All The Ways Laziness Is Costing You Money

I started getting frustrated yesterday with the television in my  bedroom.  So, I went to Best Buy…thinking I needed another television.  Then, it struck me.  Hmmm…I bet all I need is a new cable.

So, I bought a new cable cord…$9.00.  I went home, reconnected all, and voila!  Television and cable are now beauuuutiful.

I actually started thinking “Oh what the heck…I’ll just get a new television rather than trying to figure out what’s wrong with the thing!”

Then, today, across my reader came this article from Forbes.

All The Ways Laziness Is Costing You Money

Great read for everyone!  And, I feel accomplished fixing my television.  Now…can someone send me ideas on Vonage?  We are almost there but still not great!.

Gen Y Is Going To Need Financial Guidance More Than Most

There is a great article on Marketing Daily today about Gen Y and their future needs for financial advice.

I am most concerned about our rising tuition costs and the amount of student debt college kids are accumulating. They enter adulthood with 25,000 on up to $200,000.00 in student debt, and they struggle for years just to make ends meet. Then, to add to this, many are not receiving the financial support and counseling they need at a time when it is so critical. Parents and educators can help by teaching their children about saving and investing, which you can do by learning about Online Investments so you can make profit in a short time. As I always say “Save and invest early and often.” If you invest $50.00 per month for your child for 18 years, this can add up to a healthy savings for college. This $50.00 is about 12 trips to Starbucks each month.

For the Gen Y’s who need advice, I highly recommend David Bach’s work. It is spot on!

Turning generation Y into generation $

 “Before you go calling the new group of youngsters following in the footsteps of generation X generation “why”, you might want to take a look at their spending habits. There could be some good investment opportunities in a number of listed companies that are starting to take notice of these trendsetters”.

Great article on Generation Y and spending.

The Big Issues for Young Voters by Anya Kamenetz

Anya Kamenetz has a great post today on Yahoo Finance about the issues facing young voters. A big concern? The economy.

Several more senior leaders have been telling me that Gen Y does not seem concerned about the economy, but this is not what I am hearing, and Kamenetz’s opinion is more in line with what I am hearing..
