Tap Into Your Inner ‘Market Stoic’ With This Portfolio Tool

After an Athenian jury sentenced him to death and his friends and followers in attendance began weeping, Socrates spoke… “What is this strange outcry? … I have been told that a man should die in peace. Be quiet, then, and have patience.” Socrates spent decades as a teacher – or, as he liked to describe himself, a “midwife to the soul.” But it was his manner at his death and his final words that sparked an entire school of philosophy… Inspired by the…

Keep Big Retail From Stealing Your Money

It’s that time of year again… The holiday season is over. There are no more Christmas gifts to be given, no more family dinners to endure… And if you’re like many people, you’re probably left with a stack of almost-empty gift cards in your wallet after trying to spend them at the mall.

This Is No ‘Kumbaya’ Moment

“Why can’t you guys just agree?” It’s one of the most common questions I’ve seen recently.

Try This Trick to Help You Drive Better at Night

Kneeling on the cold parking-lot asphalt was the last thing they wanted to do that winter’s afternoon… But my researchers are always in pursuit of new tips to share with you. And I’d asked them to go outside to work on my Hyundai. Specifically, I wanted them to focus on my old, cloudy headlights. We’ve all seen them… Maybe some of you also have them… And not only are they ugly, they are downright dangerous. A new study from AAA finds that the…

Five Ways to Fight Airport Stress During a Shutdown

My team likes to tease me about having a travel bug. They never know where I am or where I’m going from day to day… and I like to keep them on their toes. Between my places around the country, Hampton Inns and other Hilton properties, I fly at least seven times a month. Some folks we’ve talked to have reported delays at major airports in the past few weeks. That’s because the government shutdown forced TSA agents to work without pay…
