Grasping the Reality of your finances

100 dollar bill editHaving a realistic scope of your finances is a healthy way to take a step toward a debt free life. Many years a ago, Donald Trump (before he was as successful as he is today) made the comparison between himself and a debt free homeless man. He said if he were to give the homeless man one dollar that the homeless man is technically richer than he was at the moment.  You may think that doesn’t make sense. Essentially a lot of us live a life that is in the negative when it comes to our finances. We buy our cars, homes, clothes, furniture, appliances and sometimes even our vacations on credit. And we are simply surviving by making minimum monthly payments laced with interest charges. Real money is the money that we actually have in our bank accounts that we earned. Imaginary money is our line of credit and our overdraft accounts. I have seen it time and time again in which the bank gives larger and larger overdraft limits and credit card companies increase card limits. When these increases occur, it does not mean that we now have more money. Remember that money is imaginary, again what we actually have is what is in our bank accounts (or in some old school cases, hidden in the mattress.) I am not saying that credit is a bad thing, however if we assess what we actually have, we can better access what we can afford to actually buy. We have often heard experienced financial analyst and economic geniuses like Suze Orman, tell us to live within our means. Today let’s take the time to determine what our means actually are rather than the imaginary money we believe them to be. Happy savings!!!

The form has to register people as users in Joomla, and cause an CODE welcome email, as well as a notification to an admin about the registration… We have tried community builder, but you can’t turn off things like login name, which is definitely irrelevant to me, and the pleasant emails refuse to do HTML… Any suggestions?.
