    After reading the CMF thread, I’m thinking that I handle money really well because I spend nothing at all on cigarettes :-)

    That wealthy bar maid story is a joke. She leveraged two massive mortgages and her parents had to bail her out for a $30,000 repair. And that makes her savvy? Sounds like at least one house was a terribly misinformed business decision. it’s not building your family’s wealth if you can only generate positive cash flow by depending on them and getting $30,000 bailouts from them. On moneyville, it was also asked how much of her tips she’s declaring if her income is so low…

    My post today was a response to the “Wealthy Barmaid” story (albeit, not a nice one!). There are just sooo many flaws in her method.
