8 Random Facts About Armchair Fiduciary

Super Saver at My Wealth Builder has tagged me in a new blog project. This project calls for sharing 8 personal facts about myself, then tagging 8 other bloggers to do the same. Here are the rules , which were passed to me:

  • Each player must post these rules first.
  • Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
  • People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
  • At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
  • Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

So without further adieu, 8 random facts about Armchair Fiduciary:

  1. In addition to all things finance I like to run marathons (I have run 4 including Boston) and downhill ski.
  2. Despite writing a comprehensive guide to investing a 401k, I contribute exactly $0 to a 401k.
  3. The only reason I contribute $0 to my 401k is because my current employer doesn't offer one (otherwise I would max it out).
  4. I have 3 cats.
  5. My cats were cheap early on; $100 for two of them at the shelter and one of them my wife and I rescued from the street.
  6. One of my cats had a bad kidney and that got really expensive in a hurry. I need all my money saver tips to make up for that $4000 surgery.
  7. I still love my $4000 cat.
  8. I drive a used Subaru WRX. It has comprehensive insurance.

Now it's my turn to tag. I tag:

Boston Gal

Personal Finance Guru

Prince Muddy Paws

Cool Cat Teacher (cats are cool, teachers are cooler)

Tom Roper

The IvyGate Summer Editors (Yes, Ivy League kids are idiots too)

Greg Hill (when he starts skiing again)

Subaru Maniac
