When you begin your workday you have two individuals who are competing to be your personal career coach for the day. The first, whose name is Donald (of the Trump variety) is dressed in a sleek, dark, and expensive suit and is waiting to take charge. Don carries all of the latest technology with everything organized, easily accessible, and he responds to emails, texts, and phone calls instantly. Don is very opinionated about everything relating to business and has the right to be since his experience and resume are perfect. Don is everything corporate America desires. Donald is going places!
Support My Club, a Phoenix-based nonprofit, launched its Match It! program on April 1 with its first partner, Quarles & Brady LLP. The program gives businesses the opportunity to enhance support to local high school clubs and teams by doubling a donor donation.

It seems so obvious now, but 25 years ago there was a lot of uncertainty about an idea of mine to create a catalog that would introduce millions of airline passengers with loads of downtime to quirky, unique products they didn’t know they needed (or, in some cases, didn’t know existed).
My role in resurrecting a dead criminal case began a few weeks back with an out-of-the-blue phone call courtesy of a private eye named Don Corbett. He phoned with news of a strange case with ties to a Mesa woman and an impending trip to Scottsdale for an interview or potentially an interrogation.
Learning didn’t always come easy for 23-year-old Scottsdale native Daniel Mazzon, as teachers said his ability to listen and comprehend the material was below average. But instead of going through the motions, Mazzon opted to venture on his own and apply the skills he had to a different project.
Family road trips are an important piece of our heritage, so it’s likely that most of us have a special road trip tucked away as a favorite childhood memory. Mine was a summer jaunt to visit family in Lake Stevens, Wash. Endless “license plate game” and “cyclops” hours later, and we arrived at our first main stop — Redwood National Park. As I unfolded myself out of our station wagon, I’ll never forget my jaw-dropping awe as I peered to look up at these giant trees kissing the sky. Although we camped only a night among the canopies of these behemoths, it’s that part of the two-week trip that was forever etched in my memory. As an adult and parent, state and national parks remain a favorite; there’s something about the unspoiled beauty and beckoning adventure that makes everyone feel like a kid.
When purchasing a home, there is always a balance in priorities between getting the home that you really want and saving money. Much of the costs (price, interest rates, property taxes, insurance, etc.) seem to be dictated by factors outside of our control. There are a few things, however, that you can do before, during and after your home purchase that might save you a few hundred (or even a few thousand) bucks.
The benefits of Roth IRAs are undeniable: no required minimum distributions (RMDs) for an owner and, perhaps best of all, no income tax on qualified distributions. For those investors who meet the income requirements to fund a Roth, choosing one is simple. Investors who exceed those limits but still want to access a Roth account can do so — if they prepare to manage the up-front costs.
When nearby New Heights Church began its now annual Easter Egg Hunt and raffle, church members never knew it would grow to the point where they would have local children hunt for more than 10,000 eggs.
A safe place to play is something that many parents and kids take for granted, but in scores of communities across the U.S., there are inadequate spaces for children to get off the streets and play different sports.
