I work for a provider of store brand credit cards (think Victoria's Secret, Banana Republic, etc.). The average time it takes a customer to pay off a singlepurchase is six years. And these are cards with an APR of 29.99% typically.
From my own research, it seems like accounting, IT related, some trade, and vocational nurse degrees are the best bet. What do y'all think? I'm trying to make some real progress in pay without taking on debt.
I need advice and resources. His mom is moving to Florida with her new husband and baby. I won custody and am looking for advice and resources to help and make a low income father's life more manageable. Anything helps, thanks for the replies.
Didn't expect this to blow up like it did. Thanks to everyone who replied. I really appreciate the support.
If you're just starting out, remember that it took your parents decades to collect all the furniture, decorations, appliances, etc you are used to having around. It's easy to forget this because you started remembering things a long while after they started out together, so it feels like that's how a house should always be.
It's impossible for most people starting out to get to that level of settled in without burying themselves in debt. So relax, take your time, and embrace the emptiness! You'll enjoy the house much more if you're not worried about how to pay for everything all the time.
Looking to make a little extra income as a side job after my full day gig is over and also on weekends. Was thinking of doing transcription, but not sure where to begin. If anyone knows of any legitimate part time work from home jobs that does not require selling items I'd appreciate it!
EDIT: just wanted to say I am very overwhelmed by the amount of comments on this post. Please know I am reading each of your comments. Thank you all for your insight! I really didn't think this post would have so many ideas!
I have the cash on hand so I’d like to sign up for a travel rewards card of some sort to make this purchase with in order to take advantage of their teaser rewards. Whatever will yield the most in either airfare or hotel stays is what I’m after.
I am 19 years old and in an apprentice program to get my lobster license. I'm making really good money and have a bunch saved but I don't have any credit. How can I raise my credit to get a loan for a boat in the next few years?
