“By using an investor’s money, you aren’t completely putting your finances (and future) in danger. Yes, you still have to return the money, and interest is also part of the equation, but you are using money to help you make more money — not spending money on a cruise with a credit card (aka money that was spent, and isn’t coming back).”

*If you are going to go into debt, make sure it is to help you eventually make money.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
