Gold Investment Options

Since before the invention of the written word, human beings have traded the precious metal gold in the form of coins and jewelry. It has been prized through the ages for its shiny warm color and malleability which make it attractive in jewelry and artistic decoration. For centuries gold coins served as currency and until recent history paper currency was still linked to the gold standard. Gold is also valuable due to its many industrial uses in electronics and medicine. Because of gold’s nature as a hard asset, it can act as a hedge against inflation: when inflation is high and currency loses value, gold remains immune to inflation and gains value.

A New Years Resolution for Your Small Business

2013-new-yearThe New Year is traditionally a time of self-reflection and introspection which leads to new goals and resolutions towards positive change. The Wall Street Organization, Inc. believes that this should not only be true of individuals, but small businesses as well, through an annual review and overhaul of the Strategic Business Plan. In a perfect world every small business owner would have a formal, up to date business plan, frequently revised to best reflect their goals and the strategies they plan to employ to meet those goals.
