Call your financial advisor incase of an emergency?

While we are no DINKS we are finally the opposite, Dual Income Two Kids about an financial broker.  I graduated from the MBA Online degree program back in 2008 and Mrs. MBA graduated with her MBA masters in 2007.  I was working while I went to school and we were fortunate enough to be in a situation where she could just focus on school.  This worked out well.  She finished first and started out substitute teaching until I finished and then we moved closer to her family, so that when we raised our children her mother would watch the kids.  Long story short when we moved out here we found out she was pregnant with our first child.  Then she stayed home for the first year with our first child … [Read More...]
