Rant N Rave: Conforming and Credit Cards

Rant: It’s been awhile since I’ve had a couple of good topics to both Rant and Rave about. Today’s Rant is brought to you courtesy of the FinCon Facebook group I joined.  Let me preface this: I’m very excited to go to FinCon and I cannot wait to go learn a ton of really great … Read more…
