It’s that time of year: New Year’s Resolution time! I know a lot of you want to get back on the wagon, lose a few lbs., run farther, or just start eating better… and I don’t blame you! I love having a fresh start! After nearly 4 years of NO consistent workouts, lots of rest […]

Are you waiting for a rainy day or planning your SUNNY day?

If you have been with me awhile, you may have ended up on one of my financial webinars, where I shared a pretty personal story from 2011-2012 when my husband and I decided to foreclose on our home in Las Vegas and file bankruptcy, due to the huge down turn in the economy in our […]
