Early Career, Investment Property Mortgages
In the 1980s, self-driving cars and smartphones without antennas were only things you’d see in movies — unimaginable futuristic goals.

These goals could be turning your dream side hustle into a full-time job or building your savings from zero in the next year to buy your dream home. While the end result seems unreachable, a mix of motivation, determination, and hard work can get you further than you think. ...

Arlington
The post Financial Advice Keeping You Broke & In Debt appeared first on Penny Pinchin' Mom. Financial advice is great – when it is the right type of advice.  There are tips and strategies that can make you money.  However, there is also a lot of advice that will do nothing but keep you broke and in debt.  These are things you don’t want to listen to.

No note on my windshield.  Just a dented...

Chris, Liam, and Luke Hemsworth have just let their California family retreat go, for $4.25 million. It initially landed on the market in September for $4.9 million.

Shed no tears for the bros, who are among Hollywood’s hottest commodities. It may be they’re just too busy with their careers, and don’t have the time to relax together as they used to.
