There are plenty of other websites out there giving you advice on traveling to Cuba. I’ll share my own two bits: Traveling from the United States We found traveling to Cuba to be very easy. It wasn’t noticeably different than any other international flight. We checked into our flight at the computer kiosk at JFK....

The time leading up to our trip to Cuba was full of uncertainty. I felt like I was slowly marching toward a closing door. You may remember in 2014, Obama loosened up travel restrictions with Cuba and airlines could then fly directly from the United States. Under those rules, there were 12 allowable reasons to...

In the week that we’ve been back from Cuba, I’ve had a difficult time answering, “How was it?” There are more obvious ways to describe Cuba as a beautiful country and the people as warm and welcoming. But what I took away from the adventure were the more nuanced observations. For those interested in our...

Every election in my adulthood has been about jobs and which candidate can deliver the most jobs. At least, it has been primarily about this among various other economic measurements and notions (income inequality, minimum wage, etc.).

Back in April 2016, the market became the 2nd longest bull market in history. The market continues to march upward … em … flatling on this bull streak. The longest bull market was from 1987-2000. For this to beat it, it would have to keep going until the year 2021 (Source: http://money.cnn.com/2016/04/29/investing/stocks-2nd-longest-bull-market-ever/). The question I...

Unfortunately, this is sometimes the line I find myself telling people in poor financial shape. If someone is at the point where they need to stop working, and they haven’t saved much, they’re looking at living a very modest lifestyle. The longer my career goes on, the less I seem to encounter this, but every...

Last night I had a meeting with some very long time clients of mine. Over the years our families have become close. Apart from having natural chemistry with them, I feel that one of the things that has made our financial advising relationship so successful has been that we have open communication. Our meetings are...
