Since I was off on an adventure in Orlando Florida I wasn’t able to do the direct interview with NASCAR Rookie driver Cole Whitt who we co-hosted a live Twitter Chat with on Tuesday of this week, and let me tell you; Cole handles his Twitter business for sure! But I digress. I called the one person I knew of who knew more about NASCAR than any other person I know,
I called Z from NASCAR Race Mom, and asked if she would be so kind as to cover the interview and it turns out, that not only was she excited for it but she also had apparently been following Cole’s racing since he was 5 years old and running in the Tricycle and Big Wheel circuit! I’m kidding of course. But check out her interview with Cole below. Continue Reading
Acquired: Fabergé, Gemfields

We in the United States of America are coming out of what has been called the worst economic recession since the great depression of the 1930′s. However with all of the changes in employment and real estate houses in communities like Sausalito, Newport Coast, Bel Aire, and numerous others like it were still selling for well into the millions of dollars.
People still flocked to stores which sold luxury items, more and more private jet charters came into being. I can think of at least four new services myself. There is no question that these are luxuries that the “common” man just isn’t likely to ever get to enjoy, yet even in a recession these things continued to pop up. What accounts for this? Well Bob McKee who is global fashion industry strategy director at Continue Reading
While I was in junior high School I read a book called ‘Think and Grow Rich’ by Napolean Hill. The title struck me, as the first word in it was think! Well in what seems like the follow up to the mission of Napolean Hill who interviewed the wealthy of his time, there was another study done. After three decades of interviewing self-made rich people, Steve Siebold, author of “How Rich People Think,” has come to the conclusion that well-to-do people have views about money that are “polar opposite” to those that middle-class people hold.
“Rich people see money as freedom and opportunity instead of as the root of all evil,” says Siebold. “We’re taught that money is the root of all evil, so why would we want to acquire something that we have a general disdain for?”
Siebold’s book reveals 100 differences between middle-class people and self-made millionaires. We asked him to share some ways that rich people think differently than those of us with less money in the bank.
Here are five examples: Continue Reading
Hawaiian Airlines will offer daily year-round service between Los Angeles and Maui this summer to answer increasing demand from the Southern California market.
More than 120,000 air seats will be added to both Los Angeles and Maui’s travel markets when the new non-stop service launches on July 1, 2014.
