Best Online Reputation Management Company Reveals When People Should Consider their Online Reputation

Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) October 29, 2014

Reputation management doesnt just apply to big businesses and public figures, reveals reputation management expert and Reputation Maxx founder Walter Halicki. The way that you look online can affect you no matter who you are, in ways that you may not realize.

While the perception may be that it is only needed by those whose lives are constantly in the public eye, in reality, everyone should think about how they look online. Everyone is connected to the online world, either through their own interactions on the Internet or through others. This means that the real world and the online world have become connected in important ways, and when people may least expect it, the way that they look online could affect them. While everyone should be wary of how they look online, here the Internet reputation manager Reputation Maxx reveals several times when it is vital that an individual knows their online standing.

Ghostbreakers, Starring Joey Greco, Debuts Online; So Funny, It’s Scary

Fort Worth, Texas (PRWEB) October 20, 2014

Just in time for Halloween, New Palace Films, Malchus Media and Joey Greco announce the release of the first season of Ghostbreakers, a faux reality series spoofing paranormal investigation, on demand in the U.S.A via for downloading and streaming.

The first eighteen 22-minute episodes of Ghostbreakers (shot on location in Shreveport, Louisiana) star Greco, who rocketed to international acclaim as the hardboiled host of Cheaters, the long-running reality megahit. Greco departed the show in 2012 to pursue his dual passions: comedy and metaphysical phenomena, resulting in the first ever ghost-hunting parody program.

Answering calls from desperate individuals in conflict with supernatural forces, The Ghostbreakers overconfident commander, played by Greco, leads his team of bold but hapless spook-chasersincluding a lovelorn gadget master (Gabriel Horn), a prima donna clairvoyant (Shanda Lee Munson), and a fainthearted muscle man (Bryan Massey)–face-first into the dangerous fray of the unknown. Attempting to placate, evict or exterminate mischievous spirits, they generally end up causing more harm than good for their often-dissatisfied clients. Failure is always an option for this dysfunctional crew of bickering nitwits.

Greco says, Having spent considerable time as a reality show host, it was refreshing to work on a project that made light of the genre. For parody to work, you need an over saturated format like paranormal investigation. Its tricks and clich

Hiltbrand established Cerebral Success in 2011, blending together safe study-aid alternative ingredients like B-vitamins, bacopa, Cognizin

Advanta IRA Holds Nationwide Webinar: Self-Direction 101Control Your Own Investment Funds and Decisions

Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) October 06, 2014

A self-directed IRA is a unique retirement account that gives owners absolute control over their own investment funds and choosing their own investments. Those who use these plans understand their chances of success are better if they invest in things they know and understand. Additionally, there is a large pool of alternative investments permissible in these accounts, which provides another huge draw for IRA owners.

Diversity within any investment portfolio is a critical rule-of-thumb for success. While holding stocks, bonds and CDs is recommendedthese are considered traditional investments offered by mainstream brokers. However, typically these firms do not offer alternative investments to their clients because they do not sell these options. Savvy investors capitalize on their own knowledge to acquire alternative investments as assets inside investment portfolios by using self-directed accounts.

Popular alternative investments include:

Real estate (single and multi-family homes, commercial property, raw land)
Precious metals
Private lending opportunities (mortgages, notes)
Tax liens and deeds
Private placements and crowfunding options
LLCs, LLPs, and trusts
Foreign currency exchange and futures trading

Other alternative investments are found in oil and gas opportunities, cattle, timber options, accounts receivable and more. The list of possible alternative investments can be extensive. The only items not allowed as assets are as determined by the IRS are collectibles and life insurance contracts.

Advanta IRA believes control is key in successful investing. Our clients are able to choose their own alternative investments that have the potential to garner retirement income at a faster pace than traditional investments, says Jack Callahan, managing partner of Advanta IRA Administration. While we do not provide investment advice or sell investments, we do encourage investors to educate themselves on the benefits of self-directed IRAs and offer a wide platform of events designed to do exactly that.

With that in mind, Advanta IRA Administration is hosting the webinar below to educate investors on the potential benefits of all types of self-directed investment accounts.

Event: Webinar Self-Direction 101

Date: October 8, 2014

Time: 7:00 8:00pm

Location: Online

Cost: No charge.

Register: by 5 pm (EST) on October 7th by emailing Larissa Greene at lgreene(at)advantairagroup(dot)com
