I am a single mom w/ an amazing 4 yr old boy named Tristen. I work 50 hrs a week & Iam very active in my church...(which I love, love, love!!!) I struggle w/ time! I strugle w/ finances! What can I do to have more time w/ my little guy~ & be able to prosper for the both of us?

First question is do you have to work 50 hrs a week to keep your job or can you work less hours? Next question is there a higher paying job with less hrs. in the same field of work that you could do? Apply for it. Find things in your church activities that can include your son such as working in his class on the days that you have church, that way you are still contributing to your church but also are with your son. Also talk to a financial counselour/advisour about making a better budget guide, sometimes it helps to have someone else set a plan for you to stick to. The counselour/advisours also seem to have more leverage with credit card companies and are able to get lower interest rates for you than you can get for yourself. If it just so happens that your job is as a financial planner you know this, LOL, but sometimes hearing from someone else helps.
