Celebrating Mothers Day

Happy almost Mothers Day. Tomorrow’s Mothers Day and it’s time to celebrate the person that gave birth to you as well as other mom’s in the world.

Mothers are great because they took care of us growing up. They sacrificed and gave us everything they could to make sure we grew up to be the best we could be. It’s time to celebrate what they did for us and what they had to sacrifice for us.

Online Trading Academy recently celebrated mom’s in business and finance by interviewing several moms about their work and how they balance being a mom with it. There’s a lot of good advice you should go look at to see what mom’s have to do to balance life.

One of my favorite ways one of the mom’s, Denise Winston, does to balance work life and family really made sense to me. She said:

As I got older, I realized I was doing my daughter a disservice by “doing” for her all the time. I was unintentionally robbing her of life skills that I hold near and dear (like budgeting, paying bills, etc). Understanding my role as a mother and what my true job was allowed me to provide my daughter with an education that has helped her survive in the real world.

This is great advice. Kids learn best by doing. Even when failing it’s a learning lesson. Too often parents do too much for their kids so when it’s time for the real world they fall hard on their face. You’re not doing your child a favor by doing everything for them. Like Denise said, it’s a diservice.

Go check out what all of the mom’s have to say and be sure to tell your mom you love her and spend some time with her.


Why You Should Check All Of Your Credit Scores is releasing 2 new commercials in  the coming days. You can check them out early on their YouTube channel or right here. The biggest point in their commercials is how you need to know all 3 credit scores instead of just 1.

Different places check different scores so it’s always good to know what to expect. Only knowing one score can get you denied or even a higher interest rate. If you’re in the market for a loan be sure to check all 3 scores. And also check your credit report for free at That way you can get rid of any inaccuracies on your credit reports.


Im Putting It All Out There

I’m a fan of free, especially when it comes to information. Even giving away an email is the same as paying for information.

Since I don’t like that I’ve decided to discontinue my eCourses and post them on here. So in the next several weeks I’m going to be posting the 3 courses that I have available.

The first up is my Do What You Want eCourse. After that will be my Jump Start Your Financial Freedom eCourse, and then finally my Investing eCourse that went along with my Ebook.

Each week I’ll be posting 2 days of the course and these will all go in order as if I was emailing them to you.

For my Do What You Want Course I am going to be updating it and I will be editing a few parts out because that information just can’t be out in the wild. If you sign up for weekly updates via email, you may get some of those secrets.

Anyways, get ready to take notes and to learn what I have to teach you. The posting schedule will be Mondays and Thursdays. This will start on Monday. Be sure to comment on the posts if you have anything to say or have any questions you need answered. I hope you enjoy.
