Financial Mistakes to Avoid At All Costs

Let’s look at over ten common financial mistakes individuals make that wreck them on rocky shores immediately or after years of neglect.

How to Become Semi-FI Rapidly

This post is mostly for the 70% of the U.S. population that lives paycheck to paycheck. You need a much better financial cushion than a cardboard box. You need to make sure your “friend” isn’t making up stories about you to screw with you, because you dare talk goals and values. (See OTM) Let me tell you about those tattle-tales.
