6% of the wealthy say what’s on their mind vs. 69% for the poor. Maybe listening well can help improve your finances!

Say NO to Overdraft Protection

To avoid overdraft fees, call your bank and opt out of overdraft protection, review your spending, and create a budget to protect yourself from going negative!

Saving on Electricity: Flat Billing Pitfalls

Even though you’re on a flat rate plan, electric and gas companies set the rate assuming you will be using lots of electricity or gas during the summer or winter months. Ask your electric and gas company about penalties for changing to a standard plan before your 12-month period expires.

Saving on Electricity: Is Flat Billing Good for Your Budget?

Before you opt in to a "flat billing" plan, ask the necessary questions to understand refunds and usage policy! If you don’t ask the right questions, your budget will suffer!

Cut Cost on Security Alarms: Home Insurance Discount!

You will often get a 15% or 20% discount on your home insurance for having an alarm system.

Cut Cost on Security Alarms: No Contracts!

If someone tries to sell you on a long-term contract, run! Nowadays there are plenty of reliable companies that will offer you a no-contract monthly fee service.

Debt Consolidation: Is it Smart?

If you are thinking about debt consolidation, make sure you stop acquiring new debt, create and follow a budget to help you live within your income, and use your “extra” cash for savings or additional debt payments.

Whole Life Insurance: What You Need to Know

In whole life insurance, benefits and premium cost are fixed, premium cost is much higher than in term life insurance, and often the expenses of whole life insurance eat up any potential investment.

Wealth vs. Income
