Reach out, don't be afraid. I've had that same feeling before: You want to open the feeder lines of communication but you don't know exactly what to say; let me help you. Share an idea with me, shoot me a suggestion, tell me never to wear socks with sandals, or just tell me how improve; I welcome it all.

Break the routine looks to advise and guide city dwellers and suburbanites alike to think smart by different about their time and money. My goal is to provide financial wellness education, spare-time management techniques and suggestions for fun and fulfilling free time around the city I love. Through these shared articles, influences, and improved life techniques I hope you create your own plan and act on them immediately. I'm here to help and inspire you. 



Sometimes I'll write about work, other times I'll write about you. Trust that I won't ever write about my time spent on the couch (reserved only for football Sundays).

Winter Hiatus

Eric Roseman

This is a blatant confession of winter laziness. I thought I was stronger than teen highs and negative wind chills but I was wrong. I'm the naive guy who thinks he can brave the cold by throwing on the exact layers as he would on a crisp fall day and says, "I can handle the cold for my three walk block to the subway right?"
