I’m rushing around on a Friday like it’s Monday morning. How did my week disappear? It can’t be Friday already. There’s still have so, so, so much to do.
As you’ve noticed, the site’s had some heavy machinery laying around lately. Kathleen’s busy creating a fresh, Stacky new look to our basement publication. Mom thinks some day we might even appear to be professional. That’d surprise her (and us). It’s exciting to bring you so many ideas each week (this will be post nine for this week!), plus a renewed energy on our Facebook page, more Twitter content, more giveaways from Doug….it’s been really fun….which brings me to today’s thought.
When is the last time you decided to change directions? ….to chart a new course? To decide that something which you’ve always found “scary” or “out of reach” was really the best way to go?

People are always afraid of investing at market highs. Graham at Moneystepper explains why the market really may not be as high as you think it is on the latest episode of the Moneystepper podcast.
Here’s something silly. A guy whom I think is really smart, James Altucher, says you shouldn’t invest in your 401k. In the video he begins by stating you can’t get at your money until age 65….which shows how little he knows about this topic. Sigh.
I know many people who fear looking at their credit score. Well, at the very least you shouldn’t fear paying for it. Paula Pant teaches you how to just hack it.
