GOOD MONEY GIFT WEEK 19—WOUNDED WARRIORS PROJECT

, , ,

In my free ONE-PAGE / ONE-YEAR PLAN for personal money management, I underscore the importance of giving money to a person or cause at least once a week.

The Wounded Warriors Project’s mission is to help veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound while serving in the military on or after September 11, 2001. If you have not already given at least $7.00 this week to someone or something you care about, I believe that money donated here https://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/  is a good gift for a good cause. See you next week!

GOOD MONEY WORD WEEK 18—LOVE

, , , , , ,

GOOD MONEY WORD WEEK 18—LOVE…a feeling of great interest, affection, or enthusiasm for something. One of the core values of my plan is love. By giving money to others you demonstrate your love for helping them, by saving money you demonstrate your love for helping yourself; because “…where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” See you next week!

GOOD MONEY WORD WEEK 15—NET WORTH

, , , , , ,

GOOD MONEY WORD WEEK 15—NET WORTH… the excess of the value of assets over liabilities. When it comes to owning a home, the net worth is the value of the home minus what is owed on the mortgage. If you home is worth $100,000, but you owe $150,000 on it, you have a net worth of -$50,000. If you home is worth $100,000, but you owe $50,000 you have a positive net worth of $50,000. The difference is critical if the home is damaged sold or the market values go down as they did in 2008.

GOOD MONEY WORD WEEK 14—LIABILITY

, , , , , ,

GOOD MONEY WORD WEEK 14—LIABILITY… something (such as the payment of money) for which a person or business is legally responsible. Last week, I wrote a home can be an asset to its owner, but if there is a mortgage on the property, it is an asset pledged as collateral to the holder of the mortgage. The mortgage is an asset to the lender, but a liability to the borrower. This is not to say you should neither buy a home nor have a mortgage, but you should know which is the liability, and which is the asset.

GOOD MONEY GIFT WEEK 14—IPA SCHOLARSHIP CLUB

, , , , , ,

GOOD MONEY GIFT WEEK 14—IPA SCHOLARSHIP CLUB. The International Police Association’s motto is “servo per amikeco,” service through friendship. The purpose of the Scholarship Club is to support annual scholarships that the U.S. Chapters provide. If you have not already given at least $7.00 this week to someone or something you care about, I believe that money donated to IPA SCHOLARSHIP CLUB https://www.ipa-usa.org/ is a good gift for a good cause. See you next week!

GOOD MONEY WORD WEEK 13—ASSET

, , , ,

ASSET… something that is owned by a person, company, etc. The most common confusion I see with this term involves home ownership. A home can be an asset to its owner, but if there is a mortgage on the property, it is asset pledged as collateral to the holder of the mortgage. The mortgage is not an asset to the home owner, it is an asset to the lender, which is why the interest on the mortgage is income for the lender, not the homeowner. It is an important distinction.
