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. Now I will have to go back through five days of living expenses and sort the whole mess out or chalk it up to a loss. There, my conscience is clean.

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. Once you get word of an inheritance, what steps should you take? Above all, don't rush to act. If you are in the midst of the grieving process, it's hard to make good decisions about money.

Discretionary income has been quite the buzz word these days. According to investopedia.com, discretionary income is described as "the amount of an individual's income that is left for spending, investing or saving after taxes and personal necessities (such as food, shelter, and clothing) have been paid… includes money spent on luxury items, vacations and non-essential goods and services."

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.

The changing face of PocketMedia

Edsel Drive has some new residents to boast about. I joined in the celebration of the ribbon cutting at Mrs. T's Baked Goods last week. Tasty treats were available for all to enjoy.
