What A Locksmith Company Taught Tommy Humphrey

I can imagine such a topic of discussion might bewilder you. After all, you are all used to me as an entrepreneur, working with venture capitals and investors struggling to create the best visibility for their brand; and I have worked with names like the Cambridge House, RBC Wealth Management or Mogo – so you know I am not kidding around. But I like to always remain open to new opportunities, and I never say no to an idea until I’ve check it out for real. So when I got a call from a locksmith company – completely by mistake – asking me to confirm the fact that their team could come to my office to change my locks the next day at 9 a.m., I have to admit I was surprised to see just how professional they sounded. Though the confusion was soon settled – the person who actually needed their Brooklyn team gave the wrong contact number via their online form – I started asking some questions. And I was again surprised by the things I found out.


Opportunities Come Out Of Nowhere

You just need to be there ready to grab them. I was eager to learn how the idea f a locksmith company that call sits own clients, offers a toll free contact number, along with online forms and customer support services could pull it off. So I checked up their site 247locksmithservice.com/areas/brooklyn-ny and learned that they are a fast and reliable locksmith company with a lot of experience in the field.


They only work with fully trained, bonded and insured experts and they provide a wide array of services: car, home, or office locksmith issues ranging from car replacement, lock rekey, panic bars, keypad locks, lock fixing, lock extraction, enhanced security solutions, and even 27/7 emergency services. They have nationwide coverage and they work closely with their clients – everything is transparent, time-efficient, and well-planned. Their secret? All I got to learn was that they spent a lot of time scanning their prospects and they came up with a way of always catering to their needs. Maybe that’s a business development angle most of us fail to see clearly when starting up – taking the time to really get to know our future clients.

Tips For Young Portfolio Investors

Young people rarely stop to think about investing for their retirement years; however, people who decide to treat their future seriously are going to have a lot to gain – starting with having sufficient funds to endure their bare necessities when turning old. For this, they need to show proof of being smart and disciplined, and learn a few things about different forms of portfolio investments. By self-educating yourself in the field of portfolio investing or by taking some specialized classes you too should be able to start your career as an investor. Just make sure you don’t procrastinate getting started and to begin as early as you can.

Join A 401 Retirement Plan

Start by talking to your employer and inquiring about the 401(k) retirement plan you could be joining. In case such a plan cannot be provided to you, come up with an Individual Retirement Account and start earmarking a certain percentage of your compensation as a result of a contribution you are going to pay on a monthly basis. Your savings will slowly accumulate and the same will go for your interest, which are going to compound without any taxes, in case you will not withdraw any of the money. Start young before you get married and your smaller personal expenses should make your saving a lot easier. This is also a good time to think about starting out your own business, and because every business needs a good communication system, we recommend you visit our website at addsource.com and check out our services. We can provide you with the sophisticated communication tools your new business needs at some highly convenient prices.     


Use Different Stocks

It is recommended to browse various markets and select different stocks on them; use index funds and make your investments in conservative stocks that can provide you with constant dividends. Opt for stocks that have an excellent growth potential on the long run and stocks that have high returns – but don’t buy a lot of these. Bonds that are rated AAA also make for good investments.

Cambridge House Live – WRIC 2012 Edition

This past Monday concluded the 2012 World Resource Investment Conference in Vancouver. The event was a big success given recent market turmoil. Turnout was strong (over 5000 investors) and high quality. As Keir Reynolds pointed out in his Mammoth Letter blog, difficult markets have only cut the wheat from the chaff, leaving the best of the best still standing – at their booths in this case – communicating advancements of commodities projects globally.

We were proud to bring back Cambridge House Live from the show floor, where producer/host Jonathan Roth interviewed many of the conference headliners, including Ross Beaty, Peter Schiff, Doug Casey, Frank Holmes, Rick Rule, David Morgan, Keith Schaefer, John Kaiser, Brent Cook and more. Those interviews are available on Youtube, and we suggest you watch all of them.

Here are a few to get you started:

Why You Should Attend The World Resource Investment Conference in Vancouver June 3-4, 2012

This Sunday and Monday: 200 commodities companies take on Facebook.

Dear Readers,

I’d like to take this opportunity to invite you to the World Resource Investment Conference this Sunday and Monday in Canada’s Vancouver Convention Centre (East).

(Watch the full 2 minute version here.)

Headlining the free event are financial entrepreneurs Peter Schiff, Doug CaseyRick Rule and Frank Holmes. The metals equities specialists join representatives from more than 200 natural resources companies and thousands of retail investors under one roof.

Benefits of attending the free EXHIBITION and presentations:

  • Learn exclusive wealth creation strategies from the world’s top experts;
  • Meet face to face with public company executives (many of whom are CEOs of natural resource companies trading at or below cash $$);
  • Forge new business relationships among geologists, engineers, brokers, bankers, promoters, media and more;
  • Grow your personal brand while having fun in the process.

Some of the top analysts in our sector will be on hand to answer questions including Brent Cook, the straight talking editor of Exploration Insights, Thom CalandraJohn KaiserEric CoffinLawrence RoulstonKeith SchaeferScott GibsonMickey Fulp and more (View the full roster here.)

Attendees will enjoy the political rhetoric sure to set fire to some ears … Catch Peter Schiff defending the 1% at Occupy Wall Street (Youtube link) … or my interview with author Doug Casey (Vimeo link) for a taste. There’s never a dull moment at any of Jeff Berwick‘s speeches, either.

As for me, I’ll be on the floor both days, and on stage at 4 pm on Monday with Josh Brown, the Reformed Broker from Stocktwits, taking cheap shots at the brokerage biz and anyone else who wants it. Bring your questions about the Facebook IPO, social media and Wall Street for Josh and be prepared to laugh or cry (or both).

After hours (show hours 7:30am – 6 pm both days) there’s a boat cruise on Sunday night and a fundraising dinner that honors the late newsletter writer, David Coffin, on Monday. All details available at CambridgeHouse.com.

I hope to see many of you there.
