It’s time for another roundup of great articles from the previous week! But first I want to draw your attention to a very important cause. The other day I posted an article about a wonderful young lady who suffers from Juvenile Diabetes.
She is attempting to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and needs your help. You can read about her story and charitable efforts here (http://knsfinancial.com/help-find-a-cure-for-juvenile-diabetes/). Please share that article with as many people as you can and encourage them all to donate!
The article has been listed on several sites that can help to make more people aware of this cause. If you have accounts on these sites (or any other), please promote the article there. Here are a few links to make it easier:

Join the Discussion:
There are several articles that I have written in the past, and I would love to hear your feedback on them. Some of them have spurred lively discussions/debates, while others have not. So, I am asking for you to do me a favor and take a few minutes to read these articles and leave a comment (or respond to a previous comment):
Lebron James, Wealth, and Taxes – Lebron saved a ton of money in state income taxes by signing with Miami over New York or New Jersey! This led to a discussion on state taxes, using my home-state as a test case!
A special thanks to everyone who has helped to drop my Alexa ranking to 71,071 (as of Sunday 10/24/10)! Now my new goal is to get under 50k. This will take a lot of effort from me and help from all of you. Just install the Alexa toolbar and visit my site often (might as well make it your home page ), if you want to help!
Okay, on to my favorite articles of the past week:
