#8 - How Much Income Do I Need For Retirement? - "So will you spend more or less in retirement than you do today? That is a judgment call that only you can answer. Here are some useful guidelines."
#7 - The Importance of Accomplishments - "The resume is not a story about your responsibilities or duties. It is not just a job description. It is about the facts: What did you do? What did you accomplish? In today’s job market competencies supported by accomplishments are the focus. Simply listing a bunch of competencies on a resume without any supporting accomplishments just does not cut it."

#4 - Spend Like You Want to Grow Rich - "If we’re interested in building wealth, perhaps we should all make a pledge to ourselves much like a doctor’s Hippocratic oath: above all, DO NO HARM. We’re living in an era of instant gratification. If we want to communicate with someone half a world away, we can do that immediately with a text message or a phone call. If we want to purchase something and have it delivered to our door, it’s possible to do that with a mobile phone and a credit-card number— even if we don’t have the money to pay for it."
#3 - Make the Best of Your Investment in College - "College should prepare you for finding a good job and a rewarding career. Your college years can be a training period in which you develop your general skills in order both to get a great job right out of college or graduate school and to succeed in the workplace. By taking advantage of the opportunities that college offers, you can build the base of skills you need not only to land your first job but also to excel at it. Once that happens, you will be on your way to a lifetime of rewarding work."
#2 - “Do What You Love” Is Bad Advice - "We all get told at some point (if not over and over again), 'Do what you love and the money will follow,' and it’s just plain bad advice. The number of people who make a lot of money doing what they love is so insignificantly small that it’s an unrealistic and useless thing to model. The most unfortunate thing about this is that it makes people feel like they are failing when they don’t achieve it."
#1 - Creative Life Planning Solutions For Retirement - "You want to focus your retirement planning energy on what really matters: your assumptions."
