- The Big Picture. Barry Ritholtz’s popular blog is fun and informative. He’s not afraid to write what he thinks and his lists of what he’s reading every day is a useful way to sort through the daily deluge of financial and economic information.
- Forex Factory. I scan the calendar to see the day’s global economic data announcements. Information is updated quickly and compared to expectations.
- American Association of Individual Investors. AAII is a non-profit association dedicated to educating individual investors. Helpful articles are found on the home page but membership is required for full access. Chapters host dinner meetings with speakers several times a year. Smaller interest groups get together to discuss investment topics informally.
- SCORE , a non-profit resource partner of the U.S. Small Business Administration, assists small business. Workshops, free mentoring by volunteers, and other information are provided. Many baby boomers are entrepreneurs. Many more will open businesses accomplish something they value, supplement retirement income, or to replace lost full-time employment.
