Hawaii, through a very local lens

Pal Fay has a pal Jalna who is a photographer of everything.  When I just want to enjoy something for the sheer pleasure of enjoying and taking a break, I take a look at Jalna.blogspot.com and it transports me to the true localness of Hawaii, beautifully. Her photographs are so well done, they are delicious and habit forming.  They are also bad for my compulsive collection behavior, as Jalna and her sisters ...

Gurus of Wealth

The best way to get wealthy is slow and steady, not fast and risky.   "But I don't have any money" is the most common cry and stops most people in their tracks.  Successful people will find a way so they do have money to invest. The following are a summary of programs/authors/subscriptions/methods that I have tried and my recommendations based on personal experience that are specific to wealth building: Mic ...

Business Credit

I am learning about obtaining business credit.  This is important to me because currently our action plan to keep buying properties has hit a small road block. The original plan was to purchase a Vegas property in cash (cash is king), cash out refinance the property to get the cash back out, and buy another property.  This was to be repeated as many times as possible until the cash supply dries up. The prob ...

Hey Joe and Aunty!

Aunty first met Joe Taxpayer years ago while google searching about United First Financial's Money Merge Program.  Aunty had plopped down $3,500 for this fantastic sounding program that calculated that it would take 8 years 11 months to pay down our mortgage debts using sophisticated algorithms, money back guaranteed!  (PS don't tell Uncle that I bought this.) After about 3 months of struggling with their s ...

Le Flowers on 2567 King Street between Kuni Island Fabrics and Siam Imports has inexpensive leis such as the braided flat ginger le ...

Is Ordinary Good Enough for You?

Wayne Dyer did a presentation for Public Television on the basis of his book, "Wishes Fulfilled, Mastering the Art of Manifestation." Truth to tell, I never knew who Wayne Dyer was before this, but it blew Aunty away.  Hope it does the same for you: ...

5 Star Rating and good Karma (credit)

Aunty was in a major pickle.  Major.  I didn't even want to tell Uncle about it because he might get mad and make me cut up all my credit cards. See, pal Cookie called to let me know about Wells Fargo's stream line loans that refinance at today's lower interest rates with zero points and $650 closing costs (that's a great deal).  Aunty was in the beginning phase of talking to Kim, one of their loan officers ...

Beginning “The Pledge”

Aunty recently joined the Wealth Builders Club (will give more details in a future post) and one of the bonuses of that program is getting Michael Masterson's new book "The Pledge" in the mail.  I like getting a "real" book, especially if they are hardcover.  Somehow having pages to turn and paper to smell makes it of more value to me than an e-book. I posted about Michael Masterson before - as the man with ...
