    Create a simple tool to manage your personal expenses!

    in Self Help

    Since April is Financial Literacy Month and tax time has passed, let's begin focusing on our finances for the remainder of 2015.  I know you have been putting your receipts into a shoebox or an accordion file, so let’s start recording, tracking and managing those expenses so we can make some basic financial decisions like; what vacation(s) can we schedule this year?  Which expense(s) can we cut back on to start saving towards our year-end-goal?  


    Let me share with you this awesome tool that you can create by attending my signature Microsoft Excel training program called the "Manage Your Personal Finances" or MYPF Learning Program. The MYPF Learning Program takes a total of eight hours to complete.  During the training you will learn various Microsoft Excel functions and concepts that will provide you with knowledge that can be used in other aspects of your life (personally, professionally, or academically).  The program is now being offered in a virtual platform, over the Internet, and it is designed for the beginner or novice computer user.  All that you need is the Microsoft Office Excel application and an Internet connection.  The goal of the program is to help individuals become more "efficient, effective and productive" users of technology. 


    Join me during the broadcast to learn more about this simple and easy-to-use tool that you create as the result of completing the MYPF Learning Program.

    Does my Child Support Cover Daycare Expenses?

    in Legal

    Illinois orders for child support do not cover every expense that your child will incur. How can that be? What if I have my checks garnished each and every time, why and how could I be expected to pay more? People have to be very careful about this and expectations need to be calibrated to be in tune with the Illinois Courts. This podcast will detail how the judges in Illinois go about making decisions into what expenses the non-custodial parent will have to make in addition to child support. Attorney Pequeno will describe what sorts of debts may be incurred and how the court determines amounts that have to be paid for this.

    Partners in Profit | Tracking Fixed Expenses and Revenue

    in Business

    Many Owner Operators put blinders on and focus on a pure cost per mile and forget that they converted their fixed expeneses into per mile expenses.  Far too many get caught in this trap and forget that a far greater portion of their expenses are fixed and not variable.

He will explain how he focused on key segments; expenses and revenue.


    Bill Hood credits this single tool as one of the most important for building Farm2Fleet Trucking that was recognized as one of the 20 Best Fleets to Drive For in 2015 by the TCA and Carriers Edge.

    TS Radio: Deborah Goodman/ NY Judge should not be on the bench

    in Current Events

    Hosted by Marti Oakley & Debbie Dahmer


    Join us this evening as we take a look at another judge in New York that has turned his courtroom into chaos as he forgets his own rulings or even what case he is working on.  Guess who pays the price for that?


    Deborah Goodman has been subject to the bizarre behavior of Judge Victor J. Alfieri Jr., for more than five years with no relief in sight. 


    "For his own Standards and Goals he repeatedly removed my case from the court calendar causing motions to be submitted in order to restore my case, which caused unnecessary legal expenses. On December 20, 2013 Honorable Judge Alfieri made a final decision to close my case because he did not like that the case was three years old. His only concern was my case bringing attention from those above him. He said, on the record:


    “Now without prejudice to either side, I am going to deny that motion. And I’ll tell you why. I’m going to deny it mostly because of a housekeeping detail. The case is three years old, which will bring note of people above me, as I’m only here by virtue of someone’s signature on an order. I’d like to stay. So I’m going to deny the motion to restore it to the calendar; however, I’m going to do that 30 days from today.”


    This was just one of numerous rulings issued by a judge who should not be on the bench.  Unfortunately, its all too common in probate and family courts across the country.
