[Tom: I’d like to welcome TheBossMD today. He writes for physicians, but I think this post applies to most high income earners that want to negotiate more job flexibility for a variety of reasons. Take it away BossMD!]   So you’ve landed your dream job, huh? Congratulations! It’s now time to talk specifics about what this job will look like. If you’re like most people, then your paycheck is the most important ...

Welcome back to the H.I.P. Examination. This is where one parent (me) asks another parent (ESI Money) about his approach to his kids in handling education, investing, and money in general. Parenting can be hard. Money can be hard. Put both together and we are probably approaching something the consistency of Wurtzite boron nitride. (Yeah, I looked that up.

Worst Financial Decision   Applicant Breanna Moore                   It’s very easy to make mistakes when it comes to finances. The countless impulse buys I’ve been guilty of throughout my high school career certainly impacted where I stand financially today.

Applicant: Emily  Risinger   What is the worst financial decision you have made and what did you learn from it?   The worst financial decision I have ever made up to this point in my life was not so much an action that I took, but an inaction. As I entered my senior year of high school, I knew that it would be important to apply for as many scholarships as possible. Like many ...

  Applicant Tyler Whitney What I Learned from the Worst Financial Decision I Have Made   Walt Disney said, “I think it’s important to have a good hard failure when you’re young.” I cherish my failures more than my accomplishments because they help me to avoid the danger of complacency inherent in success. For better or for worse, I have an abnormally large reservoir of failure to draw from. In response to the essay ...

Savings and the Importance of Where to Place your Money Applicant: Jill Moore The worst financial decision that I have made so far was to put most of the money I received into a savings account. This may not seem like the biggest mistake a person can make, but in my case, it has negatively impacted me in several ways.                        There are a couple things you should know about my money views ...

[Tom: This applicant did a great job of illustrating the financial troubles a car can cause. Even when we are young and have relatively little money, buying the wrong car repeatedly can reduce your ability to save and invest for retirement. Let’s see what Bader learned from his mistake.] Remember that the theme for this year’s scholarship was: What is the worst financial decision you have made and what did you learn ...

Welcome to Scholarship Week! For the first year of the Melissa Read Memorial Scholarship, it’s been a great success. We reached the maximum number of applicants well ahead of the deadline. We’ve also received some excellent essays. It’s been a pleasure to read the product of each applicant’s hard work and efforts. Over the past weeks, I’ve personally read each and every essay and selected the five finalists. I then passed those finalist ...

There are so many awesome bloggers and people sharing their lives and ideas around the world. I try to curate the articles and posts others write that would pertain to the target reader here. Parents, high income earners and those that fall in both category will benefit from the articles listed in the HIP Monthly Round Up. I try to find content that is relevant to raising our kids, helping our ...

From time to time other bloggers have been gracious enough to feature my writing on their own site. I love collaborating with other and introducing my readers to other writing styles. Seeking other genres of the financial blogosphere can give all of us new insights. An awesome guy named J. Money runs BudgetsAreSexy.com and he let me write a post called, Is It Possible to Invest (Socially) Responsibly?  I had a great time interacting with ...
