You Can Afford a New Kitchen With Chocolate Bit-Coin

With the world turned on its head, and everything that we used to count on collapsing like a failed chocolate souffle, I’ve devised a new monetary system called “chocolate bit-coin”. Easily baked by yourself using our simple, “chocolate bit-coin” system, that comes with our ultra-secret, proprietary recipe, you can now bake your own “chocolate bit-coin” and use it for purchases at remodeling establishments that accept such type of cookto-currency. All for only $5,000!

Whether you’re walking down the street, passing by a showroom, or in a “home center” strolling the isles, you can’t help but notice the stunning new kitchens on display. You work hard. You’re a good person. If anyone deserves a new kitchen, it’s you! But how could you possibly afford such luxury? It’s easy! Just send us $10,000 for your very own “chocolate bit-coin” baking kit (and proprietary recipe) and pretty soon you’ll have enough “chocolate bit-coin” to afford anything you desire.

Picture the pleasant vision of standing in your new kitchen, effortlessly preparing a gourmet meal instead of looking out from the poor house. Rather than walking on, regrettably abandoning the momentary dream of what you truly deserve, act now. Just send us $15,000 for your personal money-making machine.

But if you’re not into risk-taking and you’re still inspired by those beautiful displays, there are steps to follow that can lead to a new kitchen without sacrificing everything you hold dear. The most important of these steps is to determine the budget that you are comfortable with, AND THEN STICKING TO IT! Today, there are kitchen solutions including new cabinets or refacing, as well as counter tops and appliances that will fit into almost any budget. The trick is to figure out what your budget really is, and then finding what options that will fit within that figure.

While determining your budget, it’s a good time to do your homework. Make one list of what you absolutely must have in your future kitchen and another “wish list” of things you’d like, but really could live without if necessary. Browse websites like houzz and pinterest and when you see something that interests you, save it into a folder so that you can show it to your designer. It’s always easier and safer to show someone a picture rather than trying to explain it, leaving less chance for misinterpretation of what you had in mind.

With budget in hand, it’s time to visit with a kitchen designer, who will work with you to create your “Dream Kitchen”, at a price that you can afford. They will review your ideas and then transform them into a working design. Don’t be afraid to share your budget with your designer. Whether your proposed expenditure is $5,000 or $100,000, if the designer does not know this, chances are their plan will not meet your expectations and you’ll have wasted both your time and theirs.

A creative designer, whom you’ve shared your “wish list” and other desires, should be able to create an affordable, functional, and stunning new kitchen, just for you. Unless money is not an object you may have to compromise here and there, but the end result will be something that you can not only afford, but be proud of as well.

Or, if you’re ready to take the plunge and invest in our $20,000 “chocolate bit-con” (whoops, that’s bit-coin) baking kit just send us $25,000 and you too could be baking your very own “chocolate bit-coin”, the currency of the future.

The Best Way to Begin Coin Collecting

The best way to begin coin collecting is by learning all you can about it. Whatever it was that got you interested has done you a favor. Coin collecting is a hobby that can grab you by the tail and never let go. But that is a good thing. Building a coin collection can be a bit like accumulating bookmarks while surfing the Internet. One great find leads to another!

Ask a coin collector how he got started in the hobby and you will likely be told about —
receiving coins from an older relative, or —
rediscovering the pocket change from a recent foreign vacation, or —
finding old coins in a forgotten dresser drawer, or —
hearing a news story about a fabulous price paid for a rare coin at auction, or —
locating a barely definable old coin with a metal detector in the backyard, or —
seeing a close-up shot of a stack of twenty dollar gold pieces on a high stakes poker table in a Western movie, or —
reading about the recovery of a centuries old cargo of silver coins from a Spanish treasure galleon, or —
finding an odd coin on the sidewalk, under the bed, or lodged deep within the spicy confines of a macho-combo burrito. (It could happen.)

Whatever the circumstances, I challenge you to find a serious coin collector who cannot recall why and how he got hooked on building a collection of meaningful coins.

Meaningful coins?

The ones worth big bucks, right?

Sure. If you are into coins strictly for their market value, then yes, high value coins are where you want to be. (But be sure and learn how to grade coins and gain some knowledge about what makes one coin worth more than another.)

On the other hand, many collectors are just as passionate about their coins for other reasons, not quantifiable in the coin market. Coins are so often tokens of curiosity about people, places, and historical events.

Every coin has a story. Every coin collection is as well a collection of these stories. Take your cue from these stories as a direction for your collecting.

The longer you collect, the more you will learn. The more you learn the more meaningful will be your collection. And it will lead you down some fascinating paths.

When an old family friend gave me a tattered old bill from his wallet, it expanded my interest in coins to include paper money. My friend had carried this note for years as a familiar oddity — a conversation piece perhaps. Only recently I have discovered that this old Confederate dollar bill was, in fact, a counterfeit. But, of course, there was more to the story. That is on my website at [http://www.valuable-coin-stories.com/old-paper-money.html]

But, he would be the first to say that his greatest pleasure with coins has been the hooks they have to history and other areas of learning. Dave says that he can never quite get beyond the feeling that, if any of his coins could talk, the stories would be priceless!

App Fog Genius Lessons From A Successful Entrepreneur

App Fog Business Startup Lessons from a Lucrative Entrepreneur

Lucas Carlson is a successful startup entrepreneur. When he first started however, he made a few bad choices that almost cost him big time.

Don’t Skip Business Setup Planning

At first he was just programming an idea for App Fog. He didn’t have a landing page, any bank account, brain storming ideas, or thinking about the ideal customers. Skipping key steps really put him back for years. He would program for weeks, and then finish the app idea. Then program for weeks and finish the idea. He couldn’t get people interested in the idea that was created.

Creating a Landing Page

Finally, he decided to create a landing page one night when he was too tired to sleep or even tell his wife about the programming idea. The app idea was PHP Fog. He tried putting it up on a site before that called Heroku.com. He registered the PHP Fog website and just simply wrote “it’s like Heroku for PHP”. Heroku’s site only allowed for Rudy on Rails applications so he couldn’t put the applications on that site.

Living the Dream

The next morning he woke up and had eight hundred people on his website! He didn’t market it anywhere else. All he did was put one link on Hacker News network. Also, he described the website in more depth. It turned out that the idea was a “hair on fire” idea without even the creation of the project! This gave him assurance that if the effort is put in, the results will be desired. After programming for two weeks. he just only had a prototype and the traffic went from 800 to 4,000 unique visitors per day!

Hair on Fire Problem Equals Confidence

He had identified a “hair on fire” problem. This gave him confidence to program the solution. This changed his life forever! He realized the difference between having a problem that people know they have versus the problems that people don’t know they have. PHP Fog wound up being AppFog. It raised $10 billion dollars and was later bought out.

No Marketing Expenses

He didn’t spend a dime on marketing! It wasn’t an accident. People already wanted the idea and were looking for it. He learned that he could find what people already wanted and then program an application based on what they wanted. He wasn’t taking a “shot in the dark” anymore.

Don’t be Intimidated

Creating a landing page or micro-website is very scary for most people. They don’t want to know if others like their great idea or not. There is a denial psychological part to this way of thinking. It can be self-defeating to the creation of an idea. They will think “Well I believe in the idea so much, that I don’t care what other people think about it”. This philosophy will kill a great idea. Put your “right foot first” and see what people need.
