As part of an immigrant family, I was raised thinking that stashing your cash under your mattress-literally-was safest. Then, when I was 18, I got a job on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.

Why Doing Your Taxes Is a Lot Like Working Out — Flex your tax muscles by filing yourself with the help of TurboTax or TaxACT. Face it, taxes are complicated. And I mean complicated.

You're passionate about it and ready to jump into the world of entrepreneurship like a boss, except one little thing seems to be standing in the way... Money. You need some green to fund your start-up, but unfortunately Mark Cuban isn't on your speed dial.

How Fashion Girls Can Save Major Money on Their Taxes — I like using a step-by-step process for anything I try to accomplish-especially in the realm of managing money-because it prevents you from having an anxiety attack when you don't accomplish everything all in one day. Like with learning any new skill, things need to be broken down into easy, manageable stages, so that you're tackling one thing at a time.
