The Costs of Raising a Child

The Costs of Raising a Child

FacebookemailTwitterPinterestTumblrRedditLinkedinBesides purchasing an expensive home, raising a child is the single most costly thing you’ll ever pay for in your lifetime. If done correctly, raising a child is worth the financial responsibilities that come with it. Problems occur when people have children before they are financially ready. They either have a child by “accident”, or they have a child to fill a void in their life. Neither is correct, and ends up being worse for the child and society as…

Joint Bank Accounts: the Good, the Bad, & the Ugly

Joint Bank Accounts: the Good, the Bad, & the Ugly

FacebookemailTwitterPinterestTumblrRedditLinkedinRecently, a friend asked a question or two about he and his soon to be wife’s bank accounts. He asked for my input on using separate accounts, one joint account, or both. I told him, “I have no clue. It’s something you and your fiancé would have to look into.” His question got me thinking on the topic at hand. How should you handle you and your partner’s finances? What’s most efficient? What causes the least amount of issues in…

Vetting Your Significant Other Via Personal Finance

Well, who influences you the most in life? If you have one, your significant other. All individuals become complacent, afraid to change their circumstances out of fear.

How Much Is The Holiday Season Costing You?

How Much Is The Holiday Season Costing You?

FacebookemailTwitterPinterestTumblrRedditLinkedinThis post is late, but why not start planning for next year? In the last two years, I kept spending an outrageous amount of money during the holiday season, leading to a financial hangover the coming year. I’d live like a hermit the first couple of months of the succeeding year in order to make up for money blown on the holiday season. A toxic way to live if you think about it. And for what?

Dating In The Office

Dating In The Office

FacebookemailTwitterPinterestTumblrRedditLinkedin“Don’t s**t where you eat.” Yea, I said it. Besides sleeping in your bed, most people spend a majority of their time at work. A minimum of 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, equals a lot of time spent with fellow coworkers and colleagues. Many great friendships blossom, and some will inevitably turn into something more romantically involved. Good or bad idea? Terrible idea. Hollywood does a phenomenal job portraying office romance as completely normal. Your typical work…
