Came across this quote last week and can’t stop contemplating it: Remember when you wanted what you currently have?

With fifty large ones right away You feel your own true worth, But get a hundred-dollar bill — Ah, well you own the earth. ****** Just let a fellow walk about Without a […]

That was the subject line of a marketing promo I just got from Go Daddy, and after reading the main point it reminded me how POWERFUL this can be for your *financial goals* too!

Happy MLK Day! Did you know he was also a personal finance proponent back in the day? He once wanted to get what he and others called a “Freedom Budget” going that offered up a “practical, step-by-step plan for wiping out poverty in America during the next 10 years.” Which of course we’re still a ways away from these days (hell – we can’t even […]
