On occasion it is best to ignore the details knowing that you have already handled them. Sometimes you need to enjoy the big picture and how the machine is functioning at a higher level.  ...

I think of work for myself a lot like an investment.  Suppose for a second that you decide to invest $6,000 in the stock market, and you spend 2 hours a week watching stocks and making adjustments.  If you perform in line with economic averages today, you might end up with as much as $7,200 in a year (that's a 20% return - which is killer). Now suppose your name is ...

I know it must seem like all of us financial guys are a broken record. Always preaching about some nonsense and invoking your guilt receptors nonstop. After reading our articles you probably get that same feeling of when you desperately needed to move out of your parents' house at the ripe age of 35. And for that I sincerely apologize son. Here are the broken record type things you will ...

I got a call on Tuesday at about 430am. My drummer was quick to inform me that there was a fire burning (!!!) within about 5 miles of my house. I really appreciated that phone call. I proceeded to call my brother and spread the word and interestingly enough my mom didn't pick up her phone but I knew she was sleeping and likely safe since she was farther away ...

So here I am minding my own business when up strolls an awesome weekend. I take it in stride and say to myself "holy crap what a great few days everything just seemed to go so damn well." I didn't lose an ounce of muscle mass or strength after dancing for ~24 hours in a 3 day span and eating pretty much whatever I could find during that time. It ...

Alright so I wrote How much does it cost to get shredded? on 8/9/15 where I predicted I would be at 10% body fat later this month. Well guess what, I failed to meet that goal. First and foremost I would like to stress that the reason I didn't get there wasn't because I didn't have the willpower or drive or any of that nonsense, It was because of reasons. Tangible ...

Ok world. In case you didn't notice, the tax code might actually be *gasp* changing sometime and the government could be the one implementing it. I say could because the government will absolutely drag their feet on pretty much anything they are going to try and make a huge deal out of it and then in the end they might not do anything anyways. This process is even applicable to simplification ...

There are subtleties to purchasing real estate, and obtaining a mortgage, that I was blissfully unaware of.  Some of these subtleties put a monkey wrench in immediate plans I had to procure another house and rental property.  Namely, in what I imagine is an effort to reduce money laundering, all of the income on your bank statement has to be traceable for 60 days prior to approval.  This translates to ...
