It's the jolly holiday season - but if you're like most Americans, it's also the season of overspending and under-budgeting. If so, you may want to consider a cash-only Christmas.

Marty Nemko believes that the job-hunting public has been sold a bill of goods when they’re told to follow their passions. For a select few—those who are bright, uniquely talented, uber-motivated and genuinely passionate, he says—that advice works out like gangbusters. For thousands of others, it’s impractical.

Thomas Watson, Sr., once said that to be successful, you have to have your heart in your business, and your business in your heart. This is a thought that seems to be driving the executive team of i-10 Hospitality, a Louisiana-based management company specializing in restaurant, hotel and gaming development, management and consulting services.

If someone asked you to borrow a bundle of money to start a new business, would you hand over the cash, no questions asked? Probably not. You’d have more than a few questions about the plans and potential for the business’s success you’d want answered before you decide to take a chance on helping a new business get off the ground.

When potential loan holders have less-than-desirable or nonexistent credit or a meager income, they will often turn to a co-signer for help. Co-signers, who typically have well-established credit, can be an invaluable asset to someone who can’t secure a loan on their own. And often, co-signers are willing to help—they’re usually a close friend, family member or parent.

Lucky number seven. It’s the key to a lot of things in life. It’s been said that there are seven steps to heaven, seven types of intelligence and seven habits of effective leaders. How about seven steps to a sound retirement?

It’s cap-and-gown season again, and for college graduates, this means it’s time to face the stark reality of the so-called "Real World.” For most, life after the final semester is marked by more independence, which typically means more responsibility and more control over the green in your wallet.

When you're young, spry and healthy it's difficult to imagine a time when you may need a nurse, aide or caretaker to help you get from here to there, but if you wait until you need it, you may find yourself in a bind.

When young adults run out of money or find themselves in a financial pickle, parents are typically the first stop for relief. Wading through your child's personal budget troubles can be frustrating. There is often an urge to step in and take over, but there are effective ways to do that without risking your own financial security, according to Lyles McDaniel, Senior Vice President with Lakeside Bank.

Tax season is here, and if you are one of the lucky ones, you may get a tax refund this year. Whether you’ve already received it or are eagerly awaiting it, it’s tempting to view this refund as "free money,” but keep in mind, this is really just your money that the government is returning, so you should not necessarily treat it as a windfall, according to Christa Comeaux, assistant vice president with Lakeside Bank.

Need to pay a bill or order dinner on the go? No worries. Today’s cell phones have made it convenient to do just about anything from anywhere with just the touch of a few buttons. Major retailers like Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart have even created apps allowing you to shop from anywhere. There’s no question that these options make our lives easier, but are we paying the price for them by risking the security of personal banking and credit card information?

We all look forward to the retirement years, but when they finally arrive, many Americans find themselves with less money than they expected. The downturn of the national economy several years ago caused many people to lose significant value in their retirement savings. It’s also common to underestimate the costs of retirement, or to simply realize that not enough money was put away in the first place.

It's true that money makes the world go round, but it's equally true that you can't go round the world without money - so don't take your funds for granted when you are traveling.

Natural disasters can strike at any time, in any place. Whether it's an earthquake on the West Coast, tornado in the Midwest, or a hurricane in our own backyard, the results can be devastating when nature goes on a rampage.
