Cheesy Finance: This is your final call for Leuven! If you still want to attend the next BENL FIRE meetup, let us know as soon as possible. We are currently having about 25-30 people confirmed for each day, so there are tons of people to chat with! No investing/frugal experience required, just the right attitude 😉
Cheesy Finance: As noted in a post last year, we dipped our toes into the world of cryptocurrencies. Why on earth did we do that? Perhaps a slight case of fear of missing out (FOMO), but also the belief that the technology (and perhaps some of the coins) will survive (and thrive?). It was also a lot of fun with the massive volatility. Where are we today?
The Road to One Million: Last year’s Battle of Dividend Stocks was a bit forgotten around June, but I was interested to see how did the two portfolios perform over the year.

Pollies Dividend: In August of 2015 I started this series about the wonderful world of investing. By writing these blog posts I try to educate my kids. And I hope my kids at the age of say 18, have all the financial knowledge I’m having right now. This would be a huge advantage for them!
