One of the beauties of running Rockstar Finance is that I get to see a ton of cool ways to talk about money that doesn’t sound like the same thing over and over again, even though it is ;) Unfortunately that also means I have to sift through hundreds of articles every day that DO actually sound the same (the point of Rockstar is to […]

There’s a beautiful line in the movie We Bought A Zoo that goes like this: You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage.

I’ve caught myself thinking something satisfying lately every time I see someone older than me with something I badly desire (paid off house, killer career, the life of retirement). And that is: “I’d rather be young” It’s kinda mean, but I can’t tell you how much it pipes down my jealousy! We’re all gonna get old at some point, of course – no way around […]

“What should I do – invest or pay off my mortgage?” “What’s better – paying off debt or building up savings?” “Who’s sexier – you or Brittany Spears?” My answer to these questions are always the same: Whichever excites you the most. (Except for the Britney Spears one, she wins all comparisons as I have a soft spot for her ;)) Yes there’s a financially “correct” […]

[Look! A post about budgeting! When was the last time we talked about *that* here on this blog, haha.. I should rename this site HustlingIsSexy.com ;) But what I lack in budgeting posts, my man Dan Miller more than makes up for today with his own sharing of budgetary skills.
