How to become Financially Free in a How To World : March Net Worth Update (+1.46%)

HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN 10 DAYS…   Remember that movie? Even the relationship industry has poured their hearts out to those in need of motivation for years and making a mint from it. Why? The words How and To can be compared to gold because finding the answers to something you need or want is a relief, a big one. Becoming financially free was something I wanted from a young age even though I was still learning about what the heck it meant. All I knew is that if you needed something you had to have money to pay for it. I knew that you had to work to make money and that it wasn’t always easy to find a job unless you specialized in something that was needed. I ask myself, ‘How to’ do something when I don’t understand what I’m doing and Google it. I did lots of that when I was in University and I still do it today for just about anything I need clarification on. Is it all true what we read online? No, so before you rush out to make millions of dollars from licking envelopes be ready to embrace the good, […]

Dangers Of Role-Playing The Rich Life Without Financial Peace : The Saturday Weekend Review #213

WHEN THE CURTAINS CLOSE WHO WILL BE THERE TO SAVE YOU?   I’ve learned that there is no in-between for people when it comes to financial success and what one would consider money failure. Many people either consider themselves rich or poor and that’s what they base financial success on rather than being comfortable in the middle. I’m not going to get into a spiel (shocking I know) about how to save money or get out of debt because I’m sure by now you should know how-stop spending money. Instead I want to focus on financial peace and what it means to you. Have you ever thought about what would bring you financial peace in your life instead of stress? If yes, how are you working towards attaining financial peace? If no, stop trying to figure it all out or pretending you’re someone you’re not for the sake of playing the lead role in a movie about your life that doesn’t exist. Related: How to say No, I’m on a budget. Unanswered questions most often become swept behind and forgotten until it’s too late. Why is it so hard for someone to say, ‘I’m broke‘ or “I just don’t have […]

Makeup And My Beauty Routine Is Going To Bankrupt Me : The Saturday Weekend Review #191

BEAUTY IS A BIG INDUSTRY THAT CAN SWALLOW YOUR MONEY WITH DESIGNER PROMISES   My wife was talking to her sister on Skype while she was getting ready for work yesterday morning. She was in the bathroom straightening her hair and said she had been up since 5:30am and she was running behind as it was 7am. I’m in the kitchen prepping the pumpkin spice coffee into the coffee pot that was graciously gifted to us by our neighbour for watching his cat while they went on holidays. In the midst of pouring the water in the back of the worst coffee pot ever I’m trying NOT to listen to them chat but it’s hard not to when the topic is about Money. You have to understand something about my wife’s sister, she’s a Hollywood beauty enthusiast and loves everything to do with make-up, body lotions, creams and perfume. Her closet is an entirely different situation but let’s just say in the past 3 weeks she’s donated over 4 garbage bags full and she’s still not done purging at the advice of her mother. When she was younger there was no hiding that she had debt because she was spending […]
