Amazed How Seamless Virtual Became Reality! … A Cell Phone Comparison

Do you remember your first experience with a Cell Phone ?

Not talking to the youngsters here – haha – you guys should read what happened though!

At first someone else had a cell phone, and they were likely seen as braggers or show offs….mobile-phone-246906__480

Slowly (over years) the stigma subsided and the cost of a cell phone began dropping with incremental speed of use and additional features.

Do you know anyone who does not have a cell phone? Probably Not

Virtual Was Pushed On Us and We Did Just Fine

This week on a Quarterly Earnings Call, a publicly traded company that is directly in the middle of Virtual said…

“In Two Months Over Two Years of Integration in Virtual Just Occurred”

Isn’t that pretty cool!

We should all pat ourselves on the back!

Only thing needed is an internet connection …  most phones now double as Hotspot … trouble easily averted

Stigma is Gone on Virtual meetings and get together’s …

Countless talk by tons of Smaller offices …

Less Travel Expense …

Yea, maybe a bit more impersonal …

Nothing will ever replace Face To Face, a nice hug or handshake !!

Given the circumstances … nice welcomed pivot!

Have a Great “Virtual Embraced” Day!

Cell Phone Pricing Wars Means Money In Your Pocket

This months financial planning tip came by accident from our own personal experience. Earlier this year the big two cell phone carriers commenced in a pricing war. Our discovery, originally from an investor standpoint, soon turned consumer. After multiple confirmations other than just ourselves, we feel certain we are on to something.Price War

The trick of this discovery is  you must log into your carrier and review your current plan. So far by pointing this out we have helped with several thousand dollars of savings.  Next time you pay your bill, take 30 extra seconds and click on your current plan, you may find significant saving are available.

Taxes – The Toughest Season in A Decade

This years taxes are the perfect storm for the following reasons.

  1. Tax payer relief act has sunset, diminishing many relief items.
  2. Phase Outs (restrictions of tax write-offs) are making for higher taxes due.
  3. AMT (alternative minimum tax) is making it’s presence known.
  4. Basis reconciliation is still troubling.Income Tax

This year, do not feel bad if your taxes are greater than years past and it is taking longer. The entire financial community has been slowed by this year’s tax season.

Market and Economic update

As mentioned in our cover letter and Q 2 2014 Newsletter, both on the presses and cyber ramp currently, the capital markets have gone no where so far this year. Bonds, the lumbering giants of safety have been the real winner in March as well as through the first quarter of the year.

Spring Break Hump Day … Money Saving Cell Phone Tip

Ok…so I couldn’t leave the keyboard alone for the spring break week, but the writings are fun and fortunately this is never work to me. Yesterday I even had a lengthy interview with a reporter from ABC News, again a fun work related event, that if printed, I will let you know. Hope you enjoy the following “light” post from afar on Hump Day of Spring Break!

AT&T Wireless threw the official first punch by a wireless giant several weeks ago. Now with other wireless carriers (Verizon) following, you may find extra dollars in your pocket, if you request a change.

Cell Phone Price Wars = SavingsPrice War

Recently AT&T (my carrier) announced about a 33% decrease in some base plan rates.

Here is the Trick:

In order to have my personal bill lowered, I needed to log into my account on-line and choose the new plan pricing option. While not complicated, it did take action by myself to complete the transaction.

As an investor, this lower price is not always great due to the pressures on margins and the possible commoditization of services, however as a consumer this is a nice break.

Check it out….hopefully you will have the same savings! Every penny counts!

Have a Great Day!
