How have you been? The following is the 1st challange that went out (it was to a young Austrailian named Nick) but it's the same challange to you:     Nick, You wanted to know about how to get you finances up and your finacial house in order...well there's a series of things that need to happen. You need to get credit worthy; you need to actually create some passive residual income; and you must figure some good way to give back (without selfish or politically motivated hidden agendas or intentions)...remember, you reap what you sow ...   So, with that in mind----I challange you!   I challenge you to take the 777 Challenge...I know Australians don't have 'credit scores' as such so you'll just have to figure the 2nd step is to get your self up the equivalent of 700 (US credit score)....R...

You always hear the usual stories of pennies on the sidewalk being good luck, gifts from angels, etc ...  This is the first time I've ever heard this twist on the story. Gives you something to think about. Several years ago, a friend of mine and her husband were invited to spend the weekend at the husband's employer's home. My friend, Arlene, was nervous about the weekend.The boss was very wealthy, with a fine home on the waterway, and cars costing more than her house. The first day and evening went well, and Arlene was delighted to have this rare glimpse into how the very wealthy live.The husband's employer was quite generous as a host, and took them to the finest restaurants. Arlene knew she would never have the opportunity to indulge in this kind of extravagance again, so she was enj...

This was written by a Metro Denver Hospice Physician: I was driving home from a meeting this evening about 5, stuck in traffic on Colorado Blvd., and the car started to choke and splutter and die - I barely managed to coast, cursing, into a gas station, glad only that I would not be blocking traffic and would have a somewhat warm spot to wait for the tow truck. It wouldn't even turn over. Before I could make the call, I saw a woman walking out of the "quickie mart " building, and it looked like she slipped on s ome ice and fell into a Gas pump, so I got out to see if she was okay When I got there, it looked more like she had been overcome by sobs than that she had fallen; she was a young woman who looked really haggard with dark circles under her eyes. She dropped something as I helped ...

Thriving on changeYour greatest risk isn't that you'll make mistakes that will cost you. Your greatest risk is that you'll miss opportunities. You need an entrepreneurial mindset, not an employee mindset. Don't be too concerned with the risk of loss - be more concerned with the risk of missed gains. It's what you don't know and what you don't do that will hurt you the worst. Blogging is cheap. Your expenses and financial risk should be minimal. Your real concern should be missing opportunities that would have made you money very easily. You need to develop antennae that can listen out for new opportunities.The blogosphere changes rapidly, and change creates opportunity. It takes some brains to decipher these opportunities and to take advantage of them before they disappear. If you hesit...

Do you actually want to monetize your blog?Some people have strong personal feelings with respect to making money from their blogs. If you think commercializing your blog is evil, immoral, unethical, uncool, lame, greedy, obnoxious, or anything along those lines, then don't commercialize it.If you have mixed feelings about monetizing your blog, then sort out those feelings first. If you think monetizing your site is wonderful, fine. If you think it's evil, fine. But make up your mind before you seriously consider starting down this path. If you want to succeed, you must be congruent. Generating income from your blog is challenging enough - you don't want to be dealing with self-sabotage at the same time. It should feel genuinely good to earn income from your blog - you should be driven ...

Our local paper published an article that almost was positive. The article was giving the previous months new home sales vs. new home starts and the numbers showed that the inventory had gone down, only slightly but down. The article than went on to tell how foreclosures where going to flood our market. The following is my response, let's see if they print it.  Dear News Press Real Estate Desk,I'm writing this in response to your updated Real estate section.I'm glad to see that you are looking for the good in our market, there is a LOT. I read with interest your article on new construction sales, it started off very positive. Unfortunately you managed to put a negative twist on the story when you stated that in the near future our market is going to be flooded with foreclosures. While t...

Thinking about a Short Sale? "Short Sale" seems to be the talk of the town these days. With many homeowners in unfortunate situations at the present time they are searching for alternative ways out. Some may have read about a short sale online or in the newspaper. But most homeowners don't have all of the information about a short sale to make an informed decision. Below I will address the top concerns & questions I'm hearing from homeowners & my advice to them. Do I qualify for a Short Sale? To answer this take a look at your financials. Are you unable to continue on your current path? Are you paying more out each month than you are bringing in? Have you borrowed money from credit cards, family, other property, etc to continue to pay your mortgage? If you have & do not have the means t...

Florida Property Tax Reform There is good news out of Tallahassee Florida this morning.  The House and Senate have been able to devise a plan to send to the voters on January 29th, 2008. While the plan has many pros and cons there are provisions to provide property tax relief to not only primary residences, but also second home owners and business owners.  This is something that our seasonal and vacation population has been needing for many years. The new plan has the following provisions: • Portability of SOH Exemption Dollars: Homesteaders could take up to $500,000 of Save Our Homes protections to a new home purchase. Those who downsize would take a pro-rated portion of their tax protections.  This applies to all property taxes.  This will allow people who live in Homesteaded properti...
