This is the 100th post on Riscario Insider! That's nearly two years of writing, one article at a time.
Did you read the very first post: What's In A Name?
We've stayed close to the topic of helping Canadians learn about financial risks and how to reduce them. For variety, we've also looked at ways to improve ourselves --- which indirectly helps us quash our financial risks.
We're supposed to write about what we know. I intended to write to help typical Canadians: stagnant family incomes create major financial risks. But how? I primarily help the small sliver of the wealthy. They have different issues. I slowly shifted the focus to wealthy Canadians.
What If You're Not Among The Wealthiest?
Study well what the billionaire does. It may make you a millionaire.We can learn from those who have what we want. This gets us ready for when we join them, Wealth is more than money. The wealthy think differently. They act differently --- in ways that may not make sense to others.

Want an example? Most of us can use more life insurance and more investments. Street wisdom says buy cheap term insurance and invest separately. Instead, the wealthy pick permanent life insurance because melding protecting with investing releases many tax advantages and saves money. Chocolate and peanut butter are fine apart but wonderful together.
Thanks for reading. We're getting older and better. As always, your input is welcome and welcomed.
