2016-11-20 Saving Money On Christmas Gifts With Aasim Inshirah & Ed Fulbright On Mastering Your Money Radio

Saving Money on Christmas Gifts

You have approximately 30 plus days to Christmas.  Christmas has become a money event. Your kids expect to have some type of materialistic gift.  They are asking for Xboxes,  the latest cell phone and more.  It has become a tally of gifts.  It creates stress, hassles and shopping burn outs for parents.  Christmas was not originally meant to become a retailer’s bonanza. 

I remember during Christmas time as a child looking forward to receiving homemade cookies, cakes and pies.  In fact, i remember a client who reduced their Christmas gift bill significantly by coming up with a family Christmas cookie recipe. The cookies were looked at by friends and family as a sign of great love and affection.  Some friends were greatly disappointed when they received store bought gifts instead of the homemade cookies.  The family reduced their gift spending from 6% of annual income to 2% by using this strategy.  This is not a scrooge strategy but one to get your values more in sync with your pocket book and give you extra money to fund your kid’s college fund, your emergency fund, increase your retirement contribution and more.   

Joining us for this discussion on SAVING MONEY ON CHRISTMAS GIFTS is Aasim Inshirah who is the station’s producer and makes sure Mastering Your Money is available to our listeners.

2016-11-13 Do I Want Venture Capital With William Crowder & Ed Fulbright On Mastering Your Money Radio

William Crowder- Do I Want Venture Capital Show 

Venture capital is financing that investors provide to startup companies and small businesses that are believed to have long-term growth potential. For startups without access to capital markets, venture capital is an essential source of money. Risk is typically high for investors, but the downside for the startup is that these venture capitalists usually get a say in company decision.   Since African Americans have limited access to capital, will Venture Capital be any easier.

Joining us for our discussion on Do I Want Venture Capital?  is William Crowder  who is calling in from his Philadelphia PA office.  William joined Comcast Ventures in 2012 to lead the Catalyst Fund which focused on investing in startups with diverse founding teams.  He is responsible for identifying, executing and managing new investments while supporting existing portfolio companies for the Fund.  He has an East Coast focus with a particular interest in startups leveraging data and technology to create new operating models for inefficient markets.  A former bootstrapped entrepreneur himself, William’s early stage experience also extends to his involvement with DreamIt Ventures, a global startup accelerator, where he is a partner.

As you look around a poker table, you read your opponents’ “tells”—tapping a finger, stirring a drink, scratching a nose—and you make your next move accordingly. The same should hold true when it comes to negotiations.  Whether making million dollar deals at work, a new salary, or your next real estate purchase, you not only need to “read between the lines” to detect body language signals but you need to learn how to control your own as well.
