This week’s related reading is a bit more broad in spectrum. I have many goals and topics on my mind lately that are highly related to both finances and this life I choose to live. The highest priority topics in my research right now are home-ownership, professional development, retirement planning, and mental health/well-being. Expect to hear more about those in the near future. If there are any questions about them, please reach out and I can do my best to answer in the post. Of course, an article about the worlds most powerful rocket can sure be enjoyable too! As this post comes out, I’ll be out of commission for a medical procedure. Here’s to hoping I’ll be able to see the launch. Feel free to comment on any of the articles!

Are we really over-educated?: This article claims that many of us are over-educated for the work we perform. Maybe we just aren’t educated enough to create more engaging/intelligent work for ourselves and automate the mundane jobs. What are your thoughts?
