Financial Literacy and Occupy Vancouver

It’s sad news to see Occupy Vancouver set up a tent city right in the middle of downtownVancouver. We understand that they are feeling the pinch of the world’s financial state and most likely the hardship of their own financial status. Many of them are homeless; some of them are unemployed, some are young and without much experience, and some are very poor and don’t know how to help their own situation. Since we are a business and financial services company, we feel that being educated about your finances helps empower good decisions.

November is Financial Literacy Month!

Being able to make good financial decisions keeps us fed, clothed, and housed. Without this knowledge, we will be out on the street, and our businesses will fail – nobody wants to be homeless or in debt. Coming from a business services point of view, we’re excited about the educational workshops such as the online interactive tool to learn about mortgages at www.mortgageconsumer.ca, put on by the Canadian Association of Accredited Mortgage Professionals (CAAMP).

Online Stores – Get Your Piece of the Pie!

E-stores are popping up all over the place. You can purchase anything online, from shoes and clothes, to electronics, and even foodstuffs! FACETS Business Solutions has a great idea for those local small and medium businesses who have stores and already sell products; get yourself an online store, as a webpage on your website.
