Work Team Goals

Work Team Goals

Towards the end of the workday, my friend and cubicle neighbor stopped by to vent about her boss. Let’s call my neighbor, Sarah. We are both in Revenue Assurance so our roles are to save the company money, but she does it through business to business, and I do it for a smaller subsidiary. Sarah recently got a new boss and was telling me that because of her micromanaging, she had a hard time getting her work done. And that…

Why do I love Real Estate

Why do I love Real Estate

Easy. Because its not that hard and my places appreciated a crap ton. Haha. I didn’t take classes or get any formal education on this. I just figured it out as I went. Like I’ve mentioned in my About Me post, I lived at my parent’s house until I had enough money to buy my first condo.

0% Interest Credit Cards

0% Interest Credit Cards

Credit cards, they are like the backstabbing friend that is nice to your face (when you go shopping, eat out, take trips together), but will burn you behind your back if you aren’t careful.

However if you are like everybody else in America, you have some credit…

Consolidating your credit card means that you will be paying one company one large payment with one interest rate per month. Ahhh, sounds simpler. When you have a bunch…

One morning as I was doing my weekday morning workout, I was listening to a podcast called Science of Success (I know, who listen’s to podcasts named something like that?) This particular episode, called 3 Keys You Need to Answer Life’s Most Important Questions, talked about what motivates you at work with the host, Matt Bodner, and special guest, Dr. Barry Schwartz. On it, Dr. Schwartz disputes Adam Smith’s economic philosophy from the Wealth of Nations, particularly the part that…

Tuesday Night Uber Ride

Tuesday Night Uber Ride

Tonight I went to a wine bar with my friend and ate fancy pizza. We didn’t drink wine because the specialty cocktails were on special… holla! We also talked about accounting and real estate because we are cool like that. (What? You want to be my friend?) On the way home, I took an Uber Pool (to save $4) and started talking to the driver and the other passenger. The other passenger was young, not yet 21, and was talking…
