What’s the Point of Building Wealth?

Most of us have had a moment in our life that we imagined being wealthy. When I say wealthy, some of you may think about having money for a private jet.

The Lost Art of Conversation

When is the last time you had a great conversation? Because we live in an age of texts and emails, it sometimes feels like great conversations are a thing of the past. I will be the first to say that I am a big fan of technology, especially when I can consolidate a half hour phone call into a three-word text, but all of this technology means less time having conversations.
