Saving – just start somewhere
We don’t save like we use to for many different reasons. Here are a few statistics to help show where we are as a nation: 38% of American adults have an emergency fund. 41% save something regularly, $ 35,000 is the average amount saved for retirement in America. Out of people who do save for retirement only 18% feel they have enough saved when they do retire. Now I can try to make you feel bad and list all of the other countries that do better at…Continue

The surveys are out and, once again, Americans did not make the list of "happiest people in the world." Apparently, the world's wealthiest nation has yet to discover that real happiness is elusive.
I remember seeing the…

How far would you be now?
Do you remember when you were a kid and someone told you to go do something and you got half way to your destination and they called you back and asked you; I wonder how far you would be now if you didn’t turn around? Do you notice how we often do the same thing to ourselves by not doing what we set out to do originally? We usually have an idea of where we want to go, or where we would like to be at certain stages of our life. Things in life…Continue

This year we have added a new feature to our blog posts. Each Sunday I post a devotional based in personal finance. I hope to eventually compile them into a small book. Let me know what you think! I am currently reading Tribes by Seth Godin. In his book he refers to non-conformists as heretics. Are you a financial heretic? Read more

Dan Miller must have read my mind. What perfect timing to read his blog.
As some of you know, I was recently laid-off by the organization I gave nearly 32 years of my life too. I am 56 years-old and between my age, health and spending years in a job that wasn't advancing my skills towards modern techniques with asset management and purchasing, I basically became a master of nothing.

Most people drowning in debt would be stressed out. Panic would be the normal agenda. Granted, the day I was informed of the bad news my head was spinning at times. But the relief to finally have the opportunity to develop my own business overshadows debt at the moment.

One of the largest problems in our Government is debt. The current rage in our Nation's capital is focused on debt relief for our country, before we fall off the "fiscal cliff." With the approaching Christmas holiday, how many shoppers are struggling with personal debt? Our Government has imaged itself after its citizens; mortgaging our future to become slave to the lender.

The problem with freedom
I know it sounds strange, that a problem would exist if you are free. I believe that we, as Americans, have a problem with freedom. The problem is that we do now know how to live free! We say we want freedom of speech, freedom from an oppressive government, freedom in our finances, freedom to do work we love, freedom of religion and so…Continue

The Rust Belt Chronicles is a result of witnessing, watching and learning the habits of the Industrial Age mindset. The years of going from a boom town to perhaps the new (move over Youngstown, Ohio) - "The Rust Belt Capital of the World" in sunny Mansfield, Ohio has taught me not to accept the rerun of "Ground Hog Day" from the rust belt theater.
The mindset isn't limited to the remaining or former factory employees. Over the years, it…

Inflation and National Debt
We hear about inflation and the national debt so much in the news and on news talk shows that we get to where we tune it out and assume we understand what they are talking about. We also may not care what they are talking about and just worry about what is going on in our own little world. I will try not to bore you with too much nerdy information but hopefully explain it better than the news. I will start with inflation first. Inflation is an…Continue
