Life Is Too Unpredictable!

UNITED STATES—I always say life will test you in ways sometimes that you never expect. Things are thrown in your direction that you never expected. I don’t know what to say about the past few weeks, with work (not one job, but two), school, family, death and so much more, I can’t believe I’m still standing. I pride myself...

Money Spent Wisely

UNITED STATES—I am a firm believer that when it comes to money, as soon as you get it, the quicker it disappears. It seems like the more I work the more bills I have or things just unexpectedly arise that I never expected. I’m a planner first and foremost. When it comes to income I always want to know...

Dads Matter Too America!

UNITED STATES—Mother’s Day was in May, and June celebrates Father’s Day. I think Father’s Day is a day that is not as highly celebrated as it should be. Yes, moms absolutely matter, but guess what America: dads should be honored too. It seems we place way more emphasis on Mother’s Day then we do for Father’s Day and I...

Good Customer Service Matters!

UNITED STATES—We have talked countless times in the past about how bad customer service tends to transpire at many of our favorite retailers, companies that provide services and so much more. When you have a bad experience it totally frustrates you in a way that makes you want to never visit that establishment or utilize that service ever again....

Money Does Not Grow On Trees

UNITED STATES—It’s a firm belief that as soon as you get it disappears into thin air. You might have an idea what I’m referring to, but on the other hand some of you still might be in the dark. I’m talking about money. I feel like the more you have the quicker it vanishes from your hands. Money just...

Graduate Gifting Dilemma

UNITED STATES—May and June, those are the two months that highlight milestones for most Americans: graduation season. You might have a youngster graduating from preschool, kindergarten or middle school. Then you have the big events, high school and college graduation. I think the next 5 years, I have graduations to attend, rather its middle school, high school or college,...

Summertime Activities

UNITED STATES—Summer does not officially kick off until June 21, but its warm enough in most parts of the country and the amount of sunlight is stretching beyond 9 p.m. in most parts of the United States. With that being said, many people are spending way more time outside, and that means it’s time to start thinking about summer...

Racial Profiling Still Exists People

UNITED STATES—I felt the need to talk about this column because of the recent incident involving musician Sza at a visit to the Sephora store in Calabasas, California. This column is a difficult one to say the least, but it’s a conversation that we must have. It seems still in the year 2019, race is still a major issue...

Mental Labor Vs. Physical Labor

UNITED STATES—It has been a question that I’ve debated for years and I get plenty of blow back from people that I know all the time. Is a job that requires mental strength more exhaustive than a job that requires physical strength? It is a very loaded question and to be honest there is no clear-cut right or wrong...

Vacation More Often

UNITED STATES—Summer has arrived, and for many Americans the notion of taking a vacation has kicked into full gear. I always wondered why so many people waited until the summer months to take time off. I think I’ve figured out the answer. What is it? It’s quite, simple, the weather is warm and kids are out of school. Look,...
