Notaries are always ready to talk about better money management in January. How about getting a jump on it, today!
Earlier, I was researching disaster recovery and ran into a few great links to share. There will be more to come about
- small business
- home management
I ordered about 100 short publications yesterday.
Since I work for a quasi-state agency with a sister agency that performs extension services, I know that there are high-quality resources on government websites that we can tap into. Google your state's name, "gov" or "edu" and the word "extension" and you'll see!
These types of guides are written by brilliant experts and aren't full of gobbledy-gook, high finance, and scoldings. Best of all, they are free.
Below is a short list from one publication I reviewed...stay tuned for more!
