Church Notes: Peopleology – What to Do When People Tear You Down

Church Notes: Peopleology – What to Do When People Tear You Down

People where nudging me and telling me to shut off my phone.  Leaders, with curiosity, where glancing at what I was doing during service.   It looked like I was not setting a good example while sitting in church.  Once Amy told them what I was doing, they stopped asking and focused again on Pastor Kent Munsey’s message.  Trust me, I was not texting in church…

GUEST POST:

It is amazing the people you meet online, via Twitter or Facebook, who share the same passions and areas of interest as you.  During Veteran’s Day a couple weeks ago, I had met via social media, Wes Brown.  I was delighted to ,”tweet up”, alongside him to honor the United States Armed Forces and the veterans who have fought bravely for this country.  I asked him if there is something he can share with our listeners of Money Smart Radio and readers of our blog.

Enjoy…Matthew Sapaula

Highly Successful People: How to Pick a Winner Using These 7 Qualities

Highly Successful People: How to Pick a Winner Using These 7 Qualities

I have been through many business partners, helped coach many clients/students and recruited large sales teams.  It is within this process that I have shared in the success and failure of my decisions.  One of my biggest personal flaws is that I have the tendency to like every person that I meet.  In fact, I want them to win in whatever they set out to do…more so than they want to win for themselves.  Here are seven key qualities I have observed in highly successful people that I have had a pleasure in working with as I reach certain goals, helping me get closer to realizing my dreams.

Oprah Ends Show in Chicago 2011

Agh! It’s official…according to the Associated Press.

Everywhere I travel and mention that I am from Chicago, people always ask, “Can you get me tickets to Oprah?”  I am embarrased to answer, “I have never been to a live show!” Well, it looks like I have less than two years to make a check off on my “bucket list”.

PODCAST on Personal Finance: Is it that important to save my money, now?

PODCAST on Personal Finance: Is it that important to save my money, now?

Probably one of the LAST things on people’s minds, especially heading into the the Holiday shopping season, is saving money.  However, this is a great time to take a step back and reflect on our money issues and personal finance habits.  Hopefully we have been able to see the ways we can stretch our dollars to make ends meet, balance our budget and checkbook and find out how our company 401(k) plan actually works.

The silver lining in this recession is that our nation has become more fiscally conscious and most are beginning to understand the errors of our “consumeristic” ways…hopefully.

If personal savings from each paycheck, commission, product sale or big payday was not on the top of your list of “to-dos” when you receive your cash, then hopefully this special, quick podcast may encourage you.

First, I just want to send a Happy Veterans Day THANK YOU to all servicemembers in and out of uniform.  It’s the world’s greatest fraternity.  I’m always amazed when I meet strangers and engaging in a conversation with them to later find out they are former military.  It ALWAYS brings that conversation to immediate rapport, connection and trust.

Marine Corps (USMC): Happy Birthday Devil Dawgs!!

Oooooo-freakin-rraaaah!  This day brings me great pride, honor and dignity.  My closest family and friends know that I value this special birthday of our beloved United States Marine Corps (USMC), over my own.

Back in 1775, even before our country was formed, Captain Samuel Nicholas formed two battalions of Continental Marines in Philadelphia as naval infantry.  This has evolved to the modern day Marine Corps you experience today.

Pre-pay Your Mortgage Early – a Wise Thing to Do?

Taking callers questions on this touchy topic

What this recession is clearly telling us, is traditional retirement and financial planning methods have gone bad.  For instance, have you been told that the best way to become debt-free is to send additional payments to your mortgage company?

Millions of American homeowners have followed this path, then lost their jobs or faced a change in health, spent all their emergency cash and charged up credit cards…then lost their homes.
