I always wanted a Porsche convertible!  It doesn’t stop there; I like Ferrari’s, Aston Martin’s, BMW’s, AC Cobra’s and much more.  I like antique and classic cars too.  Maybe it is a fantasy, a dream or a goal.  I remember the first time I drove a Mercedes Benz 500 SLC or saw a Ferrari up close.  It was one of my goals or a conjured up sequence fulfilling a psychological need!  Whatever it is, it is no longer a fantasy!

A red flag is an indicator of potential problems.  It means danger, stop or caution because of something ahead of you.  In personal finance there are a number of things to watch for or avoid to be successful.  They are things that we all go through, but should pay attention to and avoid the big problems.  I am going to use new terms, but I will explain them in simple terms.  Take notes because this is important!
