This usual bureaucracy makes ’s recent promotion of CeCe Morken from president and chief operating officer to even more impressive. The former EVP and general manager at Intuit came

Tell us about yourself. Who are you? Where are you based?

I grew up in Kansas City and went to college at the University of Kansas. While I left that area in the 80s, it is still deeply embedded in me. I am a diehard fan of my Kansas Jayhawks and was thrilled to see my Kansas City Royals and Kansas City Chiefs win recent championships.

Avoiding Investor Mistakes

Many new investors have started investing, either through a traditional securities brokerage or with one of the new “app” based brokerage firms. No matter how long you’ve been an investor, or whichever firm you choose to buy your investment from, investor mistakes occur.

Mistakes generally fall into six categories. We’re going to break down what these categories are and how to avoid these mistakes.

Don’t just look at the short term 

Short term performance is speculative. It’s long term performance that tells the complete story of an investment. While we may be tempted to invest in something that has had good short term performance, longer-term performance measures such as total return (capital gain plus dividends) are better indicators of an investment. While past performance is no guarantee of success, it is often all we have to go on.

We’re all born with this innate desire to be accepted. To fit in.

The trouble is… when you try too hard to fit in, you lose a part of yourself in the process.

And what the world needs most is for you to be you – bold, unapologetic, thoughtful, creative, take-the-world-by-storm you.

Standing out is lonely. It’s awkward. It’s scary. But you have to be different to make a difference. I’ve never been someone who fit in very easily. I’ve always pushed the limits, took risks, and gone after whatever the heck I wanted.

When I was in grade school, I worried about fitting in.  But trying to be like everyone else made me unhappy. I wasn’t like everybody else. Instead of playing with dolls and

How to write and use a unique selling proposition

When customers have a choice between two offerings, they need something that drives them to choose one option over another. That thing is a unique selling proposition (USP).

Whether customers realize it or not, they use unique selling propositions to decide what to buy and who to buy from. When shopping for a new laptop, someone who values price may choose a more affordable option over a high-performance, high-price product. Or, a health-conscious customer shopping for new makeup may choose a brand that is all-natural versus a brand that uses chemicals in its products.

Customers use unique selling propositions to decide what to buy, so brands must use USPs to show customers why they should buy from them.

Let’s look deeper into what USPs are, why they are important and how to write a unique selling proposition that will attract and keep customers.

Understanding Debt Settlement Letters

If you’re unable to pay back a large amount of debt, you might be interested in learning more about debt settlement. Debt settlement works to negotiate with your creditors to forgive all or part of your debt. Throughout this process, communication is usually done with written letters. Written letters work best to convey the clear and detailed terms you have for your creditor.

A debt settlement letter is a written proposal for you to offer a specific amount of money in exchange for forgiveness of your debt. These letters address why you’re unable to pay the debt, how much you’re willing to pay now, and what you would like from the creditors in return. Working through the proposal is how both parties determine the terms and agreements of the debt settlement exchange.
