Financial information is the key to change.

Unfortunately, for most of us, basic financial information is not taught in schools. We live in a country that continues to pass out diplomas to people who lack healthy financial skills, creating a society not prepared to handle the financial ups and downs of everyday living. The road to financial freedom is paved with information; join me on my journey.

Growing: The Wealth Gap

The wealth gap between the haves and the have-nots in this country continues to widen. We are fast approaching a new year. Do we continue using the same kind of thinking and actions in the new year that has prevented us from living debt-free and creating wealth?

Do we continue feeding our minds with chaos such as reality television shows that teach us that behaving badly is okay, movies that teach our children how to become the next jack a** stars, or shows that teach our daughters that being a bad girl is cool? Do we continue spending billions of dollars on violent video games that seem to sap our children of creativity, respect and patients?

Do we continue to stand in long lines on Black Friday to spend borrowed money? Do we continue creating debt that will take us years to repay? Do we continue putting on a happy face pretending that life is great? Will we spend another year thinking of reasons not to take charge of our financial situation? Will we spend another year helping to create additional wealth for the haves?

We are surrounded by information that can help us improve our lives on every level.  How will the haves spend the new year?  Will they invest in learning are things? Freedom of choice is powerful.  How will you spend the new year?
