2016 - Financial Wins

2015 - Cheap vs. Frugal

Cheap and Frugal - they're not the same thing.  Frugality has to do with being smart and fair in matters of personal money management.  Cheapness is more about being just too much of a tightwad - often with undesirable results.  In the 2015 issue of Focus Magazine, we'll look at various aspects of this topic.

2014 -  Launching For Success

The theme for CEWC 2014 is "Failure to Launch" - a reminder of the popular movie of the same title from a few years ago.  The movie involves the complications that arise when people fail to get motivated and get on with life.  In the 2014 issue of Focus Magazine, we look at this issue and many other matters relevant to personal finance.

2011 - The Sandwich Generation

The Sandwich Generation, otherwise known as Baby Boomers between the ages of 40 to 60. Many in this group face the dual challenge of looking after aging parents while at the same time caring for adult children – the latter being sons and daughters who have either not yet left home, or who have returned home in adulthood (sometimes with grandkids in tow) usually for financial reasons. Many concerns surround those whose nests are feathered with elderly parents and adult children, and we will be looking into these matters as the week progresses. At the same time, we invite you to explore this booklet, which offers information and advice about The Sandwich Generation. From what it means being a caregiver and handling Boomerang kids, to being money smart, family smart, and much more – the content here will be of interest, particularly if you are a Boomer interested in life’s bread and butter issues.
