VASoD2.jpgMachoSpouse.com has been added to the Veteran's Advantage “Sites of Distinction” honor roll!

A Site of Distinction is awarded after a special Veteran's Advantage review of excellence in content and design and a focus on the respect, recognition, and rewards of US Veterans, active duty military, and their families. Some of the more recognizable members of this honor roll are the Fisher House, USO, American Red Cross, and Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS).  It's humbling to be on this list.


So, what is Veteran's Advantage?  They are a national program that VetsAdv logo.jpgpartners with corporations who want to honor and thank all who serve. These partner companies show appreciation by providing preferred pricing on their goods and services everyday. You may have heard of some these companies: United, Foot Locker, Dell, Amtrack, Wendy's, Avis, Apple, Ford, HBO, Tmobile, and on and on and on. Yes, there is a fee, but they offer a free 30 day trial and their one-year family plans are only $29.97. They sent us a card last month and we're currently testing, we will report back as soon as we get enough data to write a solid review. However, at first glance, this looks like a pretty good deal. If you don't want to wait for our review, you can research these guys yourself at: VeteransAdvantage.com.

Why Invest

vid_whyinvest.jpgOK, so you've taken the advice from our last video, "Before We Invest," and built-up a cash savings account.  Great.  But now that money is looking pretty good in savings, why risk any of it playing the stock market?  Having something is better than having nothing...right?  When it comes to planning for retirement, not exactly.  In this video, Scott and JJ (Certified Financial Planners with USAA) share some great insight on why it's important to start an investment account, what we should consider before beginning, and why it's not a good idea to simply start throwing money at random stocks.

Macho Money Investing 101 is a video series based on the fundamentals of investing. These videos will discuss many different types of investment accounts, some basic investment philosophies, and offer advice on how to find the right financial planner to fit your needs.

Advice for the New 'Mr. Mom'

Winegar_2.jpgFor guys, staying at home with the kids can be unchartered territory. I think every stay at home dad approaches his role differently, and he conducts a lot of discovery learning to figure out what works best for him and his family. For this reason, I comprised a list of key points to advise fathers who are stepping into the role of "Mr. Mom." Although every family is different, I have to imagine seasoned stay at home dads will find my list relevant and in the ballpark of what to expect. If someone had given me a list like this nine years ago, it would have been helpful. Feel free to share your experiences and add some points that I didn't include to this discussion:
