Funny but years ago a colleague had all her money in the company's safe fund. It was safe but it paid minimal interest. I understood why - as she had a pretty ruff life - her husband ran off with a younger gal and died not long after - she was left with the 2 kids. Over time we chatted and I convinc...

We paid off our mortgage in about 10 years...we've been debt free for about 20 years. And I never felt I was doing without... We were careful about spending, couponed it, brown bagged it and put extra into the mortgage when ever we could. IMO it was well worth it.. for one my kids will graduate loan...

I couldn't find the exact article, It was 14 years ago when I read it. It had a profound impact on my life. A sixty year old lineman worked for a Enron subsidiary he was ready I to retire... He lost every penny in his 410k $1million. Pretty hard to start over at 60.. I happen to be 61 for a few more...

'Ability to ensure 8%+ average growth in current and future markets.' There are no guarantees when it comes to investing.. Oh you can get a risk free investment that might pay 2% but not much more than that. The good news is that over long periods many believe a balanced portfolio will return the 8...

I'm wading a few feet from shore tossing my lure (a crocodile) into the jones beach inlet with the hopes of finding striped bass or blue fish. A 40ft cigarette boat comes flying by, loud, obnoxious and in my eyes -useless. A mindless, conspicuous display of wealth and nothing more. Turn the key poin...

$10 works for me but I'm afraid there will still be protests. I don't like to admit it but I occasionally buy a burger or two (no fries - really bad for me) from the dollar menu - except it isn't a dollar any more. Would my behavior change if it became the $1.50 menu probably not. The middle class w...
