Financially Significant Birthdays

Every birthday is a gift. And some birthdays are bigger than others. Don’t I know it! Someone said my 30th, my 40th and just recently my 50th were big ones. And they were for a variety of reasons; then again it’s getting harder to remember why!

Time Flies, So Enjoy Each Moment

How could this happen?

kids  soccerI’m looking in the mirror through the eyes of a youthful 22 year old. Mentally I am still at the beginning of my life, with the world at my feet. My wife would tell you that I still act like a child, or that I should stop acting like one anyway. How can it be that when I look in the mirror I see what I see?
