Most Americans struggle to keep their finances under control. In fact, a 2018 study showed that 55% of respondents feel lost when it comes to long-term financial planning. Moreover, less than half of respondents could explain the definition of a 401K, 48% could define interest, and only 34% could confidently explain how inflation works. Even more importantly, despite the fact that the majority of Americans create budgets for themselves, 70% say they struggle to stick to them!

Keeping track of the money coming in and going out of your accounts doesn’t have to be some weighty burden. In fact, there

Ailbhe Reddy: Personal History Album Review

Lenore Staats

Whether it’s a first therapy appointment or a first date, downloading an abridged version of yourself can feel like the most perfunctory of intimate experiences. For Dublin-based singer-songwriter Ailbhe Reddy, it’s far more interesting to think about what remains unsaid. On the title track of her debut album, Personal History, Reddy pines tentatively for her ex and “the romance of watching TV,” before the drums crash in to underscore her frustrated howl: “I don’t wanna go on dates/And hear personal histories.” Playing with the clinical undertones of the title, which is taken from the term for medical records, it’s

Credit Cards vs. Personal Loans: What’s the Difference?

Lenore Staats

If you find yourself in a situation where you need a little financial help, take time to think about your options. Automatically reaching for a credit card — or applying for a personal loan — might not be the best money move.

According to the Federal Reserve, consumer debt increased $12.3 billion month over month in July 2020. Interestingly, revolving debt, which includes credit card debt, decreased about $300 million. But nonrevolving debt, which includes personal loans, grew by $12.6 billion.

Bottom line: If you have debt or are facing an expensive but necessary purchase, you can choose how you

First debate between Trump, Biden marked by chaos, rancor as candidates made it personal

Lenore Staats

But it was the belligerent tone that was persistent, somehow fitting for what has been an extraordinarily ugly campaign. The two men frequently talked over each other with Trump interrupting, nearly shouting, so often that Biden eventually snapped at him, “Will you shut up, man?”

“The fact is that everything he’s saying so far is simply a lie,” Biden said. “I’m not here to call out his lies. Everybody knows he’s a liar.”

The presidential race has been remarkably stable for weeks, despite the historic crises that have battered the country this year, including a pandemic that has killed more

Biden, Trump name call, lob personal attacks in first debate

Lenore Staats

The first presidential debate Tuesday quickly devolved into name-calling, shouting, and personal insults as President Donald Trump rattled off attacks against Democrat Joe Biden, unfettered by a moderator who struggled to keep calm.

Pressed repeatedly, Trump refused to condemn extremist supporters or urge them to stay peaceful in the event of a disputed election, including the white supremacists and far-right militia groups that support him and committed recent acts of violence in his name.

“Proud Boys, stand back and stand by,” Trump said, referring to one group the FBI has characterized as an extremist group with ties to white nationalism.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may have denied they are working with Netflix on a reality TV show about their day-to-day lives as royals living in California and promoting worthy causes, but that doesn’t mean the Duke and Duchess of Sussex didn’t offer to participate in some kind of documentary about their dramatic departure from the royal family, according to The Daily Mail.

Many small businesses are dealing with worst-case scenarios during the coronavirus pandemic: Revenue is down as lenders have tightened up borrowing standards.

When a company has maxed out a business line of credit and can’t get a conventional business loan, a personal loan may cover payroll or vendor invoices.

Entrepreneurs can be so passionate that “they will do anything to keep (their companies) going, whether that’s a good idea or not,” says Brooke Lively, president and founder of Cathedral Capital, which provides chief financial officer services for small businesses.

Senator Thom Tillis speaks to FOX8 about how his personal life shapes his political goals

Incumbent Senator Thom Tillis says he rarely publicly discussed his upbringing until the 2020 election season but points to it as what he calls a “huge contrast” between he and challenger Cal Cunningham.  

“I grew up with six kids. My father, my mother didn’t get high school diplomas,” Tillis said.

Tillis says his family moved seven times before he turned 16, going wherever his parents could find work. This resulted in Tillis going to five different elementary schools and three middle schools. 

“Grew up in trailer parks that are still standing,” Tillis recalled. “One in Nashville and one in Jacksonville,
