Most everyone knows Dolly Parton as a singer and songwriter. You might even recognize her from a few movies. But it is her entrepreneurial endeavors and generosity I feel need more recognition. To put it into today’s terms, she’s a boss! [Read more…] about Dolly Parton: Entertainer, Entrepreneur, Philanthropist
Greetings Friends of Defined Sight!
Earlier this year we we shared an article how a budget and an emergency fund go hand-in-hand. Both are underappreciated and can be overlooked; only 39% of Americans can cover a thousand dollar expense. You don’t have to be an economics genius to understand this doesn’t cut it when life throws you curve balls.
Today we bring to you 3 scenarios of why you might need a huge @$$ emergency fund. These are 3 very real life situations that could happen to you, but we hope never do.
1. Your Home Is Damaged And Insurance Doesn’t Cover It
We shared in the last post our home was damaged by a flood, caused by our neighbor and we were in the midst of battling it out with insurance companies.
Our insurance company gave us the middle finger. Nothing covered. [Read more…] about 3 Real Life Situations That Require A Huge @$$ Emergency Fund

This is a very interesting situation. It is not yours. It is someone you work closely with.
A couple months ago, you wouldn’t have entertained any other thoughts but, “NO – this person needs to retire, ASAP. They can afford it. And should go.”

Let’s back up a bit and set the scene how you came to this conclusion of, “Yes, 60 Is The Right Age To Take A Promotion.”
Don’t expect average thinking people to understand your above average dreams. “Average thinking people” sounds kind of elitist of me to write, doesn’t it? Well, I can assure you my goal isn’t to come off as an elitist or even condescending.
Lord knows I’m average in a lot of ways. Good thing I married up and am a decent BS’er (which helped in the whole married up thing). The Urban Dictionary calls this phenomenon outkicking your coverage.
I’d like to think my dreams and aspirations aren’t average though. And if you are reading this, maybe yours aren’t either. But you need to mentally prepare yourself to face those who don’t believe in you or at least in your ideas.

It doesn’t matter if you are an introvert or an extrovert, you are eventually going to need people skills. Unless you went all Into the Wild, burned your IDs, gave away your money and are living a self-sustaining life on a mountain. Then sure, maybe you don’t need people skills. I agree with Eddie Vedder society is a crazy breed, but you don’t need to run away from it.
You just need the right tools and resources to adapt and get you through the day. What would you say if I told you I know the cheapest way to further your education? You likely may spend more dining out in ONE week versus the cost of this. And it can catapult you into leadership roles (if you desire this path). As well as teach you how to write compelling blog posts that will inspire your audience to take action?
