on Your Own Money

There is no formula for financial success.  Everyone has to find their own way, and we want to help you find yours.


  • By sharing stories from others who have done it before you – not only their success, but also their mistakes.
  • By interviewing people who know their stuff, from financial planners to experts in various fields.
  • By giving you questions to ask and information to look at for.
  • And most importantly, by acknowledging the truths about the world you’ve been thrown into.

Our aim is to let you in on an array of insights, opportunities, perspectives, and options, so that you can make the right decisions for your life.  Check us out and come back often.  www.onyourown.org

Face it: you’ve made some lousy purchases. But don’t worry; you’re not the only one. Spendster recognizes that everyone has a junk drawer or garage full of stuff they never use or a spending habit they just can’t break. That’s why Spendster has created a safe haven for you to clear the air about what’s cluttering your life or draining your wallet.


A retirement paycheck is a practical way to think how you will pay yourself during your retirement years.  All the questions you’ll ask yourself in this site are connected to one larger question:  “How much of a regular retirement paycheck can I expect to pay myself?”  The answer to this question requires a holistic approach:  it depends on decisions you will make about your work, your benefits, your home and more.

We want you to have the information to make wise decisions in all these areas – decisions that will make your resources go further so you can enjoy greater financial well-being in retirement.  No matter how big or small your nest egg is, the choices you make now affect what you’ll earn then.
