When most people think of investing in themselves, they think of earning an MBA. In my case, I already mentioned that I pursued the CFP® designation. Not only was that a time commitment, but I had to invest into the training, into the books, and into the actual test itself.
You may have a strong opinion about politics or that you have something to say about AIDS prevention in South Africa. You may believe there is a serious conspiracy going on with the NSA surveillance program, or there is a serious lack of compassion in our society nowadays. You would like to talk about the great sex you had last night, or you just want to let go of your frustration after a tough day in the office.
If you do maintain a credit card, do things to reduce expenses. Try to pay off the full balance each month and on time. That results in interest-free credit. At the very least, make the monthly minimum payment before the due date to avoid a late fee.

“Stay in your niche,” Shannon suggests. “We had a few instances where we veered from the niche and we paid for it dearly. It might feel cheesy to sit down and figure out what your target market is or what your goals are for the company, but you have to do that. All that legwork needs to be done upfront. It’s just practical.”
When talking to Stone, I got to know more about his background and what’s even more fascinating is that he went to school and is a mechanical engineer by trade who started an engineering firm called Treadstone Performance Engineering that still exists today.

I know happy families with kids that live with no debt, feed the family, get to work, and have a roof over their heads with only one working spouse earning less than $50k/year. Look to your large expenses first – Large house? New car every 2 or 3 years? Expensive out-of-state schools similar to in-state alternatives?

Previous to watching this series, which I purchased 11/24/2016, I had no knowledge nor experience in trading or investing in stocks. The information, strategies, rules, featured guests, and knowledge content has given me what I perceive to be a good foundational understanding of what trading penny stocks is all about. Although at the time of writing this review 12/5/2016 I still do not have “experience” in trading stocks, but I do have a good working knowledge. I filled a large notepad full of notes, successful trading rules, references, brokers, charting sources, etc. If you are new to penny stock trading, or have been trading but with little success – I can honestly say that I would recommend these teachings to anyone who is serious about entering the trading market and/or refining their skills in order to be successful. I believe it is essential to have knowledge and understanding about a particular field of pursuit, before entering into it blindly. Since research has shown that between 80-90% of traders are unsuccessful – it is crucial that you learn the rules, patterns, and methods of those trading leaders that can guide you progressively toward achieving your goals. I plan on opening an account early 2017 and putting these lessons and teachings into practice.
So like I mentioned above I’ve got mixed thoughts about My Millionaire Mentor and the reason is because this is not really a product, it’s just a sales system for MOBE. I recently wrote my review of MOBE here which is a direct sales business and gave it a positive review because the company is definitely not a scam. However I’m tempted to say My Millionaire Mentor is a scam because the sales video and everything claimed is not really accurate.
I want to be around people that challenge me and call me out when I deserve it. When you surround yourself with people who care about their own lives and strive to be the best, that kind of energy is contagious.

Are you limping into the new year after spending a small fortune on holiday gifts? Pretty sure you’ll be making credit card payments until the end of time? Open up an old-fashioned Christmas club account at a credit union (or if you prefer, a holiday club). These are savings accounts you put money into throughout the year and reserve for the holidays. You’ll earn a little in interest, but the main goal is to sock money away so you don’t wind up in financial trouble in December.
“People who believe their best days are behind them rarely get rich, and often struggle with unhappiness and depression,” he writes. “Self-made millionaires get rich because they’re willing to bet on themselves and project their dreams, goals and ideas into an unknown future.”

You may feel that individuals who are millionaires are the ones who drive flashy cars and own the latest gadgets. That isn’t true in most cases, and shouldn’t be in your case if you are looking to work your way to millionaire status. To maintain your income’s growth, this is the time when you have to seek out the clearance rack or sales. Never accept retail price, it simply isn’t worth it. This is the case in grocery stores, shopping malls, the internet, or even club/gym memberships.
