The Romans were lazy.  That’s right, I said it: “Lazy”.  The typical response would be that, along with building an empire, Romans built highways, aqueducts, coliseums, etc.  Many of those basic designs are used today, as is the Julian Calendar, another brilliant innovation under the Roman empire.  How could they have been lazy?  Well, the Julian [...]

I was born in August some years ago.  Rather than just celebrate a day or week, I celebrate my whole birth month.  Granted, the celebration has changed drastically from when I was knee high to a grasshopper.  I no longer go all out for a day, but rather celebrate on a lower scale for 30 days.  [...]

Your Ever Changing Future Is No Place For A “Rule Of Thumb”

Do you go to a doctor when you get sick?  Of course!  Do you take your car to the mechanic?  You bet!  This makes it interesting why so many people choose to act as their own financial advisor.  Having 6 different mutual funds might cause someone to brag about how they are diversifying, or perhaps a [...]

July is usually hot, stormy, and always unbelievably busy, so I can understand your financial to-do list usually takes a back seat.  I, however, think you can easily accomplish one of these tasks in less than 45 minutes out of the 44,640 minutes available in July. Re-evaluate your homeowner's/renter’s insurance Summer is usually a good time [...]

What Are Your Summer Plans?

By | 2017-06-14T16:59:32+00:00 April 28th, 2017|Categories: Personal Planning|Tags: , , , , , |

People either love or hate April.  I personally like it for a few reasons: busy season is over, my refund check is in the mail, and the weather is changing.  Not everyone gets to share in the same experiences as me since their busy season might be different, they may owe come tax time, or they [...]

Guiding Principles for Changing Markets

“What is your intention?”  It’s a big question, and one that leads nearly every aspect of your life – including the parts that deal with money. An investment intent is based on the intractable belief we have in the principles and practices that guide our decision-making for our investment portfolios.  In times of market upheaval and [...]

4 Sources of Cash Flow to Fund Your Growth

For anything to grow it needs fuel. In business, that fuel is cash. The economic climate for most businesses is positive right now, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t having cash flow challenges. In fact, if you are growing, and especially if you are growing quickly, your main concern day to day may very well be [...]

Let’s Get Results!

We all want to see results from the efforts we put forth.  We want to know if all the saving we have done over the years has made our bank account larger, or if the healthy lifestyle we have been living is making our clothes fit better and our energy level increase.  As business owners, we [...]

New Year’s Resolutions

By | 2017-05-24T14:15:18+00:00 February 17th, 2017|Categories: Personal Planning|Tags: , , , , , , |

Resolutions are supposed to be your intention for the new year, not a to-do list for the first week of January that is never fully completed.  I have yet to see someone accomplish a resolution within a week.  We usually get “busy” and  stop caring about what we set out to accomplish within the first couple [...]

https://vimeo.com/204222830/settings/embed Like many young women, I learned to cook watching my Mother.  By the time I left home, I was pretty good too. My love of cooking was fostered in two ways.  One, I loved to eat.  And two, there was nothing better in my book than sharing a meal with family and friends.  What I [...]
