Memories can be so fond to recant, but some of them we have taken for gospel truth and never stopped to consider whether or not they were true because of the age we heard them. The information was from an adult, so certainly it was true, right? Well kids, let me tell you “it’s time to clean the proverbial attic” and stop blaming the mess for the cobwebs we’ve accumulated. You’re a grown-up now and those old addages should be packed into a box forever so you can think for yourself!
Unless you still anticipate your parents cleaning up your face when you’re all done with “din-din,” it’s time you accepted responsibility for where you are financially and create a whirlwind of profit for yourself, because you can! In fact, I would suggest reading Dave Ramsey’s “Financial Peace.” You can get it for free from the county library, and while you’re at it, you can use a separate piece of paper and answer his workbook questions. You’ll be glad you did!
