Get Through Black Friday Without Getting Black & Blue

November 21, 2017

Don’t Fall Into the Black Friday Trap

Holidays, and in particular, holiday spending can leave your budget seriously bruised…even if you do hit all the sales.

Remember, the stores are offering these great bargains out of the goodness of their hearts. They’re doing it to get you to their stores (or websites) to sell you stuff beyond the 55-inch 4k, 3D capable OLED television for $49.

November 1, 2017

A few years ago, in the audience at a local tech conference in my hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia (the home of Thomas Jefferson’s University of Virginia), I was joined by co-workers from the small app-development group where I was a partner and the only woman employee. The panel discussion was about how to attract tech talent to smaller communities, and was comprised of about five leaders from area tech companies. Not surprisingly, all men.

HOW CARING ABOUT THE EARTH SAVES MONEY

September 13, 2017

I used to simply compare the price tags on organic, eco-friendly, sustainable products to ones that weren’t and always chose the cheaper option. Basically, I avoided sustainable items because I wanted to get the best deal.

However, once I took a hard look at my spending, I realized that even though I was being cost conscious, buying cheap, disposable items, I wasn’t necessarily saving money. Surprisingly, one thing that really helped me shine a light on the reality of my spending was becoming more earth conscious.

May 5, 2017

Over the course of the last year I’ve had several experiences with my financial institution that caused serious frustration. It wasn’t based on their digital offerings, their marketing efforts (or lack thereof) or their presence in the industry. The reason was ironically simple - cash.

Financial Literacy Starts at Home

April 22, 2016

If you have kids, chances are you’ve experienced a serious case of the “I Wants” when shopping with them. What exactly are the “I Wants?” Well, it’s when you go to the store with your kid in tow and they suddenly HAVE TO HAVE everything they see.

It was after one particularly annoying trip to Target for light bulbs and milk with my then 4-year old that I decided I either needed to stop taking him into stores, or I was going to have to help him better understand money.

Maybe the Smartwatch isn’t so smart

June 27, 2014

There is plenty of talk in the Fintech space about how financial institutions need to consider jumping in on the “wearable” bandwagon. I am not against mobile technology and in fact, am a huge fan.
