In the past day or so, I received numerous emails that the Prince Georges Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) is set to close its doors in the spring 2010. Is this true?
Here are a few of the emails I received:

Take a Risk on Self
by B. Turner
How can you just leave your good government job, what are you gonna do? You made it…just sit back, chill and enjoy life. Well it’s hard to just chill if you feel you have a bigger purpose in life.

Why Don’t We Read More?
Everything that you want to do in life can be found in a book. So why don’t people read more?

Reading opens your mind to a whole different world.… Continue

I bet you think I’m joking right? You’re probably thinking that talking about finances in the most boring thing in the world. Why should you talk about that?
Most people feel that having a lot of money will solve financial problems. “If I hit the lottery, I am going to be set for life.” Well how come most people that win the lottery are broke in a few years? The common theory is they lose it because they do not understand money…more importantly they never talk about it. And as the… Continue

First off, before I go into details of answering the question, I am not implying that having good credit is not important. If you have a high credit score, that’s great.

Growing up, society taught us that having a great credit… Continue
