Happy 2021! Welcome to the new smilingdad.blog.

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2021! From our family to yours, we wish you a happy, healthy, safe, and prosperous 2021 and beyond. For many people that suffered in 2020, we pray your suffering eases, as we work our way back to a calmer, better normal, where normal was never normal in the first place.

As part of the changes, we’ve gone ahead and upgraded our WordPress site to smilingdad.blog. We’ve undertaken a small experiment, to see if we can post content that people want to read, and if there is any interest in paying for content we may produce.

What’s in store for this blog in 2021? I’ll continue to write about finances and sustainability. It will be a busy year, as we have a new administration in the USA dedicated to reducing the impacts of climate change and promoting renewable energy. We may introduce YouTube videos, which I have been told is all the rage for the last two decades and I have just found out about. My goal is to get to 10,000 followers this year, and I have no idea if that is an easy or feasible goal. It’s a nice, round number, and we’ll see how that goes.

We’re dropping a link to our revised Retirement Income worksheet, which was mentioned in our previous article, 9 numbers determine when you can retire. Have a look at it and we would appreciate any comments to improve it. Feedback from partners has been positive. I recently added instructions, separated out the numbers for two people, and I hope to add charts soon. We’ll be introducing an Advanced Retirement Income worksheet, which will show you how to withdraw your money in the most tax-efficient way and make it last for your retirement.

Happy New Year!

My story is one of tragedy and redemption. We've made many mistakes along the way regarding our money. Our goal here is to show you how to take care of your money life long, and as much as we can, help the Earth along the way. I call it sustainable personal finance and ethical capitalism. Currently, I am a part time writer for Cleantechnica and part-time licensed financial professional, along with being a full-time dad.
