ON OUR WAY TO WEALTHY: Even with the full understanding that some accidents and illnesses cannot be avoided, few small business owners plan for the unexpected. One step in the planning process is to make sure proper insurance coverage is in place.
For the most part, we are all accustomed to purchasing the basic insurance policies that cover our home, car and life. But there are different types of disability income insurance plans that will protect income and even pay bills when necessary.
Disability income insurance is designed to maintain financial stability when you are sick, hurt or unable to work by providing a monthly income directly to the business owner. It is typically used as the primary income replacement that helps prevent the depletion of savings and retirement income.

"Linsanity" was born in early 2012 when Jeremy Lin, now the starting point guard for the NBA's Houston Rockets, rose to prominence with the New York Knicks as he was on the verge of being cut.
Lin, who consistently points to his faith as his means of dealing with both disappointment and success, talks here about "Linsanity," the new documentary chronicling both his commitment to Christ and his meteoric rise to superstardom.
Kam Williams: Hi Jeremy, thanks for the interview.
Jeremy Lin: My pleasure, Kam.
KW: Why did you allow a film crew to shoot this documentary, especially since they started following you around while you were still at Harvard, well before you became an overnight NBA sensation? Did you have a hunch about how your story was going to turn out?

"Life for many black boys is akin to a war. Wars on their minds, souls, spirits and yes, even their bodies take place on a daily basis. It is my desire that our sons become equipped with an artillery of excellence, weapons of mass knowledge/information and a navigation/GPS system that will help them avoid life's roadblocks...
"The co-author of this book, Dr. Michael Nellums, an accomplished educator... and I are dedicated to creating a resource for parents, students and community members. Our work in environments populated with black male students has propelled us to join in the pursuit to write this book...
"It is our firm belief that readers will find our project meaningful and helpful in their fight to combat the numerous and varied challenges that impact our boys."

LIVING THE LIFE I LOVE: Dear Lucy: Things have really been mixed up for me lately. I have done some things to the people I love. I have tried to explain to them. But I just can't find the right words. They are all mad at me and I want their understanding and forgiveness. It's like I am speaking a foreign language. I'm all talked out and can't listen to them beat up on me any more.
Dear "all talked out": It really is hard sometimes to explain to yourself and others the reasons for your actions, pain or transgression. Often it seems impossible. And friends and family can be just as confused and hurt as we are. In their confusion they try to make sense of it in ways that just bring more hurt and confusion. Next thing you know, everybody is wallowing in guilt, hurt, shame and guilt.
