The Simple Dollar Morning Roundup: Stock Market Rebound Edition

Two days ago, I bought in big on the S&P 500 because of the recent market downturn. Yesterday, the S&P 500 recovered a big chunk of that loss, going up 1.5%. Because I bought in when I did, all of my losses over the painful last week have been erased. Anyway, on with some personal finance posts.

    I’m curious about your take for passion at work. I personally agree with Bill. Heck my company actually has passion as one of its “pillars”, which I find absurd personally.

    The reason? There are many other things I have passion about. My wife for primarily. Cooking, hiking, traveling as well. What my job does is fund my habits. I wonder about the correlation to job passion and how one defines themselves.
