Happy Monday WA readers!

Last week we had a nice mix of articles. We talked about Burger King making a comeback to the stock market, I provided a video review of the Square credit card processing service, and we also finally made a profit from installing a dimmer switch!

Also, and I hope you didn’t forget, Mother’s Day was yesterday! For you mom’s reading, I hope you had a very special & memorable mother’s day!

I have a round up of posts straight from the Yakezie Network below. So, I hope you are strapped in, have a cup of coffee, and you’re ready to begin your day. As I write this out I’m bobbing my head to some great mindless music like the hamsters in those Kia commercials!

Enjoy the rest of your day, and here are recent articles from the Yakezie network organized by topic:

Mother’s Day:

Student Loans:

Mortgage & Household:

Entrepreneurship:

Life Management:

Investing:

      Hey Sam,

      No kidding there! I try to make Saturday and Sunday my days off with no work, and it’s a cute idea, but it never happens. LOL. People ask me what I’m doing on the weekend and I usually say something to the effect of “I have no formal plans, the weekends plan themselves.” :-D

      Thanks,
      Timothy

    You have too much time on your hands! That is a lot of reading, but of the articles I read do make for some good reading, especially the debt and saving categories-excellent!

    Someting they don’t tell you in the media, when it comes to the unemployment rate, is that many are coming to he end of the unemployment pay, still without a job. These people are just falling off the system, thereby incorrectly reducing the UE figures. That said, information in these two categories is even more important at this juncture. Which I guess as people become “desperate” they will turn to entrepreneurship to feed their families, so that category is close behind along with Life Management.

    OK so they are all important! Have not had a chance to read them all but I don’t have a much time as some people! ;) At least I know what is important and hit WealthArtisan 3-4 times a week to see whats new.

    You should check out the post I did this morning. It may give you some ideas about your next post:

    Have a great day and may God Bless!

      Hey Steve,

      A good friend of mine was having surgery, so I ended up with an unusual amount of “free reading time”, LOL. Everything went well, so now he is in recovery.

      Great article (I added a link to it in this carnival), it is so important for people to be prepared. I tried to leave a comment on it, but the comment form wouldn’t pull up. It’s possible that it might be the browser or firewall I’m behind currently (I’m not at home). So, I’ll leave it here!

      When people hear the word “prep” it makes them think of tin foil hats, and nuclear war conspiracies, but there are so many other things that warrant “prepping” that people tend to forget. Ironically enough, my friend found himself in one of these emergency situations. Luckiily, he had prepped.

      I love Dave Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover! I read it from cover to cover twice. I don’t love his investment advice, but even that is OK advice if you have no investment experience or plans currently.

      I’m really glad that you liked RaffleCopter, I think that is just one of the coolest plugins I’ve found so far. Wait until you see how easy finding a winner is! Thanks for stopping in, and the best to you!

      Thanks,
      Timothy

        Always a pleasure Tim. Every time I mention gardening, canning etc to someone new, they look at me like I have gone off the deep end. These are not new ideas as our previous generations did many things that in todays world seem “absurd”. But thats ok, if everybody in the world thought the same way, this would be a pretty boring place. Thanks for the add. Glad to hear your friend is doing well.

      Hey Robert,

      You’re quite welcome! You highlighted excellent points, but the last one was the most important. Most small businesses start out without even using a basic accounting software. Basically, the business runs under the table until they get enough going on that they realize “we might get in trouble if we don’t so something!” LOL. Not the best way to start out!

      Thanks,
      Timothy

      Hey Buck!

      Thanks, I’m glad you like it! :-D You’re very welcome for the include. It took a lot of time organizing everything, but it was worth it. I don’t know when I’ll do another this large, but it’s been a while since my last one, so I figured why not! :-D Thanks for stopping in!

      Thanks,
      Timothy

      Sorry,

      I forgot to mention how much I thoroughly enjoyed picturing you at that event. You and I are quite similar, I easily would have gone to such an event, and I know my friends would have given me crooked looks! :-D Three cheers for not caring what others think! Anyways, congratulations on this chapter in your life and keep the great writing coming!

      Thanks,
      Timothy

        I’m guessing that’s why we enjoy each other’s writing. Cut from the same cloth, haha. It’s taken awhile, but finally, finally doing things for me without caring about what others think. Very valuable lesson to pass along. Keep up your good work as well!
