It is relatively easy to find out what you need to know about any topic thanks to the internet. We can look up how to spell words, how to pronounce words, find the location of a city anywhere in the world. Never been to Mexico, no problem we can google away and find which countries border Mexico, see the location of the beaches, the major cities, the highlands and any large lakes.

She needed to accept that she had to continue on her journey independently, which meant learning how to manage her life, finances and retirement on her own. Through these learnings and life lessons, Ann made a great deal of mistakes, so she began to join groups and attend meetings and seminars, in order to obtain advice from people with experience and knowledge. www.retirewellretirehappy.com
Macy Miller from http://minimotives.com/ believes that less is more. Macy set herself the goal to build her own tiny house this enabled her to become debt free in 8 months. The little house keeps giving as Macy is also able to save $2,500 per month on bills that she used to pay. Macy lives in her tiny house with her partner, small child and a Great Dane dog. It is a
fantastic example of thinking outside the square. We can get burdened down with housing debt but if we have clear goals for saving then perhaps we can take off those rose tinted glasses and have a fresh look at our destination and how we can get there quicker.
