$6000 Update- January 2018

Here is the update for January 18. For those of you that are new, last summer I was looking into investing using one of these Silicon Valley financial company startups. I was reading reviews based on offers, fees, investment minimum, etc., but I couldn’t find anything on how well they performed. Therefore, I conducted my own $1000 investment experiment where I invest $1000 through each of the companies listed in the charts below. I made a few $1000 investments back on…

Basic B* Financial Plan

Basic B* Financial Plan

It is a new year, and this is the time when people put action towards their goals so they can forget about them next month. I too am doing this; I have started my second week of meal prepping. Sunday I made tacos. I meal prepped chicken and ground beef, got canned corn and refried beans, cut up grape tomatoes and lettuce, purchased corn and crunchy tortillas. I even made rice, which I froze. This week I’ve had tacos, taco…

My Laziness cost me $20K

Sometimes, I will be sitting on…

When Social Media Makes you feel Bad Part 2

When Social Media Makes you feel Bad Part 2

In my previous post, I went through some of the things you should focus on rather than what you see in Social Media, especially when Social Media makes you feel a liiiittle crappy. Now here’s a gentle reminder that social media has a lot of bullshit too. There are a lot that you don’t see behind the scenes when people post about their awesome lives. For example, when I bought my first condo at 26, it was because I freaking…
