Is your idea in line with the trend? A fast idea is an idea that’s in line with the present and future trend. If you intend bringing an obsolete idea to the marketplace, think again because your idea may be dead on arrival.
A while back, I created a video all about negotiating your debt. Don’t be thrown off by how old it is or how I filmed it using a potato. The advice can still help you expertly negotiate with credit card companies.
Folks, don’t confuse simple with easy. The principle of ‘spend less than you earn’ is indeed simple. But, like many other things, it isn’t easy; our current media inundation with advertising which begs, cajoles, pleads, ridicules, and browbeats us to spend, spend, spend makes it especially difficult to exercise the self-discipline required to abide by the principle.
Citigroup was a financial toxic dump in the fall of 2008, and Bank of America wasn’t far behind. Under idealized “free market” capitalism, both banks would have gone under, entirely wiping out shareholders’ equity. Bondholders probably would have received pennies on the dollar for their loans. Too bad. To paraphrase the drunken baseball manager played by Tom Hanks in the movie A League of Their Own, there ‘s no crying in capitalism.
The U.S. Millionaire’s shuffle format introduced a new lifeline, “Jump the Question”, which was able to be used twice in a single game for seasons nine through twelve of the syndicated version. At any point prior to selecting a final answer, a contestant could use Jump the Question to skip the current question and move on to the next one, thus reducing the number of questions they had to correctly answer. However, if the contestant uses Jump the Question, they do not gain any money from the question they choose to skip (for example, a contestant with a bank of $68,100 may jump the $100,000 question, but will still have only $68,100 instead of the typical $100,000 when they face the $250,000 question). Unlike other lifelines throughout the show’s history, this lifeline cannot be used on the $1 million question, since it is the final question in the game. The introduction of Plus One reduced the number of Jump the Question lifelines available from two to one. On occasional specially designated weeks, starting with a Halloween-themed week that aired from 29 October to 2 November 2012, the shuffle format uses a special lifeline called “Crystal Ball”, which allows the contestant to see the money value of a round one question prior to giving an answer. Jump the Question was removed from the show at the end of the thirteenth syndicated season.
Start reaching out to Millionaire’s that you admire. Even in your local community. Most successful people are open to sharing their story and possibly being a mentor for you. If you don’t know anyone ask your friends. Ask around for a referral. Every time I ask one of my Millionaire friends they also have Millionaire friends. Just like I said before “Your Network is Your Networth”. If you want to fly with the Eagles, Don’t hang out with the Turkey’s. That is why it is not a coincidence that one Millionaire will also surround him or her self with many other successful people too.
Even if you aren’t fully invested in the stock market, almost every long-term financial plan approved by a financial advisor will have some degree of exposure to stocks. The stock market can be a scary thing when the U.S. economy experiences a cyclical decline. Historically, however, investors who have lost their nerve and sold during downturns have been punished in the long run. Many people panicked in 2008, when the S&P 500 lost roughly half its value during the financial crisis. Today, less than a decade later, the S&P 500 is now more than 76 percent higher than its 2007 peak.
