Qauntitative Easing Why It Is Really Bad, And Using Videos Right

Here is a great video on Quantitative Easing. This is what had so many countries truly ticked off and upset with the the President and the Fed during his most recent whirl wind trip around the World.

It also is a GREAT example of how to use a simple video to explain a complex subject. The quesiton is, how can you use a video like this to explain what you are doing?

Apple, Gold, Silver, Oil,The Falling Dollar, And How To Profit From Them

appleI used to have a blog that discussed investments. I took the site down about 18 months ago because I had too many things going on, but I want to bring the four things that I was very high on investment wise at the time.

Gold, Silver, Oil, and Apple Computers

Let’s us start with Apple. I was talking to people about purchasing Apple Call options in the 100’s a couple of years out and predicting that you would make over 50%. Well, how about making 800%+?

The same with Gold, Silver, and Oil. The same things that were driving them then, are driving all of them now, except things are in high gear.

Anyone that is an adult and says that deficit spending and the Feds printing money that has no backing as fast as they can is a good thing is an idiot period.

That is why Gold has reached new highs on a daily basis and the same with Silver, and why Apple has been on a tear from the $90s up nearly $290. Continue reading Apple, Gold, Silver, Oil,The Falling Dollar, And How To Profit From Them

Entrepreneurial Leverage – The X Factor That Allows The Individual To Beat Big Companies Every Time

Entrepreneurial Leverage – The X Factor That Allows The Individual To Beat Big Companies Every Time

tartaglia_lever

Here is how and why the man or woman in their Garage, Basement, or Bedroom that is hoping to start a business and beat the big companies out there that have hundreds of employees and millions of dollars at their disposal can do it.

I have written about this before over the years but I think that I have honed it down so that everyone with two neurons firing (that could be me on a good day) can understand it. Here is the secret to how you as an Entrepreneur can beat the big guys.

First I want to layout some ground work that I have done before but, I want to put this all inside one nut shell.

The thing that we have to start off with is Moore’s Law which is Gordon Moore of Hewlett Packard fame that says basically this….

The capability and speed of computer chips will double every 18 months and the price will be cut in half.

This has remained true since 1965 if you can believe it or not. Continue reading Entrepreneurial Leverage – The X Factor That Allows The Individual To Beat Big Companies Every Time

At Last, How To Profit In This Economy Using Virtual Assistants Or VA’s

Virtual Assistants Allow You To Survive And Thrive

WomanMouse OK, let’s face it. In spite of everything the talking heads in DC say, they are not helping small to medium sized businesses at all. The largest spending bill in the History of the World has been a big flop.  Not that this is surprising to anyone that knows anything about History or Economics, but Oh well.  They have taken the Economy that was in the Ditch as they are found of saying and driven it Thelma and Louise style off the Cliff.

Point in fact, the more they say they are helping, the more we find out they are putting small and medium sized businesses in the cross hairs for shot to the head and extinction.  Perhaps never before in the history of the US do you have a more clueless bunch of Politicians when it comes to the Economy.

Although, I may take have to take that back as their is a growing consensus that they know exactly what they are doing and they are doing it on purpose and there is a stack of evidence pointing toward that view.  This is simply because that no one in their right mind would believe that you can spend and tax your way to prosperity.  So, therefore it is being done on purpose for control, socialism, and the redistribution of wealth.

We contend that for a nation to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.
Winston Churchill

They tried this progressive stupidity when Churchill was around and it did not work back then, nor will it work now.  I think anyone with more than two brain cells realizes the spending on stupid things has to stop.

With that being said, if you want to stay in business, take care of your family and existing employees, or flat out just survive, you need to cut costs, increase efficiency, or better yet, figure out how to do both as fast as you can.  If you don’t, you won’t stick around for very long. And not to rain on the parade, but the biggest tax increase in history is coming in January and they specifically said they will not give small businesses a break.  Read about the tax hikes here.

The world knows this and has proven it today by pushing gold to the highest price in history. They voted with their money and there is no truer or less corrupt ballot than that.

So, how can you survive what is going on?

Virtual Assistants Or VA’s To The Rescue

One of the ways to do that is to use Virtual Assistants.  Why? Because hands down, the usually cost less than 25% to 80% than hiring an employee.  And with all of the new

Start Your Business NOW! Here is why you should not wait until next year.

Start Your Business Now – Here Is Why

If you have ever thought about starting your own business or taking it up a notch or three now is the time.

image I have covered this in several previous posts, but I think it is really worth repeating based on what is happening right now.

You may have heard the Administration is going to ride herd on the largest overall tax increase in the history of the country, but you may have not seen the numbers in black and white. Here they are.

  • The 10% bracket will increase to 15%.
  • The 25% bracket will increase to 28%.
  • The 28% bracket will increase to 31%.
  • The 33% bracket will increase to 36%.
  • The 35% bracket will increase to 39.6%.

What this means is this.

  • The 10% bracket will increase to 15%… a tax burden hike of 50%.
  • The 25% bracket will increase to 28%… a tax burden hike of 12%.
  • The 28% bracket will increase to 31%… a tax burden hike of 10.7%.
  • The 33% bracket will increase to 36%… a tax burden hike of 9.1%.
  • The 35% bracket will increase to 39.6%… a tax burden hike of 13.1%.

Capital Gains Taxes are due to go up by 50%.  This is going to hurt all business investment and help kill any new job creation and drive manufacturing overseas even more.

Apple And The iPhone And Piling On – A Trend Of The Times?

Bashing Success And Apologizing For Exceptionalism

You must have heard by now that Apple has a few issues with the iPhone unless you were living in a cave.  Well, by all accounts if you get your news from the LameStream media, you would think that every iPhone is terrible and that the Government should step in to help the poor hapless consumer.

Well, guess what.   I know of at least four people that have the new phone and try as they might, they can’t reproduce the issue.  And they have asked friends who have it and no joy on being able to create the issues with the phone going out when you touch a certain part of it.

What does this mean? Well, I think it is a commentary on the predatory nature of media towards tearing anyone down that is successful or for the gall of being Exceptional and that bad news sells.  I like to call them soul suckers … LOL .  They want to portray anyone that is successful as bad, be it an individual or a business and especially businesses.
