I’d like to share with you part of an exclusive excerpt given to The Land Report from Todd Wilkinson’s new book on my father, Last Stand, Ted Turner’s Quest to Save a Troubled Planet. This is such a great book!
Clark Howard, a New York Times Bestselling Author and one of Atlanta’s favorite personalities, has just released his new book, Living Large For the Long Haul: Consumer-Tested Ways to Overhaul Your Finances, Increase Your Savings, and Get Your Life Back on Track.

Clark uses these stories to offer realistic advice on how to maximize your savings, retirement and costs.
I’m excited to share that yours truly is featured in one of Clark’s chapters. (more…)

As you’re acting on your New Year’s resolutions, don’t forget to include the basic lifestyle changes you can make to help the environment! Just think: you could recycle more at your home, make the switch to LED light bulbs, use less water, buy a more fuel efficient car, or even just have the kids put down the video games and go out into nature in 2013.
