Post image for Why I don’t Have a Bucket List

Any bucket list is stupid!  If you wait to do things or need to put it on a bucket list, you probably won’t do it anyway.  The concept of a list of things to do before you die bothers me!  It seems you are procrastinating if you need to put it on some list to do in the future.  The bucket list is a list of things to do before you kick the bucket.  Are you putting off something for all the wrong reasons?

Post image for Students: What to Do When You Know Your Loan Won’t Be Enough

Going to university is exciting, but also scary for many people. You have the chance to move out of family home, become your own person, and study something you love. It does come with responsibilities though. Dealing with your own finances is one of the less fun aspects of living on your own, but it needs to be done. Student loans are the number one way to keep your bank account in the black, but sometimes you need a little extra help throughout the year. Read More…

Post image for Get Paid to Stay Healthy

Paid to stay healthy?  Can you imagine insurance companies paying you to stay healthy?  I can’t!  Health insurance companies are routinely vilified for their practices.  Now they are not only encouraging healthy behaviors, but actually paying you for it.  It is a 180 degree change, but I will gladly take it.  Is there something wrong about accepting money from the insurance company for doing what you would do anyway?

Post image for Friday Night Links: Final Edition

This is my final Friday Night Links Edition!  I decided to take my own advice and change direction!  For the last six (6) months, I have been working on rebuilding my PageRank, MozRank and audience in general.  I slipped tremendously in my MozRank and just recently got back some of my PageRank (3 v. 4).   It is a little disheartening and it is time to change!    Read More…

Post image for I Will Only Work for Fun!

I will work for fun or I won’t work!  Over the years, I have seen various signs such as work for food, beer, $ dollars, satisfaction, fame, money or the joy of working.  Too often these words are meaningless.  If you do not enjoy what you do, you should quit!  That’s right, quit your job.  If not quit, look for another job!  Change careers, start your own business or just plain do something else.

Post image for Change Direction!

Did you ever change direction?  I am not talking about driving directions or a modest little change!  You know what I mean, an about face, turnaround, change of heart, flip-flop, metamorphosis, reorganization, u-turn, change of course or reversal.  Progress is so much better, but sometimes you have to change direction to reach your goal.  It starts with identifying your goals, evaluating your progress and adjusting or changing your efforts.

Post image for Friday Night Links:  Money Edition

I have always liked money!  Who doesn’t like money?  Well, there are a lot of you.  What do you mean you ask?  If you really liked money, you would treat it better!  I like money so much that I rarely use it.  Strange, but true!  I rarely use it because it is working for me.  Some may call it passive income others call it investments.  Do you really like money?

Post image for Why Aren’t There More Women Leaders?

There should be more women leaders!  Recently, Fortune published 50 Most Powerful Women in Business listing CEOs or senior executives of mostly Fortune 1,000 companies.  Why is there only fifty (50)?  In the mid 80′s roughly 45% of college graduates were women  and now it is approaching 60%. More women are going to graduate and professional schools too.  We have been here before! Read More…
