Man, it’s been almost a year since we last did this! Crazy…I seriously almost didn’t post this up as I thought it was only a month or two since our last one. Haha… time flies when you’re managing your money ;)
For anyone who missed the last Googlizing we did, I basically copy & paste a handful of questions people googled to get here and then I answer them all (one of the fun parts about blogging is seeing how people interact and get to your site – we all use some sort of tracking devices so watch out! haha….j/k. sorta).
I try to stick w/ the ones that grab my attention or that can do us some good – minus all the porn references, which as you can imagine is a decent percentage with a name like Budgets are SEXYYYY. Don’t mind the traffic, but obviously won’t be converting many of them into life-time readers ;)
Okay, so here we go…
discuss what job would you like to do in the future
You got it – I’d like to create an online empire where I blog and do fun financial projects all day long :) On top of hitting up my top 10 jobs list too somewhere in between (Starbucks, Bank, …)
is 5 dollars a day good?
YES! Saving ANYTHING per day is good, but $5 in particular can eventually grant you Millionaire Status…esp if you can wait 40 or so years ;)
average net worth in america
I actually looked for this myself back in ’08 and came across this awesome net worth tool from CNN Money. 2 years ago the average net worth for my age (28 at the time) was $2,125, and for my salary ($75k) was $244,100. I just ran the numbers again, and now we’re looking at a median average of $8,525 for age, and $301,475 for income. Nowhere close to the net worth # right now, but def. killin’ the age average.

I personally go through about $600 each year – and that’s AFTER giving up on major shopping ;) (I think my monthly budget for clothes was around $150/mo – so not too shabby now)

how much is lebron james net worth
This one cracks me up every time I see it – which is surprisingly a lot ;) I had to google the answer (hah!) and got bored after scouring around 5 minutes, but the closest I came was to a BBC article from 2008 saying he had earned a cool $270 Million so far. Doesn’t show how much he’s actually “worth,” but it should give you a good idea….he’s a baller. Literally.
