Lastly, watching the estate with just the land, basically. Landon brings five thousand dollars in the boat brings three thousand dollars had more than eight thousand hours or that there is no estate the girl, because we don't have to pay the lawyer for twenty five hundred dollar retired credit around don't herald the crow. If he, if his estate owes
more than it owns. I would this with it. Don't pay, two thousand dollars. To close When a state that makes absolutely no money for you guys the creditors or get paid before you do.

You know what brings you out two hundred via rodeos, Emily S lasting thousand dollars in that then you shall off everything he owned and it only rings. Eight thousand dollars was not even enough there to pay his debts. You get zero right am. I missing something. Others. I make two thousand and nine and missing something about you. State.

What you do need is Unita, get the money that you have with the income, you have unless first create an emergency fund out that fifteen thousand- and we can call them five thousand dollars at our emergency fund, and that leaves you ten thousand begin investing for the future, but now you do not need to buy this piece of ground. You do not need to build a house on it, and indeed me to spend a bunch of money trying to settle on the state that you're gonna get nothing out of. If there's more things that he owned that you're not talking about that. You have more than fifteen thousand dollars worth of things to sell off the pay off them
Ten thousand dollars in that then you might not something, but on a dozen with you have described to me- you're, not getting anything others estate and that's you don't know anything but dont pay an attorney twenty five hundred dollars to get you nothing and do nothing.

I got a car wreck or something and so the I would do a mirror image will in those cases, because it saves money in the process. If your, if you don't ever, wills done hit, Mama bear legal forms, dot, com and then We get him down, but a mirror image means that you don't have unique, separate plans, your statement, overlap with the exception of new knowledge cut and paste. If you die, she gets everything she does. You get everything and if you both diet, to have the same plan and That's the essence of a mirror image will,
Brianna is weathers in New York. Hey Brianna Welcome, but that I am sure, Thank you for taking my car sure up. I just have a question about credit. Scores My husband is originally from Australia. Got married about four years ago, and now he has his green cards. Originally before getting into your plan. We got him a credit card, obviously with a very low limit, confuse basically starting like a new person in America Tina. The school, and then we started listening to you and scratch that, on scared about not having a credit score. I was just wondering if you can give me some advice on what I can kind of have you to say it's: ok, not to have a credit card, so You started on our plan. What you mean by that.
Now we have a thousand dollars and savings, and now on babies up to then I'd get out of there. Why? Yet? I urge you to try to get a cause. I went from blowing wildly or by reason to get out of it with you. On the same page, we both realise that a saving account once more, my fourteen thousand to like thousand in the matter of a year- and we didn't know why So about eating out occasioning all that further. I'm getting on a larger than are you getting out a dad, I'm just hopefully become a millionaire. One day start a family. How does he think that two, yes is dad back home that he wants to pay off just pay off The show he at least up of him believe
and you like. I do that. Shortish paths to wealth is to not have debt, correct, ok, and so how is that congruent? How is that consistent with wanting a credit score, because the only reason I have a credit scores to borrow money trail. He's nervous about whenever we buy a house in the future. We own a house now that I purchased- or he was even in the picture, though he's nervous is that wall? You know how, We'll have an issue buying a home if we don't have credit cores have you all heard of, heard me discuss manual underwriting. You go yeah a mortgage company that works for people at all. Scores like Churchill Mortgage and they. They were traditional underwriting method that does not involve a credit score and allows you to get a mortgage at exactly the same interest rate you would have if you had a premium credit score, have you heard
Disgusting. Yeah, I listened to your boss- has only discuss not yet show he's dealing with partial partial information that because he's worried about getting a home so things I'm going to bed, but yet to get out of that cause. That's not good, but go into debt, so there I can get more that later in the form of a house, because I don't I can get a mortgage without if I come score. Which is incomplete information. That's not the devil. Those aren't facts. You understand, yeah, In the sense that sounds like you guys, new talk through an end to understand the UK get a mortgage without a fight. And its base, You know you don't wanna have a meter. Vital score? You wanna have a huge one or zero. The good news with him, as he didn't have much of a psycho scores, won't be hard to destroy it.
You wanted to go to now. What. What about me with, like us, seven hundred and something score, and now we're going through this whole plan. When you pay off all of you, the one hundred percent and all the accounts are closed. No outstanding debt of any kind. Now you have a mortgage on your car home correct. Are you under my name, your credit score is going to continue to be. There It will draw up as you pay off these, but it won't rob so low that will keep you from getting a house. Is larger, keep your home paid on time, but if you like, pay off a credit card and closed that account, it will drop your psycho score right, I'm open and open until that, no, no, no we're playing with that, inconsistent. You cannot tell me in the first five minutes of our conversation that you want to get out of that.
Abolish snakes in your house. You ve gotta, stop it, you gotta, stop it! Who is going to provide for you? You are fight As you think, Psycho is your provider, then you need to stay in debt and need a play footsie with fighter. But if I can your provider, only we fight provides you anything. Is you go in bed I'll get a car is going debt than you keep playing with fire go, but we Finally understand that the only way you get a car where you're gonna become millionaires, you pay cash for the car and you're not going to payments than you. Don't need five go to buy you a car, you buy you a car. So what's the source of your success in the future, you are five go and this the decision you have to make out loud and you can't do it does What I teach he's gonna take five away from you so should fully embrace stupidity and go heavily in debt and key If I go score up- or
You need to go extreme. The other way, there's not really safety. In the middle doing a little above a little fight. All obey, we'll get you kill, don't live, don't run, live in the middle. You don't get ugly booth.

Let's era, debt he's got three two one I'm at dawn, Roger Baby, oh yeah, Oh fine well done well done it, like when I'm on social media or when I'm getting a hate me out of our mailbox, Half of all or most of America seems to be full of people. Who. Are angry because they got themselves in that and they feel stock that they. Get themselves out, and Our suggestions are ridiculous. Things we teacher are ridiculous. And on their just. Plus, and it's really sad when
compare them to the people like can I, on the show nothing hopeless. In her life. Her dollars per her ability to compete track, went away due to an injury What was her reaction to that. She usually extra time off to make money to pay for her groundwork. Oh my cache She was not a victim sheet, The problem into actually a blessing extra time off to go.

All she did- was gonna work. You want our work. May you it takes to pay off. Two thousand dollars making. Seventy you have to take taxes out that seventy you have to eat and pay rent and put guy Senor car to go to work to get the seventy.

But she said: I'm I'm, I'm I'm gonna get this over with I'm gonna get this behind me. I am in charge of my destiny, I am not a victim. I am a victory for
big difference. People decide that I know. Sometimes you get big down, get beat up, but then don't get angry at everybody else, get angry at the situation and go be thick thorius. This is that I am shocked.
Our structure that I proverbs twenty one in five appliances, diligently, surely to abandon, but everyone on this hasty term, wrongly depositing my friends Ramage managers when people are financially invested, they want to return.

In addition to possibly taking on more work like, I said, while planning a wedding, I'm willing to do it. I just wanna be saying about it and I'm curious what you have to say about it. I think I am.
Priority number one is your current job. It cannot suffer. Priority number two is continuing on your studies and right next to it is spread. Three finishing the wedding planning right show was Extra work is the least important in the overall priorities, but sure would be nice to have some extra money to throw at the wedding and at a dead end. If you look at it that way, then you need to be stressed about the your work and you say: okay, I mean the gunners is your nurse. You can do wacky stuff with extra work right there. And so you can to save my work. Three Saturday's. Or I'm gonna work, I'm gonna work. The weekends and he are or whatever and other two weakens or not, and if you get yourself to deep into stop right there
the work we have to start freaking out I'll give you study, started suffering or you're. Not able do your regular job because you workin too much on the sad gig then you'd have you know you have to pull back or stop And so you can that Canada the sect, because it's not a priority, you I have to. Be said Anne and be tender with the second job you can slap at around and make it do what you wanted to do that magazine, lower yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah I have.

There, too, to the extent that you, physically and mentally, can do that without causing the other stuff to fall apart, but I wouldn't work a Saturday Sunday, twelve every single weekend, I think think my brain would be frightened. I couldn't get much not even further oh yeah. I didn't want to get off track on their wedding, other studies and we certainly don't want to lose your main day. Job gazette you're at your career. This pay for all the other stuff by the way are being very kind to you.
