Posted by on in News
Stand by Them | How You Can Help | Solutions Mark Baird Whether you are Blue, Red or some other spectrum like me, this book should be read.

When I wrote “The Unemployment Budget – Your Financial Survival Plan” my goal was to reach and help a million people or about 10% of the unemployed in America. I had no idea people who were gainfully employed would want the book to learn how to spend their money more wisely.  Either way I am humbled and delighted at the same time.    Brian Tracy, the author of “The Power of Self-Confidence”, was kind enough to provide an endorsement quote for the book: "This is a practical book full of proven strategies you can use immediately to get your financial life...

New Approach to Veteran Homelessness

Posted by on in News
A tsunami of homeless veterans is on the way Perhaps the most critical issue facing US veterans right now is homelessness. Currently, 69 % of our homeless veterans are over the age of 31. But over 1,400,000 other US veterans are at risk of homelessness due to poverty, lack of support networks, and dismal living conditions in overcrowded or substandard housing. This is worsening quickly with the current 1.2 million man reduction of our Armed Forces going on right now. A tsunami of homeless veterans is on the way. It is inevitable. And if the economy worsens, it will be a...

"As Americans move from defined-benefit pensions to defined-contribution plans, many households seem poorly positioned for retirement. According to the Federal Reserve’s 2013 Survey of Consumer Finances, households in the 55 to 64 age group have median 401(k) and IRA savings of just $111,000. Even those with seemingly huge 401(k) balances may not be poised for a decadent post-retirement lifestyle. “The reality is that if you’re one of the lucky few with $1 million in your 401(k) plan, you can probably draw on the order of $40,000 a year out of that plan,” says Anthony Webb, a senior research economist at Boston...

Why Celebrate “Memorial Day?”

Posted by on in News
Memorial Day 2015: Why? What Does it mean? Since 9/11/01 America has lost over 10,000 Americans, 8,000+ of these citizens were those that volunteered to join the US military after that heinous attack. On May 25, 2015 we will all share a responsibility and a duty to honor these beloved men and women of our nation. Unlike “Veterans Day” that honors all US veterans, Memorial Day is dedicated to those who have given their lives while in US military service. It is a day of remembrance for their sacrifices. It is the least that we as a nation can do. The...

Helping Homeless Veterans

Posted by on in News
Victor in the right of this picture used to have a good job. But when the company he worked for downsized in 2008 he was laid off. Due to his age he was unable to find another job. Now, he fishes everyday for his food. But recently his gear was stolen. Our homeless mission received a donation and bought Victor new poles, reels and tackle. Too many of our US veterans have fallen through the cracks of society. Some live in chronic pain that prevents them from working; some are emotionally and or mentally wounded; but most are good men and...
