‘Little’ time pays big dividends

BBBS-ETN CEO learned program’s value very early

Still in his 20s and just entering the workforce in 2007, Brent Waugh volunteered to mentor a child named Eli through Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Tennessee. Even when Waugh left for Colorado three years later, he stayed in touch with his “Little,” taking his mentee out for burgers or a UT football game each time he visited Knoxville.

TENNESSEE TITANS

Titans seem to have Ravens’ number

But can they make it 3 in a row?

The Ringo Starr classic “It Don’t Come Easy” might be a fitting theme song to the Tennessee Titans’ 2020 season.

Building early lead crucial for first round win

Can the Titans make it three consecutive wins against the Ravens in less than a full year? The Ravens opened as a field goal favorite, but they also were favored in their last two losses to Tennessee.

BEHIND THE WHEEL

Need for speed: Chevrolet Corvette vs. Porsche 911

BUSINESS BOOK REVIEW

You might actually have more time than you think

One. That’s all you need. One more hour magically crammed into your day and you’d be set. No more moving today’s tasks over to stress you out tomorrow. And if there was an extra hour wedged into tomorrow, great, that’d help, too.

PERSONAL FINANCE

Start 2021 off strong with these money moves

After the train wreck that was 2020, you might well question whether it’s worth trying to plan anything. But knocking off a few financial tasks early in the year can better prepare you for whatever 2021 has in store.

CAREER CORNER

Reprioritize your goals for a better 2021

If last year taught us anything, it’s that things can change in an instant. Even small things we took for granted can become complex and unknown.

MILLENNIAL MONEY

How to nail a no-spend month

Holiday spending always gets the best of me. The gifts, the food, the Christmas tree and decorations – sandwiched between two monthly rent payments – siphon money from my bank account. Every year I feel the sticker shock, briefly tuck my tail between my legs, then carry on like it never happened.
