Follow a withdrawal strategy

When you're working, you probably focus on how much you're putting in to your investment portfolio. But when you retire, how much you take out will be a matter of considerable interest. And that's why you have to prepare the proper withdrawal strategies.

The business of community

We spend a lot of time watching businesses come into the community. We watched with great anticipation while Publix was built. There are more banks, gyms and retail outlets going up. We have three McDonald's locations around town. Rotary was packed to hear Paul Fletcher talk about Water Ways Township (formerly Genesis Point). The grand opening of Kroger was nothing short of spectacular. We are waiting with great anticipation to find out what business will occupy the old Kroger spot. Quite honestly, I am ready to start making up rumors about that one.

Keep your business in the family

If you own a small business, you've got a lot to think about: attracting customers, holding down expenses, keeping up with trends and competitors - the list goes on and on.

What investors can learn from gardeners

Spring is here. If you're a gardener, you know it will soon be time for you to put in your flowers or vegetables.

On Sunday liquor sales

Our city became all abuzz last week when word got out that a letter had been sent to the city requesting a referendum to allow Sunday alcohol sales in restaurants. But, we are not alone. There are discussions going on about this very topic in our state legislation now. In fact, Senate Bills 137 and 138 would apply to retail stores as well as restaurants. It would not make the sale on Sundays legal. What it would do is allow individual communities to introduce referendums for a vote. I like to vote.

Be wary of the words you use when advertising your home

"Two-bedroom, two-bath ranch in quiet, integrated neighborhood. Perfect for empty nesters wanting to scale down a bit. Brick exterior, hardwood floors, new carpet. City park within walking distance and several churches nearby."

Franchising the Hill

First, let me go on record as saying, I could be wrong. But, I have looked through business license lists, went through a mental list and have talked to everybody I can think of that would know. After doing all that, I think I can announce the first franchise to be born in Richmond Hill.

Smart portfolio moves for your retirement years

For most of your working years, your investment strategies, by and large, will probably revolve around achieving sufficient growth to help you meet your long-term goals, such as college for your kids and a comfortable retirement. But once you are retired, you can't just sit back and put your investment portfolio on "autopilot."

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.
