It’s an understatement to say that the political discourse in our country is a mess! And the problem isn’t that you just disagree- that you think someone on the other side of the political aisle has the wrong opinion. That’s certainly a part of it, but the major political issues of the day that Americans are rightly discussing require patience and a nuanced understanding of different ideas to make progress. Instead, we have anonymo...

We’ve all heard about the minimalist lifestyle- maybe you’re picturing a bearded hipster drinking coffee in his perfectly white dining room or an Instagram worthy, perfectly styled modern kitchen. It turns out that’s not what minimalism is all about- it’s about priorities. We felt that that summer is a great time to hit reset on a number of things in life, including the vast amount of clutter that many of us surround ourselves with...

Think back to when you were a kid- can you remember an instance where you asked your parents a question, and instead of explaining the actual answer, they just said “Because I said so”. How frustrating! Or maybe in middle school you were horrified to even be seen with your folks in public because of something they were wearing. You’d say to yourself “I’m never going to be like parents!”. Well that was us to a T, and we always thoug...

The CDC definition of a parasite is: an organism that lives on or in a host and gets its food from or at the expense of its host. They’re not necessarily out there to completely destroy you- at least not immediately. Instead they want you to go on living your life, so that they can leach as much as they can while they get fat and happy, hopefully without you even noticing. And that’s exactly how we feel about crappy financial produ...

Everyone loves a good comeback story- exceeept when it’s the villain who is making the comeback! That's basically how we feel about the mullet. We can all pretty much agree that mullets are the most villainous hairstyle. It had its heyday back in the 80s and is now back in full-business-in-the-front-party-in-the-back-force. Similarly, that’s how we feel about consumer debt. Credit card debt levels drastically dropped with the o...
