Twitter is a wonderful place. While it can be a mess at times, it gives you access to follow the thoughts of a huge variety of people. One who I have been paying attention to lately is former Navy SEAL and leadership trainer Jocko Willink. While a lot of his exhortatio...

Mardi Gras is next Tuesday, so this week's throwback is to the same time of year in 2006. Nancy visited the Alabama coast for the weekend before Fat Tuesday. Enjoy!

We spent the weekend before Mardi Gras in South Alabama, the original home of the over-the-top celebratio...

 In this segment of Midday Money, Nancy encourages us to get into better financial health in 2017. Watch it online here.

We don’t have full data on Christmas 2016 yet, because we have a bit of a hangover on our Christmas retail spending. It goes beyond Christmas. We’re...

For today's throwback, we'll take a look at a newsletter Nancy wrote in January of 1999 encouraging us to start the New Year off on the right foot by examining our finances. A few things have changed since the last century, and one of those things is contribution limit...

Our topic this week is the 401(k). (Not $401k...) The 401(k) is a retirement savings account which gets it's name from a section of the tax code: Section 401. I'll let Nancy explain the plan in her 2005 column. Enjoy!

 Last night, we witnessed a once in a lifetime event. The Cubs won the World Series. Even people who don't follow the sport - namely me - tuned in to watch the game unfold. My Twitter feed conveyed all the nail biting stress of fans in the best way possible, through me...

Our theme this week has revolved around discovering your values and identifying your goals. So today we head back to the summer of 1998. Nancy's daughter was about to start her senior year of high school, and Nancy was feeling the squeeze on just how much time she'd ha...

In keeping with this week's them of saving, today's throwback is a newsletter Nancy wrote in the first part of 2005. Her message: time makes a difference -- both for pop culture and in the size of your savings. You may not be able to stop time -- and I think Cher has t...

What it’s for.

Unsurprisingly, your emergency fund is for emergencies. If you remember the Great Recession – or even if you’re trying forget it – jobs were both hard to keep and hard to come by. Of course, this didn’t mean that regular monthly expenses went away too.  H...

This Thursday's throwback is an article Nancy wrote in her Mississippi Business Journal column in the fall of 1999--back to when we were all stockpiling for Y2K, Nancy was sharing her saving and spending guidelines.

I've had death on my mind. This summer, that particula...
