Why, you might ask, take advice from Mariel Hemingway and her partner Bobby Williams about how to live? It's true that they've lived a lot - singly or as a couple facing mental health problems and suicides of loved ones, exploring all sorts of physical adventures, marriage and divorce, parenthood, Hollywood celebrity, the run of diet and wellness pursuits.

In an effort to help its low-wage employees manage to stay afloat financially, the golden arches teamed up with Visa to produce an online brochure to guide workers through the process of paying their bills and even saving money while living on a cheap-food paycheck.

Dear Karen: You recently advised hiring professionals to build websites, but are there cheaper alternatives for start-ups? Answer: On a tight budget, try to barter services with a Web design firm. Or hire a freelancer to design the site and take that template to a developer, said Erin Presseau of SilverTech, a digital marketing agency in New Hampshire. "Although the company may charge a nominal fee for graphic production work, they won't pad the estimate for the initial design," she said.
