If you owe back taxes, the IRS may put a lien against your property.

One of my favorite jobs in college was working as a virtual assistant. I made great part-time money and worked from home. Working as a virtual assistant isn’t for everyone. It’s essentially office work being done at home, but it’s really inspiring to see how a successful business runs. There are so many benefits to working as a virtual assistant, but you may find that it’s not for you. We’re going to figure out whether […]

That is why I have it as part of my asset allocation strategy and why I have written several blog posts about it. But how do you know if you should invest in a specific project? How do you evaluate crowdfunding projects? Should you just aim for the project with the highest returns? Or […]

People want money I recently spoke to someone on Twitter who confronted his financial advisor about the exceptionally high commission on their entire fund value. The FA eventually just shrugged and said: “Well, we all need to live!”. This is true – we all need to live. And we need money for living.  People want to get paid. Whether it’s through active or passive means, they will go to great lengths to get more cash. […]

Kayla, wife and mother of three, discusses her recent mindset transformation with Jillian.

I very proudly drove these cars because it was a badge of frugality and how woke I was to my finances. It showed the world, myself and to […]

Who wouldn’t want to try out a simple strategy that helps them make more money? This is the strategy I have been using for the past 6 years. I was taught it when I was an intern at a wealth management firm outside of Boston. These advisors […]

I love our dividend stock portfolio! Dividend income is my favorite form of income because it is very passive. I don’t have to do much and the dividends will keep rolling in AND grow. I used to like rental properties as well, but they are too much work for me now. These days, I don’t have time or to be a DIY landlord anymore. That’s why I invest in Real Estate Crowdfunding. I can benefit […]
