I’m at the beach for the second time this month. It’s a different feeling than I’m used to. Typically, our bodies and minds are in desperate need of rest by the time vacation rolls around but not this time. I’m hoping my already-rejuvenated body is more productive this trip than I was 2 weeks ago. We shall see.
There were several blogs that caught my attention last week but there were two that stood out more than others. The first was from Jason at Live Real Now. He told us How To Complain. I was expecting to be annoyed because I greatly dislike complainers so a blog post advising how-to didn’t sound like something I would like. But Jason tells us How To Complain effectively.
I love it because I have been in a few positions where people complain directly to me. The typical complaint goes a little like this:
“I had a fee on my account, can you reverse it?”
“Oh, well I’ve been in the hospital and my aunt died and so did three other people I know.”
“I’m really sorry but I don’t see the relevance.”
Anywho – a little rant there.
The other article that stood out this week was from Sam at Financial Samurai. Sam has been grinding out some incredible articles over the past 6 months. This week he pointed out that The Maximum Mortgage Tax Deduction Depends On Income. I won’t even try to summarize but he mentions that “homeownership is worth more to higher income earners.”
