Quote I am pondering
“I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.”
― Louisa May Alcott
This is such a great quote as it teaches us that she is learning how to handle hardships as she goes through them. In other words, take action and get started in whatever endeavor you desire. Don’t worry that you don’t know enough because you can always learn as you go.
Goal setting tools for children
Since we discussed the kids’ business opportunities and the Success magazine’s Trade Secrets article a couple weeks ago, we wanted to share this neat article we came across on goal setting with your kids. So often we talk about goal setting for ourselves and our businesses and often forget that we had to learn about goal setting in adulthood. Exposing your children early on to planning out their lives and what they want can make it so much easier when they are older.
Money saving challenges can make summer vacation even sunnier
As we start to think about trips we have planned this summer, we are also thinking about ways to start saving now. Better hotel rooms, more spending money, and extra excursions are always welcome but of course they also mean more money! Check out this 52-Week Money Challenge that provides an extremely simple way to save extra cash that won’t break the back. We also liked these 81 Ways to Save for Vacation. The earlier you think about saving, the more you’ll appreciate the extra fun you get to have in the sun!
How to get a free copy of an OSHA report if you were injured in a refinery accident
Many workers don’t know that they are entitled to a copy of the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) report after a refinery accident, if one was created. Any time there is reason to believe that an employer was not following OSHA safety standards or there was a serious hazard that caused the injuries – which is almost always the case in refinery accidents since they tend to be so serious – a report is filed. Unfortunately, obtaining this report can be difficult and time-consuming, which is why we offer to obtain the report for free for anyone who was seriously injured on the job. Just call us and give us background info on the accident and we can set up a consultation, explain all of your legal rights, and work to get you the report as soon as it is available.
Best place to get furniture that will last for decades
We recently wrote in our newsletter about Mattress Mack from Gallery Furniture and how he is such a staple in the Houston community when it comes to giving back and taking care of those in need. You may even remember how he opened the doors to his furniture stores to give people displaced by Hurricane Harvey a place to stay. I would buy from him for these reasons alone, but I am here to tell you that the office furniture that I bought from him more than 20 years ago still looks brand new. There are multiple locations around Houston so check out Galley Furniture’s website to find the one closest to you and even shop online.
