How to Handle Tax Day Stress

John L. Pantera Apr 12, 2017 Life

It’s often said that Tax Day is, for many, our least-favorite day of the year.  If finances and employment are stressful for you on a regular basis, then it makes sense that you’re not a fan of the one day in the year that shines a big, unforgiving spotlight on those very issues.  In fact, 69% of us blame our stress on financial issues, and 65% of us blame...

Are You Being Kind to Yourself?

John L. Pantera Nov 15, 2016 Life

“Be kind whenever possible.  It is always possible.”  When you read this quote by the Dalai Lama, what comes to mind?  Coming to the aid of a neighbor down on her luck?  Showing patience to the coworker who regularly tromps on your nerves?  Volunteering at the local homeless shelter?  We’re guessing that, to you, “being kind”...

Cozy sweaters, fragrant pots of soup simmering in the slow-cooker, thick socks, many cups of hot chocolate or steaming tea – this season has us taking up all the cold-weather habits and supplies we tossed aside during the summer months.  Some fight this arrival of chilly weather as they would a home intruder – “how dare you?  Get out of here! ...

John L. Pantera Apr 13, 2016 Life

Ready or not, here it is. Tax Day is upon us – the giant alarm clock that is annually wound and set for the entire nation is poised to go off; its striking terror in those who have yet to visit their tax preparer, or boot up the online tax preparation du jour. Whether you’re the giant-trash-bag-full-of-receipts kind of filer, or the labeled-files-for-everything variety,...

It's a Mad, Mad March

John L. Pantera Mar 23, 2016 Life

It’s almost spring, and with it comes a beautiful soundtrack of a few more birds in the trees, kids playing in sunny yards and neighborhood sounds of mowers and rakes. And, if you’ve got basketball fans in your house, add to that spring soundtrack hours of TV announcers discussing brackets, fans cheering in packed basketball arenas, and the squeak of players’...

John L. Pantera Mar 9, 2016 Life

We don’t know about you, but the fact that it’s almost officially springtime makes us want to jump up and down with happiness.

As the September calendar inches closer to the first day of fall, we can’t help but feel the change in the air.
