Student Loans

There is ALOT I have to say about student loans, and I thought I would start with a very nice resource for students that have loans is this page at

This is mostly a resource page for recent graduates, but it may also help anyone who is considering borrowing money to go to school.

The things you need to consider are many, but essentially: Is it worth mortgaging your future to get a diploma? Will that diploma result in life satisfaction for you?

Take a look at the resources and tell me what you think. I will be stopping here more frequently w/ my thoughts and advice on Student Loans.

Would love to hear your thoughts.

Why Spend, Save and Share?

Yes, I believe it is important children learn to share, but do we really NEED to have that be monetary and incorporate it into financial literacy? I think not.

The latest book: The Opposite of Spoiled discussed, at length the need to have your children understand being charitible is very important.

I think it is best for children to understand that many social "ills" are remedied through their tax dollars (forced sharing), so they MUST be diligent when looking into organizations they choose to support financially.

What do you think?
