My Thoughts on “The Millionaire Inside: Debt-Free”

Saturday, June 30th, 2007

Okay, here’s my report on tonight’s episode of The Millionaire Inside: Debt Free. I missed the first segment of the show because I was outside. Anyway, I turned the TV on to hear Larry Winget talking about how responsible people pay their bills and honor their contracts. I don’t know what that was in reference […]

Tomorrow’s “Millionaire Inside” Should be Humorous

Friday, June 29th, 2007

You probably already know that I’m not exactly a fan of CNBC’s “The Millionaire Inside.” So far the show has been a lot of fluff and not much substance. That said, it has also been humorous.

Wednesday, June 27th, 2007

Good Article on Social Security

Tuesday, June 26th, 2007

I’m busy today but I wanted to share this article that I found in the June issue of Financial Planning with you. It’s titled The Greatest Benefit and it is about how planners can help people understand and plan for Social Security benefits. It’s a very complex issue (much more complex than it should be) […]
