There’s a cool documentary that can serve as inspiration on how to make some extra money. It’s called “Breaking Bad.”

SD salaries weren't great pre-pandemic, compared to cost of living. They're barely higher now, while rent/housing has jumped.
To afford living around here:
1) Get help from parents
2) Get higher paying 9-5
3) Get a roommate
I did #2, but I've seen #1 and #3 much more often.

I had 60 day late payment of 35 bucks in Jan. It was new Amex Hilton card I opened for stupid points. It was reported and my credit score had been consistently dropping from last 6 months. It was 780 and now is 735. I realized this 3 months and been paying my credit card bills immediately. Infact I have overpaid each card to have negative balance so my credit utilization is almost zero. What else I can do to repair the damage.

I’m seeing lots of posts about really bad losses. If you trade you’re going to lose money - hopefully not all the time, but many positions will be mistakes. But you need a process to find ideas and manage positions. Two books you should read are “The New Trading for a Livinng” and “The Laws of Trading.” Both look at psychology, process, and risk in different ways that can help you work out your own process. The next 18 months will be much harder than the last 18 - time to start learning.

I found a great great home near family perfect location to things, decent size, but is expensive. I don’t have $120k to just drop for the down payment (I want to have money left to furnish or just spend) my salary is under 6figs and even if it wasn’t I feel like it’s still not enough to rack up $60k within 1ish year. Does anyone have any side business or alternative income ideas to earn more money? I don’t wanna go an FHA loan for the 3.5% cause mortgage will be very high. Thoughts?
