In a previous installment of Credit Tip Tuesday we talked about the importance of monitoring your credit. If you're doing so and you've had some hiccups you may have seen "charge-off" or some variation of such somewhere on your report.  So what exactly does this mean?1. A charge off is not a forg...
I was inspired to write this after reading another Active Rain blog.  Everyone has barriers, obstacles, pitfalls in their life from time to time.  What separates successful people is what they do when faced with said obstacles.  I have to admit that I haven't always handled it the right way.Whene...
Last year around this time, while I was still reeling from the loss of my daughter Abby I became connected with another family that had been touched by childhood cancer.  Fortunately their cancer story had a better outcome than ours.  Little Baylee was diagnosed as a toddler with a rare form of L...
Well I couldn't think of anything to blog about today so I just figured I'd start a new weekly series called "Friday Funny."  We presumably all have Facebook accounts and quite often something rather humorous comes across our news feed.  I happen to follow a couple of sites that deal with "textin...

Each month I've used my Active Rain blog to feature a business that went above and beyond for us.  If you're not aware of the story, in September of 2013 my then 8 year old daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia. She fought valiantly for 7 months before losing her battle in April of 2014.  Througho...
For this week's installment of Credit Tip Tuesday I thought I'd go back to the most basic of all questions, what is a FICO score?  FICO is an algorithm developed by the Fair Isaac Corporation that analyzes your credit profile and produces a score based on a number of factors.  Some of these facto...
With the unanimous passage of the zoning change by the Phoenix City Council the Veiw 32 luxury apartment complex is now fully approved.  This is the first of many projects coming to the area known as the North 32nd Street Corridor with hopes to revitalize the once booming area of Phoenix.  The co...
