Is Opportunity Knocking in the Financial Markets?

I have been successfully investing for over three decades. Yes, I have made my share of costly “educational” mistakes, but we are still here.

WHY DO WE HAVE DEBT?

Last week, I was sitting with a friend and she was reading my article on buying a house with 20% down. After about two minutes of reading, she goes, “I knew that!” Yet, I know that she didn’t follow the rule. The fact is we all know the rules: pay off debt, don’t get into […]
