January 15th, 2014 Posted in Business, Finance Tips

imagesDo you know how many financial institutions you do business with? It might be more then you realize.

Be realistic..

October 23rd, 2013 Posted in Business, Finance Tips

Be realistic in your goals and investing. Beware of following the herd, trading excessively, or becoming paralyzed. If you have set a % for a profit stick with your plan don’t try to second guess what the market might do tomorrow.
