What Kind of People Make the Best Leaders at Work?

I’ve been listening a lot to this CD I bought for a really good price about two years ago that is basically a conversation with the founder of Whole Foods John Mackey. As you know, Whole Foods is a huge franchise now.

It started off as mainly a hippie-type of store with natural, wholesome [...]

Make Sure Your Business Card Comes with Rewards

I spend a lot on my Chase business credit card. For that reason, I wanted to make sure I had been set up with a pretty good deal when it came to reward points. What I ended up choosing in the end was not a cash back program or something where you could pick [...]

Is Romney an Out of Touch Billionaire?

As I get older, I find myself aligning more with the Republican party for their more conservative fiscal and financial outlook.  I find myself less liberal with the ways that federal tax money is spent. I feel like America right now encourages too many people to not work, and I want to change that.

Is it Worth it to Have a Side Business for Extra Income?

In a word, yes. It is totally worth it to have a side business for extra income as opposed to another typical job where you are working and getting taxes taken out on a weekly basis. It makes more sense to have a small side business in addition to a job instead of getting [...]

Experts Say Things Get Better in 2012, Will They?

I’ve got to admit, even though I am the eternal skeptic when some expert comes forward and says that this mess we are in is going to get better when every piece of financial data here and around the world flies in the face of that assumption, I have to take pause.

Is There Such a Thing as “Recession Proof” Business?

The term “recession proof” has become quite the buzzword in light of the new economic reality Americans are seeing themselves in today. I just read a story that hospitalizations for dirt-eating are on the rise, which does not say a heck of a lot of good things about the poverty level and desperation level [...]

Business Credit Card Got Hacked….

Oy. I swear, when you do a lot of business with a lot of vendors and individuals online for your business, it tends to be a high risk for getting your credit card hacked and used by fraudsters that could be anywhere inside or outside of the US.

I’ve been compromised – again. My [...]

Smart Phones Allow You To Find Great Deals

I love having a smartphone. I think it has actually helped me to improve my financial situation in a variety of ways. First and foremost, it allows me to easily monitor things for my business.

In addition to holding my 9-5 job, I also run a business on the sideline which relies a [...]

Getting More Credit Card Offers Suddenly

So, after apparently being on some “list” for a while, and my husband, who technically should have worse credit than me, getting all the credit card offers, I’m finally getting them again. Why they took a hiatus I don’t know.

What is especially amusing (I say that sarcastically), is that I used to get [...]

Why Credit Cards are GOOD

Yeah, you didn’t misread that. You may have thought you did though, since so many people do tend to think (including myself at one time, I must admit) that credit cards are really just a terrible thing to have. Yes, credit cards are a terrible thing to have, if you are the type of [...]
