No votes yet

GradI understand that what I am about to tell you goes against all the normal career advice you’ve ever been given. It probably goes against what you are already telling your kids, and what you’ve also been telling yourself. So entertain me while I show you some analysis and information describing why your child may be better off not going through the 4-Year college route.  It's possible they may be further ahead to consider getting an Associate's degree....

PasswordIf you’re like me you probably have passwords for nearly everything.  Work email; home email; online forums; banking; ebay; twitter; Facebook; and dozens of others.  As a parent (and a busy one – right) you need to make sure that the cute little techno wizard you’ve raised doesn’t hack into your PC and start using or viewing stuff that you’d rather keep secure.  A good password is important, but a great password is even better.  Here are some hints and tips for you to create secure passwords.....

College Costs HOW Much?! Financial Aid Tips to Prevent You from Losing Your Mind

No votes yet

Today, two-thirds of college students have to take out loans to pay for their education, and the average borrower graduates with close to $27,000 in debt!  Right now, the standard repayment schedule is 10 years – meaning that your kids will likely have kids of their own before their college tuition is paid for!

Wouldn’t it be nice to help them come up with a payment plan that doesn’t need to be paid back (and, no, I’m not talking about winning the lottery, suddenly agreeing to a contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers, or going on a bank robbing spree).
 
Instead, your kids can get scholarships and grants.  Neither has to be paid back.  But to get them, you (and your kids) will have to do some work now, before they head off to school.
 
To make things easier, try some of these tips!

There are a number of tools and graduated cylinders or measuring devices you can use to get the right mixture of oil and gas each time. But what do you do if you don’t have one of those around, or you’ve lost it? Here’s an easy explanation of how to calculate the correct oil mix amounts…
