Goals Update and the Top PF Articles of the Week

I want to help people kick their debt in the teeth, which is why I am so adamant about growing this site. The better the articles I write, the more people visit and share it’s content, which then likely results in a greater number of people waging war against their depressed financial position. My efforts on this site could absolutely affect hundreds, if not thousands, of people for the better. This is why these yearly goals were born.

Weekly Round-Up and Goals Update #2

Weekly Round-Up

I read dozens (if not hundreds) of articles every week. Here are a few of the best ones I have read from this past week:

How to Save Like the Rich and Upper Middle Class (Hint: It’s Not With Your House) – by The Wall Street Journal – Almost everyone in my life has been a fan of house hopping. In other words, they buy a house, live in it for a couple years, put out the “For Sale” sign, earn a few bucks, and buy a bigger house with their bigger down payment. This is the epitome of middle class mentality… and it will never make you rich. I’m glad I broke free of this . . . → Read More: Weekly Round-Up and Goals Update #2

Goals Update #30

Do you have goals and dreams for your future? Do you have them written down? Every week, I remind myself of my goals for the month to make sure that I’m on track for hitting them. Sometimes I’m way behind the eight ball, and other times I really feel like I have a good handle on them. Either way though, my site improves and my readers have a better experience from the improvements.

Goals for July, 2012

Well, July is officially over. Let’s take a look at how we did.

1) Pay Extra Payment of $1,200 on the Home Loan

With this extra payment, we’ll officially owe less than $60,000 on our mortgage! That’s kind of exciting, don’t you think? Then the next goal will be the $50,000 mark, and then $40,000….and so on until we’re at zero!

Well it wasn’t easy, but we did make that . . . → Read More: Goals Update #30

While the $1,200 is still stashed away, this . . . → Read More: Goals Update #29

Goals Update and Weekly Round-Up #27

Goals for July, 2012

Last week I realized that I have a ton of goals, but there was really no central focus to them. Having goals is a great thing, but if you really have no reason to achieve them, you most likely won’t. I think that’s been a major reason why so many of my goals are still hanging out there and are unfinished.

So what’s the point of all this? While my wife . . . → Read More: Goals Update and Weekly Round-Up #27

Goals for June, 2012

Here’s the goals for June. I would really love to accomplish every one of these!

1) Project “Our House” – If we really buckled down and focused on this house, I bet we could get almost all of the interior projects finished by the end of this month. This will entail sanding and painting about 8 doors, painting 4-5 door trims, and finding some registers covers (15 or so) that fit . . . → Read More: Goals Update #24
