Hi guys, Right now my wife has $7500 of student loans. We're paying about $400 a month on these, the interest is around 6%. We're also saving at least $150 a month. Our savings is $8000 currently. Our rent is $650 a month. We've seen some decent town homes in the area for sale - somewhere around 60-...

I got the actual monthly price, including insurances and fees, and mortage payment, and it would be around $500- $600 a month for like a 65 - 70k house (there are some pretty good ones near me for that price).

Ok, here's the situation: Kind of tight budget, I can pay around $550/month payment for rent or buy. Have been approved for a loan, and have seen some houses that are not bad but also in the monthly budget range. Sooo... which is better? I know I'll get a house warrenty if I buy, which would cover a...

Hey, I'm getting married in August, and my fiance has about $6500 in student loans. Now, we're going to file FAFSA together right after we get married, so that we can get benefits based on my salary (instead of her dad's). We have the cash to pay off her student loan right now. I know that the more ...

Well, I passed my first certification exam... MCP 70-20. So now I'm Microsoft certified. And I'm going to start studying again next week. Not quite sure what to study next, I'll determine that this week.

I recommend "best practice" checklists. Every time you make a mistake, journal it and then develop a list or flow chart to help you prevent mistakes of this kind. Then double check your work until the list becomes second nature. You'll be slower at first, but in the long run you'll produc...

So, I'm one mistake away from getting fired... I don't really understand why, but I keep making mistakes. I'll be posting a page to a website and accidently write over the wrong page, or I'll forget to ask someone to make a backup of something, or I'll miss a formatting mistake in an e-mail. So now ...

From my career experience, you can be technically competent at your job and still get passed up for promotions and pay increases. To really get promoted and eventually earn more, you need to be passionate about what you do first. Yeah, I know... I need to play around with networking and routers and...

What kind of certifications are you looking at? Some work for this kind of thing. Some don't. I also think being in graduate school (though I haven't graduated yet) helped me a lot.[/i] Well, I'm working on a Microsoft MCP (70-270) right now. After I get that, I'll really decide whether I want to g...

Thanks for all the comments. I am going to strive hard to get promoted at work, and I will be gaining several important professional IT certifications. I hope that at the end of the three years, I will be able to get a job at another company that pays around $75k. From the job postings I've seen, I ...

So, any ideas on how to double your salary in a few years? I'm working on getting my 37k turned into 75k in three years. I figure with technical certifications + the experiance I'm getting now (and promotions), and added to that some other sources of income (maybe resume writing or stock photography...
