Diamonds in the Rough Roundup 12/12/14

Has anybody else been listening to the Serial podcast?  I finally gave into the hype a few days ago and it’s awesome.  What’s even more interesting for me is that the convicted murderer is my age, ethnicity and just lived a few miles from where I live.  It’s pretty interesting stuff I hope they do it for other cases.  Here’s what I’ve been reading in between Serial:

My First Investment Dollar by Fit is the New Poor:  Very easy to read and insightful look at using Lending Club.

Bringing Positivity to Retirement Savings by Stefanie O’Connell:  Many people have very little saved for retirement, and that seems to be increasing as time goes on.  A re-framing of traditional retirement might be in order.

3 Financial Things to Do before the End of the Year by Eyes on the Dollar:  2015 is just around the corner and there is no better time for a fresh financial start.  I plan to use 2015 as the year to simplify my financial life by consolidating some of my accounts and having a solid cash back credit card to fall back on.

An Interview with a Lyft and Uber Driver by making Sense of Cents:  This is an informative interview about being a driver for Uber or Lyft.
