FINANCE

Sid Davis


Our guest was Sid Davis. Sid has authored 4 books on home selling, buying and effective renovations.
How do I pick the right home? How much can I afford? What do I do first? How do I avoid common mistakes? This book answers all these questions and hundreds more. Sid wants to be sure you talk to the right people, ask the right questions, cover all the bases, and get the best possible house for your budget. Step-by-step checklists help ensure you're doing everything right, and at the right time. His book helps readers face the challenges of deciding whether or not to use an agent (and how to find one), estimating a price, and deciding which upgrades are worth making -- and which ones are not -- to add to their home's value. When preparing to sell a home, every little thing counts. "Home Makeovers That Sell" offers everything from last-minute tidying tips and staging strategies to inexpensive improvements that will boost the market value of any home. The key is to allow potential buyers to see the home as they might live in it, not how the current owner does.

Annie Korzen 

Our guest was famed author and actress Annie Korzen whose fantastic book "Bargain Junkie: Living The Good Life on the Cheap" will show us all how to save money and look great during this trying economy. Forget fashionistas. Meet the bargainista. Annie Korzen is a thrifty woman with expensive tastes. Raised by an immigrant mother who reused tea bags, Annie learned early on how to be an economista. In Bargain Junkie, Korzen shares her hilarious tales from the trenches--the garage sales, estate sales, thrift stores, rummage sales, and online auctions. Korzen haggles, scrimps, saves, and stretches her dollars and her imagination so she can afford to travel, dress well, and eat out whenever possible.

R. Kevin Price 

Are you ready for retirement? Are you set to enjoy life to the fullest when you retire? Whether you are young or old, you need to listen to author Kevin Price talk about his book "Successful Retirement Guide".

The purpose of the Successful Retirement Guide is to help you (or your parent, spouse, friend, client or coworker) make the most of  retirement by becoming and remaining intellectually, socially and physically engaged with life.

 

Donald H Young 


If you just look around you it is easy to see that people around the world are experiencing something which has not happened since the 1930s, and with all the disappointments and uncertainties which 2008 brought, it is not surprising that people are buying US government obligations which pay negative interest just to be sure that they get their money back. 

Achieving financial security is always an important objective, but the present circumstances make it imperative and provide real motivation. Our next guest is Donald H. Young, author of the book “You Can Do It – An Easy Step by Step Guide to Financial Security” This book makes it possible to focus on the key elements involved in achieving financial security at a time when even more can be accomplished than is normally the case, particularly from an investment standpoint.
