Anyone whom has ever watched late night television has seen those ads on goldnewsnetwork.com, the commemorative coin adds or the gold share investment ads. At the time you watched these adds you likely put them out of your head due to their generally hokey nature – but they weren’t wrong when they repeated their token line, “Now is the best time to own gold.” They are right, now really is the best time to own gold – but wait, you might say, why is that? The reason for this is the wild market downturn markets the world over has been experiencing due to the financial market collapse in China as well as various other socio-economic factors in various other parts of the world.
The problem people tend to have when considering whether or not they or their business should invest in precious metals such as gold is that one tends not to know what to really do with it. Enter the US Money Reserve, a privately owned precious metals distributor operating internationally and based in Austin, Texas. If you are looking for a place to go for a precious metal IRA there are few better options than the US Money Reserve. Not only do they have exceedingly affordable prices for their products but they also offer a one hundred percent money back guarantee on retailmenot.com within thirty days of purchase. This means that even if you go ahead with a purchase and then change your mind there is no downside.
One of the greatest benefits which a precious metal IRA built from the US Money Reserve affords is it’s self determination. Since a precious metal IRA (Investment Retirement Accounts) is self directed it means that you have total control over the contents of your portfolio – so if something is not working out for you simply take it out and replace it. This is a huge benefit over traditional IRA’s which generally consist of much less flexible contents such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds which can not be utilized nor controlled in such a tactical way. Also, paper assets are always more vulnerable to economic instability than real world financial assets such as gold or platinum due to the fact that their price is not dictated by any specific government (unlike paper currency).
If you are interested in looking into, opening or rolling over into a precious metals, self directed IRA account from the US Money Reserve you can find them through their social media accounts. The US Money Reserve can be found on either their Facebook, their Twitter Account or through their LinkedIn Page.

Online celebrity and entrepreneur Doe Deere created a makeup line in 2008 without a long term plan and no expectation for it to become as successful as it is today. Over the years, Doe Deere had amassed an online fan base who had long been inspired by her vibrant style. In making Lime Crime Cosmetics, Deere took their needs into consideration and created a makeup line that was literally a figment of her neon aesthetic. In 2008, a lot of online and offline celebrities began branding themselves and creating, very hot at the moment, cosmetic lines, but interestingly, they never achieved as much success as Lime Crime. The reason why is because Ms. Deere already had a demand to create a makeup line and she worked with that demand to create her makeup line.
Most online and offline celebrities who were coming out with makeup lines in 2008 were coming out with trite products that didn’t cater to their target audience. Doe Deere maintained her eccentric style and created a makeup line that could allow people to look like her. Doe’s goal in creating Lime Crime was to create eyeshadows that were just as bright in the pot as they were on the user’s skin and they definitely did that. As a result, it didn’t take long for online makeup gurus, fans, and the media to catch wind of Lime Crime Cosmetics and once they did they couldn’t get enough of it. Ultimately, Ms. Deere was able to provide high quality, richly pigmented makeup products that were actually affordable. The online media created such a buzz that Lime Crime became a household name among the cosmetic industry, and the interesting thing is that all of this was able to happen without a marketing or promotional team. This is, in part, because Ms. Deere utilizes consumerism to provide products that are current to the masses.
Once the Lime Crime CEO herself realized that her products were reaching outside of her own fan base, she began to take full control of her business savvy and was able to extend Lime Crime product into large chain retail stores and some of the most popular celebrity makeup artist’s makeup collections. As an entrepreneur, Doe Deere had dabbled into various business paths, but this one allowed her to incorporate her unique creativity to create something ingenious, which is why Lime Crime was fated for success.
