Rewarding Credit Cards: 3 Cards We Use (and 2 We Have Our Eyes On)

Dave Ramsey hates credit cards. I say this as someone who's never actually listened to a full episode of his show, but I've heard his position on plastic again and again from various articles either agreeing or disagreeing with him. Personally, while I understand why someone like him who speaks...

#FinHealthMatters: The Biggest Financial Lessons I've Learned

Today, April 25th, is #FinHealthMatters Day. I was first introduced to this "holiday" last year when the Center For Financial Services Innovation brought it to my attention via a FinCon contest.

2024 Solis 5G Mobile Hotspot Review

For years, I've been a regular user of Solis mobile hotspots and have used them for several international trips (and some domestic). Of course, as the years have gone on, my Solis 1 device has grown a bit old. While it still works just fine, it has been discontinued and...

2024 Solis WiFi Hotspot Review: Using the Skyroam Solis Lite Overseas

As someone who regularly “workations” and relies on a solid Internet connection to be productive while traveling, it’s kind of crazy that I went without a WiFi hotspot for so long. That’s mostly because I had never come across a particular device that jumped out at me.  Well, that was...
