My take on golf is be a good golfer first, and buy good clubs later when you know you're going to stick with the game. Also, you don't have to play a round of golf each time you want to really enjoy the game. I enjoy simply chipping and putting on the practice greens. It's a no cost way to improve y...

I like the Tisdale label for wine. They are a bottled wine, and their Merlot and Shiraz are very nice. It's very reasonably priced as well. For parties, I'm inclined to use box wine. Quality for each "varietal" varies, but I've been pleased with Chablis and Blush from several makers. For m...

Apparently you only have one customer, and there is a potential for you to join that outfit in a senior position. I'd be lining up additional customers on my own. Use your network of associates and pr...

Whether it's a car or anything else, it's very much a personal choice. For some, the depreciation is well worth the great feeling that one gets owning a new car. I dislike the idea of car payments, and it makes no sense to me to buy a new car every year or two or three. My first new car was purchase...

I've been mortgage free since 2005. I did it a little differently than most, and for different reasons. I paid off the house a few years after taking out the mortgage. I paid half down on the house to reduce the mortgage payments, and after accumulating a nice cushion of cash, I made my move to elim...
