productive fun: play games and learn about finance at the same time

As an entrepreneur, using my time wisely is at the top of my priority list. Though it feels like I work 24/7, I do remember to take personal time to relax and reflect when I need it. One of my favorite ways to to unwind is to play flash games on my computer or smartphone. It's entertaining and low stakes, so I can cut loose and enjoy some colorful and carefully crafted games.

One of my favorite sites to visit to play quick (and somewhat educational) online games is on the Mortgage Calculator website. They have a variety of different styles of entertaining games, including: real estate, career building, software development, STEM learning games, and more. There is a little bit of everything, so you are bound to find something that is your style of play!

There are familiar characters who lead the gameplay on some of the games too! On the site, you can spot Legos, The Amazing World of Gumball, The Powerpuff Girls, and other notable names.

In the the Lego universe, I built a town full of Lego buildings, Lego people, Lego businesses, institutions, amenities, and communities. First, I started with the necessities for the town by building fire stations, hospitals, etc. This reminds me of when my brother and I used to build Lego sets as kids. Each building block was intricately placed interlocking with the one next to it. The only thing we ever complained about was when a Lego piece would go rogue, and someone would end up stepping on it! They pierce through to the soul! Ow! Luckily, with the online game on Mortgage Calculator, I don’t have to worry about that.

One of my favorite shows to watch on TV is The Amazing World of Gumball. As an adult, I still watch cartoons, because they spark my creativity and imagination! I think the characters are supposed to be gumballs and one of them is a fish too! “The Amazing World Of Gumball Tidy Up” is what this one is all about. Help Gumball tidy up his room. It’s always nice to take a few moments to pick things up around the house when I get a chance; in hopes it will give me some extra free time later to play games on Mortgage Calculator.

The Real Estate Tycoon game is my favorite, as it is something I am working towards in my own life too. Owning properties and gaining investments is a goal of mine. With proper planning and a winning mindset, I can accomplish anything in life. After all, life is a game, and when we enjoy it, we have fun anytime!
