LinkStuff For a Hot Saturday, July 17 – Kids Driving Me Nuts Edition

by Mike Holman

I personally think kids are great and I enjoy spending time with mine. However, like everything – too much of a good thing isn’t so good. It can get tiresome after a while.

Judith Timson wrote about how parenting is no fun. She is reacting another post about parenting in New York Mag which outlines all the problems of being a parent.

Jennifer Senior wrote that NY Mag article about parenting called All Joy and No Fun. Some great quotes like “They’re a huge source of joy, but they turn every other source of joy to shit”. Couldn’t agree more.  🙂

Garth Turner wrote an absolutely hilarious post about property virgins. I don’t agree with much of what Garth has to say, but this post was spot on.

My Wife Quit Her Job is a site that I just started reading – it is fantastic for those of us who are into online entrepreneurship. The writer Steve is one smart guy and I love reading his posts.   This post was just excellent: Starting A Business: Convincing Yourself To Take Action

Canadian Tax Resource is starting a new tax advisory service. I’m interested in the question of whether or not to incorporate.

Thanks for the mention! My kids drive me nuts, because I am haemoraging (sp?) money right now because of them….

Thanks for the mention. From a purely tax & finance point of view, incorporation may make sense if you plan on holding the net income in the business or paying it out to a lower tax bracket family member.

Contact me and we can talk about it.

I know some bloggers who have incorporated their blogs. One benefit, as I understand, is protection against being sued for something published in the blog.
