Money often leaves ones pockets….sometimes at an alarming rate! (not good) When you can keep money in your pocket….you have money. (this is good) When you can put MORE money in your pocket….you have more money. (this is very good!)   So…what would you say to an investment tool that that boasts a risk free 50% return?!?!?! It’s a bit off the conventional “investment strategy” path…but it is definitely money in your pocket risk free….and not rocket science either….check it!   http://www.pbs.org/newshour/businessdesk/2013/06/this-investment-fits-obamas-en.html

“The One Safe Investment and Why You Never Hear About It From Financial Advisors”

When I was a kid…(and no im not that old)….i had a savings account that earned (that’s right “earned”) 8.25%. The banking industry did away with that and I’m sure they’d say it was for our own good. So now if we need liquid cash we must borrow it….no dipping into the savings.

This article features a different way to think about investments and earnings that seems to make sense but is very different from our current way of thinking…what do you think? Fuzzy math, fact or fiction….?

Studio III architects presents Hero Wednesday

The soaring ideals, convictions and passion of youth….we all leave our esteemed academic vacuums only to meet the truth of the professional world.  This truth would be the gulf between theory and practice….that school was an effort to teach you to think and motivate for the loftiest goals possible…to do something great for this world, to make a difference….and then you meet the reality of business and start to grind out a career. Rock star designers right out of school do exist and Jessica Walsh is one of very few who has proven it’s not just a fairy tale.

Lower Hudson Valley Historic Window Replacement

A New York State lower Hudson River Valley historic window & door replacement project (in progress.)
Historically authentic replication of windows for this 1780 stone house involved researching the construction of Dutch and Scottish style masonry openings, which were determined by the limited sizes of glass available in this era.
