Important things to remember on your way to financial freedom.

I have one TV program addiction. It doesn’t have anything to do with housewives or forensic detectives, or otherworldly beings. Not that there is anything wrong with enjoying and being dedicated to watching those programs.  I’m just not much of a TV watcher – I pulled the plug on cable a long time ago. Except for CBS Sunday Morning. The news magazine show debuted in 1979, and I am pretty sure I watched the very first one. Yes, I am that old. Charles Kurault hosted the show, starting the first…

Don’t Go Sour on Saving – National Pickle Day

Pucker up! It’s National Pickle Day! That little fruit (yep, it is officially a fruit) that sits quietly in the jar in your refrigerator is a legend. Cleopatra allegedly crunched them. Amerigo Vespucci peddled them. Elvis fried them. A Dutchman named William Beukelz gets the credit for the name “pickle,” although it seems he pickled fish and not cucumbers.

Honoring veterans on your road to wealth.

  I can’t let today pass without saying thank you to those who have offered service, and call for peace on all levels. Our lives are beautiful and unpredictable, and we all have been touched by someone who has selflessly put himself or herself on the line to protect others. The best way we can honor them is by practicing peace. Many of our veterans come back after their tours of duty to find a mountain of debt at home. Although the post-9/11 GI Bill was passed in 2008, approximately 40%…

The 2 most important ways to create wealth

    You have the ability to gain wealth through willpower and wisdom, without spending money on education. Don’t misunderstand me – I am a believer in educating yourself through reading, learning from others and taking risks.  But you can usually group everything you will learn into two categories – earn more and spend less. EARN MORE You must make more than you spend – it is as simple as that. This is where I lost my way for a while, using my credit cards to buy things I needed…
