Since April, I've made some fantastic progress (if I do say so myself....) My emergency fund is at a comfortable $1000 I have opened a Roth IRA at Vanguard with $1000 in the STAR fund and am making monthly contributions of $100. I intend to buy the total market index fund as soon as I reach the requ...

Hey- Timely question as I'm also job hunting. I have been self-employed for the past 4 years (full time only for about 8 months) and have decided my aggressive debt-reduction plan was not aided by my erratic income. I currently have offers from the two places I was able to get interviews (one I pers...

After today's deposit, my emergency fund is at $2150! *This does include savings for my estimated tax payments so it's not all available in the event of some carpocolypse. However, my goal was to initially save $1000 in my emergency fund and I certainly have that covered. Now, I move on to phase two...

My car just hit 60,000 miles and started to make squeaky squeaky. I was just about due for my break pads to be replaced and hoped that's all I would need (about $70.) Cute, but no. My roter (is that even what it's called?) was stripped and had to be resurfaced, break pads had to be replaced and a ti...

A few months ago, a good friend of mine directed me to GRS. I had a spotty financial past that included a lot of guilt, shame and fear surrounding the way I dealt (or rather, didn't deal) with my money. The information couldn't have come at a better time as I recently made the leap to self-employmen...

I'm a classical/opera singer and voice teacher.

And I feel like I'm 14.

I just opened an ING account for emergency savings (as well as the 25% I deduct from every check for self-employment tax.) Eventually, I plan to open a second ING savings account to separate the tax money from the emergency money. I recently took on a second job specifically for debt reduction/savin...

I haven't had a land line since it was included in my grad student housing!

If you live in a decent reception area and have a charger, you shouldn't have any problem! Except maybe figuring out what you're going to do with your extra $400/year! And you're doubly safe with two phones!

I'm currently a self-employed musician (classical performer and voice/music theory teacher.) Most performers attempt to find a day job that is flexible enough to pursue their music. I took this route and worked my way up - eventually to management - at a large Barnes and Noble. I found that as much ...

I have all my bills (with the exception of rent) on auto pay and it's great. When I first financed my car and started having car payments and insurance deducted every month, it was a financial turning point. I had to have the money to pay them. I've adopted the same mentality for all my other expens...

I am planning on opening an IRA to which I will be contributing about $200/month. I'm self-employed and as I build my business, this is as much as I can currently afford to put towards retirement. Not ideal, but it's something. Can anyone suggest where to open the IRA and invest it? I'm in my early ...

Being young and with debt, it had never occurred to me to protect my assets. Until recently. A very popular classical singer with an incredibly busy schedule of international engagements recently canceled all of them and pretty much dropped off the map. She did this to avoid paying a huge percentage...
