Dating In Financial Darkness

Alright, I’ll admit it: I get some twisted form of guilty pleasure from a few reality shows. Last night I was watching “Dating In The Dark” – ABC’s show about twenty- and thirty-something singles who go on dates in a pitch-black room.

Americans Living Like Spartans

Growing up, I recall my dad regularly saying, “I don’t need much; I can live a Spartan existence.” I was confused by that, because didn’t the Spartans hide in a huge horse and then jump out and attack their enemies? (No, it turns out, those were the Trojans.)

“Last week the government said economic growth for the second quarter slowed to 2.4 percent. Many analysts believe it will dip further in the second half of the year as high unemployment, shaky consumer confidence and renewed troubles in housing weigh on the year-old economic recovery.”

Profile Information

What is the goal or dream that you have that you've been unable to attain?
I'd love to speak to a big group of people - 300 or more - and have them laugh while learning there is still hope for their lives and their money.
What is your passion?
I have a passion for helping others establish a plan and then realize their financial goals. How we use money is usually indicative of underlying behaviors and habits that are either driving us toward or pulling us away from the goals and dreams we aspire to accomplish.
What can the members of this site help you with? (If you don't ask you won't get help).
Help me by contributing to the on-going conversations here at Beyond Past Due. Everyone has something to contribute and something to gain. Feel free to ask your questions and offer your insight!
What is your website?

Money Funnies

I can't help but laugh at some of the crazy (albeit creative) things people will do with their money. Personal finance can actually be pretty funny. Check out these links and have a laugh or two:

I did actually do a health show with him awhile back. I think it was only his second or third show, but it was a blast. I should talk with him about getting on there again.
