“Renting is throwing your money away.”
“Buying ties you down and locks up money that could’ve been invested.”
“When you buy a home, pay it off as fast as possible.”
“If you do buy, don’t pay off your home early. It’s better to invest the money.”
These are just a few of the ideas floating around the web. It makes the choices so easy, doesn’t it?
These are difficult topics that require slightly complex (but not scary-complex) answers.
Let’s dive in to theses topics, and decide what’s best for you.
Happy Friday the 13th for all you horror fans out there!
It’s been a great week with the launch of MoneyMiniBlog 3.0 and my sabbatical concluding.
I’ve decided to start posting weekly roundups of the best money and productivity stuff I can find.
I’ve always promoted the idea of starting small when creating new habits.
We all know that we can’t start a new workout routine by running 10 miles a day. That’s obvious. But even if you aren’t starting that big, you may be starting too big.
It’s usually not starting way too big that messes us up, it starting just a little bigger than we should have. Just big enough to stop the habit after a few days, weeks or months.
This is where tiny habits come in.
Bj Fogg, PhD, has started a habit revolution with tiny habits. And people are accomplishing amazing things by implementing them.
I’m going to show you how they work and how you can start implementing tiny habits today. Right now, actually…
It’s about time! My sabbatical has finally come to a close, and I must admit that I’ve been getting anxious.
Anxious to talk to you guys! Anxious to publish articles.
It was a much needed break, but I’m glad to be back.
If you haven’t noticed, one of my main focuses was this re-design. I hope you like it!
I’m going to tell you about all the new stuff, and this article will also serve as a guide to help you better navigate this website to find what you’re looking for.
The moral of this infographic is this: don’t commit insurance fraud. Even when it’s not this extreme, you will still get caught.
It’s never a good idea to try to profit from “gaming” huge corporations.
Plus, it’s illegal.
So just for fun, here are the reason why you shouldn’t commit insurance fraud…
The idea of a weekly review was first made popular by David Allen.
He suggests that you cut out a block of time each week to review the previous week, and an additional block of time to plan the upcoming week.
I’ve learned a lot from his methods and I incorporate much of his teachings in my processes.
But the fact is, you don’t want a weekly review that takes several hours to complete. Because you won’t do it.
Here’s a quick weekly review that doesn’t take all day, and will save you countless hours throughout the week…
Retirement is always an interesting topic.
It may be so far in the future that you haven’t really thought about it, it could be closer than you care to admit, or you could technically be retired right now.
It doesn’t matter how old or young you are. The fact is, you need to start thinking about retirement now. Today.
You need to know your options. So I’m going to explain what they are and what to do.
Here’s what you need to know about retirement and planning for it…
You’ve heard both extremes: “debt is a tool” and “debt is pure evil”.
I’m not that extreme, but I do lean towards the second option.
It’s often believed that debt can be used as leverage, and that it can get you where you want to go faster than living debt-free. That can be true, but living with debt can also get you bankrupt faster than living without debt.
