Inspirational


This weekend I watched The Pursuit of Happyness, a movie based on the real-life rags to riches story of Chris Gardner and his son Christopher. The movie stars Will Smith in the role of Chris, and Will Smith's own son, Jaden, in the role of Chris Gardner's son. Jaden is the most adorable thing on the face of this earth by the way, and he really does steal the show. And it's good to see Will Smith in something other than his usual blockbuster action flicks.


Chris Gardner is inspirational because:

He had made a promise to himself that he would always take care of his son, after his biological father disappeared and after a childhood of abuse by his stepfather. And so, when Chris Gardner's wife left him at a point of his life when any other normal human being would seriously consider abandoning a child (or maybe even contemplate suicide), Chris Gardner kept his promise and was there every day to pick up his son from nursery. He was interning at a brokerage firm, getting no pay whatsoever, trying to find shelter and food for his son every night, sleeping in subway station bathrooms, and yet he never gave up. All the while, he was studying hard so he could get a paid job at the company he was interning at.

Chris Gardner is inspirational because he never gave up. And he never lost hope.

Watch the movie...you'll feel happy, sad, motivated, good, lucky and of course, inspired.

Here are also a couple of YouTube links of a 20/20 interview with the real Chris Gardner:

Personal loans may not be right for every borrower looking for a home improvement loan. For example, if you have significant equity in your home and are looking to borrow a large amount, you might be able to save money with lower interest rates on a home equity loan. Also, interest payments on home equity loans and lines of credit can be tax deductible under certain circumstances – that’s not the case with personal loans.

On the other hand, personal loans can make sense for:

*Recent homebuyers
*Smaller home improvement loans (e.g., bathroom or kitchen as opposed to full remodel)
*Borrowers in lower home value markets (if your home value has barely budged since you moved in, you may not have much equity to draw on for a home equity loan)
*Those who value ease and speed
*Borrowers with great credit and cash flow

While home equity loans and lines of credit are a good source of home improvement money if you’ve built up equity in your home, a personal loan may be a better alternative if you’re a new homeowner and need to take care of a few updates to make your new home just right.
