      February's Just Around The Corner

      January 2010 came in with a Bang, and February will be adding to the sparks and whistles.  There's Black History month with free fascinating lectures, tours and activities.  For those die hard sports fans many will be preparing  for a spectacular Super Bowl party.  Others will be taking advantage of special deals on romantic get-a-aways  and dining for two.  That said, everyone wants to know how to get more bang for the buck.  And speaking about bucks could anyone out there use more bucks?  If you have a family member who's out of a job, he or she is being asked to seriously consider two options.  Going back to school under a Pell Grant and/or consider recession proof business opportunities. 

      Going Back to School
      Of course your thinking who has the bucks for that anymore?  You might recall that under the current administration a family member can go back to school and still draw on unemployment benefits using the Pell Grant.  If one of the students parents are unemplyed this might interest you.  The new Budget includes a new five-year, $2.5 billion Access and Completion Incentive Fund to support innovative State efforts to help low-income students succeed and complete their college education. That said, it may be time to think seriously about taking advantage of these initiatives. 

      Recession Proof Business Opportunities
      Many who were unemployed during past recessions took advantage of two things. Recession proof business opportunities and lower priced resources to get thier businesses off and running.  Thousands went on to be successful, earning three or more times the income compared to income earned from their previous jobs.  What are a few recession proof business opportunities that won't break the bank to start up?  Here are a few.

      1. Day care service

      2. For those with nursing degree: Assisted Living services

      3. Grocery shopping and delivery service

      4. Plant care service

      5. House sitting services

      6. Bakery service

      7. Office party catering and cleanup service

      8. Marketing and promoting a low cost high demand product/service online.

      Brenda and I love to set aside Friday as our Date night.  We've been doing this for the past 29 years.  I would venture to say we problem only missed 5 Friday night dates in all that time.  We like to mix it up. We might just take a ride down to the local diner and grab a pizza and soda or we might take it all home and watch a newly released movie.  We find that we enjoy ourselves most when we don't have high expectations.  Just deliberately making plans to be alone to enjoy each other is really what being on a good date is all about.  If you're planning on taking your loved one on a weekend special in February you're probably going to eat in and dine out.  That said consider saving a bundle while having a ball. Whip out the entertainment book and call ahead to make sure your two for one coupon will be honored.  Looking for discounts on dining movie tickets, gifts and the Entertainment book? Go here…
