Where Will You Be In 6 Months?

6mtsIt seems there is always something to do. The perpetual to-do list. We make resolutions or plans to improve some aspect of our life. However, we are amazing at finding a “good” reason to start making the change at some time in the future. It’s very hard to actually decide upon a change in your lifestyle and make the change immediately. You know, I’ll start after the party next week, or after my vacation, or after the busy holiday season.

We ALL procrastinate. Weight loss and fitness plans are a great example of this. You want to get in shape of lose weight fast. But you say to yourself, “I’ll start eating healthier after New Years, or, I’ll start going to the gym 3 weeks from Tuesday.

The hard cold reality is that 6 months from now you will probably still be here. And, you will have either changed, or you will have procrastinated those changes away. Either way, 6 months from now those 6 months will have passed by.

You can’t stop time, but you can decide to make a change!

Let’s talk about weight loss. Sure, you read those sappy magazines and they tell you to try and lose a pound a week forever. Or, those other magazines that you pickup at the grocery store that shows you how some celebrity lost 40 pounds in 29 days!!

In the real world, we don’t have a staff, trainer, personal chef and publicist. And, in the case of many of the current celebrities who lose a lot of weight after giving birth, we don’t get paid to lose weight.

So, 6 months from now you will 6 months older. If your goal is to lose some weight then why not let chemistry and nature help you. Don’t try to re-invent the wheel. Do what seems to be getting the best results for the biggest group of people. Try using a diet pill or supplement to help you accelerate your results.

It’s hard to lose weight, and even worse, it’s really tough when the pounds come off slowly. There is currently on the market a very safe, natural diet supplement that people are reporting helping them lose 25 pounds in 30 days.

Introduction to FOREX for New Traders

globalforeignexchangeWhen traveling around Europe I was introduced to FOREX for the first time after a conversation with a friend surrounding foreign exchange. I started to look into FOREX trading and am now very knowledgeable. This is a quick post for people interested in learning more about the trading online.

Forex Trading, or Foreign Exchange Current Markets trading, is a great way to make money online. However, this isn’t something that you can just press a button and magically money will come out- you must understand how FOREX works and keep up with trading before doing anything.

Demo trading in FOREX is available and incredibly useful for first time buyers. When you use demo trading you are able to get used to the trading environment as well as test out some of your strategies. However, to get the most out of demo trading, you need to be mentally prepared to lose big time AKA you need to pretend you have skin in the game, or so to speak. If not, then you make decisions differently than if you had a couple tradingonlinethousand on the line making the decision. You have to be prepared to mentally handle the stress and pressure… as well as enjoy the ride because it really is a fun process.

Forex blogs are a great way to start understanding the basic of FOREX trading as well as get some good ideas for investment strategy. Again, what you read on a blog or forum may not be 100% accurate, double check the information, do your own research and take the tips given with a grain of salt. You need to understand your strategy for you, how you invest and what your goals are. Blogs and forums don’t know you.

Before investing in Forex make sure you understand how it works, why you can trade currencies, the hot terms and features of different FOREX trading platforms and how they work. Also make sure that you have some sort of demo account first. That’s very important.

Good luck!

Government Shutdown Can Leave A Strain On Your Stocks, Too

economicplungeAmidst the impressive performance of the US stock market in the past two years, a huge blow that is the current government shutdown is once again shaking the stock market. Overall, the shutdown recorded more or less 24 billion worth of losses to the US economy.

The shutdown may be over, but  its impact on private firms, including their stocks investors will surely be felt starting the last quarter of the year, until the first quarter of 2014. This is a projection shared by most of the leading companies in terms of sales stocks value including WalMart and Ebay. Fortunately for these bigger companies, bouncing back from the impacts of shutdown is still very likely.

Another industry that has been severely affected, and may find it more difficult to bounce back are the small businesses, which do not have sufficient resources to recover from their losses during the almost month-long government shutdown. So, how exactly do these private sector qualms affect your own stocks investment? Simply put, as the stock prices of the company goes down, your investment may also be reduced by almost a quarter by now. This is one of the risks of the stock market as an investment arena. As they say, “if it’s good, it’s really good.”

While it is still not confirmed how low the stock prices of companies and Wal Mart and Ebay went after the shutdown, the company executives themselves are already anticipating a certain decline in their stock prices.

On the brighter side, investment managers and stock analysts are also open the window of opportunity to buy more stocks that are currently in their lowest pricing as a result of the government shutdown. This smart move may even eventually complement the loss from the already invested stocks.

The losses from the shutdown may be inevitable, but a keen investor will always find a way to take advantage of any economic plunge to buy cheaper stocks. Now, instead of being wary of your losses, it’s time to actually think of a new strategy on how to make the most out of the economic state of the country.

Keeping Everything Safe during Travelling

HealthSafety1

We always love travelling, but there are times when we face unexpected things like losing our bags or losing things because of thefts. This can happen when we visit third world countries where some people think that tourists are always rich. They always aim to steal things from tourists, especially from western countries because they always consider that people in western countries have much better wealth.

There are things to pay attention seriously when it comes to security factor. First of all, we should choose the best or at least a reputable airline company. This is because there are so many crimes within planes where we mostly hear about theft on passengers’ bags. Such truth seems to be very normal these days, and we should be careful in keeping our eyes to our bags closely. Choose an airline which you can have easy access to locate your belongings much quicker. Follow-ups are the best thing to do because such things can happen when bags’ owners are not careful enough.

Another aspect is to find out about the security of the airport. When it is not necessary, it is important to avoid visiting third world countries. Yes, it is true that there is a strong temptation in visiting those countries because they mostly offer incredible places to explore. However, some airports do not have reliable security standards and they are mostly very crowded, especially during peak seasons. This factor is definitely important and you really have to pay attention on such matters, particularly when there are kids around.

Security aspects include damages on belongings. Damages can happen during the flight in which you might place your camera or other electronic devices within luggage. Luggage are just piled and when yours are placed in the bottom, then you have higher risk to suffer from damage. Keep fragile things within bags that you carry on the plane so that they are safe from being broken.

Pros and Cons of Company Car

car 

Owning a car is a great thing, isn’t it? It shows off your standard, imparts a great impression of your personality on the minds of your colleagues, friends, etc. but many people also prefer having a company car instead. Why is that so?

Well let s learn something about the benefits and drawbacks of having a company car in this blog post.

Doesn’t it sound really great when your company offers you a vehicle? You look forward to it as a benefit. Of course, your own car would cost you government taxes and maintenance charges as well, which we often do not see in the case of vehicles offered from companies.

Many associations add this benefit either to attract the employees or to keep the current employee working dedicatedly for their company.

But it highly depends upon the rules of your office, whether they allow the car for personal use as well. This we think, is the biggest disadvantage of the offer as for one would prefer cash instead of a car allowance which comes with this condition. Whether your company provides you with fuel charges or not is yet another issue.

The greatest benefit an employee finds in having a car allowance is that, he can step aside those huge car expenses, which would otherwise eat up all his savings. However, some companies may set up eligibility criteria for providing this attractive benefit to its employees.

But many people see it as a total loss, for of course, the car allowance is going to somehow be adjusted in your pay.
