The classes I enjoyed and learned from the most were the ones where the teacher facilitated a true discussion. In that spirit, and following the spirit of Beyond Paycheck to Paycheck, most blog entries are written in true conversational format. I think that’s one key reason why you’ll find you learn much more here than you ever expected.

I provide all the tools possible for you to learn: examples and the opportunity to ask questions which you will do in italics. Also, be warned that Gary, a sales-obsessed “planner,” will appear from time to time to express his thoughts. Part of your education in money management is becoming aware of what his spin might be in certain situations, while determining your own true needs.
