Two years ago, our oldest son graduated with a Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering. He flew to Portland, Oregon for a job interview. Without hesitation he packed a truck, hitched his car to the back and, just like that, he moved 2,400 miles from home. Why would he...

Two years ago, on a crisp fall day, Nancy suggested we have an office lunch at the state fair. We stood in line salivating over the smells of funnel cakes and other deep fried foods waiting for our turn to order. We dined on all the finest of fair foods: chicken on a s...

Our throwback today takes us back a decade to 2007. Nancy wrote a column for the Mississippi Business Journal shortly after the 4th Annual Mississippi CFA Forecast Dinner. Ten years later, and the annual event is still with us. Earlier this year, we attended the 14th o...

Today's throwback is to a column Nancy wrote in the fall of 2006 in the Mississippi Business Journal. Her topic? Insurance in the wake of a catastrophic hurricane. 

I hate insurance. It feels like wasted money. You pay in big, fat premiums, in hopes you'll never have to...

As I looked through past newsletters, columns and television segments to find today's throwback, one in particular caught my eye, because it had to do with a hurricane. Since Harvey has water-logged parts of Texas and Louisiana, and Irma, the most powerful storm record...

Our throwback this week is to a newsletter Nancy wrote at the end of summer thirteen years ago. That August in 2004, NASA launched it's Mercury probe, MESSENGER, which became the first spacecraft to orbit the planet closest to our sun (though it was a seven year journe...

We look back over twenty years to the fall of 1996 in today's throwback to a column Nancy wrote in the Mississippi Business Journal. She shares how her views on money were influenced by her grandparents, who grew up in the wake of the Great Depression. This event shape...

Our throwback today is to a column Ryder wrote two years ago with ideas to help teach kids about finance. A few FREE resources available from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau can be found online HERE. The CFPB provides fun activities and conversations for use w...

In 1998, Nancy visited the Financial District in NYC. What she witnessed twenty years ago on the New York Stock Exchange isn't exactly what you'd see today if you visited. Technology has changed the landscape, and more trading is done electronically rather than on the...

Next week brings with it the first day of summer. In anticipation of the season, our throwback today is to the newsletter Nancy wrote in the summer of 1999. Enjoy!

Ah... the lazy days of summer. Everything and everyone seems to slow down a bit during the summer months....

Today we head back to the summer of 1999. The Internet wasn't what it is today, but we did have online trading. In a column in the Mississippi Business Journal, Nancy reminds readers to choose carefully from whom they take investment advice. The Internet has made tradi...

Our throwback this week is to Nancy's December 1995 column in the Mississippi Business Journal. Back then, the Dow had crossed over 5,000. (For perspective, in the now, the Dow closed at the end of May 2017 just above 21,000.) Over and over, Nancy was being asked the s...

Today's throwback is to November of 1998. For context, since '98 was almost two decades ago, here's where the market was then (November 2, 1998) compared to now:

S&P 500 (then): 1,111.60

S&P 500 (now): 2,404.39

Nasdaq (then): 1,800.91

Nasdaq (now): 6,163.02

Dow Jones (then)...
