Saving is always smart

Staff Reports's picture

Q: My wife and I have gone from having almost nothing to making about $90,000 in the last few years. The problem is that I can’t get her interested in saving money. What’s worse, her father is the preacher at our church and he has convinced her that he knows the Lord is coming back in our lifetime.

Model behavior

Q: I live in Los Angeles, and my daughter makes $3,000 to $5,000 a month modeling. I don’t want her to become spoiled by this job and the income, and I need advice on what to do with the money. Should it be put aside for a car, and do you think she should have to pay for something like that herself?

Kohl's opened in Greer in September.

Business: A look back

Greer is growing and business has never been more alive in the community. Throughout 2014, we’ve had a chance to see new start-ups, say goodbye to familiar faces and witness big brands come to town. The following is a look back at the year that was in the business community.

Q: I have a friend who is experiencing financial problems. She is between real jobs at the moment and only bringing in about $600 a month. But even when she’s working regularly, she doesn’t budget or manage her money wisely, and she’s always looking for more money.

An unlikely thief

Q: I gave my wife $350 for Christmas shopping at Wal-Mart. While she was there with our 6-year-old daughter, she cashed her bonus check to put with the Christmas money. When she tried to check out, the money was gone. My wife even asked our daughter if she took the money out of mommy’s purse, and she said no.

Helping him stay on track

Q: My brother and I recently received an inheritance after our mom died. He’s never been very good with money, so I was proud of him when he used his portion to pay off his debts. But then he went out and financed a van that I know he still can’t afford.
