[The following is an awesome guest article by Kalen from MoneyMiniBlog.com. Who gives us an in-depth look at a career in the military, as well as the finances behind it. Hoo-rah!] You know how military stories usually begin: There I was. [Insert Basic Training Location]. [Insert year]. We’ve all heard it. So why do they always begin with Basic Training? Because it’s… the beginning. And because […]

You know how we’re always so concerned about our Credit Score? The dreaded Mr. Fico who goes up and down and all around, playing with our emotions quicker than an episode of The Bachelor? Well, not to worry anymore… There’s a new score in town, folks. It’s called the “PF” Score, and here’s more from the founder: The new score that I’m proposing is called […]

There’s not too many things that surprise me anymore with money, but apparently I still haven’t came across them all yet. My wife walked into my office this week and proudly exclaimed, “Our daycare rate went down! For doing nothing!” “Ummm… how is that possible??” I confusingly shot back. “Baby Money moved up to a new class size w/ fewer teacher-to-child ratio. We’re gonna save […]

That was the subject line of an email I found in my drafts this morning :) Pretty catchy right? I like to rummage through my inbox every now and then when I have a fit of writer’s block, and that line stole my attention right away and got me to open up the rest of the email to see what words I had dropped… And, […]

Okay, so my wife has been reading all these baby message boards lately, and usually nothing exciting is ever going on in there. At least to me – a guy – who hasn’t a clue about the female body and all its twists and turns it goes through to produce such amazing little angels in the end.

[Guest author today, Ben Luthi, of The Wealth Gospel] During my last year and a half as a college student, I did an internship with one of the top firms in the financial services industry. And lucky for me, it wasn’t one of those coffee/donut/make copies kind of internships. I actually had my own financial planning practice and did everything the full-time guys did. I […]

I got a pretty common (and in depth) email shot my way this week on something most of us are trying to get better at ourselves – having money left over every month. So I thought it was worth sharing today and getting your take on it as well. My advice to her was pretty much what you’d expect from reading this blog for more […]

I’m not going to pretend I know anything about debt since I’ve been fortunate enough to avoid it for most of my life (outside of mortgages, ugh…), BUT, I’m 100% convinced that anyone who truly wants to get out of debt can do it. It may not be tomorrow, or the next year, but it’s VERY much possible to do if you prioritize and hustle […]
