The Time Value of Money

Why does it matter to invest as much money as you can, the earliest that you can even if you stop later in life? Because of the Time Value of Money. I showed this example to my kiddos several years ago and it was a lesson I learned some 20+ years in the distant past.... Continue Reading →

I don't think money should be discussed... Continue Reading →

Quick Reflection on 20 Years

Today is a pretty special day as I cross the 20 year milestone as an employee with Microsoft. I still remember my first day like it was yesterday. So many things have transpired since January 2001.
