DON’T GET DUPED!

Are you currently paying bank fees, specifically monthly maintenance fees? If you are it’s akin to paying the supermarket a fee for the chance to buy food from them.

The Root Of All Evil!

Some of you may be surprised to know that the root of all evil is NOT money. The root of all evil is the belief that there is only ONE way to view the world.  These are some weird times we are going through.

Want Peace? Take off Your Glasses!

It is hard to tell whether Donald Trump is seeking America’s self-interest or his own.  In a perfect world self-interest is a thing of beauty.  For instance, when buyers and sellers meet each wants to get the best price for themselves. The buyer wants the lowest price and the seller wants the highest price. BuyersContinue reading “Want Peace? Take off Your Glasses!”

Money is human happiness in the abstract

Can you tell the difference between the abstract and the concrete forms of happiness?   In the abstract form it means that money can be used to buy material things to make one happy.

Nowhere to go, nothing to do!

It’s July, the best month ever! Not only is it my birth month, it’s also full-fledged summer! As the sun gets hotter, the bathing suits come out and the summer drinks start flowing I want to suggest a summer reframe.

Blimey Brexit is real!

As a former history student, I can appreciate the momentous event that happened on June 23rd.   The people have voted. Britain will leave the European Union (EU).

The Roz and Mocha Show- Inspired Wisdom, who knew!

  Last Thursday morning while driving to work I was listening to 92.5FM The Roz and Mocha Show.  They played a clip of an elderly woman’s reaction to wearing a virtual reality headset for the first time.
