    What amazes me most about entrepreneurs is their perseverance and their ability to whole-heartedly and completely believe in their ideas. Such traits should be admired by the masses.

  • Frugal Friday

    Ever think that allocating a particular day to save your money is a good choice? Well, it is. Similar to dieting, one should fast at least one day a week in order to revamp itself a bit, to settle. The same goes for your money. Let the dust settle a bit. The week is over, re-charge. Relax. It wouldn’t hurt to spend the night with friends by cooking a meal with ingredients found in your cupboard, or to crack open a bottle of wine that is slightly dusty. Use what you’ve got. Just because your not spending dollars does not mean you are not spending quality time with yourself or others. Humans accumulate so many things over the course of a lifetime. Why not be a bit creative and think of ways to utilize items that we already have?

  • Is it Worth Being Cheap?

    To describe someone as cheap is equivalent to using a derogatory term. Nobody likes being labeled as cheap.
