Aries (March 21 - April 19)
It's a day when everything feels all wrong. It's not, though, so be sure to give yourself a reality check early and often. Adding up the numbers is a good way to make sure you're dealing with the real bottom line rather than the one in your head.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Money brings out some pretty deep emotions in everyone today, but especially you. It might not be all bad, though -- you are as likely to feel passionately about succeeding as you are to feel jealous or possessive.

Before you even had money, your parents determined how you'd handle it with their comments about finances. Decode your "money script" and rewrite it here. By Sandy M. Fernandez, REDBOOK.
I've always remembered the advice my father gave me when I was a bookish middle schooler, considering writing as a career. "Do what you love," he would tell me. "The money will follow." This was remarkably generous: My family had recently arrived from Central America, cash was tight, and my dad was, of all things, an economist. He didn't take money matters lightly, and while his words were meant to be freeing, they came with a tricky subtext: If money simply "followed," then I really didn't need to worry about it. That message became part of my "money script"--a term financial therapists use for phrases that reveal our core beliefs about earning, saving, and spending. "Your money personality can be directly related to the things your parents said," says New York-based psychotherapist Kachina Myers, w...Read More »

Jeff Walker entered the online marketing arena in the summer of 1996. At that time he was publishing a newsletter geared towards stock market trading and investing. By the end of that year he had over 1,000 subscribers, and so he decided to create a paid version of the same newsletter. He realized that he would need to offer something exceptional in order to inspire people into paying for the newsletter. He recognized quickly that there would need to be a sequence of communications that would gently lead them away from the idea of getting his newsletter for free to actually wanting to pay him.

A student asked me to review her resume. She had just failed my business development class because she turned in no work.
I always worry about the effect on someone's career, student visa, chances of getting into another graduate program, and just their general state of mind when I have to turn in a failing grade to the university.
While students clearly know they aren't turning in assignments during the semester, I try to remind them before the course ends, so there's no question when the grade arrives. In her case, the week before the class ended I confirmed with her that she was failing. When she arrived in our last class she announced to me that she was "good with failing."
It gets weirder. Because the holiday took a day out of our course schedule, I offered a one-on-one half-hour to the students in class, for career coaching or my insight into a business development issue.
So, Ms I-Fail-And-Feel-Good-About-It scheduled her half-hour. Then, she emailed her resume to...Read More »
