How to Become Wealthy

You need to read more nonfiction books. Sounds crazy right? I’m not even sure how I ended up reading this particular Business Insider article but it defiantly had a fascinating point to make. A man named Steve Siebold spent 30 years studying and interviewing 1,200 wealthy individuals. He wanted to know what they all had in common. He wanted to know, in essence, what was their secret sauce. Continue reading “How to Become Wealthy”

Thanksgiving, Christmas and a New Year

Instead of posting an article for each of these holidays I decided to make one combined post. The first thing I want to mention is the one thing I’m most thankful for, Jesus. God loved us so much that He sent His one and only Son to die for our sins. A son who was blameless and perfect. Someone who never deserved to be beaten and murdered. But God sent Him anyways because His love for us is greater than we could ever fathom. I know 2016 might not have been the year you wanted it to be but God still loves you. No matter what happens, His loves will never waver, never change, never lessen. That is defiantly something to be thankful for. Continue reading “Thanksgiving, Christmas and a New Year”

Debt, Debt and More Debt

I know what your thinking, oh great their talking about it again. When will they ever stop talking about that dreaded four letter word, debt? Well, when our nation is completely debt free, government, business and personal, I will cease talking about it. Translation, I will never stop talking about it. This time we are going to focus on credit card debt. One of the worst kinds of debt out there. Continue reading “Debt, Debt and More Debt”

Greatest Giver of Them All

Many times in my life I’ve heard people say the Bible is old and it might have been relevant when it was written but it no longer is. It is true that society over the past two centuries has drastically changed but God’s word is just as true today as it was yesterday or a thousand years ago. First I will start with a verse and then look at where we are at today. Continue reading “Greatest Giver of Them All”

The Impulse Buy and Dumb Purchases

Have you ever bought something that later on, you regretted purchasing? Have you ever spent more for something than you needed too or simply should have? Have you bought something that seemed like a great deal but it turned out to be more of a rip off? If you keep saying no to all of these questions then you either live in a cave or you’re not being very honest with yourself. Anyways, a few weeks ago I had one of these experiences. Continue reading “The Impulse Buy and Dumb Purchases”

The Overflow

When I ran across a Christian music streaming service similar to Spotify but for only Christian music, I was excited. Part of the excitement was the fact that the monthly price was half that of most music streaming services, $4.99. I will also mention this was the first streaming service I’ve tried. I’m still stuck in the days of buying to own. But this service stuck out to me for another reason beyond the price. They advertised exclusive devotionals from leading Christian artists which led me to sign up for their 7 day trial. So if your a panhead or love to throw up your rawkfist read on to learn more about this service. Continue reading “The Overflow”

Good News for Retirement Savings

I talked about it before, when it comes to saving for retirement, time matters. According to Chase Bank, Baby Boomers began saving for retirement at age 40, Gen X began at age 30 and Millennials began at age 23. This is a big deal. The earlier you start saving, the more time your savings has to multiply. It gives more room for the rule of 70 to work its magic. Continue reading “Good News for Retirement Savings”

NFL Struggles Continue

It’s been on the news a lot this year, NFL viewership is down. The once mighty beast that no one thought could be slayed has been taken down…a little. The odd part is the NFL doesn’t seem to know why they are struggling. Despite all the money they make and all the power they have, they simply can’t figure out why viewership is down. They’ve blamed it on the election, the World Series and other events that have stolen their thunder. But if they don’t know what is going on then how do they expect to fix it? This is a situation that no business wants to be in because their hopes are simply in the hands of fate and wishful thinking. Continue reading “NFL Struggles Continue”

The Death of Scottrade

Do you have a company that your fiercely loyal to? A company who might not be the best in the industry but you love them flaws and all? For me that company is Scottrade. Recently the news came out that TD Ameritrade was in the process of purchasing them. Needless to say I was devastated. Is this an overreaction to something that happens everyday? Probably but Scottrade is not something that can’t be easily replaced. Continue reading “The Death of Scottrade”

It’s Finally Over

You know what I’m talking about, the elections. No matter how you feel about your local, state and federal elections, the fact of the matter is, they finally all are over for this year. I’m pretty sure I just heard the entire US cheer but any polls you read would defiantly show the opposite. I know, it was a bad joke but I’m not even going to delve into politics with this post. What I will delve into is something I’ve been talking about since I started this blog and it’s something I will be talking about for a very long time. Continue reading “It’s Finally Over”
