    The First Amendment is frequently cited by anyone who is told to quiet down what they are saying. But what does it actually protect, and from whom? Floyd Abrams represented The New York Times in the 1971 Pentagon Papers case, and is author of the new book The Soul of the First Amendment. He explains to Jason how the First Amendment actually protects us, what it DOESN'T protect us from, and why some areas aren't as protected as others.

    SUCCESS DEMANDS PROCESS!

    in Finance

                                 *** THIS IS A PRE-RECORDED SHOW AND WE WILL NOT BE TAKING ANY PHONE CALLS*** 
    We recently conducted a survey where participants were asked whether or not they had a documented process they consistently followed in order to achieve their financial goals. 36% of the respondents stated they had a documented process they followed; 43% stated they had a process but it wasn’t in writing; and 20% responded that they did not have a written process and don’t feel that having a written process is necessary. Bottom line, everyone has a process whether it’s documented or not, and every financial decision you make moves you closer or further away from your financial goals.  A written process helps to keep you focused (especially when life throws you an unexpected curve ball) and your actions consistent which gives rise to quality decisions.  If you have a process that’s working for you, i.e. moving you towards your financial goals, great! If not, or your process needs a little fine tuning I’d like to share with you a process that gets results!
    Join us and learn the 3 basic financial documents you'll ever need to help get your financial house in order. Here how this proven process can move you from where you are to where you want to be!
