Investing Blog Roundup: Almost There…

Happy Friday, everyone. :)

This week I got back my scores on the Audit & Attestation and Business Environment & Concepts portions of the CPA exam. The result: two passing scores! Now all that’s left is Regulation (i.e., the part about taxation and business law), which I expect to take some time in August.

  1. That’s great, Mike. Congratulations! It’s all downhill from here.

  2. Thanks, PT. That’s the hope! :)

  3. Dear Mike,

    I hope you are doing well. You and your blog reader Larry made some helpful comments about my “safe savings rate” article which was published in the May
    2011 Journal of Financial Planning. I included you and Larry in the
    acknowledgments for you helpful analysis.

    In particular, Larry had asked how to apply the concept to someone in mid-career. I’ve just finished a new article with an answer about this.

    I’ve been working on a follow-up article about “safe savings rates” but for people already in mid-career. I try to address about what still may need to be done (in terms of saving and working) before mid-career individuals can be reasonable assured of having a sustainable retirement. I thought you might be interested, and if you have any suggestions, please let me know.

    On my blog, I summarize it, and I am also including a link for the full article.
