As part of doing digital minimalism, I am scanning written notes that is older than this blog.
Looking at my notes, I somehow miss the times I write (and doodle) on my notebook as a student.
I still like to take notes as a working adult; but this time, from books that I am passionate of such as personal finance.
The first personal finance book I read in Canada is The Lazy Investor by Derek Foster.
It is full of tips on how to invest for those living in Canada. As a resident, temporary foreign workers can start investing till they work their way up to citizenship; this is the path that I took.
So I decided to share my notes with you, to anyone who wants to get the gist of the book ,especially if you don’t have time to read the whole thing.
If I had known that I’ll be sharing my notes online, I would have made my writing more legible.
Don’t get me wrong, I like to share knowledge but my real handwriting is a challenging sight, not having a resemblance to calligraphy which I’m trying to learn.
I thought of doing the same thing as what Maria of Pinas for Good did. She wrote notes from the The Little Book of Economics.
So here I am paying it forward. May you learn a lot from this 16-page PDF.
I read the following books and have written notes which I’ll also scan (for future reference) like The Lazy Investor:
- Stop Working Too by Derek Foster
- Stop Over-Thinking Your Money by Preet Banerjee
- The 10 Essentials of Forex Trading by Jared Martinez
- Getting Started in Currency Trading by Michael Archer
- The Little Book of Currency Trading by Kathy Lien
- All About Forex Trading by John Jagerson and S. Wade Hansen
I’m not sure if I’ll share more scanned notes about investing and forex because my handwriting is awful. We’ll see how things will turn out.
Also I stopped writing notes on paper. Now that I have a blog, I share my thoughts and whatever I fancy here on my blog so make sure to subscribe if you want to know what I’m up to or ask me questions.
