Thanks to all of the readers who sent me well wishes after my final column on Yahoo!Finance, which appeared July 28. The piece was a tribute to my brother-in-law Bob, who was married to my sister for 38 years and died in late July at age 59 after a long battle with a brain tumor. A father of five, a coach, a generous volunteer and a man of faith, Bob had a unique talent for finding the good in everyone. I hope you’ll read the column.
On August 1, I joined AOL Daily Finance, part of The Huffington Post Media Group. I’m delighted to back in a newsroom in New York City with a terrifically smart group of reporters after working mainly from home for a number of years. I’m trading a weekly column, teaching a moral values class at Seton Hall University and book writing — I just finished my sixth — for full-time reporting, and couldn’t be happier.
I am covering retirement, consumer issues and, of course, money and happiness, across a range of media platforms. Journalism is shifting at lightning speed, and The HuffPost has assembled a forward-thinking team to test the limits of what is possible. I’m excited to join them.
I’ll still be doing interviews and TV appearances on personal finance topics (look for an upcoming piece in The Miami Herald and a Better TV appearance in late September).
Here are links to my recent stories. I’ll continue to post them here on a weekly basis, or please follow me on Twitter @MoneyHappiness. Stories will go up there daily. Please continue to send me your questions and thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org. As always, wishing you eudaimonia in abundance!
