Roth IRA

I don’t know if I’ve ever loved Girl Ninja more than I do right now! On last months, Net Worth Update, I predicted my NW would go down by three thousand dollars after some wedding/honeymoon/moving expenses. Fortunately, Girl Ninja, coupled with some Stock Market positivity, actually helped my NW increase! Totally not expected, but I’m […]

Crappy Advice

Have you ever noticed the disclaimer I have in the left column (towards the bottom) of my blog? I put that disclaimer up for one reason….every other blog I read has one. Do I really need it though? If I didn’t have it, and someone followed my advice and wasn’t happy with the outcome, could […]
