For those who are struggling in a formal... read more

My philosophy is to treat each student as an individual, with their own style of learning, level of knowledge and motivation. Associated with that, I focus on creating relevance in subjects to the aspirations of that person. My bottom line objective is to build their self-confidence. Learning is an ongoing process. It provides ways to look at any problem. I have discovered that while earning... read more

With my CA state investment license (Series 6/63), I've learned that most families lack one of the four essential "legs" to enjoying a stable financial future: 1. An emergency CASH FUND (3 months income) in case of unforeseen "rainy day" events (so you won't tap your credit or investments) 2. A strategic method to PAY OFF DEBTS much more quickly than you thought possible... read more

If we have more cash coming in than cash going out, we call that Cash Flow Positive. If cash out is more, we call that Cash Flow Negative. We can be negative from time to time, but not for too long or if we don't balance it out with periods of positive. Over that past 20... read more

Perform journal entries. Journal entries will affect two accounts (one debit; one credit) in the same dollar amount. Journal entries serve to make it easier to accurately produce T-Accounts.
