Money Stinks!

Cash and coins do stink, sometimes.   They are covered with germs and maybe this is why most of us now handle money online and also with credit and debit cards.

Is Money A Problem?

There are some gurus around who say that money is never the problem but you and I know that it feels like it is sometimes, unless of course it isn't for you.  

How Do You Handle Money?

Do you have a budget, to plan and control your money?  Are you spending less than you make?  Do you save money?  Do you invest money?  Do you know everything there is to know about money?  Let's explore some ideas.  If you don't use a budget, maybe you should.  You can find a little 2 page free PDF that lays out a simple budget here.

Money - It's all about control

It used to be crucial that you know how to balance a checking account.  In our current world, a lot is now automatic.  Still you need to have control over where money comes from, how much, and where it goes.  The consequences for not handling it properly are sometimes severe: being broke, getting evicted, losing a mortgage, or even having to declare bankruptcy.  Bankruptcy can stay on your credit for ten years and if you've never been bankrupt, you may not know that in some ways you don't personally control where your money goes, not all of it.  Still, if you're in dire straits, the only option to get out from under the stress may be to find a good attorney and get some advice on your situation.  You'll want to be fully informed about the process and all the ramifications of it before pulling the trigger on it.  Always seek the advice of accountants and/or attorneys if you're not sure what to do.

How Is Your Resume?

If you're in a good job or have a viable business running,  you may not need a resume but it's still good to keep it up to date.  If you don't have a resume, start one.  If you need help, there are services around but check them out before hiring one.  You may have a friend who is good at resumes, too.

What Other Assets Do You Have?

Personal assets aren't just about money and property

  1. What are you good at?
  2. What experience have you had
  3. What courses have you taken and in what?
  4. How much education have you had?

These things can always be improved or added to.  You are worth more than you may realize, at first.


Credit...

Did your credit take a hit from going through a divorce?  Maybe your ex was not paying bills on time or did other things to trash your credit score.  Don't just sit back and wait for it to get better. Do something!
