GOOD MONEY WORD WEEK 21—DECISIONS

GOOD MONEY WORD WEEK 21—DECISION…a choice that you make about something after thinking about it. In my book, I list four things that will help or hinder you from getting the things you want. The third is “the decisions you make.” If two people decide to go from Miami, Florida, to Atlanta, Georgia, and one starts walking north, while the other hops in a fire engine red Camaro and speeds south. Three hours later, not only will the driver in the Camaro be farther from Atlanta, if the driver doesn’t hit the brakes, the car will end up in the Atlantic Ocean; while the person walking will be three hours closer to Atlanta. The moral of the story is, if you decided to go the wrong way, it doesn’t matter how fast you go, you are just getting where you do not want to be faster. See you next week!

GOOD MONEY GIFT WEEK 21—AMERICAN RED CROSS

GOOD MONEY GIFT WEEK 21—AMERICAN RED CROSS…The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors. My brother Harold was in the Navy during WWII, and I remembered him telling me how the Red Cross would find soldiers who had family emergencies. The Red Cross would then help the soldiers get home. Locally, I have witnessed the Red Cross in action after climactic disasters, like Hurricane Andrew, and individual disasters, like a family’s home burning to the ground. If you have not already given at least $7.00 this week to someone or something you care about, I believe that money donated here https://www.redcross.org/  is a good gift for a good cause. See you next week!

GOOD MONEY WORD WEEK 20—WORDS

GOOD MONEY WORD WEEK 20—WORDS…sounds or combinations of sounds that have a meaning and are spoken or written. In my book, I list four things that will help or hinder you from getting the things you want. The second is “the words you know.” Words are they symbols and / or sounds used to organize your thoughts. These words come from a credit card ad: “APR will be 14.74% – 24.74%.” If you know that APR, means annual percentage rate, you understand that concert you charged for $100 could end up costing you as much as $125 long after the music stopped playing. I am not saying don’t go to concerts, I am saying the right words help you know what you are paid for what you got. See you next week!

GOOD MONEY GIFT WEEK 20—ST. JOHN CDC

The St. John Community Development Corporation’s mission is to energize the vitality and positive image of Overtown and Greater Miami-Dade County, through partnerships that build and rehabilitate housing, strengthen the economic base and enhance the quality of life in Overtown and greater Miami-Dade County. A lifetime ago, my mom and dad lived there, my oldest brother Harold was born there, my brother Bobby patrolled there. As a child, I went to youth events at St. John’s and bobbed for apples with my mouth—gross, but true. Anyway, back on point, if you have not already given at least $7.00 this week to someone or something you care about, I believe that money donated here http://stjohncdc.org/  is a good gift for a good cause. See you next week!
