Why Being Rich In Relationships Is a Key to Wealth (a 90+ Year Friendship)

Steve Harvey featured two women on his show. They happen to be best friends and their friendship started when they were six-years old (they’re both over 100). Steve asked them to comment on a pop culture and you’ll die laughing at their responses.

judge-jI don’t watch much television, but I cannot miss my girl, Judge Judy. She’s brash, sassy and wise – and I love how she puts people in their place with some choice words.

Here are the first 3 of 7 things I’ve learned about money while watching Judge Judy. I’ll share the remaining 4 in a follow-up post.

Tales of the Faithfully Rich (And Unrich)

I stumble upon stories that I never have the time – or enough words – to blog about. So, here’s a round-up of stories of the Faithfully Rich (people who have this money thing figured out) and the Faithfully Unrich (people who need a slap upside their head) that I’ve read this week.

I leave to you to figure out the difference between the Faithfully Rich & Unrich…

Scam Alert: Crooks Posing as Your Government Tax Office to Steal Your Money or Tax Rebate

Millions of Americans and Canadians across North America will be filing their personal taxes before their government’s deadlines (April 15th in the United States and April 30th in Canada). The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) highly advise their citizens to file before the deadline to avoid late penalties.

Sadly, many are falling for a scam that’s robbing them of their money…

Crooks are posing as IRS and CRA employees and are calling American and Canadian citizen to say that they owe money and they need to pay right now. Typically, the citizen is told to wire money to the “office” or purchase a pre-paid credit card to send money to them so the debt can be cleared.

It’s a scam; don’t fall for it…

Here are some articles detailing this fresh new tax scam.

What I Gained as an Anglophone With the Parti Quebecois Loss

flagI learned my first French words when I was 13-years old. My Grade 8 teacher, Mrs Drabique, spent an hour a day teaching us French.

I then fell in love with the language…

In high school, I took a French class all four years. Only one French course was required to graduate with a high school diploma, but I took a course in my freshman, sophmore, junior and senior years.

In university, I majored in French. I didn’t do too well. I decided to drop French as a major and instead, take French conversational classes just so I didn’t lose my French language skills.

Because of my love of the French language, I became engrossed in its national and international news…

I’d read L’Acutalité each month, a Quebec version of Maclean or Time magazines. I’d watch RDI, the French equivalent of CNN or CBC. I soaked up French news left, right and centre so I could not only improve my French comprehension skills, but also be in the know.

I became so utterly aware of sovereignty…

What You’re Missing Out on When You Don’t Ask

I was reading an article on NPR about the state of women in the financial industry.

The person interviewed was Sallie Krawcheck, the former president of global wealth and investment management for Bank of America. When asked about negotiating salaries, bonuses and pay raises, Sallie had this to say…

“What I’ve found over time is that when it would come to bonus time or raise time, I would hear from the gentlemen, “I want to make X.” Say we’ve got two employees, Joe and Joanne. They’re both set to make $5 in bonus. Joe comes into my office and says, “Hey Sallie, I’ve had a great year, I’d like to make $10 this year.”

After Joe leaves, I call the head of HR, and we sort of say, “Can you believe this? Joe wants to make $10, he’s in for $5, ha ha ha.” But, we don’t want to lose him. So we put him in for $7. And that means Joanne isn’t going to get the $5 we had planned. She’s going to get $3. Because the bonus pool doesn’t go up. She sees her bonus actually reduced.”

The Bible is quite clear that we need to ask. In Matthew 7:7, it states:

Cashflow Breakthrough Tip: How to Get Out of an Agreement You Don’t Like

Saying “Yes” without knowing the details can cause you so much grief. Just because you like the person and just because they’re your friend doesn’t mean you should say “Yes” right away.

I got burned recently when a friend asked me to speak at an event she was organizing. I immediately said “Yes” because I know, like and trust her.

But then, she sent the agreement and I didn’t like what I saw. Had I seen the agreement before I said “Yes,” I would NOT have agreed to speak. But given that I had already said “Yes,” I had to stand behind my “Yes.”

What I didn’t like doesn’t matter; the issue is that…
