The Morning Shave
Soft Credit Check vs. Hard Inquiry. – When applying for credit, there is a huge difference between a soft and a hard credit inquiry. Did you know that there are ways to apply for a new credit card without having a hard inquiry post to your credit report? Pretty cool.
Everything You Should Watch Out for When Booking a Flight, According to a Pilot. – Definitely some important information. When traveling by myself, I’m always looking to get bumped to make some money to go towards future vacations.

We just like to travel with way too much stuff. Pack smartly and you can get away with just one “personal item” bag that fits under the seat.

I used to work so hard when balancing a full-time job, blogging by night, and all of the responsibilities that come with being a Dad and a husband. I’m much happier now. And I hope whoever wins this prize realizes that there’s so much more to life than just work. Maybe this vacation will help them snap out of it and re-prioritize their life a bit.
