    2012 Beer & Pancakes

    HOT! 
    I think I decided for certain toa ttend like... Thursday morning so I swung by Phoenix on my way back from LA. I've been up to my a$$ in the slowlane the last few years making a lot of money for the guys who sold the company I work for. Out of that deal I made... nothing. Except my job got...

    I got TERMINATED from my job yesterday...planning Entrepreneur.

    Fastlane thinking is tough - requires nutrients hitting your brain and that means food which costs money... unless there is a nice nest egg to lean on I would advocate some job 9-5 and then 5-9 at night is time to build your fastlane business. But I am currently feeling like a speedbump in the...

    What mobile phone do you use?

    OFF-TOPIC 
    I got my baby girl the Evo 4g (Sprint) and Jill the new 4G evo with sliding keyboard recently. I'm still on BBerry Tour - I carry an Ipad for Iapps and a phone for.... phone shit. I still maintain that Iphone should be called "Shitphone that rocks at all oher tasks" ...but that's me and...

    Ethics Dilemma ...... Help ?

    I may be ethically challenged but I have a different take on this. Take the $500, get it fixed for $140 and put the other $360 into your repair fund. No, I am not saying screw the insurance company, I am saying don't give away your time on this. What is your time worth? If I am...

    Why 401k's are evil...

    INVESTING HOT! 
    I do mine differently. I get a certain percentage matched dollar for dollar so I contribute that percentage thinking that buying for half off and holding it longterm is probably not awful. I also have no plans of touching that money for several years so I direct it to some pretty lame, boring...

    Website Legal Protection (resource inquiry)

    WEB/DIGITAL 
    You are thinking too hard. Find one on another site and re-purpose it. Also, let's think about where you want this website to be hosted from. The FTC seems likely to receive an executive order to start regulating the web. They can do all sorts of neat stuff to ruin your day if the...

    Help us choose a slogan!

    WEB/DIGITAL

    Dating.....Fastlane style!!

    OFF-TOPIC 
    LOL.... For all the doubters. I first knew Jill as 'Jill109' on Matchmaker... 13 years ago. To Yves' point it is better to NOT have a 'personals' section on a forum, if people meet there great but lol, Jill and I left a lot of folks on Matchmaker once we 'retired' and had no reason to go...

    Money.....What good is it...?

    Oh Cat I am surprised At you. Those who mistakenly say money has no value just dont have persepctive, with money yoi\u gain choices. Whether you spend it on another investment, a charitable endeavor a ministry - whatever. The value of money is that it buys you choices. If you choose to...

    Need advice...

    Cat - she's stubborn but I am pretty persistent and very manipulative. I pointed out that if we hit the ten year 'Get in or get out' deadline and she chose 'out'... well she would have to learn how to operate a lot of complex machinery, vacuum, stove, lawnmower, washer/dryer. We're talking...

    Need advice...

    Hatts... Step back a minute, so for every 100 mailings you are getting 4 solid leads and 4 tire kickers? Damn, that's great. Every week you add 4 rows to your spreadsheet with the sellers current 'floor' and notes about them. OK, so maybe they said no today, I seem to recall asking...

    Chase closed all my credit cards today

    Yeah they are fun to deal with. We ran some up last year and when you pay them down to free up space, what happens? They cut your limit as punishment. This isn't only the bank's fault from what I understand, the rules they have to follow make good, performing loans 'hurt' their viability in...

    3,8 % Health Care Tax ???

    TAXES | REGS 
    LOL - like poking a grizzly bear when you say that Cat... too bad I make too much to be considered a "Hard workin American". I guess I just sit on my a$$ all day and watch the numbers on my bank balance spin upwards until I decide to get up, walk to the window and pee on the heads of the...

    Wealth accumulation question

    It's a good question. Jill and I have been brainstorming on this and really I think you have to ask yourself some other questions before you find your own answer. For example, we have a list of critieria: 1. It has to be passive, fire and forget or 2. It has to involve outsourcing the...

    How do you get people to remember your name for years and years?

    OFF-TOPIC 
    Re: How do you get people to remember your name for years and yea I think you nailed it. You did something kinda unique and outrageous from the sound of it and it set you apart from the herd. ...Just proves my theory that you don't always have to do something perfectly, as long as you do it...

    How do you cope when you're down?

    MINDSET 
    LOL, thanks Cat but really, what choice did I have? Had I been rocky I'm thinkin I woulda stayed down, collected the $5M and let Clubber Lang talk all the smack he wanted to until I got to the gun cabinet. In my case that wasn't much of an option, Mr. T woulda just kept kicking the shit out of...

    Sigh. There are days when obeying the no politics rule just about requires me to handcuff myself out of reach of the computer
