5 years ago I left the military and started a job at a biomedical technology company. I made a friend there who had been there a year longer than me and we were making about the same salary. Since then I’ve worked at 2 other companies before finally landing at a AAA tech company that feels like a real career. He stayed at the smaller biomedical company. I currently make $13 more an hour than he does with far better benefits because I didn’t settle. I recently offered to help him get a job at my company and once he got the job offer he turned it down because he believes they’ll eventually promote him. This is the lie that companies depend on their employees believing. The 1-4% annual raises are the carrot on a stick that keep you running on the wheel. Don’t be afraid of change. If you know ...

This was amazing advice my lawyer gave me when I got divorced. Each of them billed $250 an hour.

LPT: When buying a car (not leasing) ask the dealership if they have any “rewinds” (most of them call it this): These are newly leased or bought cars that got returned for finance reasons, in under a year. They usually sell for 8-10% less and are still brand spanking new.

LPT: thinking about investing but find it confusing or too risky? Well, dont invest. Instead just take that money, and pay more than your minimum balance on your credit cards or car payments

Even though it may feel like there is “no return” or “no gain” from it, or may feel like you are throwing money away, its not. Not only will paying credit off early free up hundreds, or even thousands of dollars every month, since you will no longer have monthly payments, but if you pay it off early you will literally save thousands on interest. Meaning, you get the car, or whatever cheaper than what you and the banks agreed too. Who wouldnt want that? Saving money is the same as gaining money, dont just “get used” to your monthly payments and stick with them, pay off early if possible, future you will love you for it. submitted by /u/thee-chum [link] [comments]
