Friday Round-Up – Longing to be Free Edition

in round up

It’s been a long week with respect to my day job and frankly I’m longing for new adventures charting my own course. I have a variety of ideas in the works and certainly my success here at FiscalGeek has helped bolster that plan. Don’t get me wrong, I’m extremely thankful for my day job which rewards me well but I can’t squelch that entrepreneurial flow that is anxious to be let loose. I’ll keep you all posted as my ideas start to manifest into realilty but for now they exist largely in my enormous noggin. Enough of that on to the roundup.

New Stuff I’m Looking At

Groupon

This is a great idea that I wish I had developed it’s kind of a merge between Woot! and a coupon site that allows you to get a great deal daily on service in your town. For instance today’s deal in Seattle is a $50 credit at a local Bistro for only $20. This is a terrific service for both the small business offering the deal and the users looking for a great value. It functions similar to an eBay auction with a reserve price so that the business offering the deal can specify that they’ll only provide the deal if over 50 people buy the deal as an example. Today’s deal had a requirement of 50 people for the deal to be valid and there are currently 150 people who bought it. Very cool. Arguably everyday isn’t something you’d want to purchase but a fantastic site to add to your bookmarks list. Sign up now and tell them FiscalGeek sent you! Okay there’s nobody to tell but definitely something worth checking out, no cost to sign up.
