And they don’t come much bigger than deciding whether to continue with higher education by attending a university or college and ultimately graduating with a degree.  The cost of a col Continue Reading
Big Eats Little – Why the Economy Will Never Take Off
Until last week we had the best trash disposal service we’ve ever had. It was a small, locally owned and operated independent company that not only charged much lower fees than the big haulers, but they also delivered superior customer service. But on Monday – the day that we normally have pick Continue Reading
Are You A Foreclosure Sitting Duck?
What’s a foreclosure sitting duck? It’s a person sitting in a house that he knows he’s probably going to lose, but he hangs around and…just sort of lets it happen. You’ve probably seen examples of this happening. Maybe you’ve been in that position yourself. I don’t want to minimize Continue Reading
How Technology is Changing How to Sell Your House
Technology is sweeping across the economy – or more precisely, technological change is what's doing the sweeping.  It’s affecting every nook and cranny of the economy, and how we do business. It’s been having an effect on the real estate business for several years; Zillow and Craigslist are t Continue Reading
How Much Should You Invest in a College Education?
If you’ve ever read any of my posts on the state of college education today, you know I’m not a big fan of using college as some sort of default option for young people who aren’t sure what else to do with their lives.

Why an Independent Insurance Agent Is Your Best Friend When Buying Insurance
OK - this post is going to read like a plug for the insurance industry, or at least for insurance agents and brokers. And maybe it is, but rest assured the endorsement is based on life experience and not on any an affinity that I have for the profession or any single member engaged in it. Nor am I i Continue Reading
Self-employment in the Internet Age
"Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness." - Motto of The Christophers I mostly make my living on the internet these days but I have a confession. I never worked much with computers until about five years ago, least of which the internet. Sure, in the preceding 25 years that I Continue Reading
Know the Value of the Car You’re Buying – and the One You’re Selling
When ever we buy a car, a process known as “haggling” is set in motion. From a car dealer’s perspective, this process has two over-riding objectives: a) To charge as much as possible for the vehicle they’re selling us, and b) To pay as little as possible for the vehicle we’re tradin Continue Reading
Robin Williams – Goodbye to a True Legend
I must confess at the outset that I’m not much of a celebrity worshiper. I couldn’t care less what Kim Kardashian is doing, what Jennifer Aniston is wearing Saturday night, or what Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have planned for the weekend. But Robin Williams was one of those rare talents who wa Continue Reading
