I am an idea person. I am never at a shortage for thoughts on what should be done, what the world needs, and what new products will take the world by storm. On creativity profiles, I am known as an “idea generator.” That sounds like a good thing, but by itself it isn’t. The problem is that every idea I come up with sounds to me like the next big thing.

The standard deposit insurance amount is $250,000 per depositor, per insured bank, for each account ownership category. So this is a great thing for those of us keeping money in the bank. We know that no matter what happens to the bank, the FDIC guarantees we will still get our money.
