Getting your financial house in order can feel overwhelming. Even when you know the things you need to do (stay out of debt and save money), but how do you do them? How do you prioritize? If you are the type of person who tends to get paralyzed by these choices, then rather than trying to optimize how you organize your finances, choose any one or more of the things below to work on.
Pay Off Debt
If you are not in debt, stay out of it, except for buying a home and getting an education. If you’re in debt, you need to work on paying it off. Doing so aggressively, if possible, is generally best, but you can also work on paying off debt while you aim for other financial goals. First, ensure your payments are high enough to account for interest rates.

You should know that in one of his first public appearances, after having resigned as Governor for New York State, Andrew Cuomo will be visiting the South Bronx. His visit to the Bronx is to meet with Members of “The New York Hispanic Clergy Organization”, which I preside over.
As you know, last summer Governor Cuomo resigned, when he was accused and practically abandoned by all his friends, politicians, and community groups, whom he had helped in the past. These so-called friends, and groups that were all too happy to kiss his ring, joined the “cancel culture” environment, that plaques us all, without due process, they washed their hands with a dismissive attitude, sending the message “Crucify him, crucify him”.
Several courts and judges have dismissed the allegations of “sexual harassment” against Governor Cuomo. With this episode behind him, Governor Cuomo has begun to visit and make public appearances by visiting different faith-based organizations and community groups.
It is very important for you to know that Governor Cuomo’s first public visit was to “God’s Battalion of Prayer Temple” in East Flatbush, Brooklyn on Sunday March 06, 2022. His next planned visit is to the “New York Hispanic Clergy Organization” in the South Bronx.
You should also know that in a recent poll, Governor Cuomo, without being a candidate nor having announced his political aspirations, has polled with just four (4) points behind Governor Kathy Hochul.
As you know, Governor Hochul was a friend and she was handpicked by Cuomo to be his Lieutenant Governor. However, she was among one of the first to throw him under the bus, in the midst of the allegations, launched against him.
I imagine that those four (4) points will evaporate very soon and Governor Hochul will have to consider asking Governor Cuomo for his support, if she wishes to be officially elected by the people to the governorship.
As President of the “New York Hispanic Clergy Organization”, I am looking forward to hosting Governor Cuomo on Thursday, March 17, 2022. We welcome him to the South…

Targeting sales is the goal of any business. Read this article to learn four essential techniques that every business owner should know to double their sales.
One way for any business to reach its full potential is to have multiple strategies that are all directed toward increasing customers and sales. But simply incorporating various strategies without fully understanding them can cost your business money. Thus, before applying a certain technique to your business, you must have a clear understanding of the technique’s pros and cons and whether it will suit your business.
Fortunately, there are plenty of techniques to double your sales, regardless of your budget. As a start, get to know these four common techniques that are known to significantly enhance sales:
- Establish a people-centric sales team
Before inspiring your team about the need to increase your sales, you must first have a customer-centric company culture. This type of culture means that each team member should approach your offering from a feature or benefit perspective. By doing so, they will be well versed on how your products or services can add value to your customers.
Today’s consumers increasingly choose to do business with companies who they feel really understand their pain points. As such, it is becoming more important for sales leaders to prioritize sales as a problem-solving approach. In other words, pose your solution to customers to entice them to buy from you. For companies engaged in the field service industry who have to quote for jobs before winning them, simple things like this invoice template can really help to cut down on admin time and facilitate more jobs being accepted.
- Have a marketing plan
Now that you have a customer-centric brand, the next technique to double your sales involves having a marketing plan. A strong…

The 2021 NFL season was another that New York Giants fans want to forget quickly. Their beloved Giants went 4-13, finished bottom of the NFC East, and missed out on the playoffs for the fifth consecutive season. The team is a far cry from the 2011 Giants that defeated the New England Patriots 21-17 at Super Bowl XLVI, the Giants’ fourth Super Bowl victory. The latest odds from sites offering sports betting online suggest it will be a similar story during 2022, but things could be different for Giants fans during the upcoming campaign; here is why.
An Easier Than Usual Schedule
With the fixtures for the 2022 NFL regular season decided, long-suffering New York Giants fans should be delighted to know their team has, on paper, the third-easiest schedule across the entire league. It does not help that NFC East rivals the Washington Commanders and Philadelphia Eagles have similarly easier schedules but facing supposedly lesser opposition should take some pressure off the team.
A New Coach Equals a Fresh Start and New Ideas
The Giants sacked their head coach and front office staff after last season’s disappointment and brought in Buffalo duo Joe Schoen as the GM and Brian Daboll as the head coach. They are the Giants’ third general manager and fifth head coach in the past eight years. Never has an NFL team needed some stability more than the…
