Top 10 Reasons to Talk $ This Holiday!

This past weekend, in the midst of the holiday hustle and bustle, a friend and I bemoaned the difficulty in keeping focus on what matters during the holidays.

Why Can’t A Woman Be More Like…

Remember that somewhat, um, dated tune from the 1956 hit musical “My Fair Lady?” Henry Higgins repeats over and over again in a doleful refrain: “Why can’t a woman be more like a man?” While the point of this post is not to dig deep into the show’s 1950s-era perceptions of gender differences, the issue of how …

December 1, already! How did that happen? Before we know it, we’ll be staring New Year’s Eve in the face, and looking down the long road of 2015.

How Much Risk is Too Much?

Markets took most of us by surprise recently when the S&P 500 momentarily wiped out the year’s gains on October 15. Journalists and pundits sought to explain the intraday sell-off and volatility, blaming Ebola fears, economic weakness, and uncertainty about the Federal Reserve, among other things.
