Caring By Seth Godin

Caring By Seth Godin

No organization cares about you. Organizations aren’t capable of this.

Your bank, certainly, doesn’t care. Neither does your HMO or even your car dealer. It’s amazing to me that people are surprised to discover this fact.

People, on the other hand, are perfectly capable of caring. It’s part of being a human. It’s only when organizational demands and regulations get in the way that the caring fades.

If you want to build a caring organization, you need to fill it with caring people and then get out of their way. When your organization punishes people for caring, don’t be surprised when people stop caring.

When you free your employees to act like people (as opposed to cogs in a profit-maximizing efficient machine) then the caring can’t help but happen.

How to Buy Homes Without Borrowing From the Bank

Don Nay has purchased more than 3,300 residential properties during the past 30 years and has never borrowed money from a bank to purchase a home. Now he wants to teach other people in Southern California how to buy homes the same way he did.
“Banks are financial institutions, not people,” explains Nay. “They have a cookie-cutter approach to making and servicing home loans in Southern California that is without concern for the person responsible for repaying that loan. I figured it was time to share what I’ve learned about the home buying process so that it might just help a few folks to buy a home or avoid foreclosure. It might help wake the banks up, too.”

I live in San Bernardino County and this county has been hit the hardest with foreclosures. Real estate has also been tough in Riverside County. There was an increase in foreclosures by 34% in the first part of 2013. I meet a lot of agents who say now is the time to get back into the market. I know people HAVE to be educated. The market is different. Even if you have experience, it’s best to learn what is working now and why. Don recommends a Purchase Money Mortgage and he can teach you how to use it.

Don Nay will conduct three free workshops that provide an overview of his approach to home buying. The free workshops will take place at Hilton Orange County, 3050 Bristol Street, Costa Mesa, CA 92626 on Tuesday, September 10, 2013 12:00 p.m to 3:00 p.m.; Thursday, September 12, 2013 6:00 p.m. to 9 p.m.; and Tuesday, September 17, 2013 from 12:00 p.m. to 3 p.m.
He will also conduct a three-day, in-depth seminar where he provides detailed information on how to use his process to purchase homes without bank loans. The seminar will take place on Friday, September 20, 2013 through Sunday, September 22, 2013, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Hilton Orange County, 3050 Bristol Street, Costa Mesa, CA 92626.

So we’ve survived the Mayans’ apocalypse predictions and 2013 is looking rosy, except that is, for the dreaded bank balance. It’s especially necessary to focus on getting this in order for 2013, as banks are less and less likely to bail people out if financial problems are growing. Tackle your financial worries early and follow these 3 steps to prepare for a foreseen financial crisis.
1) Get Your Finances In Order
First things first, you need to know what you’re working with, so getting your finances in order is essentially the first order of business. Start with your bank balance now and work out your monthly and weekly expenditures. Look at your income too, what are you earning and what are you spending, this will help you work out step to, which is of course…
2) Cutting Back
No doubt you’ll have noticed some things which don’t quite tally up in the way they should, perhaps you’re spending money on a gym membership you no longer use, or the odd £20 0r £30 spent on nights out, clothes or trips that you could really do without, yes clothes are things you can live without! Why not try a month on month off trick of the mind, so you’re not actually forced to give up everything all at once, because we all know that if forced to give something up completely in one go, we’re exceedingly likely to fail – remember chocolate at lent? In the first couple months of the new year why not try going a month without buying anything material – this could mean clothes, cosmetics, jewellery, games, you name it, but you can purchase nice food and dinner out, all be it occasionally. Next month try the reverse, sparingly of course, once you’ve got the hang of this little alternating trick it becomes much easier to cut back all together in the following months – it’s the best way to wean off shopaholics for sure.
3) One Day Work
There’s always something you can do to make money if you have a bit of spare time, so why not dedicate an evening or two to mystery shopping, where you could be paid to go to a restaurant and write a short review or the food and service. There are also on-line surveys that pay cash and lots of websites where you can offer up your skills on a daily basis to make a bit of extra cash, all it takes is a bit of spare time.
You never know when a financial disaster could hit in 2013; make sure you’re prepared by reading these four tips to staying on top of your finances and avoiding a financial melt down.
