From their humble beginnings of Pong, Atari, Space Invaders and the forever popular Nintendo Entertainment System, video games have become such an expansive industry, there is something out there for everybody these days. You’ve got computer games, console games, mobile games, even virtual reality games for your phone or computer to choose from. Game systems like Xbox, Sony PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch are always coming out with more engaging and life like games. …


Even though I consider it one of my biggest money mistakes, that doesn’t mean I didn’t learn a few things when getting my Master’s degree. The focus of my degree was a mix between criminal justice and computer forensics (think of crime shows where the good guys scan the bad guy’s laptop to find hidden stuff). Many of my classes involved different theories revolving around crime, why people commit crimes, how people react to crimes, the best ways to stop crime, etc. …


Some people will tell you that if you die penniless or even in debt, you’ve won the game. You lived your life to the fullest and gave a big “screw you” to the man on the way out. I….am not one of those people. For one, your debt doesn’t go away when you do. And two, I want the wealth I’m creating to go beyond my lifetime. I want my kids, my grandkids, and my great-grandkids all to benefit from the foundation I’m trying to lay down. I’m looking to build wealth beyond myself and create generational wealth.

What is Generational Wealth?

A six-figure annual salary has long been the “I’ve made it” status symbol for anyone in the workforce. Something special happens to our psyche between a $99,999.99 salary and an even 100k. We feel better, stand taller, and overall have a feeling of satisfaction from our careers.

There is nothing wrong with being proud of a six figure yearly income, as it’s certainly an accomplishment. However, it’s not everything. For one, you don’t need one to become wealthy, and if just because you have one doesn’t make you rich.

There are already many good reasons why you should be healthy, but I’ll add one more to the list. Being healthy can help make you wealthy.

How often do you stop to think about why you do things the way you do? It’s very possible you have a good reason, but do you remember what that is? Sometimes we get so set in our ways; it’s hard to remember why that’s our way in the first place.

Sometimes we don’t know the reason why we do things the way they are done at all. It could be a personal way of doing things or at work, but an answer of “that’s just how it’s always been done” can be rather frightening. …


When it comes to our financial health, our credit score often tends to take center stage. The problem is, our credit score isn’t a gauge of how well we are doing financially, but many people believe it to be. If you have a poor credit score, more than likely, you’ve made a few mistakes, but having a high credit score doesn’t mean your finances are in order; it just means they aren’t a mess.
