5 Examples Of A Wealth Mindset To Inspire You In 2018 : The Saturday Weekend Review #247

Building wealth from scratch takes more than just Money   Who wants to become a millionaire these days? Not as many people as you think because they are working on becoming debt-free before anything else. You must understand that to reach your top-level of financial success you must carry a wealth mindset wherever you go and with whatever you do in life. Sounds like lots of work BUT if your goals especially for the new year are to smash debt, build investments and increase your income you simply can’t spend without mindful habits of the rich. Why the rich? Last year I published a post about Rich being my new Happiness and I wrote that to remind myself and others that YOU define rich, not anyone else. I wasn’t shocked to see how popular that post became only because most people are getting rich shoved down their throats these days. Never-mind becoming rich, I just want to become debt-free.

Not all home insurance policies will cover roofer scam artists let alone their shady work. Always read the fine print on your home insurance policy and if […]

SORTING OUT OUR FINANCIAL AFFAIRS TAKES MORE THAN SIMPLE MATH   For the first time in her life Mrs. CBB bought a brand new cell phone but it took her 20 years to make the decision to do so. Financial sacrifice has been a huge part of both of our lives from the time we were young and even today now that we have our mortgage paid off, $200,000 in the bank and almost all of our investments topped up. It’s not much really considering we could have done better saving using a budget earlier on in our lives. But to someone else that’s a success they dream about. Let me tell you something, it wasn’t easy and it won’t be easy for you. We gave up lots to get ahead and not a day goes by where we regret anything we’ve done.   Unlimited Moves   The other day we made a phone to Rogers our provider for home phone, cable, internet and Mrs.CBB’s new Samsung Galaxy 7 (S7).
