I’d really appreciate it if you would share with me your attitude about money! It’s completely confidential, will take just 1 minute, and is even sort of cool, BUT I’m not going to twist your arm now or anything my friend. 

CLICK, CLICK, WINK, WINK. =)

Why Aren’t You Richer?

I’ve read a lot of money books in the past years and really like the Introduction part of the book Make Money, Not Excuses.  It talks about the 4 things that you need to do if you want to be wealthier than you are today.  I like the way the author, Jean Chatzky, dwindles these ideas down for us. Here they are:

1. You need to make a decent living.

2. You need to spend less than you make.

3. You need to invest the money you don’t spend so that it can work as hard for you as you’re working for yourself.

4. You need to protect yourself and this financial world you’ve built so that a disaster–big or small–doesn’t take it all away from you. 

She says these are the meat and potato and I would agree. You can buy her book here OR, you could make a donation to your library and check it out from them if you feel the need to spend!

Rome Around the World…

I’m happily cleaning my place and listening to music. I just blasted “Rome Around The World” by the B52’s and thought I’d post some pics of when I was in Rome.  I went to Rome right before I moved to Texas. If I could figure out how to upload the song here I would love to do that for you. 

I flew into Rome and met up with my friend from Florida who was travelling the world…that lucky duck! Anyway, we went all around Italy and it was fantastic. After traveling around and totally loving life, I left my friend in Venice and went back to Milan to catch my flight back to the US. WHOA did I seriously think I was going to get killed! For real. I took the train back from Venice to Milan by myself which went totally fine and as planned, but then when I got to the train station and hopped in the cab to complete my trip to the airport did I get taken for a whirlwind. These “cabbies” claim to be cabbies and it can be hard to tell and they actually have these “cops” that verify the people are legit. Well the cabbie I got took me on a ride for almost 45 minutes. We drove like a million miles an hour, stole a tank of gas, and listened to some crazy ass Italian tunes. We then got to the airport and he dropped me off and left me curbside like nothing happened, AND he didn’t charge me a dime. Weird, huh?

 

Here I’m on top of the Vatican. Every time I went into a new city, I always climbed to the top of each and every single duomo.  Never seemed to get old, except I did get sick of being charged to get a little exercise, ya know? I also try to climb up Lighthouses too. Climb, climb, climb.
