11. Can We Still Be Friends? -

DIVORCE MAY BE BEST. After all, it was a shotgun wedding.

He grew up in an old neighborhood under the shade of old oaks – a big city boy with more ambition than brains, a dreamer always looking past the weeds in his own yard to greener grass. He was fun alright – into good times and great restaurants, live music and funky joints, nights that start with sunsets on the river and end at dawn next to somebody. He spent big, too big. Lived large, too large. And, truth be told, he could be a bit scary and more than a bit grabby.

12. Universal Appeal -

Paige Marcantel, a licensed clinical social worker, served as a grief counselor for Baptist Memorial Hospital for several years before becoming a stay-at-home mom two years ago.

79. Squelch Those Money Squabbles -

Ray’s Take Disagreements over money can literally tear families apart – it’s the No. 1 reason for divorce.

This easily leads to the other partner becoming financially oblivious and that imbalance can lead to problems.

Business owners who lose touch with reality usually end up going out of business. So let’s chat a bit about reality this week.

87. Going From Preaching To Prospecting? -

Two of the most successful sales professionals I have encountered had one thing in common – they were both ordained ministers before they pursued careers in professional sales.

In one case, the former pastor of a small country church generated millions in revenues, and millions in personal commissions, in a single year. Being a curious person, I asked the super-selling reverend to tell me about the secret to his success. I not only wanted to know how he did it, I wanted to know how he made it look so easy. He said, “Come on over to the house tonight, we’ll have supper and I’ll tell you all about it.” For those of you not from the Deep South, “supper” typically refers to the evening meal. A meal that is usually served well before the sun goes down and long before anyone should be eating an evening meal.

92. Prenups: Not Just for Rich -

Ray’s Take There are many reasons to have a prenuptial accord: Firstly, while people expect their marriages to last forever, more than one-third of first marriages fail, and that percentage rises with subsequent marriages; secondly, people are waiting longer to marry and enter their union with more assets; and thirdly, prenups can offer protection if one spouse secretly runs up massive debt.

96. Parham Focuses Practice On Estate Law Complexities -

97. Caywood Reflects On 50 Years in Law -

98. Public Notices Have Important Role -

When I first became publisher of The Daily News in Memphis, I’ll admit I knew very little about public notices.
