How To Get Along With Your Boss

Tweet If you work for a corporation there will come a time when you end up with a boss that you don’t get alone with. When this happens it is bad for both you & your boss as well as those you work with.  After all, you are at work eight hours a day or more, 40 hours a week or more.  You actually may have more face to face time with your boss than you do your spouse or kids.  Think about this, by the time you say good bye to...

Failure Equals Success

Tweet No one likes to fail. There isn’t one person reading this that begins something with the intent to fail at it. When someone studies for an exam, then sits for the exam, they don’t whisper under their breath, “oh I hope I fail this”. No, we all intend to succeed.

Going Poor Eating

Tweet Food. We all need it to survive, some love it so much they define themselves as a foodie, others truly just eat to survive. Over the last several months I have failed terribly at bringing my lunch to work on the days when I am not working out of my home. I have not excuse.  Sure, I can say I have been busy, tired, but really even on a good day I am busy and get tired. The fact of the matter is I just have not made preparing my...

10 Things Our Grandparents Did With Money

Tweet First off, when I reference Grandparents, I am referencing those who were born in the late 1890’s to early 1900’s. In my opinion, that was the smartest generation.   Actually, I even think my great grandparents were even smarter when it came to money, but for the sake of this post the two can be intertwined. When it comes to investing money, many people today look at what the super rich do, people like Donald Trump or Warren...

Buy A Memory Not Stuff

Tweet Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is right around the corner. The craziness of shopping has begun. So many are focused on the deals of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Why? What happened? In some cases Thanksgiving didn’t even get half way started and people either had to leave the family gathering to go work selling retail or get in line to start shopping for retail. What happened to Thanksgiving? What happened to people, to...
