Pay Yourself First

Money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish, but it will not replace you as the driver. –Ayn Rand — I talked recently about the effects of debt on your pocket book, and more specifically about how credit card companies and bank loans can have you paying twice or sometimes even thrice the price of the item you initially bought.  It was not a pretty picture, but I hope it was... read more
