Register for a chance to win $529

 Mi Gente please register and participate for a chance to win $529 in a Florida 529 Savings Plan. This is a sponsored post, but opinions are my own. I am so thankful to Florida Prepaid College Foundation, first of all for teaching us the importance of starting to save early on for our children’s college education. They have many affordable plans to do so and secondly for giving us the opportunity to win different scholarships throughout the year. Anything that we can do to help our children with their education is absolutely appreciated. Let’s make sure we take advantage of the opportunities in front of us today. This is what Florida Prepaid College Foundation is offering right now: The Florida 529 Savings Plan Scholarship Program will award 10 winners a $529 Scholarship deposited into a Florida 529 Savings Plan account. The scholarships are part of the Florida Prepaid College Foundation’s continued commitment to increase awareness about the importance of saving for college. The Florida 529 Savings Plan has no minimum contribution, opening the door for more families to save for college. Florida residents can enter to win between May 15 and June 11, 2017. For the chance to win enter here: http://ow.ly/ZhgQ30bRCZx Foundation Board Chairman John Rood said: “Our hope is that these scholarships will make a significant impact for the 10 Florida families who win, by helping them begin saving for college now and avoiding student debt later,” “Student debt continues to be a state and national concern, but families who set aside even a small amount in a Florida 529 Savings Plan account each month can defray much of that debt load.” There is no minimum contribution to open a Florida 529 Savings account, and there are no application fees. This makes the Florida 529 Savings Plan one of the most affordable ways for families to save for college. The Florida 529 Savings Plan was a Top 5 performer among direct-sold 529 plans for the 10-year time period in savingforcollege.com 2016 performance rankings. Good Luck!!!  ...

Save Today for the future of your Child’s College Education

 This post is sponsored by the Florida Prepaid College Board, through my role as a Believer Blogger. They say that we can speak about things that we have felt or experienced, like the “been there done that” thing. But today, I want to talk about something I hope you do not experience like the regret of not saving for the future of your kids college education. You see, I owned a small business, worked very hard to make a six figure salary, but took for granted what I had, thinking that it would always be that way. Turned out to be that the world changed and the economy went down creating an unfortunate turn of events where I lost everything. Seriously my regret now, is that I didn’t open a savings account just for my son’s college tuitions and expenses. Thinking that I was going to make it big again right a way. I’m still in the process of making it big again. Meanwhile, I’m disappointed with myself but worst of all is that my son is affected by it. Please don’t let this happen to you. I hope you learn from my mistake. Prepare today for your child’s future education, the future comes a lot quicker that you think. Have peace of mind today knowing that your kids will be able to take care of themselves later on in their life. College tuition for your child is within your reach you just don’t know it yet.

Gran Apertura Bowlero en Miami

Gran Apertura Bowlero en Miami

 Artículo es patrocinado por Dime Media, pero todas las opinions son mías. Desde que yo era una niña me encantaba ir a jugar boliche con mis amistades. Nunca se trato de quién jugaba mejor sino de lo chévere que la pasabamos cuando estabamos juntos. Cuando leí que Bowlmor AMF, el líder mundial en el entretenimiento de boliche había invertido millones de dolares en renovar su centro ubicado en el Dolphin Mall de Miami llamado Bowlero enseguida pensé en lo divertido y perfecto para los niños que hago “mentoring”. Cuando llegamos a Bowlero Miami había una atmósfera chic, fascinante, que los chicos mencionaron que pareciera estar en un club. Estaban tan emocionados de estar ahi. Esta vez pude llevarme a cinco de los chicos. Empezamos jugando Laser Tag, que por cierto solo uno de ellos lo había jugado antes, así que fue una nueva experiencia para los demás y que mucho nos divertimos. Después nos fuimos a jugar boliche que también fue una nueva experiencia para la mayoría de ellos. Me fascina escuchar a los chicos reirse. Me da una satisfacción enorme verlos gozando. Después de los juegos fuimos al restaurante dentro del lugar y mientras cenabamos hablamos de lo mucho que disfrutamos estar en Bowlero a su vez planeando cuando regresaríamos de nuevo. Nuestros hijos son pequeños por tan poco tiempo. Tomen el tiempo de crear momentos especiales, momentos que los chicos se llevaran con ellos toda la vida. Les recomiendo Bowlero para crear esos momentos inigualables así sea con sus familiares, fiestas privadas, eventos corporativos o como hice yo hoy me que pedi permiso a los padres de estos chiquillos para compartir una noche muy especial de la cual se que nunca se olvidaran.
