Finance Friday: Are You Finding Balance?

Finance Friday: Are You Finding Balance?

It’s been over 15 years now that I have been taking care of finances in our family. I love the feeling every month that comes from balancing all the financial accounts to the penny! It’s such a feeling of peace and calm.

Would you believe that I used to never have “balance’ where finances were concerned?

My lack of balanced with regards to finances spilled negatively into other areas of my life as well, but that’s for another post.

Sacramento Man Creates Unique Business of Saving Memories

Sacramento Man Creates Unique Business of Saving Memories

After a varied and colorful career spanning everything from environmental activism to running a passport photo business, Marty Nelson opened Video Lab Multimedia, now located at 2630 Arden Way. Since 1985, as he tells it, he’s been in the business of saving memories.

In fact, Nelson is confident that Video Lab provides the most comprehensive source for saving memories in Sacramento and possibly Northern California.

In short, customers bring in everything from VHS tapes, audiotapes, vinyl records, old photos and negatives, professional format video, 8 and 16mm film and just about everything else out there and Nelson transfers, duplicates or even edits them into a more contemporary, durable, longer lasting digital format, including DVDs and hard drives. Memories saved!

And what sorts of memories is Nelson saving? Everything from irreplaceable home movies to slides of precious family vacations to old ¼ inch audiotape reels.
