It’s not quite a Christmas miracle, but the Phoenix Sports Commission will no longer be getting a lump of coal.
About 45 percent of Americans usually make New Year’s resolutions, according to a survey from the University of Scranton. But the same survey shows that only 8 percent of us actually keep our resolutions. Perhaps this low success rate isn’t such a tragedy when our resolutions involve things like losing a little weight or learning a foreign language. But when we make financial resolutions — resolutions that, if achieved, could significantly help us in our pursuit of our important long-term goals — it’s clearly worthwhile to make every effort to follow through.
If you’ve been around long-time investors, you’ll probably hear them say, ruefully, “If only I had gotten in on the ground floor of such-and-such computer or social media company, I’d be rich today.” That may be true — but is it really relevant to anyone? Do you have to be an early investor of a spectacular company to achieve investment success?

As we bid farewell to the 2013 football season; a crazy, cooky, memorable (for all the right and wrong reasons), let’s take a look at a few impact players.
Unwilling to wait for congressional action, a first-term state legislator is attempting to clip the wings of the National Security Agency, at least in Arizona.
There was a disc jockey, a pig, and not nearly enough blankets to combat the cold.
By now, you’ve probably heard that Arizona, like other recovering states, is in short supply of new homes. While it’s true that inventory remains tight as builders push to keep up with rising consumer demand, plenty of options exist in the marketplace for people looking to purchase a new vs. a resale home.

I just paid for the costumes, bought tickets for a performance, and occasionally picked her up after a rehearsal and raced her to her soccer game.
