Short and Sweet:

Tips for living the abundant life


"Steps to Lasting Wealth"

Every money decision is a life decision. As someone once said, "Measure wealth not by the things you have, but by the things you have for which you would not take money." True prosperity, according to the original Webster’s Dictionary, is "advance or gain in anything good or desirable." True prosperity is found in our posterity, not in our portfolio. As J.W. Whitehead put it, "Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see."

Investing in the development of our children’s character is the most strategic kind of investing on earth. What greater reward is there for us than to see our children develop character qualities such as integrity, honesty, teachability, loyalty, responsibility, courage, determination, endurance, hospitality, generosity, and humility? That is why Albert Einstein once said, "Try not to become a man of success but rather try to become a man of value."
