If you could.....

Happy August everyone, we hope you've had a great summer!

As we start moving into fall and 'back to school' season, we wondered, if you could give a piece of advice to your younger self, what would it be?

Myself, I wish that I could have told myself how credit works and to start building it responsibly earlier.

What about you?

    I would tell myself not to take life so seriously and have more fun.

    My dad and I were very close and therefore we pretty much knew what the other one was thinking and feeling, so in some cases I didn't voice what I was thinking just assuming that he knew.  I think I would voice those things to make sure.

    Learn to enter every transaction into my checkbook register so I don't go overdrawn. That costs too much $$$

    Maybe they should teach that in school: Personal Money Management 101

    Gee, I always hear that as "Don't sweat the petty stuff ... and don't pet the sweaty stuff".

    Live for today! You can't "fix" yesterday and there is no sense in worrying about tomorrow.
