Distribute it across a few of my more liquid investments, which have been earning 12%, 7%, and 6% each for me.

I have my PMP certification... and you're right, it's a lot of work to get. To be honest, whether or not it is worth it for you depends a lot on the position you're going for. Some employers put a lot of emphasis on it, and some could care less. I would recommend that you vet this out before commiti...

Great thread... salary adjustment is a really common problem that affects many of us. It's interesting to see the different ways people are approaching it. For my own personal situation... I chose to leave a job with a high-paying base salary and go to a startup with some potential for major bucks i...

Speaking of useful calculators, Bankrate.com has a ton of them. You should check them out... some are more useful than others, but they can easily be embedded in blogs and websites as well, if you run one.

Sounds like a good solution to me. The increased amount you're paying each month seems minimal compared to the increased rate at which you're gaining equity.

Do any of you travel every week, like I used to do? Here's one you can try... I used to be 'Platinum' at a couple of hotel chains (Starwood and Hilton). You can actually call up other hotel chains and request that they match your status. Many of them will, some won't. It's a great feeling to check i...

I think the quote has *some* merit, but it only tells one side of the story. College is definitely a time to have fun, but my personal feeling is that one should instill a sense of "work hard, play hard", and there's no better time to do that than college. Those four years can be extremely...

Out of curiosity, why do you need a bachelor's degree?

It's basically a debit card, and comes straight out of your checking or savings account. It's backed by the cash in your account, not by any credit line.

If your wife were to stay at home, and even if you were able to scratch by and somehow get the numbers to work, you would be living on extremely thin margins with very little room for error. One route to consider if you haven't already.... your wife can get a part time job that's close to home. This...

Given that the Roth IRA benefits you down the road, while the lower tuition cost would benefit you immediately, I would opt for paying down the tuition. There's something big to be said about living debt free, and I'm not quite sure if that many people understand it. It frees you up in many differen...

$5000 in cash really isn't that much to be thinking about individual stocks. I recommend investing in some balanced funds.
