3 ways to shore up your finances in 2020

He keeps the credit union … Web: Details I don’t think anyone saw 2020 going the way it has. With job security at an all-time confusing level and viruses popping up out of nowhere, it’s a great time to make sure your accounts are ready for whatever comes next. Here are three ways you can make sure your money is in good shape going into 2021…Stop acting on impulses: If money isn’t really a problem for you, that’s great, but bad habits can come back to haunt you. Think about your spending habits. Do you make impulse buys any time you want? No matter how big or small, impulse purchases can lead to trouble if things are suddenly not going so well. If you have a pile of entertainment subscriptions, do you know which ones you’d cut loose if your budget suddenly tightened? Hopefully, when COVID leaves us, it’ll be saying “peace out” and never coming back, but if 2020 has taught us anything, it’s to expect the unexpected.Know how to use a credit card: Enjoying the use of a credit card can be dangerous, especially in the crazy times we’re currently in. Even if you find it pretty easy to pay off your purchases each month and you love earning cash rewards, what are you going to do if you drive to work one morning and find your office swallowed up by a giant sinkhole? Yeah that seems unlikely but like I said earlier, it’s 20 freakin’ 20. Look to the future: Have you saved enough to enjoy retirement one day? Are you going to be able to leave anything to your kids? There are a lot of questions and uncertainties when it comes to your financial future. Even if you don’t have heirs, humans are living longer than ever these days and you want to make sure you don’t outlive your savings. If you haven’t checked in with your financial advisor lately, use the unpredictability of 2020 as an excuse to at least have a quick conversation with them before the end of the year.last_img read more

Deontay Wilder thinks Anthony Joshua wants no more of Andy Ruiz Jr.

first_imgMORE: Watch the full replay of Ruiz’s upset of Joshua on DAZN(Warning: explicit language)He wasn’t a true champion. His whole career was consisted of lies, contradictions and gifts.Facts and now we know who was running from who!!!!#TilThisDay— Deontay Wilder (@BronzeBomber) June 2, 2019The worst thing you can do in life is Fucking Quit!!— Deontay Wilder (@BronzeBomber) June 2, 2019On Tuesday, Joshua’s promoter at Matchroom Boxing, Eddie Hearn, said the rematch clause had been invoked, and his fighter and Ruiz will fight again in either November or December. In an interview conducted Wednesday with TalkSport, the WBC titlist said he doesn’t think Joshua will take on Ruiz again, and he doubled down on his statement that Joshua quit in the corner.”I don’t think it’s gonna happen,” Wilder said of the rematch. “Did you see what just happened? This man is mentally broken. He quit. Joshua quit in that ring. To a challenger. That’s the most disappointing thing about it. Being a champion, being boosted up so much, and you go in there and quit — that’s a sign. When he spat that mouthpiece out for the first time, that’s a sign.”The referee told him to come forward, he stayed there. He put his hands on the ropes. The referee told him to come forward. He stayed. That’s another indication: ‘I don’t want to fight no more.'”Join DAZN and watch GGG-Rolls: Sign up in U.S. | CanadaWhether Joshua quit is only something the 2012 Olympic gold medalist would know, but why would Joshua quit with a possible undisputed heavyweight title fight with Wilder on the line, coupled with making his debut in the United States?The 33-year-old from Alabama puts the onus squarely on Hearn for putting enormous expectations on Joshua, and Wilder thinks Joshua’s loss to Ruiz wasn’t because of his lack of boxing ability.”Hearn has manipulated people from the get-go,” Wilder said. “Joshua will never talk for himself. Hearn has put so much pressure on him. He has sold a lot of emotional garbage. He put out a lot of things that weren’t true, and it was a lot of pressure. So Joshua not only had to come out and say certain things and back his words up, but he also had to back his promoter’s words up, as well, and I don’t think that was fair for him. I told Hearn, ‘You are milking him,’ and everything I said has come true to this point. “(Joshua’s defeat) was 100 percent mental. So much pressure was on him.”Wilder said he won’t believe that Joshua will face off with Ruiz again until a contract is signed. He also gave some advice to Joshua on how he should be handling his career going forward.”I would tell Joshua that whatever he wants to do, he should do,” Wilder said. “He has done a great service for others. He has been this type of person for others. Now it is time to worry about yourself. You want to take off, you take off. It is your career. It is your life.” Deontay Wilder has been incredibly vocal since his rival, former IBF, WBA (super) and WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, lost his belts in an upset loss to Andy Ruiz Jr. on Saturday night in New York.When the fight concluded, Wilder immediately took to social media and bashed Joshua’s career. He went as far as to say the Englishman quit inside the ring when Ruiz knocked him down for the fourth time and Mike Griffin deemed Joshua unfit to continue.last_img read more
