Now, anyone can become a fearless investor in just a few minutes!

PlanPrep’s new risk comfort number system blends the latest in technological advances with Burt Williamson’s extensive investment management experience. It helps people see how much risk they are willing to take with their money in comparison to how much they are actually taking. And, they can find out in a few minutes from their smartphone, tablet or computer.

“Our new service, Your Comfort Number, is intended to change people from being fearful investors that might make rash, short-term investment decisions based on emotion reactions, to fearless investors who make great decisions,” said Burt Williamson, founder of PlanPrep, LLC. “It helps people find their comfort zone for investment risk with a number from 1 to 99.

It’s just like a number for how soft or firm they want their mattress to be. This is not like the labels of conservative, moderate or aggressive. It’s pinpointed.”

Just mention this ad to get 50% off: network setup, Email setup, Computer maintenance, Secure Backups, Network Security audit, Wireless internet, Printer setup, Server configuration, Group Policy settings, Active Directory setup, Domain controller setup, Firewall setup, Secure file backup and sync, Bitlocker encryption setup, Amazon S3 setup, Amazon EC2 setup, and Company moves.

Art Gone Wild

Have you ever said, “I’m not artistic; I can’t draw a stick figure”?  I have good news for you: stick figures are not the yard stick for art.  The world is full of opportunities to “do” art.  This month is National Wilderness Month (celebrating the 54th anniversary of the Wilderness Act), and there is such a thing as Earth Art or Land Art which allows all of us to be creative.  You can take a trowel and carve circles in the dirt and make art.

Earth Art began in the United States in the 1960s as a rejection of the traditional notion of confined galleries and museums where “true art” could be bought and sold and displayed.  It was an embrace of nature and a celebration of found objects as art and beauty.  The very transient nature of the designs were part of the art’s essence.

Because this creative expression couldn’t easily be displayed in galleries, it opened the experience to everyone.  Anywhere there were rocks or leaves a person could arrange art.  And this frees us all to be artists!  In my hallway by the front door, I have a large bowl with stones I’ve collected, and my grandchildren can’t resist stacking them into towers.  A farmer in Simi Valley can’t help but plow a happy face into his hillside next to the freeway.  I arrange smooth river rocks to flow between my flower beds.  On hikes through the hills, there are ledges of stacked stones inviting a peaceful thought.  All of these actions spring from our creative center.  This urge to assemble or organize or declare our presence is innate; it is the desire to proclaim who we are and that life matters and is good.

 

So, have fun with nature and rocks and dirt; leave your fingerprint on your surroundings and know that you are a creative and artistic soul (and forget about drawing a good stick figure).

Some messages from our group...

What makes the Conejo Valley special, unique or interesting?

I like to call Thousand Oaks "the biggest little town in the country." Even though its size is well over 100,000 residents, it still has a small town feel. You are liable to see someone you know every time you go out. I also like the fact that it has protected itself from the blight that has ruined so many other communities in Southern California by restricting things such as billboards, building structure and height, paid parking lots, and corner strip malls.
