Root Cause

Most people I talk to that currently don’t enjoy what they do for a living usually list money as the reason. Yet, I often tell them that money can’t be the root cause why they don’t enjoy their current job, since most things we do for leisure as humans we don’t get paid for but pay someone else for the service instead.

Thus, the focus in my opinion should be on doing something for a living that you’re passionate about and that piques your interest outside of work some, oppose to just chasing a check on who is willing to pay the most.

To Date Or Not To Date?

The goal should always be for both a man and a woman to try and make a great impression on anybody they’re interested in dating, mainly so the person will want to go out with them. However, there are certain things that can be done unintentionally, which can hinder your chances.

  • Trying To Borrow Money Before Even Going On The First Date

For a lady to do this, it can be perceived that she really isn’t dating to get to know the guy but just looking for someone to give her some money. Next, if a guy does this , it comes completely off as him not being stable enough financially to even be trying to date at the moment.

  • Expecting To Be Made A Top Priority Overnight By The Other Person

Everybody that you meet initially isn’t going to make you the top priority in their life over night. Thus, you don’t want to get too emotional with the person when they don’t and potentially come off as crazy to them.

Debt Season

During the holiday season most people usually spend more money on gifts then what they actually can afford. Furthermore, a lot of people often go in debt during the holidays that isn’t easy for them to get out of. As a result, listed below are a couple of things that should help reduce or eliminate holiday debt completely.

Bi-weekly Pay Check

If you get paid bi-weekly there is two months within the year where you will get paid three times instead of the normal two. Thus, treat those two paychecks as a yearly bonus and put that money aside as your Christmas saving.

Income Tax

Instead of blowing all your income tax money if you’re lucky enough to get anything back after filing your taxes, leverage some if not all of that money towards a Christmas saving for the end of the year.

New City Life

The possibility of moving to a new city can be very exciting, mainly since it can be look at as an opportunity for a fresh start in life. However, below are a couple of key things to consider before deciding to move to a new place, especially if you have a young child.

Cost Of Living

  • It’s important to make sure that you’re not going to be paying significantly more in rent or mortgage at the new place before you move, unless your pay at the new job will be increasing enough to make up for the difference so you can afford to live there.

Dependable & Trusted Babysitter

  • Make sure you have a support system in place of a family member or a dependable friend that you trust to babysit your child in case you need to work on the weekends, want to hang out with some friends, or go out on a date.

Leaving The Nest

I don’t have any kids yet, mainly because I rather be married first, but I definitely want to be able to help and give any child of mines an even better head start in life once they become an adult than what I had. This is usually the goal of all parents, but as in everything in life, things don’t always go as plan and sometime parents can actually be hurting their kid when they think that they’re helping.

A great example is letting your kid continue to stay with you after they are done with school and working. If your child is saving a significant amount of their money monthly to buy a house or putting it to an emergency fund this can be a great thing, However, if your child is just blowing most of their money monthly this can be a very bad thing, especially if he/she is living a lifestyle with you that they wouldn’t be able to sustain on their own.

The key reason I say this is because if your child is living a much better lifestyle with you and doing whatever they want with their money they will be less motivated to ever move out. Second, they probably will struggle when they do move out, whether living alone or with someone in a relationship who wants them to help out on the bills, if they’ve become accustom to doing whatever they want monthly with their pay money.

Last, if a child does stay with their parents for years after school and been working the majority of that time when they move out, but got nothing to show for it, I do feel the parents fail in helping their kid get that important head start in life.
