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.

5 great benefits of having a credit card.

  I have shared my journey with credit card debt – and my debt is very small compared to the amounts that others share on financial blogs. My natural inclination is to be frugal with my money. But I became oblivious and allowed my money to manage me for a little while. Thankfully, I have become a stronger wealth manifestor as a result! Although credit cards can run amok if you don’t watch them (don’t you love the word amok?), they have a lot of good going for them: They are convenient. You don’t…
