The Finance Bar: A Skoolie used to teach financial skills.

Meet the woman who turned a school bus into a mobile financial literacy hub

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/school...154620336.html

This was in my newsfeed this morning... a really cool application for a Skoolie! I think this lady could use this forum, though... She spent way too much on design, maintenance, and insurance. She's got to cut costs if she wants to expand her operation!

When folks like that come on here they are QUICKLY run off. A guy who was the CEO of a known non-profit group came on here once to try and find out about buses. He wanted to build a mobile classroom.
All he got from most who responded was insults.

IDK, I'll dig up a link to it so you can see what I mean.

edit- here's one example there are more
http://www.skoolie.net/forums/f6/mod...c-10746-2.html

and another-
http://www.skoolie.net/forums/f6/roa...ter-10792.html

seems these types of folks get a lecture and some insults.

Biggest issue is with people wanting FREE stuff, while most folks on here have busted thier butts to earn the money to build what they have,

so called "free loaders" have always been an issue here as well as most sites/forums that have any kind of DIY approach to a hobby or love

ie: Skoolies, firearms, brewing and art work

Her Bus is done, and she is using her brains to make money, only issue I have is the whole applying for grants... private sector? I have no issues with, it is their money...now government grants? that is my issue; that is MY money

Anyways, I invited her to see the site

The two links I've provided above in this thread do NOT have any "free loaders". They were/are treated as such, however.

FROM GPE WEBSITE GCE-US Programs and Priorities |¬*Global Campaign For Education United States Chapter

A"t the November 2011 Replenishment Conference, the United States made a one year pledge of $20 million dollars toward GPE which was less than two percent of the pledged $1.5 billion in donations by 57 other countries. The next replenishment opportunity is June 2014."

The other one is a Trade school and using available grants

SO

both are Using Our Monies, they both have good hearts

except the first one has almost zero chance of actually using those Billions of dollars due to massive corruption in Africa and I would like to see financials on the board members etc

Like I said I do not care what the private sectors does, it is my money that I am concerned with, there is enough wasted on EBT programs "Billions..." that I can not control, why waste more on buses that I work my butt off on??

Neither were here to discuss agendas or politics. They were here to talk buses and were shot down.
