Should They Pay You?

Posted Wed Sep 28, 2016

While some children went back to school or moved across the country, other children are now, more commonly, living at home after graduating college. Compared to 20% of individuals who were living at their parents’ home in 1960, now over 36% of individuals ranging from 18-34 are “nesting” – and that number continues to rise. As the economy changes and concerns for Millennials finding a steady career continues, you as parents are left with a decision. Do you charge rent? […]

Why You’re in Debt

Posted Thu Sep 15, 2016

Debt is a scary word that no one likes to think or talk about. The reality is, however, that millions of Americans are in debt at varying levels. Even a small amount of debt can cause high levels of stress in our lives. It can seem that at one moment it is manageable and then before you know it you are so far into it you can’t see a way out.

Financial Fitness Tips

Posted Tue Jul 05, 2016

The word “gym” is a contraction of “gymnasium” derived from the ancient Greek word gymnasion. The ancient Greek gymnasiums were places where athletes trained for public games such as the Olympics.

The Kid’s Moved – Is It Time to Downsize?

Posted Mon Jun 13, 2016

There comes a time in most family’s lives when the kids are grown and hopefully, by then, the middle-aged “basement dwellers” have moved out. I say that with a smile, and a smile because if you have children, no matter how big of a headache they may have given you over the years, they will always be your babies. It’s in your nature as a parent to always continue to provide and be there for your children no matter what. […]
