Finance Fox Weekend Recap – Hello 2013 & Money Talks!

money talks

Hello! Welcome back to another edition of Finance Fox’s weekend roundup, which also happens to be the first roundup on 2013! Even though this week has been short for many of us (one can only wish that work weeks start on Wednesdays), I hope that you had a good week, a Merry Christmas and that your New Year is off to a rocking start!

For me, this has been a fairly productive week. Aside from being incredibly busy at work, I’ve submitted my articles of incorporation to launch my media company business. Needless to say, I’m pretty stoked. Aside from all the work and business stuff, there’s was something missing….ohh the fact that I haven’t kicked a soccer ball in two weeks due to holiday closures. You know when you get used to something and enjoy it – you begin to look forward to it and are willing to do anything to incorporate into your busy schedule. What do you do as a physical activity? Will you be incorporating anything new 2013?
