re: Renegging on Accepted Job Offer - kaaj24
As a hiring manager I would rather someone not start. It takes time and effort to train someone and if they end up leaving in 6 months or a year it definitely isn't beneficial from the company's perspective. Provide an honest response to the hiring manager. Within the last 3 months I had someone ...

re: For the posters "of a certain age", how have you found a balance in your life? - kaaj24
For me it's been finding hobbies and interests outside of work that allow me to balance and making sure that those items are a priority. I don't put in the hours I used to as I realized that people take you for granted when you do, come to expect it and your raise in corporate America isn't that ...

re: Just counseled someone stuck in the Pay day lending cycle - kaaj24
Luckily my wife doesn't have much interest in seeing our total net worth or financial assets. I don't hide it but I would never voluntarily disclose it either. I want us always to live below our means so we can retire earlier....

re: Best kind of dog food - kaaj24
I feed my 3 dogs Pro Plan, chicken and rice. They seemed to like it. Coats are nice. I tried the grain-free products and they barely would eat it. 30 years ago dogs did good on Purina so I'm sure a lot of this product differentiation is marketing....

re: Just counseled someone stuck in the Pay day lending cycle - kaaj24
Unfortunately, most people aren't good with money. Some can improve their financial discipline many never will. It's just like when people are overweight. Majority is due to the fact they eat too much and exercise infrequently.Still they don't change their intake or exercise patterns knowing full...

re: Wise friends of the MB: Am I anywhere close to buying a home? - kaaj24
I would save up more money for a down payment on a home. Plus if it's your first home you'll have to furnish, buy a lawn mower. All that stuff adds up real fast. Will oil prices being down in BR soften up the real estate market there? ...

re: What percentage of people in BR have a "keeping up with the Jones" lifestyle? - kaaj24
I don't worry about Mr. and Mrs. Jones. I do spend a little and save more and that makes me happy. I'm not offended by people who spend lavishly as long as they're paying their bills and not blaming anybody or looking for a handout when they can't pay for their shite....

re: Question about Credit Utilization - New Card Holder - kaaj24
With a $500 limit, I would just focus on paying balances timely. Then you're line of credit should increase in 6 - 12 months or so. Ask for limit increase. If you're limit increases you're utilization rate will decrease assuming spend stays the same. You can make multiple payments during the mont...
