Is ObamaCare Good For You And Your Business?

ObamaCare
ObamaCare Train Wreck

Suggestion: Listen to ” America The Beautiful” by Ray Charles while you read this…start video at bottom of page.

This post tonight is about a critical subject being decided upon during the month of September…

Is ObamaCare Good For You And Your Business?

This country is attempting to implement an original 2700 page Bill that was never read nor debated in the House or the Senate nor read by the President. This was a political concept which was never properly discussed or debated.

Can you imagine the Constitution of the United States being passed in such a careless manner? Is this how a great country is supposed to represent it’s people? Is this how we express our exceptionalism? It used to be my friend…

Or does Washington know best for everyone…and we do not dare question their opinions, beliefs, or decisions??? Are we to be led by an ideological party and narcissistic leader to “total transformation of our country” like cattle to slaughter?

Sorry my friend, this is not the way that I do business, either personally, politically, or spiritually!

Only Democrats voted for the Bill. No Republicans voted for the Bill. This is extreme proof that this is a partisan Bill. The day before passing the Bill the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi when asked what was in the Bill said…”We have to pass this Bill so that we can find out what is in it.”

This is the President’s signature presidential accomplishment and his first priority for the country was to get this Bill passed. The employment issues and economic issues took a back seat to ObamaCare. Obviously he wants to preserve the Bill at all costs, especially since it would be a serious threat to his presidency.

The reasons for the Bill are clearly political as the major purposes are to take resources from some people and provide those same resources to other people with government controlling the collection and redistribution. And the government gives a 30-40% haircut for the process of redistribution. Even with the planned implementation we will continue to have 30 million people uninsured…which was supposedly the reason for the bill to start. This is decisively a wealth redistribution bill which gives the government much more control over our personal information, our lives, our money, and our freedoms.

When the ObamaCare Bill was taken to the Supreme Court, it was declared legal only as a “tax” by one vote by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. This was a very creative decision that none of the other justices even considered, which to me makes it suspect.

This Bill takes away from our independence and freedoms. This Bill is a precursor to what the Democrats really want which is a single payer insurance system, non-competitive across states or between companies, and totally controlled by the Federal Government. This would put the government in control of your health, your information and your livelihood. This would be a total destruction of what has been the greatest medical system in the world.

60%-70% of the American population today say they do not like what they know about ObamaCare.

CBO estimates of ObamaCare were $940 billion. CBO now estimates costs to be double at $1.8 Trillion.

Many, many organizations have been given waivers out of ObamaCare including the Government, and the Unions are asking for their waiver.  Thousands of waivers have been granted…all favoritism to obtain votes.

Insurance costs were not supposed to increase. Since approval of the Bill insurance costs have increased 25% to 100% across the country. Insurers are withdrawing from states as they cannot maintain profitability.

Many doctors are withdrawing from the medical profession as they can no longer be profitable or practice medicine according to their ethical oaths. This will cause a decrease in the quality of medicine and increase costs even more.

The Federal Government is spending hundreds of millions of tax dollars on advertisement promoting ObamaCare.  After all of the publicity given ObamaCare to date you would think that people would like it and not have to be convinced.

Employers are limiting growth of their businesses to no more than 50 employees so as to avoid the penalties of ObamaCare.

Employers are reducing employees working hours to 30 hours or week to avoid penalties of ObamaCare.

The Cleveland Clinic, largest employer in Ohio, announced today they are slashing $330 million in cost reductions because of ObamaCare and will implement employee layoffs to effect these cost-reductions. This is occurring at hospitals across the country.

Home Depot is announced that due to costs of ObamaCare that 20,000 employees would be transferred to the Federal pools for insurance to deal with the impact of ObamaCare. This is commonplace across the country.

Insurance companies are withdrawing from the insurance industry or markets due to non-profitability.

Many more issues are arising from ObamaCare implementation every day.

Do you like ObamaCare for you and your business and do you want it to be implemented?

As a small business owner and individual I strongly oppose the implementation of ObamaCare for many reasons. I have very little confidence in the policies of this Administration and consider this one a major failure.

This Bill impacts 1/6 of our total economy and appears to be seriously affecting a large number of people.

I continue to look for the advantages and disadvantages and the negatives seem to far outweigh the positives.  If I could find a list of advantages of the program I would list them here now. I would welcome from you a list of the key advantages of ObamaCare to the American People.

I hear many people saying…I wish I could do something about stopping ObamaCare but I do not know what I can do.

I began a Blog called “The Conservative Blog” to have the opportunity to speak my political opinions about my concerns as to what is happening to our country. I much prefer to share my political opinions on that Blog, however, “The Road To Financial Independence Blog” is about business, our economy, how to be employed, how to get ahead, and tips and ideas on being more effective in business, and I consider that it is appropriate to write about this subject here.

To me the ObamaCare Bill is seriously impacting the economy, the growth of my business, the growth of individuals and businesses that I serve, as well as the overall welfare of our wonderful country, the United States of America.

I submit to you that as Americans, our rights to free speech are invaluable, and that it is in our best interests to let our voices be heard strongly in Washington during the coming days. I support you in your opinion whatever that may be…maybe not agree with it but will support the fact that you are entitled to your opinion.

If you were not pleased with our country’s recent imminent attacks on Syria, I hope that you will consider that the vote on ObamaCare is extremely important to you and I…especially during these days of September. Harry Reid  and Barack Obama do not want to hear our opinions and protests.

The backroom joke in Washington now is that the only “red line” that the President will stick to is his refusal to negotiate on key issues with the Congress and the Senate. Tell me, are President Putin and President Assad more important than the people of the United States? I hope that we can determine this in the coming days. These are extremely important times for our country.

I believe that the American People are the only ones that can make a non-partisan, non-political, objective consideration of the facts and see the potential destructive looming damage of ObamaCare…and that each of us should speak up now with our own opinions, therefore fulfilling our duties as citizens in a timely fashion. Your forefathers would be proud of you for speaking your peace. Will you contact Washington and let them hear from you?

I plan to be a part of the 10 million+ petition I just received a call on to be sent to Washington requesting that we defund ObamaCare. Will you be a part of this Petition?

It is time that we let our voices be heard Americans!

How much do you want to earn as income?

Jim Carey – How Wealthy People Laugh

n8beatsn8beats

What do you want to earn as income?   

Ok…I think Jim has it right…when you have money you enjoy life more! I love it!

So how much would you like to earn each year…for the next 20-40-50 years? What do you want to earn as income?

I don’t believe that your answer is that you want just enough to pay the bills!

I think your answer is going to be…more than I can spend…and not have to worry at the end of the month that I have enough to go around! That is my answer! We all spend at different rates…ok…so Dan, tell me how to earn more than I spend? Ok my friend…here is the answer.

Just as there can be an unlimited amount of spending…believe it or not there can be an unlimited amount of income! Oh really? Yes my friend. And if you will follow very closely  my 16 step response to making your 2013 very successful…you could wind up being very wealthy…no promises…it is up to you as to how you execute the plan my friend! So you want to know where the unlimited amount of income is right? Well it is not in a pot at the end of a rainbow. It comes from multiple income streams reliable companies.and investments. Repeat…it comes from multiple income streams from  reliable companies.and investments. Multiple income streams are the solution. In the investment industry this strategy is called diversification. The problem is where do you find the reliable companies and investments? Now, are you willing to use committed efforts and smarts to get the income streams growing?

If you meet these criteria…then your odds of achieving multiple streams of income…

1. Do you have a burning desire to succeed?
2. Are you willing to learn?
3. Are you willing to work hard?

Multiple streams of income can come from many sources however for purposes of this discussion I want to share with you how you can achieve multiple income streams.  Money is what you need to make you financially independent, time independent and with financial freedom for whatever you want. Developing multiple income streams with multiple sources of income is usually the best way to achieve this goal. Throughout this blog I am sharing in many posts several ways to generate income streams

I propose solutions that are needed by many individuals, families, small businesses, large businesses, small business owners, and to those who want to begin their own businesses.

7 Warning Signs That Say Consider A Career Change!

 

“7 Warning Signs That Say Consider A Career Change!”

5+ Years of Security?


To determine if you face these warning signs ask yourself the following questions…

1.  Does your current career provide you with necessary income for all your needs…if you stayed in that position for at least the next five years?

         a.  Your basic living needs…your shelter, transportation, clothing, utilities, insurances?

         b.  Does it provide for your and your family’s educational, recreational and vacation needs?

         c.   Does it provide for savings for important purchases and retirement?

2.  Do you have confidence that your career will provide stability and income growth to satisfy all of  these needs during the next five years?

3. Are you happy in what you are doing in your career?    What would you prefer to do?

4. Do you feel confident that your career will be available to you 5 years from now?

If you feel good about your answers to the above questions I commend you strongly. Even so one needs to face the reality that the average length of time that a person remains in the same job is about 2.7 years.

Consistent Good Decisions On Your Goals

And here is the good news…No matter what your personal goals for your income, your career, your future financial status…you can accomplish in this society whatever you want to accomplish…you have heard this many times.

I see the reality of accomplishment of whatever anyone wants every day.

In my opinion the solution is to use your determination and intelligence to find the proper employment solutions (and I emphasize multiple income streams as solutions) for you that provides the income, time and personal freedom that you want to enjoy. Is there effort? Yes! Is it difficult to find those multiple income streams that can satisfy your needs? Yes. What is great for one person may be the absolutely wrong solution for another. I do not suggest that one solution fits all. I do suggest that if you employ the proper strategies and research your alternatives properly that you can find solutions that will provide for your life’s needs.

——————————————————————————-

So What Options Should You Consider?

It is very challenging to be aware of all of the income producing opportunities that are available.  A person can invest more time and money than necessary in evaluating and participating in multiple opportunities to the extent that they invest a lot and earn very little. Many entrepreneurs wind up jumping from opportunity to opportunity because they did not take the time and talk with experienced people in business to discuss the questions they should ask before committing to a venture. Because of this very few people really make good incomes on the internet.

My information says that less than 3% of internet marketers truly make the incredible monthly incomes and up to 7% are just now reporting profitability. Does this alarm you? If it doesn’t it should. A word to the wise should be sufficient.

I firmly believe in multiple income streams which I call “income diversification”.  I do not want to rely upon one or two streams of income as I have found that no matter how good something may be, there are factors out of my control that can affect the performance of any income stream. So therefore I recommend building more than one income stream over time to avoid the risk of bad performance, the same as I recommended as a financial advisor to diversify your investments. Diversification in different classes of investments within the investment world is a sound strategy, and in my opinion, diversification can also be very effective for a personal income strategy.

I offer you an option for a 30-minute discussion with you about your income opportunity decisions. Believe it or not, most of my life has been about helping other people achieve their goals…I have found that by doing this that I am rewarded multi-fold.

If you are seriously interested in starting your own business…then email me on dannorris42@gmail.com or call me on 407-749-9395.

Does Your Financial Plan Rely On Buying Lottery Tickets?

Social Hour In London
London’s Pubs

Today’s post is on one of my favorite topics…

Does Your Financial Plan Rely On Buying Lottery Tickets?

Most everyone that I know nowadays is saying…I wish I had more money to manage…however where there is a will there is a way…and many are saying… I am making great progress every day towards my goal of financial independence…that time when I am in total control of my time and my lifestyle…and I have no financial concerns ever for the future other than properly managing my wealth.

Yesterday we saw the Minnesota gentleman Paul White who won the $86 Million (before taxes) as his third of the Powerball Jackpot…he kidded about a family gathering recently where he was identified as the one most likely to rely upon winning the lottery as being “his financial plan”. This gentleman and his family and friends (see video below) are one lucky group as the odds for winning a 6-ball Powerball Lottery are in the range of 1 in 15 million. If you like these odds to plan your future then go for it…and I wish you luck. I prefer to rely upon the philosophy of hard work, committed to goals, never give up approach to achieving lifelong dreams approach…how about you?

And that opens dialogue on my next post for a series of pragmatic, practical recommendation steps that can be very valuable in helping you to reach your goals. I am going to give these suggestions as steps on  “The Road To Financial Independence” that I have found to be really important. I am speaking as a layman, with a lot of personal and professional experience, to share with you financial experiences so that you can proceed to the next level of learning and professional assistance whenever your situation justifies that you do so.

At the outset I want to make it clear that I truly support and recommend professional “comprehensive financial planning” for anyone that wants to improve themselves financially. By professional “comprehensive financial planning” I mean with those financial advisors who are truly qualified and act in the best interests of their clients. At the same time I am very reluctant to recommend everyone who calls themselves a “financial advisor” or “investment advisor”. These terms are so misused and vague that to me it does not have real meaning. My recommendations do not include those who just want to work with your investment assets like stocks, bonds, or commodity investments like gold and silver. Financial decisions affect all aspects of our lives and for a professional to give advice on financial matters to an individual I firmly believe that any recommendations should be based on information that includes a full understanding of the individual’s goals and risks owning the assets. Investment advisors certainly have a place in the financial advisory community however I do not include these individuals as clients in my target readers.

If you are committed to achieving financial independence for you and those that you love, if you haven’t already done so, I encourage you to research the subject of “comprehensive financial planning” and to meet with three or more advisors to make a selection of whom you would most prefer to partner with to receive professional financial advice and guidance. Let them recommend your best actions and approaches on all of your key financial issues. I believe very strongly in the value of benefitting from professional services and “comprehensive financial planning” by an experienced qualified financial advisor. They can help you grow, manage and protect your assets much better with their professional knowledge.

So with this introduction to the first in a series of several financial recommendations…I know that not everyone will go out tomorrow and select a financial advisor for comprehensive financial planning however I want you to get started on the process… beginning with some of the most important initial steps. The first step I will feature in my next post is one of the key subjects of a comprehensive financial plan…that of a “Cash Reserve”.

In personal finance, cash reserves are primarily short-term, highly liquid investments that earn a low rate of return that individuals want to have quick access to…for purposes of  meeting short-term, emergency or opportunity funding needs. We will discuss how much is recommended, how to create your cash reserve, where it should be kept and why it is so very important to your financial well-being!

Concerned About the Welfare of Our People and Our Country

Protect Our Country7th MRA

Are you concerned about the welfare of our people and our country?

Anyone that knows me is very much aware that I love this country very much…as well as the wonderful people that populate the United States of America.

In a time when the “Military Draft” was in effect I volunteered to serve in the U.S. Army and served my two year commitment as a patriot.  My sacrifice was very minimum compared to that of many soldiers that I see returning from service…having lost several limbs and in some cases their ability to function as normal human beings for the rest of their lives.

And as I think about this tragedy then I hear about some 500,000 to 900,000 returning wounded soldiers who have had pending medical claims  for months and years which are overdue in processing by the Veterans Administration.  This gets very little media publicity and government attention towards resolution. This week the Army announced that the Walter Reed Army Hospital Warrior Cafeteria would be closed on certain hours and days which would require amputees to negotiate wheelchairs approximately 1/2 mile to receive any kind of food day or night, much less the same food as they enjoy today. Fortunately, due to public outcry the Army reversed this decision on the same day. Then we have the terrorist shooting massacre under trial classified as a workplace event. Due to this government decision, the victims are not entitled to receive hospitalization, care and other benefits they would receive if the event were classified as it really is…an event of war.  When we add the tragedy of Benghazi to this list, it seems that we have a total transformation of our military happening before our eyes. The leadership of our county have the opportunity to correct all of these mistakes.

It is for reasons of loving this country and being very concerned about the real status of at least 50-60 million people who are suffering financially, job-wise, emotionally and in many other ways now…that I feel that I must speak out and express my concerns and recommendations for improvement very clearly. I am a “conservative” politically…I believe in living according to the Constitution, with minimum government and minimum federal spending, effective and legitimate social programs, a balanced budget, and protection of our country from foreign invasion….as well as from internal invasion. Many of our countries societal principles have been destroyed for a variety of reasons and our country’s future is being gradually destroyed by many special interest groups.

Since I choose not to discuss these political views on this news publication, I elected this week to introduce my second publication called “The Conservative” which you can find at www.lawattorneylegal.com. I invite you to visit me there and participate with me if that is your choice. If not, then I respect your rights to your opinion not to do so. My position is that every day I watch on TV and listen on the radio to many points of view.  By so doing I feel that I have an understanding of many sides of an issue and why people think the way that they do. I invite you to read my point of view and enter into constructive conversation if you choose.

With this information I again invite you to join me on “The Conservative” at www.lawattorneylegal.com. I enjoy this “Dan Norris Blog” very much and will continue to post frequently. Again I encourage you to leave me messages on the “Leave A Reply” section below. If you enjoy any of this material please let me hear from you.

I invite you to come visit my new publication…“The Conservative”

Refreshing Your Content for Better Results

Laura Lee Sparks               March 19th, 2013

Your marketing materials are so important for reaching out to prospective clients. The time and effort that goes into creating the perfect web site or brochure can be intense, but the simple choice of words can play a pretty significant role in the number of folks who make it through the front door. We live in a time when content gets stagnant pretty quickly, though, so don’t forget to revisit your content and give it some tweaking from time to time.

Entrepreneurship Is The New Women’s Movement

Women are leaving the workforce in droves in favor of being at home. Not to be a homemaker, but as job-making entrepreneurs.

By Natalie MacNeil

A quiet revolution is taking shape right now among women. Unlike the Quiet Revolution that began in the 1970s which saw women leave the home and enter the workforce in droves, women today are leaving the workforce in droves in favor of being at home. But unlike generations of women before, these women are opting to work in the home not as homemakers—but as job-making entrepreneurs.

Women have been starting businesses at a higher rate than men for the last 20 years and tend to create home-based micro (less than 5 employees) and small businesses. Women will create over half of the 9.72 million new small business jobs expected to be created by 2018 and more and more are doing this from home offices across the country. It’s a surprising statistic, especially considering that women-owned businesses only created 16 percent of total U.S. jobs that existed in 2010.

A Wake-Up Call for Women Entrepreneurs

Elaine Pofeldt

        Elaine Pofeldt                      3/29/2013                               Contributor

I cover serial entrepreneurs and their ecosystem

New research by the loan broker Biz2Credit reveals some bad news about women-owned businesses: They have higher operating expenses, slimmer margins and lower credit scores than male-owned firms the same age. And they have loan approval rates that are 15% to 20% lower.

Calculating Financial Figures Video(Photo credit: Dave Dugdale)

Biz2Credit studied 14,000 businesses that sought funding through its online platform. Women make up about 29% of applicants on Biz2Credit.

Some of the differences are significant. The women-owned firms had 15% lower annual revenue, and operating expenses that are 21% higher.

These findings may not reflect all women-owned firms–after all, businesses seeking credit may need it because they have cash-flow problems–but they should not be ignored.

What explains the results? Rohit Arora, CEO of Biz2Credit, says that in his experience, many women business owners start out borrowing for their businesses on personal credit cards, instead of establishing credit in the name of their businesses. Result: They fail to build a great credit score for the business.

That has long-term consequences. If they later apply for a loan, their lower credit scores put them in a weaker position. Those who get loans may qualify for less-attractive interest rates. ”Banks are gender-blind, to a large extent,” he says.

Ty Tribble  – Posted on 09 August 2012.

Just got a note from David Wood about his company “Empower Network” getting shut down on Facebook. Now I’m sure Empower Network will be fine and if anyone can figure out a way around the problem, it’s the shirtless mad scientist, David Wood. The Empower news made me think about one of the biggest issues people face in the industry today… I rarely see the tried and true fundamentals (that haven’t changed since I started marketing online in 2003) being taught by anyone… Read more... ————————————————————————– I trust that you enjoyed these posts and their authors.

Do You Want To Sharpen Your Axe?

Sharpening Your Saw

As a smart, savvy business owner do you have all the tools that you need to be effective?

Could you improve your business effectiveness in any way or are you at the top of your game? Do you now have everything that you need to be effective so you don’t have to keep your eyes, ears and mind open to anything that could make you more cost-effective, reduce your risks and improve your profitability? Be honest with yourself now.

“Do you want to sharpen your axe” as Abraham Lincoln recommends?

In my experience owning and working with small businesses I have found that qualified attorneys for many different legal needs are vital to the success of a small business.

And just as important as the need for competent attorneys is the affordability of their services whenever you need their advice. Most small businesses cannot afford to pay $200-$300 per hour for attorneys services.

As a result many business owners will try to handle the issues themselves so as to avoid the costs. And what happens if they need representation in a suit filed against them? Can the business handle such costs?

To help you solve this dilemma, let me show you how you can have most of your necessary legal services fulfilled by qualified, experienced attorneys in all fields of law…with a cost of $50-$100 per month on an ongoing basis. More than 35,000 small businesses now take advantage of these services.

If you would like to know more about how you can access these services across the United States and Canada, just send me an email to dannorris42@gmail.com or call me on 407-749-9395.

I look forward to hearing from you
