Personal Finance


Conversations about money leave many of us feeling uneasy. But I've found that exploring the thinking, emotional reasons and relationships behind how, and why, we make certain financial decisions can open people up and, ultimately, make for some fascinating stories.

As a new father, I wondered whether there might be a right way to incentivize (see: bribe!) your child as they got older. Having interviewed enough business owners, I know some ask their families for money. Yet I was curious about those who request early inheritances

I first covered personal finance matters (many) years ago when I was at SmartMoney magazine, and where some of my reporting was discussed on CNN's Your Bottom Line and PRI/WNYC's The Takeaway.
