Why we save (a kids perspective). My son bought this Lego set yesterday for his friend's b-day party this weekend.

He decides its so cool that he wants to keep it for himself so my wife says he can keep it if he pays her back (thinking that will deter him).

After some thought he calls her bluff and empties his piggy bank he's been filling up all summer. After helping him put together his plane I asked him "was it worth it"?

Without hesitation, with total conviction, he says "Yes! Dad, that is why we save".

Hopefully as he gets older he'll graduate from Legos to more practical things but when you're in 1st grade I guess Legos make the cut. Of course, now we have to go buy another present for his party tomorrow...

Tomorrow I'm doing a Self-Publishing Q&A google hangout in preparation for the upcoming FinCon panel. You're invited!

If you're thinking about or in the middle of self publishing a book then this Q&A is for you.  See you there!
Bring your questions about self publishing a book. 

FinCon is almost here and we're getting ready for our panel on publishing your own book. We want to know what questions you have about getting your book onto Amazon or other publishing platform.

I'll answer any questions I can on the Hangout and those I can't we'll address at the FinCon panel in October.

See you on Thursday, bring your questions!

happy friday all!

Kind of cool that my son will be getting the same Star Wars toy for Christmas this year that I unwrapped 30 years ago.
