1. 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….

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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,”…

  5. In God We Trust

    It seems today there is always a protest about something on television.  I try to keep an open mind to see all perspectives and, while I agree with some protests, there are others I just don’t understand.  One thing I know for sure is that we’re extremely fortunate to live in the United States.  Sure,…

  6. Playing Not to Lose

    I have always been competitive, which led to life-long love of sports.  I enjoy watching athletes develop into amazing teams.  Of course, coaches and front office staff have to manage expectations of players and fans, but every athlete has the internal desire to be the best and to win.  That fire inside helps athletes achieve…

  7. The Greatest Gift

    I wrote on this subject for my Buzz Around Wayne County article, but I wanted to add to it because I am only allowed 250 words with the paper.  You can see the original article on my social media pages.  The Holiday Season brings a great question: Instead of buying every object our children want…

  8. The Millennial vs. The Account Minimum

    “I would work with you, but my finances are a mess and I don’t have enough money to plan with.”  I actually think people in this situation are exactly who need the services of a financial planner.  I believe that at its core, financial planning is about building a future, not just managing assets.  If…

  9. For Immediate Release

    Recently, I became a CFP® Professional. There are templates for press releases on the CFP® Board website, so that new recipients can inform their community of the accomplishment. While I appreciate the template and will quote some of it, I started my practice to be different from the others and that means I have to…
