Friday finances

So I heard a lot of chanting at school yesterday about tomorrow (today) being pay day, Woot!  Ha, That doesn't mean a lot to me but some of those teachers make good money and b/w that and the slip ins about money in a couple threads here I thought a thread would be fun..

How often are you/your DH paid

Do you discuss finances with your children?  To what extent?

Are you a spender or a saver

All you "ladies" are so horrible to each other. Why would you treat another woman that way?

I've never said my husband is a pastor. I have said he works 60-80 hrs a week as a financial advisor. How exactly could he juggle that and ministry is a bit beyond my scope of understanding. We are involved in church. But I'm not sure at all how that pertains to the debate at hand...-Yes you said your husband is a pastor.  A jack of all trades LOL Travels and doesn't have time for you.

Financial planners only help people with debt? Since when?

Regina, it's 12% of their current income, not 25%. Which is excellent! (But math is math)-I heard it was 3000% LOL.  Love the internet.  Every thing is rosy.

R-With your company match, that's almost 25% of your current income. You are the type of clients he likes.--And never gets LOL. Financial planners only help people in debt and clean up their messes. There's no money there. People with money invest on their own because they can or they degreed professionals who invest.  Financial planners don't invest. They're a last resort before bankruptcy

Reginageorge -

Because people like you who don't get it make it easier for those of us who do. That's why. And you proved you don't get it when you said you deduct your mortgage from your taxes. B/c if you're deducting your mortgage from your taxes, the IRS is going to want to have a word with you. And your CPAs...

It's like the proverbial candy from a baby, G-money. - No one ever got rich being a financial advisor or planner.  They help people in debt with no money to pay.  Another words CPAs have a skill for people with money.
