I had to mail out a lot of invitations for my college graduation. I have a lot of uncles, aunts, and cousins, and then there are my grandparents. They all wanted to sit in the audience and watch me watch across the stage and get my diploma. I printed all of their names on TZ tapes and put them on the envelopes when I mailed them out. That was the most I’ve ever spent on postage in all of the years that I’ve been in college. I wasn’t sure that everyone would be able to come to the graduation, but they all replied back to me saying they would come.
The understand that they need to take care of themselves and word you feel good about. Too often people think that not taking a vacation or not pampering themselves and some other way is a good way to save money. The truth is that going to a beauty salon in Bristol to get a nice haircut and color or just getting away for a day is a good way to help keep yourself going in life. I have whole lot of people who have not gone on a vacation in the last 5 or 10 years. I’ll talk to a lot of people who simply trim their hair on their own, and they don’t bother to go get a simple, pampering treatment. This is not good.
We live in a society where you are told to push and push keep going every day. But we don’t live in a society where we are also taught how to take a moment to relax. You don’t have to go on a two-week comma $3,000 vacation in order to help relax yourself.
Someone who is new to investing may find it a bit difficult to get into, but there are things to help even the most clueless people. I was once like this, and I was able to get better because I had the FCA Umbrella to help me. I had to start off small with my first investments, even though I had the urge to dive right in and head straight for some of the more riskier ventures. Going right for the high risk things would have assuredly caused me to have financial failure, because I wouldn’t have been able to predict the market.
As my investments became successful, I worked my way up to more higher profile ones. I started to see company names that I recognized, which was kind of stunning to me.
Do you know what a gilet is? I didn’t. I found out when I got a fashion education taught by my 10 year old daughter of what clothes she is supposed to be wearing when she is at her riding school. She took me to a website that has a full line of childrens equestrian clothing to educate me. I watched as her little fingers typed the URL on the keyboard to take us to the website that has riding clothes for kids. She showed me the differences in the tweed riding jackets and the waistcoat she really wanted to add to her riding clothes.
I learned what jodhpurs were, and what breeches were. I thought it a bit strange that girls were wearing ties with their blouses, but it apparently is a riding tradition. I was just following along well enough to participate in her dreams as much as I could, but I really had no interest in riding. The important thing is that she does, and she is my little girl.
When I first heard of Paul Martin Magic, I thought that it was something for small children, to be perfectly honest. A good friend of mine told me that he is actually an entertainer for adults, and that he would definitely be the right person for our next corporate retreat. I was in charge of finding something to break the ice at the first dinner there, and she told me that a table magician would be just who was needed to do that. She told me that if I did not believe her, then look at the pictures on his website.
It was not that I didn’t believe her, but I really did not think that a magician would keep a group of 80 adults entertained. I am so glad that I was proven wrong on this though. I was thinking a magician is someone who pulls a rabbit out of a hat, but not this man.
