It’s easy to look at a celebrity and think, Man I wish I could live their life. They have money, fame, likely an amazing body and are surrounded with other celebs. But what comes with that fame? What comes with having it all? If we really got everything we wanted,…

Don’t lower your values because of fear. Sometimes we are in situations that we don’t particularly like. We may even find ourselves surrounded with negativity.

My mother always told me never to co-sign for anyone. Build your own credit and get your own stuff. If someone needs you to co-sign on something, it is because they cannot get it and keep it themselves, which is why they need a co-signer. I don’t agree with everything…
