On The Givers

I plan on reading that this weekend! In my work I've found executives who are willing to help us lowly folk, though I don't know how they've treated their own peers on the way up the ladder. And I like the term 'disagreeable giver' - I believe I've evolved this way over time as well, and I am now intrigued enough to get this book. Thanks for posting!

On On Being An OK Person In An Age of Personal Brands

I'm so glad you got your money back and feel, "Shame on DJ!" (obviously they themselves are shameless.) On the question of how are you supposed to behave, once you've built up a successful brand? Well, the same way all of us are supposed to behave - with integrity!

bravo, Mike! I loved this. While student loans are a big factor of one's financial situation, you don't have to let them define you.

On "Your Children Deserve To Know What You Make" Uh OK

@Ester Bloom I actually saw this author speak last year when he was writing this book, and he told the story about dividing the cash on the table! But he didn't say it was all in $1-bills, sheesh.

On "Your Children Deserve To Know What You Make" Uh OK

@GiraffeGaffe I didn't know my parents' earnings until I was applying for financial aid in college, too, and I doubt they would have offered to let me know the exact number otherwise.

On Take the Vacation

@BornSecular I totally agree! This is the sentence that caught my eye, too. Megan, you gotta treat yo'self! A vacation isn't just one thing either, it's a series of experiences, and they don't need to all be pricey. And studies say that even the process of planning a vacation brings you even more joy.
