Life’s a Beach

Every year around this time my family and I take a week long vacation to the beach. For the past handful of years we’ve landed in Rehoboth, Delaware, but this time around we’re heading down south and trying something new: Charleston, South Carolina – opah!

Here’s a brief bio from their website (DebtorsAnonymous.org): “Debtors Anonymous offers hope for people whose use of unsecured debt causes problems and suffering in their lives and the lives of others… For many it is a false crutch that feeds fantasy and […]

What goes up must come down! We hit a whopper of a last day to close out the month, didn’t we? Jeez…  If only I had gobs of money to scoop up some shares while low! :) But alas it’s all a part of the game… 5 of the last 8 months have resulted in an increase of net worth, and it’s all a long […]

Yup, as of last night I officially became a money coach after having my first (paid) session with a client :) And as you can probably assume ‘cuz we’re all money nerds here, it was fun as shit to help her, haha… You think looking over your own money is fun, try diving into another person’s world!

And today I’m happy to report that number just dropped by $355.38! Woohoo! That’s my wife’s check above she just claimed from the great state of Maryland this weekend :) How […]

Thumbnail image for It’s Not About The Money…

I caught myself saying something pretty lame the other day, making me then feel old as balls: “The younger generation doesn’t appreciate money these days.” It seemed accurate in the context of our conversation, but then again I could be totally wrong. After all, what does a guy in his mid-30′s know about being in his early 20s again? He can’t even remember his 21st […]

Just call me the next Justin Timberlake, baby! Or, rather, just never call me again, haha… What you’re about to watch is really really bad – I’m not kidding. And I’m not talking about just the ghetto quality either. I wouldn’t be surprised if your computer screens cracked mid-way through watching ;) But when I heard there was a contest to win $1,000 for just […]
