When DIY personal finance isn’t working

The “do it yourself” movement is nothing new in our country. The American Dream is built on the concept of the self-made immigrant or homesteader making clothing, buildings, inventions or industries with limited resources. The only difference recently is that with YouTube, Pinterest and other platforms, instructions for everything from cutting hair to repairing a dryer to real estate investing are all readily available to everyone and appear to be NBD (“no big deal”). We feel intelligent and acc...

Job Search: Age Discrimination or Convicted Felon?

This is a long post about working through, or around, job search discrimination. I’ve written quite a bit on this topic over the years. My friend Paul sent me this set of questions, which got me thinking about how hard it is for older (definitely over 50, but many over-40 job seekers feel it too) people to get into interviews, and then get an offer. Years ago I had a friend, Makini Harvey, who’s mission was to help convicted felons find jobs. Makini had a heart of gold, and I loved seeing her at...

Tony Bennett Duets with Lady Gaga, Amy Winehouse & Other Musicians, Passing on the Great American Songbook I was possessed with a wonderful example of my Italian American family.
