If You Made $82,000 Last Year, You Made More Than Jeff Bezos

Are you feeling successful? Well, there's a bit more to it than that. For the last two decades, Amazon CEO and billionaire Jeff Bezos has been paid the same salary by Amazon: $81,840. And, as the richest person in the world, Jeff Bezos is living proof that the salary doesn't make the man. His ownership in Amazon stock is what drives his net worth, but he also hasn't taken stock-based compensation. His fortune rides upon the success of the business itself — a major hallmark of many successful entrepreneurs. Just a note to Bezos' net worth: after a recent and ...Continue reading

Is Planet Fitness Making Investors Any Money?

When Planet Fitness (PLNT) is mentioned, most people think of the chain's controversial free pizza day and bottom-barrel pricing. It costs a mere $10 a month to use one of the company's 1,742 locations.

Stop us if you've heard this one before: College is expensive. But perhaps the only thing scarier than the cost of college now is what the cost of college will be 5, 10, 15 or even 20 years from now. Currently, it's estimated that about 44 million students account for more than $1.5 trillion in student loan debt. What's more, CNBC estimates that the average student has more than $37,000 in student loans — an increase from the $20,000 average debt amount 13 years ago. Don't panic just yet, there is hope.

FSA vs. HSA: What’s the Better Option?

Death, taxes and...and rising health care costs? Yes, those three things may be the only certainties we have in life right now, and the latter one is something that's increasing at a far more rapid pace than the average person's annual income. What's the reason for rising healthcare costs? It's a combination of multiple factors: One, there's the mix of private insurers and government-sponsored programs that must stay competitive.
