I was wondering what techniques everyone is using to build wealth. What books are you all reading? Courses? Mentors?

credit unions [May. 18th, 2005|01:24 pm]

Hi, all!

I keep hearing all kinds of fantastic things about credit unions -- great interest rates on savings accounts and loans, etc. Do or have any of you belong to a credit union? What is/was your experience? How did you find your union? How can I find one? What should I watch out for?

Thank you so much in advance!

What are you biggest gripes about the current economic state of our country? What do you think, if anything can be done to fix it?

Where U At? [Apr. 24th, 2005|09:15 pm]

Just for my own personal edification, could everyone list where they are from and how much gas is there?

I was in Macon,Ga over the weekend and according to the news they have the cheapest gas in the state. I paid $2.06 for 89 octane. Now this was with my Kroger plus card, so without, it would have been $2.09.
But in Atlanta, where I live, 89 is about $2.14.

None the less, it cost me 29.00 to fill up my little as PT Crusier today, and I remeber back in '02 when I could fill that thing up for $12. So since we're not having an energy crisis, WTF gives?

Greetings Everyone [Apr. 13th, 2005|02:56 pm]

I hope everyone accepts my sincere apologies for letting this great community lapse. However, I am recommittimg myself to making it active,and I encourage all of you to post you questions, thoughts and concerns.

To get the ball rolling again, I have two very important questions:

#1 Does anyone out there tithe regularly? If you do why? Tax breaks? Because God says so? And if you don't tithe, why? Not giving your money to the preacher man? If God wanted it he would take it?

And #2 Has everyone done their taxes? Does anyone have questions about taxes and tax benefits? Does anyone not file taxes? (Tsk, tsk!)

Again, I apologize, and I hope we can get it crackin in here again!!!!

Agree with yourself that it is okay to earn what you would truly like to earn—and accept the fact that you deserve to earn it.

Agree with your self that money—or the benefits it can create—is good, worthwhile, and a natural result of your efforts.

Agree with your self that you are willing to work for what you get. There is almost never any long-term financial reward without long-term commitment and hard work.

Agree with your self that you are willing to manage the money you earn once you have it.

I was reading somewhere that alot of people don't contribute enough to their 401k plan. I was wondering if anyone knew if there were some kind of standard. I know that my company will match up to 3% of your income. So that's how much I was going to contribute. But I was worried if that may be under investing or what.
