unless you get a hog pregnant...
Pretty sure he's telling us to sell our buttholes
My advice to the OP: learn the proper way to punctuate plural or possessive words
No matter what a stripper tells you, there is no sex in the champagne room.
Be EXTREMELY careful about who you make babies with. Actually, if you want to have money don't have kids at all.
Start investing in retirement as early as possible.
Live with roommates for as long as you can put up with it, it's the key to cheap housing. Or live with your parents.
Don't get married. If you do, marry someone who makes more money than you.
Don't build debt, only buy things you need.
Time is money. You can work 80 hours a week and have lots of money but no time to spend it, or you can work 40 hours a week and make less money but enjoy it.
Listen to Dave Ramsey.
Never buy drugs - become a pop star and people will give them to you for free.

if you get married, remember to put your finger in your wife's butthole.
Marry your best friend.
Marry someone you trust implicitly in every single way.
Marry someone you respect.
Marry someone who makes you laugh and loves to laugh every day.
Marry someone who will be an excellent parent.
Marry someone who is responsible with money.
Marry someone who will make you a better person.
And while you are looking for that person, make sure you are becoming that person for someone else.
Looks fade. Unexpected health problems can alter a person's body. But if you marry a person of character who you enjoy being with every day, then you will have a successful marriage.
I've been married to my best friend for almost sixteen years. We are not financially well to do at all. But I wouldn't trade him for any amount of money.
sounds like somebody could use a moderate income sugar daddy.
pics of husband?
He's an average looking guy who spiffs up pretty well.
sounds hot. nice.
"The art of good business is being a good middle man, putting people together."
Control your hoes.
a lesson that fredo corleone had to learn the hard way.
But what about the dudes on here who love their salad tossed? (cough cough Pulling)
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
1. Start an emergency fund.
2. Pay off all debt except your house.
3. Stash at least a few months of expenses in savings.
4. Invest 15% of gross income into retirement plans (401k, IRAs).
5. Once you have kids, start funding the college right away.
6. Pay off your house, early if you can.
7. Continue to build wealth and give.
Don't worry about a few dollars here or there between friends. It'll come back around/
Maybe the best advice I have ever read on this board.
with all that leftover $$ you'll be able to eat mac & cheese every night and get a library card
dance like nobody is fucking your wife in the copy room.
Including @ closing time.
"I think the world is run by C students"
I know. Nobody does it though. They are too busy buying $6 coffees, leasing cars, eating out all the time, and generally living beyond their means.
Then, they wonder why they have nothing at retirement and their kids wonder why they have $80 - 100,000 in student debt at graduation. An emergency happens and then they have to put it on a credit card.
I have a pretty big oppurtunity to take a risk. I am working and living in Kalamazoo right now working under a contract that goes till the end of the year. The company I work for seems to only have a limited chances for permanent employment. I just got a call to be put into a contract job in Lansing that pays slightly less for a project going to March, but there is a realistic chance for permanent hire after that. Job in Lansing is most likley more enjoyable than what I do now.
And I will add to it the difference between have's and have not's is their ability to handle negative feedback. In my work, I give people negative feedback/news all the time. Based on their reaction, I can guess with 95% certainty whether they will succeed the next time around. Those that make excuses for what they did and blame it on everything but themselves will continue to fail, while those that take ownership of the feedback and actively work to improve in that area will naturally succeed.
I would also add the ability to handle positive feedback as well. Those that become cocky and assume it will always come easy will quickly fall behind as they become complacent, while those that remain humble and understand that it was hard-work that got them to succeed will continue to succeed.
