    Guest Renee' Financial Planner/Adviser Speaks Her Concerns About Money

    in Finance

    What Is the Role of a Financial Planner you may ask?

    A financial planner is an expert who focuses on helping people gain control over their financial situation. Depending on the needs and requests of the client, this can mean anything from setting up a budget to investing extra income or planning retirement options. Financial planners are no accountants, and they are usually not in charge of the money directly, instead focusing on providing advice and letting the client make the final decisions

    A financial planner will, first and foremost, help clients get control of their current financial issues, especially debts and cash flow. Depending on the type of income and the expenses of the household, this can mean organizing and planning capital influx, learning to reinvest and risk management. If there are outstanding debts or major financial issues that are putting at risk the good credit history of the client, a financial planner can help devise a payment plan and help the client understand how to better distribute his income so he can make the most of it.

    Healing4innerpeace Announcing Love for All Hatred for None Day A Global Event

    in Spirituality

    Announcing Love for All Hatred for None Day  A Global Event


    For more information:



    Love is the one thing that can bring us all together.

    To serve that purpose, the Global Mission of Peace (GMoP) announces the first international Love for All, Hatred for None Day on Sunday, January 31, 2016, a day of sharing, caring and celebration.

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/loveforallhatredfornoneday. Refer to this page to see what others are doing.

    On Love for All, Hatred for None Day, if you are aware of a group that has been insulted, injured or otherwise hurt by words or deeds of hatred, you can take action to apologize and make amends on behalf of the community. For example, bring flowers to the injured parties. Another idea is to organize a fix-up event to repair vandalism.

    The Global Mission of Peace feel that such acts can bridge the gap between people of all faiths and can defuse the hatred and fear that’s been fomented against so many God-loving people.

    For more information and to see the Love for All, Hatred for None Day activities promoting caring, tolerance and acceptance, see our Facebook page above.

    In addition, we’re encouraging people in all the world’s religions to join in peace and love by giving the prayer below for reading at worship services to be held on January 31 or held on days leading up to that day.


    Thank you for considering this gesture of caring and reconciliation.
