Tip of TODAY


Did you know that the joy of finding $100 has been proven to be a lot less than the
pain of losing $50?

It’s a crazy fact but it’s true. 

Think about it. You’ll make more of an effort NOT to lose 50 bucks than you will to
earn $100.

It’s because it feels as if you are losing something that you already own. It’s
yours… and it should stay that way.

The craziest part is that there are a lot more ways to make money than to lose it. 

There are literally millions of ways to earn money… and only a handful of ways to
lose it. 

When it comes to losing money in stocks or in business most of the ways to lose
money are emotional. You become too attached to a business or stock pick and hold
onto while it hemorrhages cash.

However, in the world of your personal finances there are a few things that a lot of
people do to throw cash away every single day. 

This is unnecessary loss. This is money you CAN and should keep.

What am I talking about here? 

I’m talking about interest payments. Every single dollar you spend on interest is
money you’re throwing away. Yes, I realize that there are times you need to borrow
money and it can be worth it. 

But in those moments when you have to pay interest… you need to make sure that you
are paying the least amount of interest possible. 

If you’ve heard my story about buying a new car, you’ll remember that I spent an
extra $6,868 JUST in interest. And that was all because I had a low credit score.

Thankfully I took action into my own hands and took my credit score from a lowly 520
to a stellar 737 once I started working on improving it. Those lessons I learned
while boosting my credit turned into The Credit Solution Program.

The Credit Solution Program has helped thousands of people boost their score by 50,
100, even 150 points more. 

What does that mean? It means that those people will never waste another dime on
unnecessary interest payments. They’ll get all the loans they want. The house they
want. The credit cards with the best rewards. 

The banks now come to them for their business… not the other way around. 

Make sure you don’t waste another penny. Start improving your score today…you won’t
regret it. 

Remember, everyday you delay is another day wasted.

What happens if you fail to plan for your minor child?

If you do not plan for the needs of your minor children, a Court will take charge of the assets in guardianship proceeding.  Even if you nominate a Guardian, the Court will have the final say.  Not only is the guardianship process expensive, but there is no way to ensure that the Court will carry out your values and desires for your children.  The Courts generally want to protect minors.  Therefore, they will set the minor’s money into a blocked account that can only be accessed through a Court Order.  If the child, for instance, needs braces, you would have to petition the Court and go to a hearing to get guardianship ends when the child reaches age 18.  At the time, the child is given unconditional control of their property.  Most people do not want to hand over a larger sum of money to an 18 year old, who could blow through that money in a short period of time.  Most 18 year olds do not have the maturity level yet to handle a large sum of money

The guardianship proceeding through the Court can be circumvented by setting up a living trust for the benefit of your minor children.  If that trust is properly funded with your assets, you can avoid any Court intervention.  The terms of the trust can provide for the child’s health, education, maintenance and support.  You can decide at what age you want the child to access the money and for what purposes.

I live to sing. My mother was a Juilliard trained pianist and a
wonderful singer herself. She instilled in me the love of music -
all styles - from Beethoven to Basie as I like to say.
My journey has been unique.

After college I pursued a management career in Fortune 500
company that eventually led to ownership of a successful sales

But music - singing - is in my blood. So, after work, I would
moonlight at local jazz clubs in San Francisco.

It's hard to believe sometimes that I'm about to release my fifth
CD on my own record label, Regina Records.

With such featured artist as Gerald Albright, Rick Braun,
Chris Botti, and Jeff Lorber.

I fell that I have a fine body of music geared for contemporary
jazz lovers with discerning taste.

And so the journey continues!

Lost in Translation

I remember as a kid we used to play a game called “Telephone.” It was a simple game where one person would create a silly message and whisper it to another person. That person would then try to remember as many details of the message as possible and pass it along to the next person, and so forth, until the final recipient of the message was tasked with saying aloud the often poorly translated message. This is a perfect example of how easy it is for information to get lost in translation.

Today’s consumer is being constantly bombarded with information from companies vying for attention and looking to persuade consumers with their message. In such a competitive environment it is important that your brand stand out and that you deliver a message that makes your prospects understand what you are saying, immediately.

Having an effective message that is direct and easy for customers to understand makes them feel informed and more capable of making a decision.  It demonstrates confidence in your brand and its values and that you have thought about how you want to be perceived by your potential clients. A web   video is a simple way to make sure that your message is heard loud and clear.

At Dream Shore Studios we specialize in telling your story and creating an effective presentation to drive your message home. We are able to take the roughest of ideas 
and transform them into a message which engages the customer and brings in new business.
