Posted On June 16, 2018

We grouse about their participation trophies and helicopter parenting. We stereotype them as overly entitled and self-absorbed. We laugh about their reactions to pop culture standards from before they were born. But instead of mocking millennials, we should perhaps be worried about them. A new study from the Federal Reserve Bank of St.Louis found that many millennials have never gotten over the Great Recession of the late 2000s.  The study found that the net worth of a typical family whose head was born in the 1980s, the front edge of the millennial generation, was 34 percent below expectations, and lost… Read More

Did God create the Internet?

Posted On June 13, 2018

It’s an intriguing question, and one that our guest this week on “What’s Working with Cam Marston,” Scott Klososky, examines in a book by the same title. As a technologist, Klososky is concerned with what technology is doing to us, whether its benefits to society outweigh its drawbacks, and whether we are concerning ourselves with its consequences as we should. He shares his thoughts on these topics with us, but he also delves into a technological topic that should be a lot more immediate to business owners – cybersecurity. It’s not just rogue hackers attacking governmental entities and corporations anymore…. Read More

Demystifying your paycheck: Who FICA is and why he’s taking your money

Posted On June 6, 2018

During an NBA career that spanned two decades, Shaquille O’Neal made more money per season than most of us will ever see in our lives. But when he got his first paycheck, he had a revelation with which most of us can relate: “Who the hell is FICA?” he famously asked. “When I meet him, I’m going to punch him in the face.” Michael Roe had a similar revelation, visiting his manager’s office after receiving his first paycheck to complain about being shortchanged. The experience inspired Roe to educate himself about personal finance and ultimately to create The Financial Millennial… Read More

When it comes to change, slow and steady wins the race

Posted On June 2, 2018

Change is difficult. It’s often necessary in business to usher in new leadership, to reverse an undesirable trend, to take advantage of new opportunities, or simply to keep up with or a step ahead of the competition. But we humans are naturally reluctant to accept change, predisposed to prefer the known status quo to the unknown. The result is often a workforce that is pulled kicking and screaming into the company’s new reality, retreating into the defensive position of protecting its jobs, and slowing and complicating the process with its recalcitrance. But my guest in this week’s episode of “What’s… Read More
