They even done a directly speaking tape for the abuses that went on. I don’t think the entire Lender really give a dam reguarding rules and regulations.I’ve gone to a sales job interview in the newspaper and one of their distributors where giving me a pitch on Herbalife. The Lender companies are afraid of their distributor force leaving and going to another company. I’ve seen a lot of these ads in the newspaper advertising sales job or beaty section. A lot of my friends been scam to go to these interviews. I know cash-loan has some sort of rule reguarding the percentage of income made by tools,seminar,and rallies. But the owners of MoneyNow Llc where afraid of their top distributors leaving. If these loan companies enforce their rules and stand by them…. 24 hour loans network marketing industry would be a lot better shape today.
MAKES ME MAD !!!!
They wanted an employment guarantee from DH’s company, GUARANTEE. I laughed. There’s not a company in the WORLD that will guarantee employment.
Makes me mad because they told us in the beginning all we needed was “verification” of employment.
So two days before we are supposed to close, they pulled out.
Personally, I think we should buy an RV, pay cash for a tear down, and move on. Just saying.
I just thought I’d share our first big cash buy. We just had our roof repaired and we paid for it with a combination of a sinking fund and our tax return money. It feels really good to do that. In fact, right now, between all of our sinking funds, we have about 8 thousand in various accounts that can help us to avoid using credit to pay for various things.
Still working on the next evolution step, but the roof needed to be done. If we had not been saving for it, it would have just increased the amount that we owe because we would have had to take out a loan.
I haven’t been on the board much – maybe in a year! My husband started working in Virginia (I’m in Michigan still with our 4 year old daughter) last May, and it’s been a crazy ride. He moved to Virginia to take a next step in his career. It is a contractor job, but we were hopeful it would lead to a full-time job with the company. It hasn’t yet, but he will know by this July whether he is getting a job that is open right now — or if he will come back home to Michigan (we think he could pretty easily get a job with his old company, but it would be a big pay cut – but would still leave us just fine if I keep working).
But, our GREAT news, is that we closed last week on our house. This is a house we bought at the top of the market — in our early 20s, when we were stupid. I loved that house – it was there through our early marriage, bringing my daughter home from the hospital and watching her grow into a strong, confident, little girl. BUT, it was a constant stressor. We had a horrible interest rate. We kept it through really touch financial times, and contemplated whether we would have to be foreclosed on many times. But, with the market returning a bit, us being able to pay down the principal in the past year, and a great tax return, we were able to sell the house (we brought some money to the table to get out of it)! I would never have thought it would be possible, but we are free and clear of our house — without having to do a foreclosure, or a short sale. We’ve cleaned up just about all of our credit card debt, too. We still have a giant student loan from my husband, a small amount of a car loan I’m paying off, and a little bit a of debt to my husband’s parents, but I just can’t believe we did it on the house!
My daughter and I are living with my mom for a couple of months (we insisted on paying her rent). By July, we will have paid off my in-laws. If we end up moving to another state, we will get rid of my car (which we owe less on than it’s worth, so that debt will be gone), and all of our credit cards should be gone.
We never could see this light from the pile of debt and horrible money circumstances we were under 4-5 years ago. We are far from perfect now (we would be in amazing situation if my husband’s student loan was gone!) but hallelujah, we’re on our way!
