had reviewed Millionaire Teacher a few months back.
