Comment on Can Local Businesses Compete? by Allan Liwanag @ The Practical Saver.
I think that small businesses can compete if they put customer service and adapt to the technology in their bucket list. Technology is always changing and it is necessary for small business to keep up or they run the risk of getting behind. But of course, customer service never gets old. Great customer service almost always trump great products and technology, I think.

Summer Fun Ideas
I really like these ideas. My family just started our summer fun activities. Just yesterday, we got back from our two-day trip in D.C, and VA. We really had a great time.
We scheduled ourselves to do a couple of DIY projects this summer. Hopefully, the weather starts to act like it’s Spring or Summer. I can’t wait to start creating some good DIY projects, which are all based on what my wife wants me to do. 🙂
Reinvent Yourself Every 15 Years
This is a really great post. I have changed careers 3 times in the past 12 years out of both necessity and force. What I can say is that I learned so much from every career that I have gone and I use those learning as leverage in the career that I am in right now. Yes, I totally agree with you when you said “leap of faith that something better is around the corner”. That’s exactly one of the reasons that I jumped from one career to another.
Laid Off From Your Job, Now What?
Getting laid off is not for the faint of heart. I’ve been in that situation before. I did take it well because a year before I got laid off, I was already planning on going back to school for my MBA, which I did. It wasn’t also that hard because I knew I had savings stashed away for emergency purposes of which job loss was part of.
Now, getting laid off is close to impossible because my company is secured.
April is National Financial Literacy Month
This is a great post. One of the things that I do is share my personal finance stories (ie.g. paying off debt and becoming debt-free, investing and growing my money). I like sharing stories because I feel that they’re more personable and a lot of people can relate. I know there are a lot of people I know who are in the same boat as I am. I share to them what I know, the lessons I learned as I go through my financial life, and what I’ve accomplished.
