That is their nature and that should have been something you learned before you got it. If this is your first time hearing about it, don’t worry and more importantly, don’t run.

  • How Much Should I Save Per Paycheck To Reach My Retirement Goals?

    This question is another tricky one because it depends on who is asking it. If you’re 18 and asking this question, well, I’d say you’re starting off right by asking, and if you are putting away 10% – even if you’re only making $20,000 per year, you’re saving $2,000/year and in 50 years you’d be […]
