Dr. Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work.  Her area of study is vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame.  How would you like to major in that?!

She has presented two TED talks on these subjects and you’ll find the videos on her site. She is funny, warm and honest and well worth spending some time with. I haven’t read her latest book but it’s high on my list.  If you get to it before I do I’d love to hear what you think.

This blog is written by Californian Dave Bernard.   I haven’t spent a long time on his site but I do like his emphasis on planning for retirement that goes beyond financial matters.
