Children … They provide us with a sense of pride that is unmatched.

Children are also QUITE annoying, sticky and interrupt you constantly.Continue reading “The Joy and Annoyance of Kids – with Clint Edwards”
In 2010, my wife Nicole and I got married and started our lives together. Financially speaking, we both really enjoyed the DINK (double income with no kids) status in our first year of marriage.

But something was looming that I hadn’t addressed … My mountain of debt that I brought into the marriage.Continue reading “4 Newlywed Debt Destruction Tips”
A few years ago, Nicole and I finally completed our last will and testament. We procrastinated for the better part of two years because we were binge watching Game of Thrones and House of Cards. Excuses yes, but these are some epic shows!
I’ve been looking for a fun creative outlet for a while now.
