10 Food Staples To Buy When You’re Broke : The Grocery Game Challenge 2016 #3 Aug 15-21

BUILD YOUR PANTRY LIKE YOU WOULD YOUR WARDROBE   Instead of saying, “I am broke” look at what you can do to change that and create an action plan. It may sound like boring financial advice but I can tell you that if you have no interest in making changes you will always have a negative mindset. Guess what? No one cares. That’s right although people may feel sorry for you and some people will help you out they are likely fighting their own battles, have fought them or just don’t want to deal with someone else’s problems. Where does that leave you? At the mercy of yourself because you CAN make changes if you want to. You CAN get out of debt if you want to.

If you want to be successful in your career you have to get rid of that negative mindset that so many people carry around with them. Remember that we all have problems. It’s how we choose to deal with these problems and whether we allow them to affect out life […]

Do They Offer Debt Management Degrees?

It’s not just Canada where most students are finding themselves under water before they even graduate,it’s happening all over the world. Read this guest post by my mate Michael Edmondstone in the UK who had the wake up call of a lifetime. Mr.CBB Guest Post By: Michael Edmondstone A degree, a wealth of memories and… thousands of pounds of debt; that’s what I left University with, and I’d wager that plenty of other students have the same outcome. With the job market tight and the realisation that I’d overspent during my three years, it was a scary time trying to understand how I’d be able to get out of this sticky patch. Sticky patch may well have been an underestimation considering the two credit cards I’d managed to max out – not to mention the tuition fees and student loans. Low interest was a great deceiver in more naïve times but they’d gone and I had to face up to £3,500 credit card debt I had. And, since I have, I thought I’d share it with everyone else. So, here it goes: Understand where you’re at – The first thing to do is to ensure that you know exactly what […]
