The Richest Man in Babylon (George Clason) offers advice on gaining wealth as well as developing constructive habits. Og Mandino's books are very good: The Greatest Salesman in the World and The Greatest Miracle in the World are on my bookshelf. They are Christian in the story-telling, but the prin...

I plan to refinance my mortgage sometime during the summer. What's been your experience? What (U.S.) banks and mortgage companies have the best products? Best customer service? What companies should I avoid? Thanks.

I don’t have an answer, but I do have a few questions: Would a Smack-down forum be appropriate for contributors who have need to resolve personal differences, rather than in the context of otherwise interesting topic threads? Would such a forum become a free-for-all, further leading to the degenerat...

Wow, this is really good advice. I wouldn’t refinance now at all. Concentrate on making your payments on time and adding whatever extra principal your budget will allow each month. You’ll save interest in the long term – and improve your credit rating in the short term. Pf101’s recommendation about ...

I'm not a big Dave Ramsey follower JD but I've always liked his car buying/owning philosophy. I did a quick site search and this was the first reference I found: http://www.daveramsey.com/etc/lms/drive_free/.

I've been around long enough to know both high peaks and deep valleys, so I'm pleased to note most stay on the conservative side in their estimates. Having said that, through the long-term the market, even with its big declines, has averaged closer to the top end of Rush's scale. Considering that th...

From my youth, I think I have been generally pretty cautious or prudent in managing money. I encounter people regularly though that, basically, live from paycheck to paycheck. It’s interesting to note that people move from being somewhat careless to financially responsible. I’ve honestly never seen ...

I’m fond of reminding my kids that there are two ways in which to earn income: people at work and money at work. Hence, get a job and continue to learn and improve, increasing your earning ability. Then, put a regular portion of your earnings to work for you by investing it for the long term. Sounds...

We’ve perhaps lost the realization that there is real worth – material value – in something other than money. Not the best reflection on today’s society and culture. Time and talent is still important, beyond one’s regular employment. I’m inspired by those who barter. They’re bucking the trend! I ne...

I think most people have a fundamental desire to help family members, which is good. The question is whether providing money is always "help." I know it's a generalization, but I'm not sure this is the best approach. I have been both a family borrower and a lender (of less than $5,000) in ...

Recently, my son was planning to make a $650 purchase. The dealer offered a $50 discount for full purchase or “same as cash” payments for eight months. He asked what I thought he should do and was surprised when I told him to do both. When he said he had ample savings (beyond emergency needs) to buy...

Hmmmm … Luke, there are many people today who are gainfully employed outside their major field of study. Take those courses that interest and inspire you now. Education sounds like an excellent choice. What will you do as a financial advisor other than teach and motivate people? Here’s a thought tho...

You have a noble ambition Luke. There are many, many people who are in need of real help in managing their finances to achieve their dreams. You evidently have a good deal of knowledge and interest about money management already. Allow me to offer you an insight to a facet of the business that you m...

The principle of insurance is often misunderstood. Basically, you are transferring your risk to an insurance company for a fee (premium). The more you pay, the more risk it will allow you to transfer. What is seldom realized is that the insurance company will defend you, usually at its expense, up t...
