On a personal note — my brother Bobby

Bronze Star Meda This week is the 45th anniversary of my younger brother Bobby's death.  Within two years to the week my father also died.  I think of them both during this time, but mostly of Bobby. There is a picture of me as a blonde haired 22 year-old mother of two receiving the ceremonial flag from an officer at the Air Force base in Sacramento.  It is a day I remember as if it was yesterday and remember trying to fight against the unstoppable well of tears that opened up that day. Today I'm feeling a little sad but I am also frustrated with myself because---two moves in less than two years means that I know that picture is here but I just don't know quite where.

Financially Secure Future Please join me on Wednesday, Dec. 11 on my free webinar, “The Key to Reaching Your Financial Goals in 2014” Oh, here we go! Sliding into the end of yet another year. Before you get too busy with all the holiday festivities, take a little time to reflect and ask yourself: “Did I reach my most important goals for 2013?” “Am I significantly closer to realizing a bigger vision I have for my life?” “Are my finances, work and lifestyle all serving me well?”  Hey, if you’re not where you’d hoped you would be, that’s okay. After all, it’s so easy when we start a new year to be full of big dreams and goals. It feels good to envision what we might accomplish and we get excited about what’s possible. But then, as you come to the end that same, “no-longer-new” year, you may feel like your big visi...Continue Reading
