How to make 2016 your most productive year yet

first_imgAt the end of a deep Twitter rabbit-hole late last year I found myself on the Kickstarter page for something called The Spark Planner. The pitch began: “How successful could you be if you stopped being slowed down by day-to-day distractions, and started making real, tangible progress on your most important work and goals?” The page described a notebook that managed to combine many of my existing organizational quirks — like 30 day challenges — with clever features I wished I’d thought of earlier. Example: Time blocking, laying out what you want to accomplish in the morning, afternoon and evening to visually compartmentalize your day.The campaign went on to raise $460,602 – that’s more than 30-times creator Kate Matsudaira’s original funding goal. I’ve had my planner for a few weeks  and already it’s making a difference. This week I gave Matsudaira a call to hear more about how everyone can make 2016 their most productive year yet. continue reading » 14SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Land center of shady deals?

first_imgCALIFORNIA CITY – Seda Shadkamyan paid $39,500 for a patch of vacant land in the remote Kern County desert, hoping to pass on something of value to her three children. The county assessor determined the land was worth just $2,040. “I feel used,” said Shadkamyan, an Armenian immigrant who lives in Glendale. “My husband didn’t want it, but I forced him. It was my mistake.” Shadkamyan bought the land from Silver Saddle Ranch and Club, which buys tax-defaulted land in California City at auctions and sells it for up to 50 times what the Kern County Assessor’s Office considers fair market value. Several other people said the companies overcharged them for land purchases. After buying a property from NRPI for $18,000 in 2004, Anaheim resident Domingo Gomez said he was stunned to learn that he could acquire a bigger and better-located lot from Coldwell Banker for $9,500. He said he reached a settlement with NRPI but was forbidden from disclosing the terms. “The company is bad to Spanish people,” said Gomez. “We got a little money together, and somebody took it.”,160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Silver Saddle customers told The Bakersfield Californian newspaper that the company marketed itself in Korean newspapers, on Armenian-language television and through Tagalog and Mandarin-speaking callers offering prizes. NRPI markets itself in English- and Spanish-language television commercials featuring Estrada. Properties’ assessed values are publicly available, and representatives from both companies said their sales practices are legitimate and sales prices are fair. “That’s the market,” said Silver Saddle sales manager Robert Kvassay. But California City Mayor Larry Adams and other officials said Silver Saddle’s sales tours, which show off new development in the 9,400-resident city, do not reflect conditions where the properties are located. Adams said there’s no plan to install water lines, electricity or paved roads into the area where Shadkamyan’s quarter-acre of desert and about 20,000 other parcels sit. last_img read more
