Moving from Survival to Success

It is a sad fact that most people are living paycheck to paycheck.  They are like swimmers who are underwater, struggling to get to the surface to take a breath, only to slip below again.  The cycle of being in debt, getting out, then getting back in again continues on and on.

The Perseverance Method to Investing Success

I recently swam in the Dwight Crum Pier to Pier race here in Southern California.  It is a two mile race from the pier at Hermosa Beach to the pier at Manhattan Beach.

More than any other industry, the entertainment industry seems to reward bad behavior.  People do dumb stuff and sometimes it just works out.

Tech Bubble, Tech Bust: Should You Care?

Entertainment Industry: Is Your Pension Safe and Secure? -- "Show Me The Money"!!

Nothing is more confusing than pension plan accounting.  I remember absolutely hating it when I was studying for my MBA.

The entertainment industry has many pension plans.  There is the Producer-Writers Guild of America Pension Plan, the DGA-Producer Pension Plan, and the SAG-Producers Pension Plan, among others.

Easy Steps You Can Take To Live Longer

The very tools that we think are bringing us closer might also be the tools that are killing us.

I Love You. I Hate You

I love you.  I hate you.

I used to hear these words from my three year old.  He loved me when I let him watch TV.  He hated me when I made him clean his room.
