Want some great ideas on where to promote your posts, here you go! Mike does a great job outlining the process in very simple steps. It may take you some time to set them all up, but after that it won't take much time. Just don't try and set them all up at once :-)

Startup & Life Tips From Warren Buffet

Startup & Life Tips From Warren Buffet | Christopher J. Lawrence, Independent Broker | Scoop.it

There are reasons other than sheer brillance Warren Buffet has way more money than most. He lives by a strict code and these tips share some of that code. Great #startup and life tips. 

My favorites are learning to spend only AFTER saving (hard lesson that one) and the tip about honesty being expensive so don't expect it from "cheap people". I suspect Warren means "cheap" in much more than the monetary sense.

If you own jewelry and have no use for it, you can donate to charity and enjoy a fair market tax deduction. Jewelry donations range from broken gold necklaces and jewelry missing gemstones to very rare and hard to come by fine or estate jewelry. You will receive the absolute maximum tax deduction for your generous jewelry donation. http://www.collectibleswithcauses.org/
