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.

Coming soon, Camellia Street Village

Right now, it is little more than a small sales trailer right off of Hwy 144 east of I-95. However, Tidewater Real Estate, LLC plans to turn it into the commercial condominium development, Camellia Street Village. Those plans are very close to becoming reality.

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.

Buy local and you’ll love it

I know you can't tell it by the weather, but it is almost Christmas. Parades, a chili cook off and sales have announced it. That last one is my favorite. I absolutely love a great sale. Sales at Christmas time are the best because there is so much shopping to do.

Her goal is to keep you up to date

My family is made of local people. My husband and I both grew up around here. When we left for my naval transfer, it didn't take long before we were ready to come back. Bryan County was growing before we left. It was booming when we got back. We are in awe of our community on a regular basis. We have lunches at the local restaurants - some are home grown, others are franchises. We drive five minutes for groceries, medical care, picture framing, designer shoes, formal gowns, spa treatments, hair dressers, and physical fitness. The drive to Savannah happens ...
