Alot of people quit their jobs every year and in doing so lose focus and forget the main purpose of quitting. Remember all those times you aid you would do this and that but you did not have enough free time to do it. Well when you are in between jobs and have idle time people can often lose their focus. Word to the wise some solid advice; Hit the phones, and the e-mail list build relationships before you need them as these can be of vital importance later on down the road, during down time if you have things that are in dire need of being accomplished write a list and check it off when you accomplish a task in other words JUST DO IT! No procrastination. If you have a serious problem with motivation you can always hire a career coach. But remember time spent on coaching assignment could be better spent on networking and researching companies that you want to possibly work for. A very helpful website is called wetfeet.com it sells insider guides on individual companies.
For the person that wants to be a avid stock picker there is a wonderful website that I am a member of http://www.stockpikr.com/ Members can go and set up an account for free and you can create an online portfolio of the stocks that you currently hold after that you can view and compare information from thousands of other members portfolios, this which in turn will give you a more informed idea about you stock and also which stock to choose from.Might I add that you will have the chance to view professionals portfolios. Also I might add is that Visa is has filed for an IPO and will begin trading publicly sometime in 2008 this stock will have good aspects as its rival MasterCard went public in may at $39 a share and since then has quadrupled and is now currently at $209.60!!!!!!
There comes great news that every college graduate loves to hear at least me and I hate to say it but president Bush ain't all that bad in a way. In September Bush signed into law collegecost reduction and access act. This act cuts loan rates for current and future students, forgives debt for some graduates and clears up the rules for those 529 savers.
Rates on subsidized loans will be cut from the current 6.8% to 3.4% over a 5 year period. With the 529 plans withdrawals from accounts held by grandparents will no longer be taken into account for federal aid decisions.
As of July 2009 a new income based repayment program will be implemented it will cap the amount a student has to repay a year out of their income at 15% if their income. and after 25 years any remaining debt will be discharged. Also if a grad works in a public service profession such as teaching or social work and makes 120 monthly payments the balance of their loan will be forgiven! Sweet!
