Here is an e-book based on a (nearly) unabridged collection of 20 posts written earlier. I have not bothered to connect the chapters. I hope that will not spoil your experience too much. Perhaps only a reader who is used to my style and intent might find this collection useful.
This is an experiment. Please let me know if it is a good idea to compile past posts as an e-book.
After reading well-spun yarn like ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’, many start talking about the importance of financial independence and passive income. There is no free lunch in the universe and there is no such thing called ‘passive’ income. A look at some well-known passive income ‘streams’ and what it takes to make them count.
Income from rental property
If you are earning rental income from ancestral property which you naturally inherited (without litigation etc.) then it is sheer luck. It is perhaps passive, but it unplanned. So does not count.
A look at “How do I reduce clutter in my mutual fund portfolio so that it can tracked and reviewed easily?”. Typically mutual fund investors with few to several years of experience are interested in this exercise.
The first step is to recognise clutter. I hold 8 funds. If I posted just that information at AIFW and ask, ‘is it too many?’, there would at least be a few answers which go, ‘yes’. Someone might even offer me advice on the ideal number of funds a folio should have.
