Eleven House: Lovely New Meters and Lights!

Eleven House moves forward! I have been neglecting you lately, readers! But I’m still here, juggling away. As you know, I have a childcare position before and after school. This week, school ended for the year, so I am focused on the summer’s activities with some upcoming family events, Eleven House and my own writing and voiceover business. Progress slowed down a bit on Eleven House – but we are still moving forward! The electrician came in to install new meters and panels, and the power company put in a new…

Do I need it, or do I want it? Wealth wisdom.

Do I need it, or do I want it? It is a good and necessary question to ask before buying anything. I would like to say that each time the answer is “I want it,” I turn away without purchasing it.

I had no idea my parents were a part of my financial future.

My dad left school when he was 16. It was 1935. His father was very ill and could no longer work. So Dad found work at a potato house, sewing that thick string into the tops of 5-lb. bags of potatoes. But when he heard that a local earthmoving company was hiring, he quickly put in an application. He was hired (the youngest ever to be hired there at the time) and began moving up in the company, while earning his high school diploma and two engineering degrees at night….

Taking “stock” of my money.

Last week, I  told you about my new RobinHood.com app. Well, I was approved for an account, and decided to put $100 of my Financial Freedom money in the account. A disclaimer – I know little to nothing about stocks, and what I am sharing here is my own story. I am offering NO stock advice! This is a personal experiment. No – it is an EXPERIENCE! We’re here to experience things, so we can learn and grow. I decided that the amount won’t break the Financial Freedom account, and if…
