Television...

I may be resolved to completely ban television from my life. I am always surprised by what they believe is a successful series these days. I am tired of the young tv shows with little to offer the world and super exhausted by the reality shows that exemplify the worst of American values. Quality television is an aging dinosaur and is about to become extinct. I am seriously thinking of putting the new 32" tele into the closet as a mirror!

Taking Care of Business...

Finances, Finances...who said "all my wealth is in my closet?" I am trying to become a better steward of my finances. I have started to really concentrate on my own well being (basically, I have got to start saving like the world is ending tomorrow) and become thrifty. I admire my mother whom has always stated get your retirement set so you will not have to work till you are close to the grave...lol. No laughing matter we are all going to have to work at least till we are 65 or older...NOOOOO! Unless you start today! I follow the financial guru Mellody Hobson and she is so real with building wealth and doing it slow and steady check her site at www.arielinvestments.com Taking care of business is my priority this year and years to come....

The Art of Negotiating

Ok, I am not good at this AT ALL! However, The Persian is quite good at it... I will have to start to take lessons. One lesson is to ask and that is hard but like the old saying goes "a closed mouth does not get fed." Don't be afraid to say you found it somewhere for cheaper because that is almost always the case but they don't know that for sure. Walk away if you can wait till the price decreases. And believe me I am still learning from the master and more tips to come.

Hello Social Media

Oh my! My very first post. What shall the mood of my post be? I know how happy I am to start another social media page. I am burnt out on FB, Twitter and the others maybe this will peak my interest. Just a small note more to come when, I get more familiar with the site.
