FINANCIAL FREEDOM AND SECURITY WITH JESSICA PING

2020-03-01T09:05:27-05:00

Photo by Heidi McClelland By Kristen Domingue We recently sat down with Jessica Ping, a financial advisor who grew up in Saline and currently lives in the Ann Arbor/Saline area. Throughout her school years, she was a stand-out student athlete, and now she continues to excel in the dynamic playing field of finance. Our favorite part about the interview with Jessica was her financial confidence in her own life and how she lends that confidence to her clients. Jessica’s non-judgemental and supportive approach is what we hope all women can experience when it comes to their relationship with their financial advisor. [...]

ÉIRE GO BRÁCH: WHO IS THIS GUY & WHY ARE WE DRINKING SO MUCH FOR HIM?

Photo by Khara Woods on Unsplash By Liz Crowe Welcome, Brick Readers, to your monthly advice/education/breaking with the monthly theme content, also known as Booze 101. It’s March. So we’re going to talk about this month’s holiday. Part I: Let’s discuss a few common myths. This Patrick guy was born in Ireland, destined to be its patron saint. St. Patrick chased all the snakes out of Ireland.  St. Patrick’s Day is an excuse to drink too much, usually on a weekday. Wearing green is mandatory on St. Patrick’s Day, and it’s the official start of beer-drinking season. Allow me to address [...]

Photo by Ranier Ridao on Unsplash By Jen DeGregorio In 2019, my goal was to get really good at one thing. Maybe I would learn French, or improve my knitting skills. As resolutions often go, I didn’t do either of those things. However, when the summer came, I decided to take a huge career leap. After years of doing freelance PR and marketing for various local non-profits, I joined The ChadTough Foundation as the Director of Communications. In my new position, I’d be interviewing families that have had or currently have a child fighting pediatric brain cancer. It was scary and exciting to have [...]

HOW WE GET FROM HERE TO THERE

Photo on Unsplash By Kellie Mox My husband Blake and I are those people who ponder our next adventure before we’re even home from our last one. We love to travel.  We don’t relish the flight delays, the kids arguing in the backseat, or the packing and unpacking. Rather, we love that travel brings new experiences. Exploring new places allows us to interact with new people, landscapes, food, music, and ways of being. Travel invites new perspectives and opens our minds, hearts, and spirits. And, whether we do it alone or together, we find that it cultivates connection and learning about ourselves [...]

A DESIGNER’S EYE ON LONDON

In fact, research shows the experience of travel has several health and psychological benefits. A joint study from the Global Commission on Aging (in partnership with the US Travel Association) reports that workers who travel at least twice a year show “significantly lower risk of suffering a heart attack than those who only travel every six years or so.”*  Personally, I always find myself more motivated than ever after I return home from a trip. It’s [...]

TOP TRAVEL TRENDS FOR 2020

2020-03-01T09:05:58-05:00

Photo by Svetlana Gumerova on Unsplash By Beth Johnston Is travel a goal for you this year? It definitely is for me. Are you curious about what’s hot in travel this year as we begin a new decade?   Here are my picks for the top travel trends. The educator in me has chosen to present them using the five W’s and one H (Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How). Who?  The most common groups of travelers are multigenerational immediate family, and skip-gen (grandparents and grandchildren). Families want to disconnect from technology and reconnect with each other. This type of family [...]
