Working with you to achieve a future that is greater than your past

Summer is a great time to relax and reflect. Stepping back from our day to day routine helps us realize what is most important in our lives. If you know that you are ready to make some changes in your life and want to map out your plan. We’ll help you create your plan that reflects the roadmap of your life.

FYI...Paula Harris was interviewed by Reuters for the article Generation gaps shape workplace choices, conflicts published on July 13.

Time to Share. Create a Buzz. TEST-DRIVE YOUR DREAM JOB. Let's face it, most of us spend the majority of our waking moments at work -- and yet few of us are actually doing work that we're passionate about. But who says it has to be that way?

At Vocation Vacations, they believe "work" can be much, much more than just a four-letter word. That's why they've made it their business to offer you the chance to test-drive your dream job -- completely risk-free! No need to quit your day job. No need to tell the boss. Just spend a couple days on a VocationVacation, working one-on-one with a VocationVacations Mentor, to see what your dream job is really like.

Cheers—Paula and Bill Harris

Single women have come a long way in real estate
These days more than one in five home buyers is a single woman.
Spurred on by a healthy real estate market, a variety of new loan options and more buying power than they had in the past, single women have become a powerful demographic in the real estate market.

The nightmare next door
What to do before your neighbor's overgrown yard, Day-Glo paint job or never-ending renovation drives down your home's value - and drives you up the wall.
You can choose your friends, you can choose to be friends with your neighbors, but for the most part, you cannot choose your neighbors.

Financial advice from Mom
Her wisdom still rings true, but not for the reasons you thought.
When you were a kid, you probably thought any and all advice from Mom was "nagging." And most likely you didn't want to listen to her thoughts on money any more than you wanted to hear about eating your broccoli or cleaning your room.

Getting notivated for the savings game
Everyone asks two basic questions about saving for retirement. The questions are obvious, but the answers may surprise you.

Are your vices killing your finances?
Light up a cigarette and grab your beverage of choice, because here comes a real eye-opener.
Most of us are well aware of the costs of the seven deadly sins. We may even know the downside of ignoring the five basic food groups. But we probably have never stopped to do the math on our three favorite vices: alcohol, cigarettes and coffee.

Keeping the bad guys from Mom & Dad
Sooner or later, con artists are going to make a run at your family's senior generation. But you're not going to let them succeed, are you?
On a February day in 2005, Tom Mitchell received a panicked phone call from his dad and stepmom in Columbiana, Ohio. Len, 82, and Ruth, 64, told him that their entire $100,000 retirement savings was lost in a real estate bond scheme sold to them by their long-time accountant and former neighbor.
