About a month ago I decided to start up an exclusive newsletter for Boomer & Echo subscribers.  This was in response to a few emails I received from readers asking how to start improving their finances.

So I put together a free step-by-step series about taking control of your finances.  This exclusive content will be sent out to subscribers twice a month.  You can sign-up for free updates here and join over 1,500 other subscribers.

Last week I had the pleasure of speaking with Kevin Press, who runs the Today’s Economy blog over at Brighter Life.  We talked about how a major health event can impact your financial planning.  Check out the interview here – Echo generation blogger.

This week on Moneyville I looked at why unlimited chequing accounts are so popular.  I also explained why tracking your expenses makes sense.
