We all make purchases in life. Whether it’s groceries, home supplies, entertainment, or leisure, we all shop. One of the best ways to save money is by purchasing gift cards at a discount. The global gift card market size was valued at $615 billion in 2019 (that’s right, billion with a B). That means that there is a lot of unused gift cards out there. Whether people didn’t get a chance to use them or no longer need them, many people with gift cards are not using them and would instead trade that in for cash.

What is Compound Interest? ✏️

Compound interest is simply the interest added to the principal amount of money that is invested or borrowed. The principal amount and the initial interest earned yield more interest over time, resulting in a compound effect. It is making interest from interest, which will eventually lead to enormous growth in interest — and subsequently, wealth. Compound interest benefits the investor, who will continue to earn money as long as their investment is not tampered with.

Just when you think one social platform “did it all,” a new one comes out of nowhere — First MySpace, then Facebook, then Twitter, then Instagram, then Snapchat, and now TikTok. Businesses don’t have the time to try to grow a following or community on every single one, so how should you decide where to focus?

My job is to convince you that your company should start and grow a Facebook group no matter what business you are in.

My first home is in a quiet suburban neighborhood, the perfect starter home for a growing family. I was initially renting half of it out and living in the other part. My tenant is fantastic, but the end of the lease was quickly approaching. I intended to remain in the same situation for a few more years until my tenant told me she was interested in taking over the entire home. I started to calculate…
