Find out how Erin quit her low-paying job, moved to a lower-cost-of-living area and launched her own business.
"I only earn enough to make the minimum payment on my loans." "My boss doesn't pay me enough, so I can't save a dime." "I'd love to quit my job, but I don't think that's realistic." The Naysayer Brigade makes statements like the examples above -- statements that give power to their bosses and the economy, while demoralizing themselves. Most of the fighters in Afford Anything's rebellion understand that you're the only person who can change your ...

Why you shouldn't haphazardly pick stocks ... 
“A blindfolded monkey throwing darts at a newspaper's financial pages could beat most experts.” Princeton professor Burton Malkiel uttered that slam against Wall Street stock traders back in 1973, riffing that despite their fancy-pants degrees, professional traders can't predict the future any ...

A few years ago I went camping in southeastern Utah with a group of friends. “I love this place,” I said, gazing at the towering sandstone canyons. Then, ever so casually, I commented, “Hmm. Maybe I'll come live here for a summer. Just two or three months. Could be fun.” ...

Investing, Broken Down to its Ridiculously Simple Core http://bit.ly/1ahns5i #Invest2015  
Myth: Wealth and freedom come exclusively from living below your means. Fact: Frugality is the first step ... not the last. ~~~~~ There's a couple that I've known for more than a decade.

Real Wealth is Measured in Freedom.
