Unemployment Versus Unemployable

You hear all the time right now about unemployment.  People are going through layoffs, downsizings and rightsizings as companies seek to find a way through the current economy, or give up entirely and close their doors.

On the other hand, if you travel in small business / entrepreneurial circles, you hear people talk about being unemployable.  I’m not talking about people who have no skills and no ambition.  These are bright people with a lot of skills.  So why are they unemployable?

The Bad Economy and the Death of the Dollar

I was looking for something to listen to and came across Robert Kiyosaki‘s audio book – Increase Your Financial IQ. It was published in March 2008 and has some very good, current information. I highly recommend it. There was some important information in the first chapter that I want to share here.

In 1971 President Nixon took the US off the gold standard, which changed how our money works. Prior to 1971, the dollar was based on gold, which has intrinsic value. To save money was equal to saving gold, so it made sense to save money for retirement or college because it would hold value.

PROVEN: Science to Getting Rich

I spent this past weekend at a Bob Proctor live seminar.  The man really knows how to make money, and he should because he’s been studying it for more than 40 years.  One of the books he has studied is The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles, which was written 100 years ago.  Have you seen or read The Secret?  The movie and book were originally inspired by The Science of Getting Rich.

Do You Have an MBA?

Do you have an MBA? I don’t mean a Masters degree in business. I mean, do you have a Massive Bank Account? I heard the term most recently from Loral Langemeier who created the Cash Machine concept that I talked about last time. You could say that you get an MBA by majoring in your cash machine.

Choose Your Reality

I’m going to take a break from the string of posts I have been writing to talk about something that has been bothering me lately. Over the past few months I have been reading conflicting stories on CNN about the economy, gas prices, and other things that seem to affect us on a daily basis. You hear from one expert that we are in a recession, from another one that we’re not in a recession, or even two experts arguing about what the actual qualifications are for a recession. We all probably agree with the experts who say that high gas prices are bad for the economy. Well, I read a story recently from an expert who said that falling gas prices, as they are now, are bad for the economy. It appears that they are and indicator of a coming recession.
