1. What Jesus Teaches Us About Money

    What does Jesus teach us about money?  Many people have attempted to tackle this subject, perhaps since the beginning of Christianity.  We celebrate the Christmas season as the time when Jesus made His physical debut in our world, so I thought this would be an opportune time for me to make my first attempt to…

  2. The Cost of Finding Yourself

    What does finding yourself even mean? Finding yourself seems to be a difficult task.  People use the term in so many different ways that I don’t really understand it.  For me, it’s easier to understand a sports team’s identity.  A team embraces its identity, then works together to achieve a common goal.  The difference between…

  3. The Coffee Can

    Folgers coffee ran a campaign that really hit home for me and there was very little coffee involved in the commercial.  The family wrote something on a piece of tape, which they stuck to the coffee can.  The word on the tape was a product they desired, such as a new baseball glove, and the…

  4. Once in a Lifetime…

    Did you watch the SpaceX launch on May 30, 2020?  I did!  I know the world is hurting right now, but let’s take a moment to appreciate the magnitude of the launch.  According to pre-launch interviews, SpaceX had been working toward this moment for about 20 years and it’s really just the beginning.  Elon Musk,…

  5. Investing Like a Tortoise

    Animals play a role when we talk about the stock market.  If you’re a bull, or “bullish,” then you believe the markets will rise.  A bear, or “bearish” investor, believes the market is going down.  With the current market reactions to the Coronavirus Pandemic, I’m reminded of a story involving two other animals.  Have you…

  6. Love and Money

    English was always my toughest subject in school. My struggle wasn’t really with the language, but with interpretation of what we read.  I always missed the subtle meanings of an author’s words that teachers loved putting on tests.  I would love to go back in time to ask classic authors (and artists) about our interpretations….

  7. A Matter of Time

    When I study wealthy entrepreneurs of our past and present they all have one thing in common:  They are experts in time management.  They understand it to be their most valuable asset as we have a limited supply of time in our lives.  Time management is learned well before their wealth is obtained. Hiring employees…

  8. The Food Conspiracy

    For years a statement has been on social media criticizing fast food restaurants for pricing their salads higher than their burgers.  The statement implied these restaurants only wanted the wealthy to be healthy; leaving the middle class to fight obesity alone.  Initially, I agreed because I compared it to healthcare costs.  If a product relates…

  9. The Education Investment

    Congratulations to the USA Women for winning their 4th World Cup!  As in all sports we have to remember that athletic careers are usually short.  Recently, I read Tim Howard’s biography, The Keeper, as I’m partial to goalies after playing the position in wheelchair hockey.  In the book, Howard explained how his career was “front-loaded,”…
