Often we go to interviews prepared to answer questions but rarely prepared to ask questions. Asking questions shows your interviewer true interest in the position and wanting to be hired. Here is the thing, you cant just ask any thing. I have conducted a few interviews and the candidates who researched the company I worked for at the time and asked good questions always stood out above the rest. Surprisingly, most people don’t ask good questions or questions at all. In many cases, those who did not ask questions or the type of questions asked either led me to think they just wanted a job.. any job or that they were arrogant.
I see people online say things like “we need to hold each other accountable” and “I wanna save money.” There is a lot of what I want to do and a lot less of I am actually doing.

A friend of mine was telling about this cool thing her friend was doing for her daughter. Although neither me nor my friend are parents, we geeked out at this cool potty training money saving technique. Her strategy not only teaches her daughter to use the bathroom like a boss but also the value of money. She called it Potty Pennies or Penny Dollars.
So, here you are in all your budgeting glory getting your adulting on but you realize there is still room to save more money to put towards your financial goals. Typically you would think this is a easy fix, save the money and do what you have to do, right? Yes, until you realize what you would have to give up to save that money… YOUR SPACE!
I’m a dork, I make an honest living and I don’t complain. I am nice and good to people even strangers. I don’t waste my money on silly fads because I don’t want to fit in and I want to stand out. I like to read and not just books about sex. I don’t have crazy piercings or tattoos, I’m just plain.
So as I am mentally preparing myself for this fast, I have so much other stuff happening. I am in desperate need of some calm. I haven’t had time to budget, clean, wash clothes, or even be normal. I decided in order to allow this fast to work the way I need it to work I must reset everything. It would be like washing your clothes and not drying them before putting them back on.
To be truly honest with myself, some characteristics I think I have, I don’t. I would like to think of myself as patient but I’m nowhere near as patient as I think.
