No More Buying Cookie Dough From Your Kids!

By: Genna Jenkin The Your Smart Money Moves Mom We’ve all been there. At some point during the school year your child brings home the dreaded fundraising envelope! Inside are all the materials you will need to ply friends and family to purchase vats of cookie dough, reams of wrapping paper or the never-ending magazine subscriptions. However since these unwanted items help in providing much-needed funds to your local schools the purchases are begrudgingly made. Can you imagine what a treat it would be to be able to provide those same funds to your youngster’s school not by buying something, but by getting rid of something you no longer need? This is the concept behind an amazing program conceived by Stacey Boyd. Since this entrepreneur and CEO of Schoola.com opened the cyber doors of her new idea, schoola.com/stitch, many parents throughout the country have signed up to make money for their schools by cleaning out their closets, specifically their children’s closets. ...

Entrepreneur Series Lesson 10 – Passion, Persistence, and Perseverance

Lessons one through nine of my entrepreneur series were lessons extracted from my own business and other business owners across the country over the past twenty years.   Undoubtedly in your first year of business, you will make your fair share of mistakes like anyone starting a new venture.   There are so many valuable pieces of wisdom to learn as an entrepreneur, but here are my big three traits you must have to truly succeed in your business. Passion – Many business ventures people conjure up in their heads often revolve around the dreams of making a lot of money.  While building your wealth can be an outcome of a successful entrepreneurial pursuit, passion around your dreams is what will get you through the good times and the bad times.   When you get out of bed every day with emotions that are so compelling around what you are doing, it becomes easy to motivate others to get excited around that dream.    ...

Entrepreneur Series – Lesson 6 – Poor Staffing Decisions

One of the first things I heard when I got into management in my career is the phrase “you have to put the right talent on the bus”. While I understood its meaning, it took many years to realize how important hiring decisions are to grow an organization the right way. I also felt the pain of making poor hiring decisions, and how much time and productivity you can lose from just one bad hire. No entrepreneur lives in the panacea of having zero turnover as sometimes they might like to make it seem, but certainly making the right staffing decisions by putting people in the right roles can allow your start up venture to get off on the right foot. One of the critical questions to ask yourself early in your venture is what role do you (the CEO/owner) play in your firm. If I was to use a baseball analogy, what jobs are you going to be a ...

Why Do We Love Coupon Sites So Much?

It’s true, we all love to get a deal.  In fact, I’m pretty certain that if your married, your wife your husband came home one night and said, “Don’t you just love this new (insert word) that I bought today.  Even better, I got it on SALE!”    Why is it that the word SALE or DEAL puts into a hypnotic state reminding me of how Fred Flintstone looked in that one episode where he turned into a zombie every time he heard the word bet?   There’s just something so juicy about thinking that you got something for nothing.   Or at least that you got something for something less than you thought you were going to pay for it when the buying process started. Gary Lipovetsky, CEO of  DealFind (www.dealfind.com) says, “Everybody wants a great deal and a cool way to save money.”  With the proliferation of different coupon and deal sites, it can often be hard to figure out whether ...

Save $1,000 On Your Cell Phone Bill?

How is it possible that such a simple device like our mobile phone has become so complicated?  I can remember back in 1991 when I had my first cell phone (that I couldn’t even detach) installed into my beautiful Dodge Shadow.   A phone was used pretty simply to make a phone call.  Today, we’ve got texting, calling, messaging, games, and thousands of applications with the electronic wallet not too far behind.    This means as the CEO of your family finances, you’ve got to more closely assess the cost of doing business with your mobile phone choice and your provider.  It’s important that you proactively seek out how to keep your bill lower as your mobile phone provider won’t be calling you with a discount on the bill.  Here are five ways you can control the costs on your family cell phone bill, and maybe even save as much as a $1,000 in the process. 1)  AVOID CONTRACTS! BUY A CONTRACT-FREE PHONE:   ...
