:: Small Business Retirement Plans

Small-business owners do not save enough for their retirements. A December 2012 report by senior economist Jules Lichtenstein of the Small Business Administration, finds that self-employed people are less likely to have a retirement plan than people who work for others, even after taking to account many differences between the two groups of people.

:: 2012 Reflections, 2013 Predictions

2012 was scarred with senseless tragedies, the Costa Concordia the majestic cruise liner, went down off the Tuscan island of Giglio, Italy when it was said the captain was showing off to islander friends. Horrific tornados that tour through the mid-western United States stole the lives of even the littlest angels. A horrific mass shooting at the Batman opening in Colorado showed a careless disregard for life. Sadly this was followed by a shooting at Seikh Temple in Oak Bridge, Wisconsin, taking the lives of worshippers.
