Courtney Casas, stay-at-home mom: Never owe more on your credit card than you have in your savings account.

Alicia Sneed, homemaker and exercise instructor: Three words: Pick your battles. That advice has worked with friends, enemies, husband, children, bosses—and even her.

Eric Seeley, hospitality sales representative: "Do the right thing" kind of covers everything.

Jennifer Alonso, account manager: Appreciate every moment as a parent, even the messy ones. Two weeks later, our newborn managed to poop all over the walls of his nursery and my husband's face. All we could do was laugh and cherish that disgusting moment!

Jillian Peterson, dancer: If it's wet and it's not yours, don't touch it!

Jasmine Simms, owner, Scrub Nail Boutique: "You don't have to do anything you don't want to do. I don't care who tells you: me, your father, anyone. You're in control of your own life." And I was only 8!
