I read an article about making creative "risky investments" and buying assets to pay for your toys and luxury items. This reminds me of Kiyosaki and his Rich Dad Poor Dad non-realistic ideas (which he of course made millions selling books and seminars about). What do you guys think this? h...

Do you have any other programs you may have started years ago and forgotten? (maybe though a former work place etc). Sometimes these programs had great conditions locked in, and would be better than any program you could open these days.

It's really up to you to decide. I think the list peterjon posted is a nice rule of thumb. Also, take into account the level of life you would like to live after retirement (I.E retirement homes, travel etc) and see what level of saving will get you there. As others mentioned, it's also a question o...

I recently have felt very lost. I'm a computer repair tech, but I've hated the tech jobs I've had--not because of the technical component, but other aspects. I even semi-successfully ran my own business for a while, but hated it too! I was not good at it, I have trouble saying no to unreasonable re...

Things that made a big difference for me: - Wake up early, and get the most important things done before noon. - After you finish planning, make sure you concentrate at the task at hand at any given time and do what you planned. (gets much easier to do once you have it planned) Another thing is try ...

What do you mean being just "theories" and not a fact?

Nothing is fact, everything is a theory :-) (that's a theory too)

Cars these days have great warranties and financing. So in my case I'd go with the saying :"I'm not wealthy enough to buy cheap". I'd rather get a new reliable car with a 5 year warranty, paying a small monthly fee than buying a used car for half the price, and risking things going wrong d...

Do you have any specific concern about their financial well being? (I.E they are not going to have big enough savings to last them a long time into retirement)

Or is it more of a general what if kind of thing?

Personally, in my family these things are pretty open.

Many state schools have a lot of financial aid programs, practically giving students free education demonstrating financial need. After the 1'st year and pending academic achievements, a lot of scholarships also open up. I've known people who covered 100% of their tuition & board through grants ...

I would also say the mindset is very different...entrepreneurs usually start out new business ideas without knowing if they are going to pan out, whereas freelancers just decide to work at their profession and be their own bosses. Kind of like creating a job for yourself vs creating a new business T...
