Perusing the CNN Money section before checking in to dreamland does not constitute "light" bed-time reading. Instead i have been having mini panic attacks at 3am in the morning about how i managing my money.
After reading everything under the sun about how to manage your money, where best to put your money, whether to save and clear debts or clear debts before saving, i still feel relatively clueless.
One of my girl's claims i'm over-reacting and after giving her a run-down of my situation offered some advice...but i feel like i am chasing my tail either way.
Financial advisors charge ridiculous amounts of money to spew forth what you can read up by yourself anyway. I also think they're too detached, i feel like i should trust and know (to a certain degree) the person who's providing me some monetary direction.
If only Suze Orman was my BFF and i could interrogate her over tea *sigh*
Bottomline: I need a clear and concise monetary plan. My end goal is not to become a paper chaser, but to use the little i have wisely....money is the great enabler after all.
I'll figure it out i guess....but in the meantime; what's the best money advice you've ever received, read or given?
Taking the plunge: As a good friend of mine so delicately informed me, " you need to stop making excuses and grab life by the fu*ken horns."
Eish tough words to hear, but not something i did't already know. So no more ummming and hmmming...appointments have been made, meetings have been scheduled, game plans have been drawn up. Will keep you informed as i cross off my to-do-list accordingly
