SMU Volleyball GamesWhen I was a kid all I wanted was a Sega Genesis!  In my child world it was the best gaming system ever created, and it will be the greatest ever created, at the time.  It was very expensive compared to our old NES system, and we had like, 25 games for our NES.  My parents thought it would be better to just play what you have.  I ...

I have been to a lot of different churches over the years, and I always found the churches that preached about money to be the most interesting.  I’m a church hopper by birth and today I fall under the title of “Christian” but I attend an LDS church on most Sundays.  I started life as a Roman Catholic, then a Bible Church, then Southern Baptist, then non denominational Christian, then ...

Free Dumpster Landscaping and Drainage Rocks!Ok I just wanted to get a few cheapskate things off my chest before Fincon17, by admitting to a few of the following things that I do or have done more than once in my life.  I’m not bragging, but confessing, and maybe I will stop these one day, or maybe I will find new ones to replace my old ones.  Anyways… I go to frozen ...

Our land was a mess!Ok, so the story is just like anyone else who is trying to live the American Dream, but mine took a turn for the environmental.  I just bought my first house nine years ago, and I moved into my 1,490 square foot home, coming from a 650 square foot apartment.  My rent was $650 a month and my new mortgage was $605 a month, so I ...

That was 15 years ago this May!!“The Millionaire Next Door”changed my life in many ways in the year 2000.  I was a freshman in college, and in my  business management class we had an unorthodox professor who taught for $1 a year salary.  He made his millions buying stock in companies secretly, and then holding them ransom, or breaking them apart and selling them.  You see the same thing in ...

Ok, so I have been playing on Coinbase with bitcoins, and I can now see after a few months why it is so fun and exciting.  I put in $100 and now I got $150 almost over night, and it is constantly trading 24/7.  I’m not sure what bitcoin is exactly (that’s for someone else to write), but I can see how it plays into the future with all our ...

So you haven’t got your investing life together just yet for one reason or another.  Maybe you were never taught to invest, and you were told to only save your money.  Maybe you watched someone loose a ton of money in the market or in the 2008 crash.  Maybe you don’t know where to start or you are just worried you’ll mess up. Well…the only way to mess up is to ...
