    Jim Salmon of Navy Federal Credit Union is guest on Small Business Week

    in Lifestyle

    Every year since 1963, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week, which recognizes the critical contributions of America's entrepreneurs and small business owners. More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year.


     


    LIfe Lessons kicks off National Small Business Week with Jim Salmon, the head of Business Lending at Navy Federal Credit Union. Salmon shres how to start and grow a business, and he'll share information about programs designed to help military veterans run a successful business. A military veteran himself, Salmon will also discuss why it's good business to support veteran-owned and operated businesses and how veterans have many of the skills necessary to run a successful business.  


     


    We hear a lot about helping our brave veterans, but the sad fact is that despite an improving economy, many have difficulty finding employment after leaving the military. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), young male veterans, ages 18 to 24, who served during the Gulf War II era, including those who have served at any time since September 2001, had an unemployment rate of 21.9%(more than double the national average).

    National Review:  Since Politics Nation debuted on MSNBC on August 29, 2011, Al Sharpton’s nonprofit National Action Network has collected more than $2.38 million in contributions from unions, according to Department of Labor records. Meanwhile, Sharpton has often used his show to promote pro-labor viewpoints, also inviting union leadership on as guests.


     


     Sharpton has swapped donations to National Action Network for air time before, though it’s unclear whether such arrangements apply to his MSNBC show.  Sharpton has swapped donations to National Action Network for air time before, though it’s unclear whether such arrangements apply to his MSNBC show.

    Financial Grace: Should I Cut Up My Credit Cards?

    in Women

    Answer:  This question requires you to look at the bigger picture and understand some economic logistics.  To start with it’s critical to know the difference between debt and credit.  One enslaves, the other empowers.  One expands, the other decreases.  In this way, both debt and credit are extremely powerful, but at opposite ends of the spectrum.  Access to credit is extremely powerful and has the potential to create exponentially positive results.  Misuse of credit is also extremely powerful and can exponentially create negative results.


    Cancelling a credit card and cutting up a card because you believe it’s necessary to get out of debt is ill-informed advice and will sabotage financial blessing.  It reinforces scarcity, fear and doubt which are not from the Lord just as much as the bondage from non-productive, consumable debt is.  Join me on the CWA Radio Network for Financial Grace Radio to unpack this huge, critical subject and learn how to manage and prosper from credit, despite a potentially ‘maxed out’ debt situation.
