Michael Gerber

I returned from a fantastic conference in Dallas Monday night. First, in the interest of honesty and transparency, I want to tell you that I didn't follow my own advice. I kept horrible financial records of the money spent on airport shuttles, meals and incidentals.

Will you ever receive a sizable inheritance? You can't plan on it. But if you do get one, you can plan on using it to help achieve some of your key financial goals.

When you have to travel

Gas prices keep going up. The pain at the pump has caused many folks to reconsider their summer vacation plans. There has been a buzz of the "staycation" option. This is where people opt to stay home and explore their own community and enjoy their own surroundings instead of spending money to travel. This is a fantastic option for many people, especially for us since we are a coastal community with a rich history. However, there are times when you just have to travel - especially if you are a business owner.
