No one has a saving's account anymore and no one seems to put money away for a rainy day. They live paycheck to paycheck, credit card to credit card and then people wonder why the economy is such a mess. There's no get rich quick out there. It's just hard work, diligence, patience and common sense.I could not agree more.
