Personal Finance Week in Review for August 26

by Sean Bryant on August 26, 2012

Just when I thought fall might be here after a few 70 and 80 degree days it’s going to be right back up in the 90’s this upcoming week in Denver. I guess summer is here for a little while longer.

Today is the final day of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge and my wife and I are going to walk downtown to watch them. These guys are the worlds best cyclists and they are absolutely amazing. Yesterday I was watching the coverage on TV and on flat surfaces they were averaging at speeds of over 40 MPH. The most impressive stat was that their heart rates are only getting up to around 130 beats per minute.

Anyone doing anything fun this weekend?

Now it’s on to my favorite personal finance articles from the past week.  If you want to see yourself on this list all you have to do is add me to your round-ups. 🙂

I didn’t know you were from Denver, Sean. Does this mean you’ll definitely be going to Fincon? See you there! Jefferson’s on baby duty. Thanks for linking his post!

Sean @ One Smart Dollar August 27, 2012 at 7:24 am

Yep I will definitely be at FinCon12. Can’t wait to meet all you guys.

Thanks for mentioning us! I believe if everyone truly understood compounding interest they’d start saving immediately.

Sean @ One Smart Dollar August 27, 2012 at 7:24 am

compounding interest is huge and not enough people understand the importance of it

I didn’t do anything fun at all! I’m pretty lame I think compared to most people. My wife worked 24 hours this weekend so I just took care of the house and wrote a few blog posts.

Thanks for the love Sean!
I hope you had a great weekend!
