Audition Video For Oprah Winfrey Network

I Sincerely Need Your Help And Vote Through 7-3-10

Woo  Hoo!  I really did it!  Got out of the comfort zone and put it all out there!

I had to apply several chapters in “Cosmic Cow Pie…Connecting The Dots” to my thought process to move on and just DO IT!  So that is what I did.

Yes, there were are pits in my stomach because of the UNKNOWN. Out of comfort zone

Doing the video and submitting the application was simply like applying for a job.  In order to get hired the work must be done and an interview takes place.  To that end I processed this adventure and am sharing it with you.

In life we all just keep on plugging away working toward our goal.

One of my goals is to :

“Connect on the right level with the right people to make a difference”

Managing Your Money! Times Have Changed.

Managing Your Money! Times Have Changed.

How many people do you know who have modified their spending behaviors in the past year?

Just about everyone I know is working on their “Financial Fitness.”

My next guest on Blogtalkrado is Peter Sorrells. Peter is the Author of, “100 Ways to Save and Grow Your Money: Financial Fitness for Regular People.”

The show is Thursday, May 27, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. PDT

Peter Sorrells holds eight patents and a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) degree from  the University of Arizona.  He has held successful engineering, marketing and management positions in a half dozen high-technology companies.  An accomplished speaker and author, he teaches large and small groups on technical, business, financial, and biblical subjects.

Peter has experinced set backs from the real estate downturn and is reinventing himself using the ideas expressed in the book.  He has stayed in his home which now has an existing loan which is double what the home is worth.  He has let several properties go on short sales and is working diligently to stay above water as the economic tide rises.

Living the money saving techniques identified in this book has given Peter the confidence to go forward sharing joy and love in his life.

Peter has some very creative ideas to help people adapt to the changing economy and save money. There are several sections on real estate and why it is important to continue to invest in real estate. Talking with Peter on the show and reading his book might be an interesting way to start conversation with potential buyers and sellers.

To learn about how you can start saving and growing your money, tune into the show Thursday May 27, 2010 at 9:00am PST. You can listen online and join the chat room, or you can call in to (347) 994-1903. We would love to have a lively discussion on the state of the economy and how we can all save money.

Below is my recent review on this book at Amazon.

5.0 out  of 5 starsYou are going to like the way you feel!,

After reading this book I felt great about being able to save more money and knew the process would not hurt. Peter puts together in short chapters a formula that makes sense and will help any one learn to save money. I actually felt the love that Peter has for mankind and helping people come through every page. The book is a humble work to help survive in today’s changing economy.

Peter Sorrells tells the reader they may be out of their comfort zone to create the discipline required to change old habits and start saving money. He describes money as a tool and like a hammer it can be used to build things or destroy property. The book describes the fact we have a choice in our actions with money and our choices will determine our savings plan. I have used the envelope concept for budgeting many times in “managing the mess” life throws out. It is a simple idea which even the youngest children can implement to help them learn to save.

This book is much more than a money saving blueprint. It goes into all facets of life planning to be able to connect the dots to create Financial Fitness. Read the book and feel the difference as you implement easy ideas to balance your budget.
