Credit Reports (Part 1)

Years ago, it occurred to me that we all need to know something about credit, and how credit reports are made.  I put together a CD for clients explaining credit reports.  Now with advances in the web, I can get it to you without a CD! I hope this 12 part series is of use to you. Immediately thereafter, I will publish my 11 part series on credit report correction.

Here is the first audio clip.  Hope you can find the time to listen to the whole series.  There is a lot of good information in these old CDs from several years ago, still relevant today.

Planning the use of money (Part 6)

By now, if you have reviewed the five videos in previous blog posts, you should have a fair idea of where your money is going, and where it needs to go. Now comes the hard part: actually making the necessary decisions.  Some expenses will definitely have to be modified.

Remember: every dollar saved is a dollar earned.  Indeed, the dollar saved is an “after tax” dollar, all of which you get to keep.  The dollar earned is a “before tax” dollar, and you will only get to keep 70 cents of it, at most.  So we can see that keeping expenses down definitely helps in money terms.

In personal terms, the stress that comes from unpaid bills is removed.  Family life is easier, and there is time for exercise and good diet.  Medical bills are less in the long term.  Although this is not true in every case, a simple budget can often help to organize and reduce stress in many other areas of life.

So make your life easier with a budget!  If you want the sample file I used to create these videos in MS Excel, just email me at
