The legitimacy of freedom checks has been called into question time and again. The video and radio ads proclaiming the profits to be had sound tempting. But in a market rife with scam the ads are still too sketchy for many investors. Not to mention that most people still do not have a firm understanding of what a freedom check really is.
Freedom checks are the return from a buy in to a legitimate investment opportunity. Matt Badiali, the expert behind the investment calls it a prime cash grab. This is because nothing needs to be done in the investment except invest money. What people are actually purchasing when buying in to freedom checks is a stake in a master limited partnership. MLPs are business that drum up capital through the sale of tradeable stakes. The stakes allow business to operate like public partnerships. A tax statute is attached to MLPs requiring that most of the company’s intake be returned to investors. This means that 90% of the company’s profit goes back to stakeholders. Badiali calls it a cash grab because the stake nabs a percentage of that 90% return. It comes back to investors in the form of what Badiali calls freedom checks.
These partnerships are in natural resource companies. Badiali is an expert in the natural resource field. A master investors, learned geologist, and author of two newsletters for Banyan Hill Publishing, Badiali knows everything there is to know about the natural resource market. He also makes his living by informing others of the advantageous prospects he comes across. In passing on the investment of the freedom check, Badiali has allows himself to become a mediator. Using his influence, knowledge, and the freedom check website to link investors up with MLP stakes. His goal is to get as many people as possible to invest so they can start earning profit. Despite the sketchy nature Badiali is sincere in his offer.
Jeff Aronin is a physician, entrepreneur, and the founder, CEO, and chairman of Paragon Biosciences.

He worked for years in the healthcare industry before founding his own company, which was Ovation Pharmaceuticals LLC.

He eventually sold Ovation to Lundbeck for $900 million and stayed on as its CEO to help with the transition.
Jeff Aronin decided to take all of his knowledge and expertise related to working on treatments for rarer diseases and put it into a new venture.

Most of his customers return to him for future surgeries, happy with his work. He refuses to give customers anything less than a pleasant experience with excellent results.
Among many of his practices, some include brow lifts, facial fat grafts, breast reconstruction, and labiaplasty, but he has really made an impact on the practice of buttock implants. A difficult procedure, buttocks implants have often been the cause of disaster as seen in the media. Mark Mofid knew this had to change and decided to redesign the procedure. He learned and mastered the craft over a decade ago but decided to perfect it by receiving additional training in Brazil, where the procedure is 20 times more common than in the United States. Along with a company called Implantech, he developed a new and advanced type of implant, one that feels natural and looks amazing.

Think of Yourself First
That is advice that flies in the face of most everything that we most likely believe we should do. We often hear that you should always put members of your family first. You are told that it is selfish to put yourself first. However, one has to wonder why that could be the case. There is no commandment written anywhere that says that this must be the case. In fact, putting yourself first in certain circumstances is actually the best thing to do for your loved ones.
Start Saving for College Early
The earlier that you can plan ahead for the upcoming college costs the better. The cost of college just continues to rise and rise. People who want their children to attend an institution of higher learning should start preparing for the costs of that education as soon as possible. That is the only way that you can be sure that your child will actually be able to afford to go.
This is obviously good advice no matter how old you are or what your station in life is. You have to try to save money whenever possible because you don’t want to call upon others unnecessarily to help you with your financial situation. Look at saving like this and you will probably do more of it.
