Facing the Mystique of Money and Feeling Confident With Your Funds
Huffington Post - over 1 year
I leased my first car today. I bought my first car without the aid of an adept male guiding me to the MSRP. I love my car even though it's best to only love folks. This car I love because she, Goldilocks, is just right for me. I bought her, well actually leased her (does this count still?) on my own smarts and accord. I have come a long way, baby. I am 48 and three quarters years old and I have never had the confidence to purchase a car or insurance without help. This is namely due to the lack of money skills I have been programmed to believe. No one taught me about money, buying, saving and insurance, and I never bothered to ask. I finally felt the weight of my lack, my lack of information and understanding and interest in such matters as money and saving and buying and investing. And I felt utterly overwhelmed with shame and fear of my ignorance on all matters concerning money, after I severed the I do's. I Had to woman up and get some help when the divorce catapulted me into an indep ...

Hometown Source - almost 2 years
As the baby boomers continue marching to retirement, a significant number of entrepreneurs will soon begin transitioning family businesses to the next generation. If you are about to embark on this journey – in which two-thirds of all transitions fail – here are some potential pitfalls to avoid. A recent study concluded that about half of family-business owners intend to pass the company on to the next generation. Other experts found that only about one in three companies successfully execute an inter-generational business transition. The leading causes of failure: Breakdown of communication and trust within the family unit: 60% Inadequately prepared heirs: 25% Absence of a clear vision or mission to align family members: 12% Advisors improperly addressing taxation, governance and wealth preservation: less than 3% Pathways to success.

A Super Bowl Present For U.S. Soldiers In Afghanistan
Huffington Post - about 4 years
U.S. soldiers stationed in Afghanistan will be able to participate in at least one aspect of Super Bowl madness this Sunday: eating pizza. Pizzas 4 Patriots and DHL Express will send 21,000 deep-dish pizzas to U.S. soldiers deployed in Afghanistan and Kuwait on Super Bowl Sunday, according to a press release from the two groups. Illinois-based pizza company Great Kitchens will make the pizzas, and there will be enough to feed every U.S. soldier stationed in the two countries. Pizza 4 Patriots and DHL, which is donating its services for the mission, have sent more than 122,000 pizzas to U.S. troops overseas since 2008. When the troops receive the pizzas, they'll be joining in with their civilian counterparts in consuming cheesy goodness, as Super Bowl Sunday is one of the biggest days of the year for pizza sales. Domino's Pizza says it expects to sell more than 11 million slices of pizza on Super Bowl Sunday. And the National Restaurant Association estimates that 48 mi ...

As Morgan Stanley drops “Smith Barney,” some wonder about the brand
Reuters.com - about 4 years
At the Goldman Sachs investor conference on Tuesday, Morgan Stanley wealth management executive Greg Fleming ran through his 31 slides like a financially savvy drill sergeant, with a full discussion of margins, lending, technology, "value propositions" and "illustrative solutions." But in the Q&A session, he was asked an unusually thoughtful question by an audience member: What about the brand, and the culture, of Morgan Stanley Wealth Management? As Morgan Stanley has taken control and increased ownership of the Smith Barney retail brokerage from Citigroup, legacy Smith Barney brokers have often complained about what's happening to the culture. Morgan Stanley is all about numbers and metrics, they say, expecting brokers and managers to constantly do more with less. Morgan Stanley has fired hundreds of underperforming brokers who, under previous standards, were performing just fine. It also got rid of duplicative managers and lots of back office and administrative staff, as F ...

___ Confident consumers give US retail sales a lift WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans spent more money at retailers in September — a buying surge that reflected growing consumer confidence and the launch of the latest iPhone. Retail sales jumped 1.1 percent last month, producing the best two months of sales in two years, according to figures released Monday by the Commerce Department.
