Local pros perfect the talk

While serving in the Navy, I had the opportunity of completing a tour as an Electronics Instructor. Although mastery of the subject matter was critical, the hardest part was effectively communicating the ideas to new sailors. Most students did not have a technical background and many were fresh out of high school. In order to hone my verbal communication skills, I joined a local Toastmasters club.

Protect yourself from identity theft

Identity theft is big business. In fact, each year, billions of dollars - that's billions, with a "b" - is lost to identity theft, according to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

Conference center conversation

There has been a great deal of rumblings lately about the conference center planned for J.F. Gregory Park. I didn't know a lot about it since I have never been to a city council meeting and I don't spend a lot of time reviewing SPLOST (Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax) allocation. Both are things I need to rectify.

Exposing business to consumers

While driving down Daniel Siding last week, I came across a young man in the ditch. He was not alone - his car was with him. As I drove by, I noticed that he was just standing there. I expected to see him on a cell phone calling for help. What if he didn't have a phone? The road leading to Waterford Landing is not the most traveled road in town during the week in the middle of the day. So, I stopped. Sure enough - no phone. I offered my phone so that he could rally reinforcements. Someone was on ...

Questions to ask yourself as you near retirement

Whenever you see people enjoying a comfortable retirement - traveling, volunteering, pursuing hobbies, taking up a new career - you can be pretty sure it all didn't happen by accident. In fact, success at retirement is similar to success in just about any endeavor - you have to plan for it.

Will presidential election year affect investors?

As you are no doubt aware, 2008 is a presidential election year. As a citizen, you may well have a great deal of interest in the election. But how about as an investor? How does an election year affect the investment climate? And - again from the perspective of an investor - does it matter who wins?

Help available for small businesses in Bryan County

Say what you want, but you would have a hard time convincing me that Bryan County is not built on small business owners. They are the backbone of this community's economy. These are people we know, live next door to, participate in civic actives with and hopefully support when our needs match with their products and services.

Take advantage of financial education

In the old days, if you worked for a company, your retirement income would likely have been in the form of a pension, with the amount based on your income level and years of service. Apart from those factors, you had little control over the size of your pension benefits. That pension model is still around, but it's not as prevalent as it once was.

Set reasonable financial goals

If you make a New Year's resolution, and you don't follow through on it, what are the consequences? It all depends. If you vow to learn French, but you never get past "Oui, mademoiselle," your life will probably go on pretty much as before (unless, of course, you're now living in France). But if you make some financial resolutions, and you abandon them, you could fall short of your long-term goals - such as a comfortable retirement.

All real estate is local

If you believe everything you hear, every homeowner is facing foreclosure, sellers have to give their houses away and buyers can't find a mortgage company that isn't too scared to underwrite a new loan. If you listen to some tell it, all of our houses are worth about 10 bucks. If buyers wait a little longer and look a little harder, they can probably find one just like it for about five.
