A Beacon Hill Brush Off

I’ve always wanted to dispel the common investment myth that wealthy people have an automatic advantage in the stock market. So, I thought joining a Boston Brahmin social club would be the best way to explore this topic. Things did not turn out the way I expected, but the process reinforced some very basic life lessons along with investing realities.

Frightening Finance

I’m not afraid of the creepy clowns running around this year. If you really want to scare the Wicked Smart Investor on Halloween just come to my door dressed as procrastination. This horror show makes me jump right out of my skin. Okay, maybe it’s not Old Granary Burial Ground at midnight with ground fog and howling coyotes kind of scared, but the procrastination ghoul will certainly elicit blood curdling screams out of me! To be on the safe side, I’ll hang some garlic cloves on the front door before trick or treating starts.

Here are the reasons I find procrastination so scary:

7 Steps to Solve Your Money Mystery

Boston’s South Shore is home to two varieties of money mysteries. There’s a big, almost unsolvable whodunit. Then there are thousands of smaller cliffhangers easily solved if the gumshoes kept the legwork simple.

Hipsters: is your banal choice of writing instrument hampering your image ?

Consider bolstering your iconoclasty with a visit to The 2016 Commonwealth Pen Show, this Sunday at the Somerville Holiday Inn. The focus is on vintage and modern fountain pens, but other pens and writing paraphernalia suitable for collecting are also in abundance. Nathan Tardif, CEO of Noodler's Ink, one of the Bay State's premier makers of fountain pen inks, will be offering some products of historic significance to Massachusetts and sponsoring giveaways for young attendees.

Pick one restaurant and many stocks.

Diners in Boston’s beloved North End are almost guaranteed a great meal. There are so many places to choose from and the competition among restaurants is fierce. If a chef doesn’t make mouth-watering entrees, customers can easily flock to the highly rated place next door. This sets the culinary bar astronomically high. While you can only choose one restaurant for a meal, the abundance of choice reduces the risk your palate will be disappointed.

Register of Deeds Primary Polling Info?

Does anyone have any kind of polling numbers in this race? There are a few candidates I'm deciding between, but I'm not ashamed to say that any coalescing of the anti-Murphy vote would help me in my decision.

Isaac Newton Falls Prey to Stock Market Gravity

Bean Pot Brief: Investing and the Industry Life Cycle

Industries have a life cycle just like humans . Like a person’s childhood, teenage years, adulthood and golden years, industries have distinct life stages. A local example is the Nantucket whaling industry. Let’s review the lifecycle.

1659: Nantucket settled.

1752: Start up stage. Whaling voyages begin. The market for clean burning whale oil is small but growing. Industry profits are negative and large amounts of capital are required to build ships and train mariners.

Local Campaign Jumps the Gun

State Rep candidate and former mayoral candidate Charles Clemons Muhammad (that's how his tiny sign reads) was spotted on Monday morning inside the Forest Hills MBTA station. Dressed nattily in an expensive-looking suit, he chased after T patrons who probably weren't in the mood for a good chat on the issues during their morning commutes...in the middle of a heat wave.

In doing so, Clemons may have violated an unwritten rule regarding how the start of local campaigning begins the first week of August...or is it after Labor Day?

13 Investment Gurus Prove a Prediction is not a Promise

Paragon Park had a gaudy fortune telling machine in its arcade. It was called Grandma’s Prophesies and it looked like a heavily made up corpse laid out in an upright casket. But deposit fifty cents though and good old grandma sprung to life. Light bulb eyeballs lit up, the creaky head spun, and her fiberglass hands moved over a glowing crystal ball. The mystical music added to the experience along with the scents of fresh cotton candy and the Nantasket sea breeze. When grandma finished with her plexi glass enclosed gyrations, a fortune card was dispensed.

At the age of 5, I became a finance intern....

Most people struggle to pick a career. It’s considered a stroke of good luck if someone finds their vocation, a job that they truly enjoy. I do consider myself a lucky man, but I wouldn’t exactly say the leprechauns were looking out for me the day I started on my career path. I’m also not sure that I found financial planning. Maybe it found me.

Why racial disparity at BLS has nothing to do with BLS--and everything to do with the people who run the City of Boston

The recent issues at BLS being reported by the media are indicators of a larger problem within the City of Boston, and it's time for constituents of Boston's legislators and officials to hold those truly responsible accountable for their inaction.
