More Difficult, Less Difficult This is the one million dollar question.  If it were easy, there wouldn’t be many in the world with financial hardships.

And not to say that bad things don’t happen to good people…they do! Things that are basically out of their control. But in order to turn the situation around, a plan and dedication to the plan would be required.

We would like to think that sticking with a financial plan is difficult, but the truth is that the challenge is not in the difficulty.  It’s lies within the thought that change is hard. Continue Reading >>

How to Make 2014 Your Year of Saving

by Patrenia on January 20, 2014 · 2 comments

Savings PosterI recently read an article written by Laura Vanderkam in the Wall Street Journal a while back.  The title was, “Are You As Busy As You Think?”  The busy question didn’t really strike me.  I have definitely had my share of busy over the years, but I’ve made corrections by releasing some activities that didn’t serve me or my family well.  Even today, I’m protective of my time…very protective.

This is an exercise that is done monthly (now), but I can Continue Reading >>
