This week’s roundup is in honor of my hometown New Orleans Saints. WHO DAT. The Saints have gone through a rough offseason this year. If you have not heard by now, the head coach Sean Payton is suspended for the season. Team general manager and linebacker’s coach is suspended for several games as well. Two players are also suspended. If you read the headlines and hear what some of the so called football experts are saying, the Saints may not have a good team. But I pretty sure this team will step up and do what they have to do to win. They will not let these distractions prevent them from trying to achieve their ultimate goal of reaching the Super Bowl this year. Which by the way will be played in New Orleans. We should all apply the same strategy when dealing with our finances. You can not let distractions prevent you from reaching the financial goals you set for yourself. So step up and take some action to begin simplifying your personal finances.
Enough about the Saints. Here are this week’s posts I read that can help you simplify:
