"COLUMBUS OHIO MAN HELPS HIS COMMUNITY SAVE MONEY ON HOUSEHOLD EXPENSES." Thrift Web Page Shows How Simple Saving Can Be In The Hardest of Economies

For Immediate Release

After Derek Bliedung had many personal hardships from divorce, unexpected job loss, and even a law suit. He had two choices to just give up and file bankruptcy, or keep on fighting and find a better way.  He chose the better way, and after many hours of researching online he found there was a great deal of ways to save money on household items. Such as alternatives to cable or satellite television, less expansive cell phone service, alternative to land line phones. As well, taking advantage of supermarket fuel discounts, shopping at discounted supermarkets and clothing stores. This prompted Derek Bliedung founder and head coach to start the his own web site called ColumbusFinancialCoach.com to give away free advise and affordable coaching service to help those in need.

Mr. Bliedung was spending $135 per month for digital cable, phone, and Internet. When he replaced the cable TV with a used Tivo Premier he purchase off ebay and using the off the air signal with amplified antenna he purchase from TigerDirect. As well he purchased Magic Jack Plus to replace his land line phone. The total cost for these purchases was $169.00 with a yearly saving of $1,020, which is a net profit of $851.

Another of his recent saving came from moving his home owners and auto insurance to another carrier and this banked him another $852.00 per year in savings. Derek explains that he also took his cell phone on the large carries to Net10 at $15 per month for 200 roll over minutes which saved he another $360 per year in savings. Derek Bliedung, talked about how just this year his wife need a expensive repair on her car and he was able to save $370 by simple finding  the part online and having his mechanic install this part.

Derek Bliedung estimates that he saves another $348.60 per year in savings by buying gift cards and shopping for fuel rewards at his local supermarket. He omits he need to keep better track of the items purchased with coupons such as the entertainment.com , livingsocial, groupon, Faveroo.com,  http://deals.entertainment.com, andeversave. Derek also reminds all of his followers to take his advice remember that there is great savings all around us just keep your eyes peeled and your ears open to find all the savings.

The Columbus Financial Coach was founded in 2011, to help the local and national working class families, a way to save money and to improve their financial outlook in life by reinvesting the saving into investments or purchasing additional insurance products to insure that current and future financial needs will be well meet.

How to find the cheapest Auto & Home Insurance?

There is no thing as the cheapest car insurance company. You have to compare cost from many companies. But there is 2 type of P and C insurance companies the one that can only sell their insurance such as All-State, Farmers, State Farm, ect (captive agents). And the P and c; non-captive agents compare are able to sell many different insurance companies product. In the scene they are shopping around for the best rate for you.

P and C insurance prices are based on lets call the target market. Some insurance companies want high risk people, others want very low risk people, others are some where in the middle. Some insurance companies prefer underwriting policy in a rural clients, some like urban clients. It all depends on so many factors that you have to shop around. But, the internet makes it easier to do this. You can find insurance search engines that will find insurance companies you may never of heard of before. But in fact there is hundreds of ways to search insurance compared to the old fashion pull out the yellow pages and call every company in the yellow pages.

Great Ways to Save on Groceries & Gas


Grocery items

The best low priced grocery store is Aldi and next to that is would be Save a lot. My personal strategies are going to one of these stores first, and then go to another grocery store for the rest of your shopping needs.

Take advantage of Kroger's and Giant Eagle's fuel points programs if you need to fill up your car on a regular basis. Like the commercial says you can buy gift cards and use them like cash. If you need to buy a gift why not, just purchase the gift card now, and go to the retail store after you buy the gift card to purchase the item. Many stores such as Best Buy and eBay and many restaurants have them too.   The fuels saving will add up fast! You can also make this idea work for you if you can buy a gift card and saved $1 per Gallons at Kroger up to 35 gallons, that is a net saving of $35.00, can you imagine the saving if you did that every month or if your going on a vacation? 12*350 = $350 per year savings. And, yes I also buy the red plastic gas containers too to get the maximum savings.

Cheap Car Insurance & Cheap Insurance


Cheap Car Insurance & Cheap Home/Renters Insurance
I personal saved $820.00 per year on shopping around on Auto and Homeowners Insurance. The best ways shop online and find agent that represents multiply companies.

Each insurance company has target market based on risk and credit score. So when you shop around you give you better way to find the company that wants your risk and credit score and tends to price that ratio at a better price. In a nut shell if you take your perfect driving record to good credit score to a high risk insurer, they will tend to price you higher then a insurance company that wants lower risk customers.

Great place to purchase the Insurance:

Save up to 20% off Utility Bills

Save up to 20% off Utility Bills
Do you know that you can save additional savings off your utilities like power and gas? 

Great place to purchase the discounted  utilities:


Gas Saving

Most month are getting a gas discount of $.050 per gal off at shopping at Kroger which is $210 per year of gas. Kroger goes by different  names across the US, ( King s00pers, Fry's, Smiths ect) You can simply buy a $100 Shell gas cards, that alone saves you $0.20 off a gal. of gas. Plus you can do the same thing for gift cards at restaurants, gift card for birthday's, weddings, ect.  The RX program gives you another 50 points, for each RX filled at their pharmacy (100 points = $.10 off gas)





s you $0.10 off gas). The saves will grow and grow.

Looking Good Doesn't Have To Cost A Fortune: Brand name items at low everyday prices


Great Place to purchase clothing items and other household goods

·    Clothing
I personally shop at Marshals and TJ Maxx for low prices causal cloths great brands for a fraction of the retail cost.  I found that Marshals seems to be little be less expensive then TJ Maxx, their owned by the same company.I personally never have been to the Shoppers World, which seems like a good place to check out as well. I purchased 2 pairs of shoes  of well known brand, that retail $85.00 over $100.00 each. I picketed them up for $32.00 and $40.00. So high end shoes for Wal-mart & Pay-less prices! Do not forget being frugal is not being cheap, in fact it is being smarter!   

·    Household goods
I personally find that Big lots, Olile's, and Marshals and TJ Maxx are great places to purchase bedding items and household decorative items the strategies her are to check these type of stores every few weeks for items that you might need now or in the future. They work off buy outs, and things come and go. I purchased a queen sized bed in a bag for $50.00 at Ollie's, similar bedding at Wal-mart is closer to $100.00.

Tips to save on Gas & Auto-care

Gas Saving

I made some suggestions on how to save gas on this blog. I know oil is at all time low. But the  Big oil is still playing pricing games. In effect making the consumer pay too much. How can us simple consumers fight back with using less of the product! 

Kroger & Giant Eagle Gas rewards 

Here is some ways to save major saving on gas with Kroger it is 10 cents/gal off gas and 20 cents/gal when you buy gift cards. Kroger's will  have promotions on gift cards with 4x the saving and regular shopping at 2x the points saving. Kroger you can only use up to $1.00 of savings and up to 35 gals. Giant has a similar  program the advantage you can get a free tank of Gas. The Giant Eagle program will only let use 25 gals.gas  at a time under their program. Maximum your saving buy the red gas tanks to get your full benefits of gas under the promotion. 

Common sense ways to save on Gas
• Reduce your speed
• Have regular tune-ups, and general maintenance
• Change motor oil and transmission oil at regular intervals (I used a full synthetic transmission fluid and I find a 1-2 MPG improvement) 
• Check air pressure, and inflate to manufactures recommendations
• Don’t increase speed driving up hill or a steep incline

Great ways to save on auto care
The best way to save on auto care is make sure you maintenance your car or truck. I know there are different views on what type of oil to use and how many miles before once change the oil. Always follow the recommendation of the auto manufacture and common sense. I personal used fuel injector cleaner after every oil change and used additive in the oil as well with conventional oil. I personal use Lucas oil, US lube, Prolong, or Fram oil additives.

I also used a cotton reusable air filter, which increase air flow and save gas because the car does not need to rev as high to reach the needed speed. One popular brand is K&N Both these products improved my fuel efficiency and performance.

But, another great way to save is if you can find a service shop that will let you buy your own parts. Some big chains will not let you do this. Other shops will do it for you! And you can shop for around for the best prices. I personal saved over $370 purchasing parts for my car parts over www.ebay.com and www.amonzon.com.
Always compare prices with the major auto part stores like www.Autozone.com, http://shop.advanceautoparts.com, www.oreillyauto.com, www.napaonline.com, www.rockauto.com

Computer advice for Computer shopping: Some great places to buy computers at great prices


Shopping for a Computer

The best places to buy is www.Newegg.com, www.Tigerdirect.com, www.MicroCenter.com, also check out www.BestBuy.com, some times they have really good specials. You should look at Ebay & Amazon and the manufacture's sites too. If you are buying a gaming computer cyberpowerinc.com & ibuypower.com, and Ebay has some great values.

You can save some money buy buying refurbished, or open box desktops are fine, laptops I never had one that last more then 1.5 years. If you buy  a used laptop buy a protection plan that is at least 2 years.  That way if it dies on you you either can get it repaired or replaced.

I do have a side note: If your computer is mission critical, have a back up  a computer. I can't tell you how many times customers try to make it the repair faculty responsibility because the computer is broken. If you are a business owner  or student that can't live without your computer make sure you have your data backup daily or weekly, your programs with activation codes  (windows, office ect)  is in a  safe place, and have a  backup computer. It can take up to one or two  weeks  to get your computer up and running again. This will save you much stress & anxiety, and just remember  your computer will break down someday we just don't know when!

Saving with Alternatives Home Phone System to use over the Internet


Alternatives to Phone Service using VOIP (Internet Phone)

Magic Jack GO 

I have used the Magic jack for years and it find a good inexpensive way to communicate over the internet. Many people are resistant to use one of these devices over their cable provider VOIP Services. I get so many calls about wanting a modem/router with a build-in VOIP telephone port. The problem is equipment is about 2x times more expensive then the modem/routers without the VOIP telephone port. If you goal is to save money? Then why do you want to pay twice the amount for the equipment? Just go with a 3rd part alternative VOIP home phone service provider. If you don't know the cable companies will charge you $8 to $9 per month for rental of their equipment, Buy your own will start saving some additional cost within a year. All in one cable mode/router starts at about $70 to $90, compared to a full one with the modem/router with telephone port starting at $180.

Ooma

If you want to dump your phone carrier but need all the bells and whiles, there is a higher end of a internet phone that you can buy the equipment, and  the monthly fee is good at $9.99 per month, you can port your current number to their system. www.Ooma.com

Vantage

We should not forget about Vantage, which get the same basic features as your phone company . http://vonage-promotions.com

Sales Dogs : You Do Not Have to Be an Attack Dog to Be Successful in Sales (Rich Dad's Advisors series) by Blair Singer, Robert T. Kiyosaki

Sales Dogs : You Do Not Have to Be an Attack Dog to Be Successful in Sales (Rich Dad's Advisors series)
by Blair Singer, Robert T. Kiyosaki (Book Review)

How to manage each type of sales personality type, the book breaks down the personalities in top five dog types: Pit Bull, Poodle, Golden Retriever, Basset Hound and Chihuahua. Singer does gives example on how to best used each personality to their full potential.

I find that the Investment & Insurance sales are attracting the Pit Bull (hunter), yes the Pit Bull is the best in bring in the originals sales. But, over time they fail to maintain relationships, and lose sales! It cost on average 5-10 times more to gain a new customers then maintain a current customer.

Why, only employ hunters in your sales team? I personal believe this is the left over of the industrial age, where sales people where the sales, marketing and in a big part the advertising for a company. In the information age people are looking for information and often disliked to be sold! The power of soft sales, and soft marketing and what I like to think of as public relations, is the centre of the communications of the company. Yes, it takes longer to gain market share. But, just image I can get 94 hits from about 15 - 20 minutes of work using social media. That would take a telemarketer about half a day! So would you rather pay me $10 for my work as a PR professional or pay the telemarketer about $40. The out come is I am building relationship, and the telemarketing in some cases are outraging, your market!

A note to think about: I just fired my insurance guy, only time he called me when he was losing business! Too late!! This why I always stated that all sales teams need to have a Golden Retriever or Basset Hound (Farmers)! In fact a true farmer can stop selling, and the business will come to them! And most sales teams only motivate the Pit Bull, with their trips and spiffs!! For a Golden Retriever this a big wooppie!!!! The Golden is a super customer service person. They wants to go out of their way to impress and need a win-win motivation!
Great book, I hope people in Insurance & investment will start reading it and learn!!

Solar Lights: A great back-up plan in case of power outage


  1. What a neat idea!
    Isn't this one great idea !!

    I have a friend who used her Solar Lights inside the house at night when
    the electric power went off during a hurricane. She stuck them in jars and
    bottles and said they gave off plenty of 'free light' in each room. She put
    them outside in the daytime and brought them back inside at night for
    several days while the power was off. They are safe to use and cheaper than
    batteries. She recommended we bring a Solar Light into our own house one
    night to test it for ourselves.

    Due to a thunderstorm, we lost power for about 5 hours one night. We were
    scrambling around in the darkness, looking for matches, candles, and
    flashlights. Then we looked outside and noticed our Solar Lights shining
    brightly all around the patio, stairs & dock. My wife walked outside and
    brought several of the solar lights inside. We stuck the Solar Light pipes
    into plastic drink bottles and they made the nicest, brightest, safest,
    lighting you could imagine. We put one in the bathroom, one in the kitchen
    and in the living room.

    There many types of Solar Lights available. We bought quite a few and put
    them all around our yard. They look nice and do not attract flying bugs
    like the outdoor lights around our doorway. The lights we have fit into
    20-oz. water bottles and also fit into most larger 2 liter bottles. If you
    need a weight in the plastic bottle to keep them from tipping over, put in
    a few of the colorful flat marbles they put in aquariums and vases. You can
    also use sand, aquarium gravel, or whatever you have available.

    The Solar Lights we have are perfect inside our home. They burn all night
    when needed and next day we take them back outside where they recharge and
    are ready for use again when needed. Solar Lights are the perfect light
    solution for power outages. I had never thought of it before seeing what my
    friend did, and now you know about this idea too.
Helping America save Money & Build a Better Future

The idea that you can help the middle class families save money and build a better future. After suffering my own hardships, and turned to credit counselors, that tired to charge me more then I was paying on my credit cards currently. This forced me to think of a better solution, So, I developed a saving system that can save the average family hundreds per month! And the best part, the basic program is 100% Free!!!

http://www.columbusfinancialcoach.com/Cheap-City-Free-Guide.html


Creative ways to market your job search: Start your own part time business add it to your resume

I have noticed that many of the same techniques that I use as a marketer, the career professionals tell you to do that same in the job hunting process. Such as live and online social networking (LinkedIn). Plus if you can start your free website and build some basic marketing skills like search engine optimization (SEO), social networking, and web design this will add a whole new set of skills for your resume. Look at my part of cover letter for example:

I started the Columbus Financial Coach, to aid members of my community that are being undeserved by many of traditional organizations. I developed a financial system that can help a broader range of families, improve their financial situation by using saving, insurance and investing in the mix. I have a self help program in place, as well comprehensive coaching program. The goal is to offer the coaching program in the evenings and weekends. 


And what I have placed on my resume:
 • Developed a niche web site based on research of 4 different credit counselor agencies, either unable to come with a solution or a solution that was unrealistic for person suffering a hardship
• Brand development, web site traffic growth by using free and low cost online advertising; including logo design, social networking, blogs, press releases & search engine optimization (SEO)
• Developed brand & sales strategies, implemented web analytic to monitor marketing programs
• Educating new clients on the company’s system of training/communications, creative budgeting, leveraging, & strategic financial planning


One can start a part-time business, to tell recruiters or hiring managers that your a cut above. Everyone can look for a job, but really how people are aggressive enough, to start they own business?

Helping America save Money & Build a Better Future

The idea that you can help the middle class families save money and build a better future. After suffering my own hardships, and turned to credit counsellors, that tired to charge me more then I was paying on my credit cards currently. This forced me to think of a better solution, So, I developed a saving system that can save the average family hundreds per month! And the best part, the basic program is 100% Free!!!

The power of Social Networking for employees and business owners

I have read a number of  book on the topic of social networking for job hunting and small business marketing. The author is an expert in both. You have to social network in both areas to be successful, I know how different the two seem to be, but with the power of social networking they can help you get ahead. I still remember a book title "Living is selling" that my dad had when I was very young. Today the book would be called "Living is Social Networking" I have to be honest a few years ago I though this social networking was a joke. Now, I know that this is being a great way to stand out from pack.

What I am saying to stand out from the crowed one must do more then just use social networking as a place to tell your friends all about the crazy party last weekend. Instead make your social networking site what you want an employer or customer to think about you. So, if you read much about a certain topic, leverage that to your advantage. You can show case that you’re an expert in X field. Ok, what if you don't much of a book reader? Well, place meaningful quotes on your social media. It makes you look really smart and look like you care enough to do the extra effort every day. Just the perfect person the hiring manager wants to hire and the person to get the job done. Now, if you’re a business owner, many people love quotes it will get you some new on lookers for your product or service. Lets not forget that if you update your website every day you will create a following and increase your ranking on search engines like google or yahoo.

The 3 best business books of all time (Will help you to get ahead in life)

One of the best books on motivation which inspired me was Napoleon Hill’s book “Think & Grow Rich”, until I have read Napoleon Hill's his complete work the "Law of Success" which was simply amazing. The best book on money management of would be "The Richest Man in Babylon: The Success Secrets of the Ancients" by George S. Clason. I know these are some very old books, but the classics hold their value over the centuries, and they lessons are as true today as they the day they where first written
