Greetings Friends of HTFC:

Welcome to TIPS Messages E-zine!
Doses of usable TIPS for home & living - business & career success!

Q - How Do I Look At Houses!

A - The way we live in our homes is the same way we look at houses we may consider buying. A house is a commodity, an investment financially and mentally, a neighboring of families and a place to call home.

**New Listing**
Spacious 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath townhome - spiral staircase & garage newly built in historic West End on Lucile Avenue, contact me to tour this beautiful home.

Now, if you are a first timer in the housing market ($8,000 tax credit available); or if you decide to move up/or change your zip code ($6,500 tax credit available); I would appreciate the opportunity to help you through honesty, hard work, and a "let's make this happen attitude".

Entrepreneurial Life Lessons

Blastoff is the fun, easy, and free way to do everything you already do on the web, only better. Shop, read your email, play games, listen to music, watch videos, plan a vacation, network with friends, track your investments, and catch up on the latest news and gossip. You get the idea. Blastoff brings all of this and more right to your fingertips from a convenient, fully customizable homepage.

If that wasn’t good enough, Blastoff propels the online experience into hyper-drive by offering a unique internet shopping platform that actually pays its members for every purchase made through their Blastoff accounts. Savvy shoppers already know that online retail provides some of the best pricing and promotions around, including many transactions that are tax-free. Well, Blastoff combines those same great deals with cash-back bonuses of up to 15% on each purchase.

While the advent of social networking sites is a great way to prove your cyber-worth, none of them actually reward you for being a social butterfly. With Blastoff, every time any of your friends shop online through their own Blastoff accounts, you get paid a commission on that sale. If you need an excuse to network, Blastoff is it...

Your $$$ Does Matter

The E-Bay e-mail was urgent. "Your account has been compromised. In order to secure your E-Bay account we're asking you to verify your password and change it so that you can continue to enjoy E-Bay services. If you do not respond, your account will be blocked. Please click on the link in this e-mail and follow the instructions".

You may say "Yikes! I don't want my E-Bay privileges cancelled! How am I going to get rid of all those porcelain Elvis coasters I've been picking up at garage sales?!"

In our case all this was no problem. We have never bought or sold anything on E-Bay. We didn't have an account. We clicked the delete button - there were FIVE simultaneous messages like this, which in itself gave away the spam fraud.Oh, incidentally, we also don't have any Elvis costers!

From *The Silent Crime - What You Need to Know About Identity Theft

Upon receiving an e-mail requesting information to update my information, I immediately started to click the link, then realized "this is not my bank". This made me realize how quickly any of us can become a victim to Identity Theft; read this... to get the protection needed for yourself and your family or call me at 404-840-9420.

TR's Corner

Some things in life cannot wait, we must
make IT happen!
If your IT is a new home, there may never be a better time than now to get involved in the housing arena!

Yes, the realty market continues to correct itself, something that had to happen. But you know, we all must live somewhere, and with all the housing incentives including the tax credits; why not in your own home.

Home Sweet Home is still The American Dream!

Thanks for reading TIPS Messages Ezine...I hope it has given you some food for thought. I'm looking to help 7 new families home for the holidays and hope you or someone you know may be one of the families I can work with to Make IT Happen...
