Lakeside CBA

Did anyone else go to the meeting Tuesday, 8/19? It seemed a little disorganized and not enough community input. What do you think?

  • I never hear about these meeting until someone makes a comment in this forum. Where are the dates of the meeting posted?

  • Bob G. 8300 Burnham 65+ year resident of South Chicago

    I received an email from the Coalition for a Lakeside CBA . I think it's part of Alliance of the Southeast (www.asechicago.org/lakeside ). There was not a definite date announced but they mentioned either Sept 25 or 30 as possible dates for a "townhall meeting", location TBA. Subcommittees were supposed to meet in between. I will post the announcement here on EveryBlock if I get more info.

  • Thank you for your help

What can an individual who lives on a small salary do to invest and augment his income somehow? Here are some tips to follow:

1. Invest in something close to your heart

Whether it is in music or cooking, investing in a small venture will have a greater chance of surviving and even achieving reasonable success if it involves doing something close to your heart or within your experience as a person or as a worker. If you work as a waiter, why not learn as much as you can about some way of improving a recipe or a drink and come up with your own sideline you, or with a partner, can run during weekends or after work?

We hear this advice often and yet not many take it to heart or are brave enough to actually do it. Many feel it takes too much effort and money to start a business. This is not true, in general. Making a single unique jacket or fashion accessory and selling it can be the one step you need to encourage yourself to make more. Even a used item such as a broken sofa, if repaired and furbished to look attractive might bring you some income you never thought you could have from what you already have.

Oftentimes, all it takes is a lot of imagination and a dose of courage to jump right ahead on a new venture you never tried before.
