Financial Samurai Guest Posts For Wise Bread!

My Victory Sign

One of the main reasons why I returned my Macbook was because I failed to get published on Wise Bread before my return policy ran out.  I figured why not have this goal in order to justify spending such a large some of money?  After all, a writer needs his tools!  Well, I’m excited to announce that my guest article on Wise Bread is now live!  Better late than never.

Please enjoy reading: “Knowing When To Walk Away – Financial Planning For An Unknown Ending”

A snippet: “People have a notion that they must amass a certain amount of money, no matter how long it takes, before they can retire. But what if it took you 40 years of work to reach $1 million, and the very next year you died?”

A special thanks to Senior Writer Linsey Knerl at Wise Bread for accepting my guest post submission and taking the time to edit.  Linsey was always so responsive, even in the wee hours of night when I was pounding away and asking her questions.  Thanks for the support Linsey.  You rock!

Please follow me and Oprah over at Twitter @FinancialSamurai.  It’s getting addicting!

Sam focuses on helping readers build more income in real estate, investing, entrepreneurship, and alternative investments in order to achieve financial independence sooner, rather than later.

    NICE post! Gets me to thinking – save vs. live – all over again.
    I like my job a LOT though, at the moment. Is that going to continue for 23 more years? I can guess it is not. My father is cashing in his chips and I’m quite jealous, though I like what I do.

    pssst – consider a freedom fund app for facebook. It could really take off!

    @Geek Thnx! That’s awesome you love your job so much. Seriously, you are in a very envious position. I do like my job a lot, but i’m not sure I LOVE my job. What do you do btw?

    Freedom fund app for Facebook sounds like a good idea…. but I wouldn’t know where to start! Hence, whoever executes the idea, make sure to credit FS here! :)

    An excellent, thought-provoking piece indeed. And congratulations for getting accepted on WB as well! Perfect combination for that article I think.

    Robert Sloan of S3 partners, a major hedge fund consultancy, has had major success in investing his clients money, saving his clients for the current financial morass, as well as making money for his clients. See the proof below:

    For some time, Robert Sloan and S3 Partners, which works on an advisory basis for hedge fund clients on their interactions with prime brokers, financing counterparties, funding programs and other financing, has been warning clients about the importance of monitoring the risk associated with their counterparties. In the months leading up to this weekend they have also counseled the funds they work with to move $25 billion out of Bear Stearns accounts. In a white paper released just last week Robert Sloan further cautioned “Hedge fund managers should pay close attention to the collateral rights and obligations that they have with their financing counterparts… we believe that prudent hedge fund managers should put a robust process in place to address counterparty credit issues.”

    This track record is too excellent to ignore. I would suggest you take a look at whats going on with Robert Sloan and S3 partners; It might save and or make you a lot of money.
