An Uncommon Team & Approach: Winning at Financial Health in 2021 and Beyond

With a modified MLB 2020 season in full swing, American baseball fans everywhere are all in. But as we continue to navigate the pandemic uncertainty, we can turn to practical, applicable insights from baseball for much-needed investor psychology inspiration. One of the pivotal players, if not the most, in a team’s lineup is the leadoff batter. A leadoff batter is the first hitter in the batting order. He forges the path for the other players behind him. He sets the tone for his team by providing run-scoring opportunities to his teammates succeeding him. He is, so to speak, the tip of the spear…

Starting the Race and Leveling the Playing Field

Starting the Race and Leveling the Playing Field

Like the gunshots that start track and field races, there have been loud, widely heard racial gunshots over the decades that signaled a different race: the race to defeat racism and inequality. Among those “gunshots” were the murder of Emmett Till, the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Rodney King beating and the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor.
Has America truly started the race to defeat racism and inequality, or were those loud shots simply a false start in which everyone was called back to the starting line…

The Impact of Covid-19 on America’s Youth and Education’s Future

Winston Churchill said, “If you are going through hell, keep going.” This should be the battle cry for all educators this school year. For a few, it might be that terrible or surprisingly even more dreadful. The British wartime leader likely would have found COVID-19 to be a formidable opponent because it does to students what war does to soldiers…

Tip of the Cap to Bob Kendrick Who is Breaking Barriers

Tip of the Cap to Bob Kendrick Who is Breaking Barriers

Bob Kendrick is a kind, hardworking man who has dedicated countless hours of his life to preserving the legacy of African-American baseball players. He is also the President of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum (NLBM) located in Kansas City, MO. But, this is not your typical sports museum that Kendrick runs. This is a cathedral of sorts, showcasing and detailing the history of black players who made an impact both on and off the field. This is a museum that celebrates the rich history of the men and women who made an impact on the social advancement of our country. It is rather fitting that in 2020, a year of social unrest in the United States, the NLBM is celebrating its 100th anniversary. That’s why people around the world are tipping their caps to the Negro Leagues…
