Holly Johnson's family uses a zero-sum budget to manage their spending while they put everything on credit cards to take advantage of points and rewards.

For some, Amazon’s decision will represent a political failure, in which officials and local labor leaders blew a once-in-a-decade chance to bring thousands of high-paying jobs to New York.

I don't believe in right or wrong. I believe in experiences. I believe there's no right path in life, there are just different experiences. The fork in the road metaphor that we were taught in school at a young age is just too extreme and not the reality we live today. Do you remember the picture? The left path takes you into this darkness and what seems to be a horrifying jungle where pain and horror await and the right one takes you to this beautiful land where all your dreams come true. But to tell you the truth, between these two paths, if I had to pick, the left one has always been more appealing to me than the right one. Why? I think it's because I just don't believe there are any shortcuts to your dreams in life. In fact, whenever I've been shown or offered a shortcut, I've always turned around and run the other way.
