Weekly Link Round-Up For August 13, 2010

It’s Friday the 13th!!!!!

My personal favorite article this week is “What Is Retirement?” by Get Rich Slowly. It introduces the concept of “semi-retirement” which is a more likely future for many (and a common state that many retirees find themselves in today.) Defining what you would like your retirement to look like is one of the first steps in planning it.
