Whether it’s a lower price, a better rate, a shorter term or a budget billing plan for your utilities – Everything is negotiable, but you have to ask for it.

In the Christian Bible - Romans 6:23 says that “….the wages of sin is death….” Oftentimes when we have more money, we’re able to buy more things that we think will give us pleasure, but sometimes these things end up bringing us more pain than pleasure and keep us away from fulfilling our true calling.
