Analysis Paralysis

June 22, 2014

Quit being a wuss. Subscribe to my blog. If you live in The States you’ve probably been to Costco. While the store is practically busting at the seams with stuff, Costco typically only carries about 4,000 unique products behind its walls.

Patience Grasshopper.

May 29, 2014

I’m pretty impatient, this was especially true when it came time for me to work my way out from a $28,000 student loan bill. The only thing I wanted more than being debt free, was to be debt free NOW! My intense desire to get out of debt was the best and worst thing that […]
