I’ve raised money for this machine twice, once back in about 1974 and then again over the last four years or so. Let’s begin back in the early 70s, when I first started the project. I was in my early 20’s and bored one day, and I asked my father if he could think of something that needed inventing. He told me “invent an asparagus harvester”. He was a farmer and an asparagus grower.
Fear Not! Fear hampers your financial success, slows you down and keeps you from what is possible. When you let fear get the best of you, it pushes you back to your comfort zone and to an unhappy financial life. Decide to jump in and get your finances in order and under control. You might feel way out of your comfort zone at first, so begin by taking small steps. This will help lessen the fear, and you’ll begin to notice how taking action leads you to feeling more in control of your money.
Very quickly. The only issue is what type of account to use. Since the IRA is self-directed (the owner decides how to invest it), the money can be put into a savings account designated for IRA purposes or high-risk stocks. You take responsibility for your money. Assuming your favorite bank isn’t overloaded with last minute applicants for deductible IRAs in a recession year (I think the odds are low that they will be), you can go to a bank or mutual fund company and simply open an account on the spot. It is a fairly simple process- fill out the application and open the account.
It was in 2003 I think, when I was talking to an asparagus grower, and he told me he would give his right arm for a selective asparagus harvester. That got me to thinking, and I drove into town and peeked through the gate at Geiger Manufacturing. It was a Saturday and the shop was closed, but I could see through the gate that the harvester was still in the shed where we parked it almost 20 years before.
Lakisha Jones is due to have an album release in February of 2009. What else can I say about her? I could say a lot but I’m not going to. I have heard a lot of rumors about the marriage between Jones and Davis such as him only being after her money but I am not one to criticize or think anything bad about financial tax marrying newly sort of famous people. I usually just sit back and watch the show.
For example, a couple who has no children, no mortgage and little to no home equity loans might decide to take out a home equity loan for the money if they can quickly pay it back and minimize interest payments. Or they might borrow from family members, if lucky enough to be able to do so with no interest added to the loan. Another option for some is to take out a 0% or low interest credit card loan that is paid back before any interest or fees add up to a significant amount. A 0% credit card check may still have fees attached to it so do your research carefully. Offers and costs can vary from company to company.
The gift of time is the most valuable gift of all. Visit the people you care about during the holidays and take an interest in their lives. Be sure to carry this gift through to the new year.
