Monthly Goals: June 2017

At the beginning of every month I try to produce an income report and a monthly goals post. My monthly goals reflect over last month, and discuss new ideas for the upcoming month. Making goals for yourself is so important for success. There is no way to make improvements in your life, if you don’t know what you want or how to get there. Making goals is also a great way to motivate yourself and […]

Blogging: From Hobby To Full-Time Job

Hey guys! Today I have an interview with my blogging friend, Alexis. She is the creator of the super successful blog, FITnancials.

4 Week Minimalist Challenge: Week 2 Update

If you haven’t read my initial post about the minimalist challenge, or my week 1 update, start here. Why practice minimalism? Not only does buying (and owning) less items save money, but it also rids you of anything not adding value to your life. The overflowing closets, drawers, and shelves only create more stress and clutter! By having less stuff in your life, you don’t have to clean as much or be constantly overwhelmed with […]

10 Ways to Save Money While Traveling 

I am a firm believer in the idea that anyone can travel if they make it a priority. People will spend money on what they think is important – whether its a nice dinner out, new clothes, a piece of furniture, or a plane ticket. That being said, I totally get that travel can be super expensive. No one wants to blow their savings on a trip (even if it is a once in a […]

Join Me! 4 Week Minimalist Challenge

I’ve been reading a lot about minimalism lately and I’m super intrigued by it. Minimalists believe that by owning less physical items, you will be able to pursue a life that is more free and happy. Some people sell their homes, cars, and almost all their possessions in the hopes of living a more carefree life. I don’t think I will be selling my home or car anytime soon, but I want to apply some […]

How To Improve Your Credit Score ASAP!

Do you know your credit score? If you do know your score, do you understand it? Think of your credit score like your financial report card. Every time you apply for a loan, a credit card, or even cable TV, they will check your score to determine your credit-worthiness. If you have a bad score (below 620) it can have a negative impact on your ability to qualify for lower interest rates and you could […]
