Tales of the Trailblazers

Tweet This is a 1998 article from FORTUNE, about the 34 women of Harvard Business School’s Class of 1973 (the first year that HBS had a “significant” portion of the class be female – 4.4%). Even though this article is almost 10 years old (can you believe that the 90s were TEN years ago!? I […]

Savings, schmavings

Tweet Recently I’ve decided to tweak my retirement/emergency fund savings a little – I’ll still be saving roughly the same amount ($2,200-$2,500 a month), but I’m going to decrease my retirement savings a bit and increase my emergency fund savings by a couple hundred bucks.

I haven't bought Starbucks since August 29

Tweet Yes, that is correct. My credit card statement confirmed it – yours truly has not spent a single penny at Starbucks since the $3.40 soy vanilla latte over a month ago. I think this might be the longest I’ve gone without Starbucks in… well, a long time. Anyhow, my credit card statement for September […]
