Three Strategies Ultra-Successful
- Do business in a new way: A very small minority of
entrepreneurs in a typical community are bartering, which puts
you in the rare company of those doing business in a new way.
- Buy low: Every time you barter you are effectively "buying
low," because you're doing so at your barter cost. Accountants
refer to this as buying at a variable cost, the amount derived
by subtracting the fixed cost of doing business.
(Because barter business is incremental extra business, fixed
costs are not a part of that additional business. In other
words, if you never bartered those fixed costs would still have
to be handled.)
- Thrive on deals: Doing profitable barter deals is
exhilarating. All prosperous mega-traders know, and relish, the
incredible feeling when a successful deal has been concluded.
That's what drives us and is most exciting about trading.

America's Weak & Sluggish Economy
A sluggish economic recovery sees some pundits suggesting the
problem revolves around the notion that the richest Americans and
companies don't have enough money to invest or that "regulations" or
"uncertainty" is discouraging investment.
No. According to
recent data, the problem is that the primary customers in this
economy, average American households, are losing ground fast. When a
company’s customers are suffering, the company will suffer —
no matter how much cash it has available to invest.
consumers spend most of their money in at home. And that money
becomes revenue for U.S. companies. So when the average consumer's
spending is weak, the whole economy is weak. Which is exactly the
situation we’re in now.
A new study by Sentier Research
provides the evidence. In the year 2000, after adjusting for
inflation, the median household in the U.S. earned about $55,000 per
year. Now, twelve years later, the median has fallen to $51,000.
The two age-groups that have been hit the worst during this
period are households led by those in the 55-64 age group and those
in the 25-34 age group. The incomes of the near-retirees have fallen
by nearly 10% in just the past three years. Thus, the bottom-line is
that the economic recovery is weak and sluggish because consumers
are losing their spending power.

Don't Be Part Of The 70% ...
Protect Your Family With A Will
Still putting off making that will? You're not alone. About 70%
of people in the United States — men and women, young and old,
rich and poor — die without a will and testament.
Don't be one of those people. The repercussions of not preparing a
will can be huge, as your estate will pass under the laws of
intestacy of the state in which you reside at the time of your
Translation: The state will make a will for
you, regardless of what your intentions were. The laws of intestacy
are different in every state. However, some generalizations do
apply. And one of them relates to a common but critical
Many people are under the impression that if
they are married and die without a will, their spouse will inherit
everything. WRONG. In fact, the estate of an individual who is
married at the time of death must be shared between the surviving
spouse and the children.
Typically, the surviving spouse
winds up with no more than a third to a half of the estate. If the
individual is married but has no children, the surviving spouse may
have to share the estate with the parents of the deceased.
The greatest advantage of having a will is simply that you can
dictate not only who the heirs of your estate will be, but also what
each will specifically inherit.
Provision can be made for friends and charities. Children can be
treated equally or unequally, depending upon their needs or your
desires. Thus nothing need be left to chance, as is the case when
you die without a will.
