June 2018 and Financial and Goals

June was a memorable month for sure. We took our best vacation yet and also had Mom, Katrina and Abbie down for part of the month. I don’t have any exact data to give you on the Arizona heat but I would guess this was the hottest month of the year so far. The girls […]

Are your Kids in your Will

This may be a tough topic to talk about for some parents with kids. Some people may have not ever thought about not putting your kids in their Will. But their may be good reasons why some kids may not be in their parents will. I recently read about Shaq and his kids. He said […]

May 2018 and Financial and Goals

  May was a wild ride for sure. We did a bunch of fun stuff this month. But we had no rain again. We haven’t had rain here in Arizona since our relatives were here back in March. Hopefully we will get some soon. Our water bill is a rising with me watering our trees […]

Track It for more Income

Most people I have worked with thought they knew what they were spending for the month on different categories of their expenses. Yes, they may know what their House Payment or Car Payment is but they may not be close to knowing what they spent for the month on Food, Gas or Entertainment Expenses. People […]

Budget for more Income

The word Budget isn’t a sexy word to most people for sure. A lot of people probably don’t like to even use that word. It may sound boring to others unless you love numbers or an account. I am one of those who love numbers and spreadsheets. My wife hasn’t ever complained about all my […]
