  1. Thanks for your comments, Slava…I agree that talking to people with more money than you can be a great way to save, invest, and earn more money!

  2. “The rule is not to talk about money with people who have much more or much less than you.”

    Why? The “much more” part, not “much less”. I think they can actually teach you a lot about how to get where they are.. Also, sometimes people who have much less money are those who are temporarily out of money.. you know – every millionaire was bankrupt about 3 times before he got rich :)

  3. Freddy,

    Paying for health care can be such a burden, especially when you’re dealing with the stress and fear that comes with surgery! I’m sorry for your situation.

    I’ve written two articles on paying for medical care costs. Here are the links:

    I hope these articles help, and I invite you to ask questions if you need more info.

  4. Hi,

    I didnt see anything here on paying for medical care. My dad has to go for an expensive surgery, and I don’t know how we’ll pay for it.
