Were you one of these people?! Like, when you used to go to work every day back in the Good Days? ;) I’m wayyyy too Goody Two-Shoes* to even dare try pulling these off (I’d get caught in a heartbeat!), but according to this survey by Procurify.com it’s something apparently a good chunk of people are doing: “30% of employees have expensed a personal purchase, […]

Money can buy food, but not an appetite. Money can buy position, but not respect. Money can buy friends, but not love. ***** Keep hanging in […]

Caught this stat in my draft folder and it hit me harder re-reading it now than it did in November! From a survey by real estate investing startup, Concreit: “Over half of millennials feel “more prepared” for next recession having lived through 2008″ Over half! Not bad! It would be interesting to see how these same people are feeling NOW as we’re currently in the […]
