Are you planning your wedding and want to stick to your budget? Preparing the guest list can be the hardest part of the whole planning process, but there’s no cause for despair. It’s the single highest-impact wedding element to economize. Guest numbers are the largest individual component of the entire wedding price, because each guest increases the costs in the major expense areas — venue and catering.

How to plan a guest list which includes everyone who's important to you but which doesn't cause your wedding plans to go over the budget? Read this excerpt from Ethan Baron's book, Wedding Bliss on a Budget.

It can be the poor quality of food in a restaurant, the cold weather outside or the slow customer service in a store. Humans naturally complain about many things, rather than compliment. It is human nature to prefer to share the bad news over the good, and caregiving is no different.
There are numerous benefits to providing eldercare – many of these may never fully realized until after a person has passed away. What are they? Rick Lauber gives a few examples in his article on Seniors Lifestyle Magazine.

It can be an agonizing decision to make; however, it’s one that many of us have to ultimately face at some time in our lives. Placing your mother or father into long-term care often signals increased mental or physical deterioration – the senior’s previous home becomes unsafe and unsuitable for someone to remain living there.

What to consider when choosing a long-term care facility for your aging parent? Read the new post by Rick Lauber on Seniors Lifestyle Magazine.

There are different kinds of reading. Scanning the menu at a restaurant is reading. Skimming through a page of Google search result is reading. Glancing through a magazine while waiting for your turn with the dentist is reading. Devouring every word of a best-selling thriller is reading — even though you will not remember much beyond the barest outline of the plot two days after you finish the book. And "reading" is also the label given to the process in which we engage when we try to understand, learn, and retain complex material published in printed form. All of these activities are called reading, but they have very different purposes and results.

"The burgeoning world of social media is teaching the young that privacy is “so twentieth century” and neither important nor possible in the brave new age of Facebook. If, nonetheless, you remain attached to quaint and antique notions of privacy (...) this slim volume from Self-Counsel Press Your Right to Privacy is a must read."

Read the full review of Your Right to Privacy by Jim Bronskill and David McKie in The Vancouver Sun.

The American people got news yesterday that has a lot of the world reeling… and some of them more than that. We’ve had it from reliable sources that Canada's immigration website crashed hard on election night and, at the time of this writing, it was still not responding as sharply as it usually does.
While pulling up stakes and moving to Canada might be a new thought for some, we at Self-Counsel have been dealing with these issues for many years and, let’s face it, with all of the chatter and shouting happening right now, a calm professional voice might be just what the doctor ordered. And that’s really the place we always begin.
