I was at my bank the other day--------San Diego County Credit Union------- and they have a new "App" where you can deposit your checks via your iPhone.

But then I learned that you just take a picture of the check and it is then treated as a paperless transaction. :)
I just finished reading The Power of Charm by Brian Tracy. This was an easy read, and although it did not hold any earth shattering revelations, I thought the chapter on eye contact was worth mentioning. Did you know that eye contact projects to your speaker (client, partner, boss) that you are involved? it is a basic way that people will know if you are listening.

I like to save money---in fact, since the economy has taken a downturn, I have made it a goal of mine---to see how much money I can save (on things I thought I could NEVER do without--- like the latest suede boots) and deposit into a Roth IRA or other retirement account. Last year I fully contributed to my Roth IRA without making anymore money than the year before! Success! Always up for a challenge, I was stoked. I wrote this blog post about how to cut corners and save money, and it has some great painless ways to do so----if it's not (5 comments)
Never A Better Time To Invest in Real Estate Than ---- NOW! - 01/01/12 06:22 PM
If you're thinking about investing in a rental property, experts say low home prices combined with low interest rates make this the best time in years to become a real-estate investor.What's more, the real-estate market is starting to recover: U.S. houses lost $489 billion in value during the first 11 months of 2009, but that was significantly lower than the $3.6 trillion lost during 2008, according to real-estate website Zillow.com. "We haven't seen home prices this low in so many years, coupled with the rates being so low," says Jill Sjolin, an agent with Windermere Real Estate in Woodinville, Wash., who specializes (4 comments)
