Making Money with Articles: Optimal Article Length

When choosing an article for your website, make sure that it is a length that is optimal for search engine optimization efforts. Articles that are as short as 200 words or as long as 500 words should fit into this category. Even if search engine optimization is not your goal, it is still a good idea to keep your articles at this length for your reader's sake. They are likely to not finish your page if it is any longer. This could leave them Kith only half of the information you wanted them to have or leave them with the impression that your site is too "wordy". Most Internet readers do not read a website page as they would a book, so the shorter the better. Even if this means splitting one long idea into 4 or 5 pages. Be sure to label them so that the reader can pick and choose which part they want to read or so they know what is coming up next to help them determine if they want to continue reading.

Making Money with Articles: Niche Websites

Choosing a good niche subject to base your website around is one of the most important aspects of making money off of your articles. This will give you a foundation to build from and you can target one general audience with a pack of keywords that they are most likely to be searching for. You should take each one of these keywords and use it for the basis of one article on each page. This way, even though you are targeting one specific subject, you will be sure to interest a wide variety of people in that one niche. They may also find other pages that interest them, which will keep them returning to your site to learn new information about the niche subject.

The best way to find keywords for your niche subject is to use a keyword software program and type in the word that is the subject of your niche. This will generate a list of keywords or phrases that contain your niche and will also show you approximately how many people search for each word or phrase. Some software programs may also tell you how many sites are out there to compete with for each word or phrase (this will help you know if those sites are worth competing with for the number of searches out there). You then deicide which of these would be most profitable by determining which have the least amount of competitors, so that you have a chance at making it to the first or second page of search engine results, but that also have a decent amount of people looking for that keyword or phrase each month. These will be the keywords or phrases that you will base the pages of your niche site on.

If there are a number of topics that you like, pick the one that you feel would be easiest to start with and then, once that site is built and generating some revenue, you can start another site. The most profitable website marketers, who use their talent of finding niches and combining that with good site content and a handful of affiliate links, have a good amount and variety of niche sites that they have started. You are never limited in what you can do with niche website marketing, unless you find out that you do not have the marketing skills or the needed funding to make it happen. Otherwise, the sky is the limit!

The Minimum Wage

In January of 2007, the federal government raised the national minimum wage. This was old news in some states where the minimum wage had been raised months before congress took action. No matter how you look at the increase in the cost of labor, it is going to have an impact on the business climate and on how businesses will make key decisions in 2007 and going forward.

In theory a raise in the minimum wage should be a nonevent economically. It should be a simple adjustment for inflation which the business has already adapted to. In fact, as inflation raises the cost of goods and the prices the business charges, one might expect the wages of workers to rise naturally to match that upward slope caused by inflation.

How you view the good or the bad of the minimum wave increase may depend on which side of the fence you reside, the employer side or the employee side. To the employer the rise in employee costs makes doing business more expensive and affects the bottom line. To the employee, the employer is just being competitive and paying his or her employees a salary that they can live on. In many cases, you may be on both sides of the issue if you own or operate a business but have people in your family who are trying to get by on the minimum wage.

The hardest hit businesses by this upward push in wages is small business. Enterprises that employ a large amount of unskilled, lower paid workers can see a huge jump in the cost of keeping employees because of state or federally mandated increases in employee pay. Many times small business enterprises operate on a thin margin of profit and any change to the cost structure can be a deadly hit to their budgets. Moreover, since the small business model is intensely competitive, there is little room to raise prices to clients or customers without risking losing business to a larger competitor who can absorb the minimum wage increase without increasing prices.

These concerns are part of the reason that from a governmental stand point, congress is slow to increase the minimum wage. There is already a tremendous resentment in the population for businesses that are relocating their production or support facilities over seas to take advantage of low paid workers to keep their bottom line on track. You have to know that employee costs are a big issue when a business is willing to relocate much of their operation to a foreign country and incur all of those costs just to tap an employee base that will work below the minimum wage.

From the worker perspective, it's hard to understand how this trend to take low paid jobs out of the country can be changed. We are slow to stop businesses from taking actions they need to take to compete in the markets which is why passing legislation to stop the exporting of jobs is not a popular idea. While it might help the plight of the worker in this country, it goes contrary to our priority on letting the free market and capitalism play out. Sadly, when the free market does reign, sometimes good people get dealt out of the program.

The best way for American workers to combat competition from unskilled workers overseas is to stop being unskilled. By taking advantage of educational opportunities and gaining valuable skills, they can enter a new market where those skills will land them a good paying job that is not likely to go overseas because of the specialized skills the worker offers to employers. So the best way for government to fight the export of jobs due to high employment costs is not to artificially suppress the market to hinder free trade. The best move is to make our workers more skilled, more valuable and for workers to simply outwork their competition overseas. This is capitalism at work at its best and if that line of attack is followed, the outcome for everybody is a stronger work force, the retention of jobs in America and a stronger national economy as well.


What Google Knows

It wasn't that long ago that a tremendous scare went through the internet community. The issue had to do with the huge amount of data that can be collected on individuals using search engines online. This large body of information naturally drew the attention of the Homeland Security agencies who are charged with the job of finding out all they can about potential sleeper cells of terrorism in this country.

The stand off came when the government began to demand access to the search records of all users of the major search engines. When this upcoming struggle for privacy began to come to a head, many of us who depend on search engines for both personal and business research began to get that "big brother is watching" feeling.

It's a tough compromise. We know that our government must have the ability to find and put a stop to security risks that might result in another disaster like September 11th 2001. But at the same time, Americans are tremendously protective of their liberties, their privacy and their right to be left alone by the government.

Of all of the search engines who were in the spotlight during that struggle, Google's resistance to allowing undue invasion of privacy of their customers stood out as an act of courage in a difficult confrontation. It turned out that Homeland Security really wasn't becoming "big brother" and was simply researching how to use statistical data to possibly find terrorist patterns in search engine usage. But many of us remember that while Yahoo and others knuckled under quickly, it was Google who stood up and protected user information rather than immediately turn it over to Uncle Sam.

This stand reflects a long established business ethic that Google has maintained to be protective of the data it collects about users of its search tools. That protective nature has more benefits than just building our confidence that Google is a safe tool for all of us to use. Google indeed has at its disposal a tremendous library of personal information on anyone using its search tools. And as the dominant search engine in the industry, this potential includes just about anyone who accesses the internet.

The information that can be collected from you and I as we use the internet can tell an interested party a lot about your interests, what kind of business you are in, your religious views and your political affiliations. Powerful analytical tools are available to take large volumes of search information and translate that into profiles that would be of great interest to the government and to marketers who would love to be able to target specific populations for sales.

For Google, this information has significant value to them as they fine tune their search engine methodologies. They can methodically analyze this data to draw conclusions about how their search tools are working and how they should update the formulas that drive those tools to be more in step with how the internet audience is using cyberspace. Yes, this is taking advantage of their already dominant position to secure that position and make their toolset even more capable of staying ahead of the game. But we really cannot fault Google for using this data in that way. That is just good business.

It turns out then that Google's protective posture when it comes to that massive database of search information serves their purposes extremely well. If they can keep this mountain of very specific data secure and proprietary, it represents a trade secret of tremendous value to Google to help them maintain their market superiority for a long time to come.

This is a case of the needs of the market serving the public good well. For as Google protects our search information so only it can benefit from such knowledge, they also are protecting our privacy from the prying eyes of overenthusiastic government agencies, hackers, marketing campaigns and even the terrorists who could use that information for insidious purposes. Therefore we can be thankful that Google jealously guards this data for its own uses because in the process, they are protecting us along the way.


Virtual Employees

When we say something is "virtual" in modern terminology, we are almost always talking about something related to the internet. So Virtual Dating is dating using the internet. "Virtual" does not mean something that does not exist. But it implies you are replacing a normal physical entity with a real but for the most part unseen entity that lives online.

The trend in strategic business planning is to incorporate an aggressive "virtual marketing" plan with your traditional plans. So it makes sense that eventually the move to virtual resources would reach human resources with the availability of virtual employees.

In the last two or three years, virtual employment has taken off and become a very real resource for businesses wishing to tap into valuable experience and subject matter expertise that cannot be found locally. Agencies such as Team Double Click and Rent-A-Coder provide an army of ready to work professionals that can step in and get a job done quickly and efficiently for an employer.

The obvious first application of virtual workers is to subcontract to an online employment agency certain task specific projects that have a short beginning, middle and end. Building a new function into a web page is a good example of a project that can be packaged into an understandable project and signed over to a virtual consultant to perform the work and return to the online employer. The handling agencies collect funds via escrow so neither the employer or the consultant are at risk and the handling company claims a percentage of the fee as part of their pay for facilitating the partnership. Everybody wins.

But the concept of virtual employment is going beyond providing another variation on outsourcing to a consultant. Many virtual employment agencies provide administrative assistants, sales support and many other functions normally associated with a full time employee but those services are done "virtually". A virtual office manager can have calls routed to his or her remote phone, emails redirected and conduct office meetings and negotiations with vendors via email or instant messaging. Using these modern tools, a virtual assistant can provide almost every function an on site assistant might be able to do but do so at a lower cost to the employer.

The virtual employment trend in business has obvious benefits for businesses that are in need of qualified help. It opens the door to recruitment sources that can supplement the local talent pool. Many times virtual staffing agencies may have on their "employee roles" people with a specialized background or skill. The agency is skilled at defining exactly what their client businesses need and matching up the right virtual employee to the job so the business has the right skill sets where they need them, when they need them and only for as long as they need them.

In addition to the benefits that virtual employment has for businesses to fill needs for skilled workers, it's an excellent resource for talented workers who want to make a contribution to the business world on their own terms. Virtual workers almost universally work at home or where they chose to work. Often the work is task based with a deadline so the worker can select the hours that fits their family and personal schedules best. And, like working for a temp agency, the employee can build a resume with the agency that improves the quality of work they get over time.

Virtual staffing is a trend that has been a success for all involved as it has matured in the last few years. We can look for this twenty first century methodology for bringing in talented workers to continue to grow as more and more businesses get comfortable with staffing their employee ranks "virtually".

Is a Degree Necessary to be a Business Analyst

The lack of proper education can be a major drawback for someone breaking into the business world. Many people study business management and other business related courses. There are many diplomas issued each year to hopeful business prospects. When it comes to being a business analyst all the rules change. Although a degree can be helpful, it is not necessary. Experience is the key to success when it comes to a business analyst.

Many great business analysts did not even go to college. If they did it was not in the field of business but technology. A business analyst can earn a degree. There are certification classes one can take to hold the title of certified business analyst. Most have learned from experience not from books.

A good business analyst is one who has prior experience in the business world with trouble shooting. They will be able to assess a business proposal or project and determine needs from data gathered. A book or white paper may not tell a business analyst what needs assessments to to prepare. Only experience can do that in certain businesses.

To better understand what degree a business analyst must have consider it only takes 8 weeks to become a certified business analyst. 2 months of study can explain what the job description is and how to implement it. When you put it in those terms, it may be a little unnerving to some. Those 8 weeks are crammed with information straight from a text book. The real world is slightly different.

A good business analyst is going to understand the concept of code. He or she is going to know there is something amiss when they start researching the problems reported by management. There may be simple solutions which only require added code to justify the means. Other projects many require extensive analysis to determine where the problem lies and how to correct it. Someone with business savvy can figure it out. The problem lies in implementing the plan of action.

The reputable business analyst will be able to speak with management and other stakeholders to hear what problems and solutions have been ascertained. These issues may or may not be the root source of the conflict. The business analyst can determine this. He or she can weed through what management thinks is necessary information to glean the truth. He or she will be able to drop in on IT and see what their take on the problem is. The business analyst will also speak to other low end users who know more about the application of the program. This is where other departments fail in providing what works and what does not compute with real life scenarios.

Does someone need a degree or license to understand the issues of business? No. Does it help to have an understanding? Yes. It certainly looks good on a resume to list degrees and certifications. Past experience and a portfolio of solved issues will go farther than any framed paper.

Customer Relations and the Business Analyst

In today’s market the customer should always come first. This has been the bread and butter of many industries throughout the ages. A satisfied customer is one who will keep coming back. The customer is the one who helps the bottom line. This is true in the field of business analysis. It is the customer’s needs which the business analyst is fulfilling. The business analyst should help to strengthen customer relations. Time put into this is time well spent. Finding the customer to be unhappy is never a good thing. Ask any good business manager what their number one priority is and they will answer customer relations. Sometimes it does not always show.

Many of today’s corporations utilize a big part of their budget on improvements in operations. The target is the bottom line. What they fail to realize is this can and will drive customers away. Targeting the needs of the customer is first and foremost in any business. The same holds true with business analysts.

When going in to trouble shoot a system, the business analyst becomes a production manager. If he or she does not put the needs of the customer first, the project will undoubtedly fail. Listening to the customer to determine what is needed and desired is the start of a good relationship. When the business analyst fails to listen the entire project could not only start on the wrong foot but end in disaster as well.

The business analyst must encourage feedback. He or she must understand just what the customer is wanting, even if they do not know themselves. The customer may know what he or she wants the project to accomplish. They may know how they want something to run. The customer just may not know how to say it. He or she may collect data imperative to the project program. It is the business analyst’s job to determine if the data is even relevant. He or she is the liaison in this relationship. He or she must have good customer relations skills. The business analyst must speak the customer’s language.

Putting the customer relationship first can be a daunting task at times. The bottom line is critical to success on any project. There are times the business analyst will be caught up in keeping cost down and compromise the relationship he or she has with the customer. The customer will be much happier if you go a little over budget and keep him or her happier in other areas of the project.

Sometimes it is easier to prepare reports and allocate spending to IT to accomplish a task than it is to spend time or money developing a plan for customer satisfaction. The price any company could pay for this is a high one. The business analyst is no different. Customer satisfaction means keeping them informed of progress. Speak in a language they understand. Consult with them when a roadblock is met or when a progress point is passed. Either way, keeping a constant rapport with the customer ensures a satisfied client. This can lead to repeat business. This helps the business to grow.

Being Flexible as a Business Analyst

Sometimes the business analyst can be so caught up in a project he or she forgets tried and true methods do not always work. The analysis team is trying to get done what the customer has scoped out and sets up a plan of action. The plan of action requires certain fundamentals. There are times when these rudimentary ideas just do not work for the client. The client can not understand why these steps may be so important. This is when the business analyst needs to step back and ask the same questions as the client. It is all in communication.

The professional business analyst must understand success of the project is not only about requirements documentations it is about how those requirements are handled. The business analyst is the acting liaison between the client and IT. The documentation may be required for the IT team to do their job. Certain explanations may be necessary for everyone to understand what is needed. Yet the client may not understand the documentation or have no need for it to begin with. Communication skills are what is required.

The business analyst may get further and move faster with just a simple meeting to explain the methods and procedures being used. The client can ask questions and the business analyst can explain. The case studies and other documentation would not in any way assure the client of progress. There are those who need to hear it because to them it may look good on paper, but how is it supposed to work? A good business analyst can explain the intricacies of what is taking place. The client can sign off. The work can continue. The goal is being met.

This is where the business analyst must be flexible. Just because he or she has done this a thousand times with other clients does not mean this client is like the other thousand. The job of the business analyst is to determine what the client wants. Paperwork may be a burden to the client. The business analyst should comprehend how information is delivered. He or she must be flexible enough to deliver what the customer is requesting. The business analyst must ensure the client is comfortable with how information is delivered. Not the other way around.

There will be times the business analyst must learn to be flexible when it comes to dealing with information. Not everyone can do the job of a business analyst. This is why he or she was hired in the first place. However, there may be no documentation for certain things the analyst is normally made privy to. The business analyst must be flexible in knowing how to work around this barrier. He or she must know how to gather the information needed to perform the task. Flexibility comes in handy at this point. The business analyst may have to do what he or she can at present and wait for statistics to be gathered. Instead of getting a concise written report from the team, the analyst may have to interview each member to gather what he or she needs.

The key is to work within the boundaries of the client. Do what the client feels comfortable with. The business analyst may not be as comfortable. Being flexible in any situation will do away with this unease. The task at hand can be accomplished.

A Primer of Corporate Finance

Corporate finance can be complicated. They are financial instruments to increase the company’s business value and reduce possible risks associated with the company, such as credit, liquidity and operational risks. Credit risk refers to the risk of a borrower not paying back debt. Liquidity is the ability to modify an asset into cash. The faster the well can be converted to cash, more liquid. Liquidity risk is the risk that a particular asset cannot be converted into cash fast enough to bring a profit or avoid a loss. Operational risk addresses the risk inherent in the operations of a company. This is a bit wider than other types of risks. Operational risk includes fraud and other illegal practices.

When a company makes a profit, distribute dividends to their shareholders. Shareholders are investors in the company. Dividends are simply part of the company’s profit that is paid to the shareholders of that company’s shares. Dividends can take a variety of forms, including cash payments, stock dividends (further action) or property dividends. Property dividends can be activities such as titles, as well as products and services. In the past, they have also involved the Earth’s surface. Sometimes a company to reinvest dividends. This is what is part of net profit of the company.

Occasionally, an individual or a company wants to buy another company. There are several ways to accomplish this. One way is an acquisition. The acquisition, also known as acquisition or buyout, involves the buyer of the company buying the target company. MBO (Management buy-out) and MBI (Management Buy-In) are two types of this. MBOs occur when existing management company acquires a large part, or all, of the company. Contrast with this MBI, which happens when no individual or group of people from outside the company took over the company and gives themselves as the new management of the company.

Another form of acquisition is known as the consolidation or merger. The merger occurs when two similar sized companies join together to form a completely new company. A friendly merger is one in which both companies are negotiating the terms of the merger. On the contrary, a hostile merger is one in which a company does not want to join another, or the Council of the society does not know before the merger bid.

Financial markets-an overview


In common parlance, a market is a place where trading takes place. Whenever we think of the markets, an image that flashes through our minds is a place which is very busy, with buyers and sellers, some sellers, shouting at the top of their voices, trying to persuade customers to buy their products. A place teeming with vitality and energy.

In the early stages of civilization, people were self-sufficient. They grew everything they needed. The food was the main product, which could be easily grown in the yard, and for non-vegetarians, jungles were open without restrictions on hunting. However, with the development of civilization, the demands of every being has grown; they needed clothes, objects, tools, weapons and many other things which could not be easily made or produced by a person or family. Therefore, the need for a cliché has been heard, which could collect people who had a good offer and people who needed that product, meet their mutual needs.

Over time, the way the markets have worked changed and developed. Markets became increasingly sophisticated and specialised in their transaction to save time and space. Different types of markets are that specialize in a particular type of product or transaction. In today’s world, there are markets that meet the needs of manufacturers, vendors, consumers, children, women, men, students and what not. For discussion of the topic at hand, the different types of markets that exist nowadays can be classified as goods markets, markets and service markets. This article tries to give an overview of the financial markets.


According to encyclopedia II, «Financial Markets» means:

“1. the organizations that facilitate the trade in financial products. i.e. stock exchanges facilitate trade in stocks, bonds and warrants.
2. the coming together of sellers and buyers to trade financial products namely stocks and shares are exchanged between buyers and sellers in a variety of ways including: the use of bags; directly between buyers and sellers, etc. ”

Financial markets, as the name suggests, is a market where securities are traded. The instruments that are traded in these markets vary in nature. They are actually tailored to meet the needs of different people. Macro-level, people with excess money offer them money for people in need of investments in various types of projects.

To simplify the discussion, let’s take an example. Mr.x has 10 rupees lacs as his savings that lie down with him. He wants to invest this money so that over a period of time he can multiply this amount. Mr. Y is the promoter of ABC Ltd. Has a business model, but does not have sufficient financial means to start a company. So in this scenario, Mr. Y can use the money that lies idle with people like Mr. X and start a company. However, Mr. X can be a person in Kolkata and Mr. Y may be in Mumbai. So the problem in the current scenario is that as Mr. Y learns that some Mr.x has the money he is willing to invest in a company that is similar to what Mr. Y wants to start?

The above problem can be solved by providing a common place where people with liquidity can mobilise their savings to those who need to invest. This is precisely the function of financial markets. They, through various tools, solve only one problem, the problem of mobilizing the savings from people who are willing to invest, who can invest in reality. So from the above discussion, we can apply as financial markets are no different in spirit from any other market.

The next issue that must deal with is the distinction between the different financial instruments that are launched on the market? The answer to this question is the nature or the needs of investors. Investors are of various types and therefore have different needs. Various factors that motivate investors owned controlling interest in a company, security, trade, economy, etc. Some investors might want to invest time and earn an interest on their investment; others can make a short-term investment. There are investors who want a different kind of investment so that their investment is safe in the event of an investment. Therefore, the needs of investors who have brought many financial instruments on the market.

Innovative printing press for all commercial uses

Screen printing or silkscreen painting is a printing method that renders a color image that requires a cutting edge porous fabric and stencils. This technique of creating prints came into vogue during the Pop Art movement of the 1960s. The uniqueness of this style is that it could be used any paint or ink and multiple colors can be applied after each layer dries.

The main equipment for screen printing consists of canvas stretched over a bolting the frame and this stencil is placed above the screen of silk, for support. The surface to be printed is placed on the back and colours are forced through the stencil on the surface. Different colors can be used with a variety of screen printing stencils on the surface in layers. As each layer of color must be dried before applying a new color scheme is a process that takes time.

The art of serigraphy is an ancient technique of creating works of art. Originated in the far East and original displays were created by seta absorbent quality. Was based on a Japanese form of stencils, used primarily on fabrics. In 1907, Samuel Simons took patents and modern screen printing was established on the basis of these patents. This was quickly adopted by John Pilsworth (1914) in California and his works relate to this day. These days, the screen printing method (although with polyester screens) is mainly used in fine arts and commercial printing on a small scale for printing banners and flags. With changing demands and technology, screen printing started to embed chart stencil.

Mostly screen templates are created by hand and you can have any shape that you need simply to cut plastic sheets and its application on the screen. Other methods include creating the desired image on the screen. Screen printing is done mainly for objects in ceramic, metal, glass, synthetic elements, clothing and other fabrics. It is particularly useful in large print graphic design and screen printing became more flexible, better alternative to traditional printing methods.

Although the screen-printing is often associated with clothing, is widely used for decals, watches, posters, displays and billboards. It became the preferred method of printing as the costs are low and can be used for printing on a variety of surfaces. Graphic screen printing is widely used to mass-produce posters and other display objects, decals for many industries at very low costs.

Taking a PPI compensation claim alone it:-


Your claim to do much more than go through an agent, such as loan companies will be considered small fry and try to fob continuous with endless letters.

You may mistakenly think you can claim back PPI payments only (whether monthly or one payment at the beginning of the loan). Where as in reality may request the reimbursement of the loan agents Commission, interest on PPI to legally backup 8% per annum and even compensation.

You can stand a chance much lower than using an agent to reclaim PPI, and you’ll have to do all the work yourself, which is not as easy as some may declare.


However you will save money on Commission agents.

Claiming through an agent


Normally they take a Commission of 25%.


If it is claimed through an agent you’re probably a 95% of them winning your PPI claim in full.

You will recover the money much faster than if you did it yourself. Sometimes in just 3 weeks.

You just fill out a simple form, which will only have a few minutes to fill out if you have at hand the details of policy.

Then they will handle all aspects of application documentation for you.

Operate on no win, no fee basis-you pay nothing in advance and nothing if they lose the case.

So as you can see there are pros and cons to both locations, I personally recommend going through an agent, taking a Commission, but in Exchange to manage all aspects of finance for you after you build a simple PPI claim application. For more information about the benefits of how easy it can be to claim and claim benefits please read my signature below.

Average compensation of mis-sold PPI is about £ 2,500 so if over the past five years has had one or more PPI policy then clearly is well worth it in claiming compensation for the PPI. Some people have even argued over £ 25,000!

Why you need to find a good accountant

Through life, there will be some professional relationships that really matter. Your doctor, lawyer, personal banker etc. .. One of the most important relationships you’ll need is one with an accountant.

You may think that an accountant is beneficial during tax season, when really it can be relied upon for much more … You can activate your accountant for advice on financial and investment planning.

And if you really have a problem on your income? The best person to fix your problem is an accountant. Accountants are skilled in CRA policy and procedure, which may be able to find ways that you or the CRA has made a mistake on your tax return or expense you don’t understand who could have supported.

If you have a problem of income tax, because they have not filed any income for several years? An accountant is still the best choice. If you are experiencing difficulties finding an accountant specializing in solving tax problems where the taxpayer is inconsistent. Mark Feldstein and Associates is a chartered accountant firm in Toronto and is a perfect example of an accounting firm that argues for taxpayers who have tax problems.

Your relationship with your accountant should be long term, then here are some things to think about when looking for a good accountant:

1. search and ask that they use your friends and family. Nothing is better than a recommendation from a trusted friend who used the accountant.
2. you get what you pay for! If you go to a Chartered accounting firm, can charge a higher rate than an H & R Block but remember CA is experienced, work quickly.
3. The accountant to see if anyone has posted negative feedback about Google’s online accountant.

Many people think “I want to pay the minimum amount of tax” or “I want the biggest” refund at tax time and race to find the most aggressive accountant. Aggressive accountants are those who land in big trouble. The best type of accountant is the person who are complete, practical and honest and has a low to moderate appetite for risk. Not someone who will cut corners to increase your bottom line and potentially get checked. A former employer once said: “If you are always honest, you don’t have to have a good memory” and it couldn’t be more true when it comes to your taxes and finances.

Pensions-how to lose easily 131,000

Easily enough, the worst can open the chat in line would begin to talk about pensions.

Although I researched them for over twenty years, it never ceases to amaze me how fast can I I fall asleep at the thought of even thinking about them.

And that is probably why more than 17 million people living in the United Kingdom have never reviewed the pension that they set up.(1)

Each of these pensions can easily be reviewed. A good friend of mine died recently and he had put off his retirement planning and didn’t want to watch it. Its pension plan had a value of £ 113,000. Because he had never examined (‘ the bored senseless ‘, he would say), he had not noticed that the death benefit on his retirement was actually a return of premiums paid, rather than the total value had grown to.

He had examined, as pena and simply turned on the Board. Instead, its beneficiaries received the return of premiums-a paltry £ 38,000, which resulted in a fine of £ 75,000.

Too often a Board is removed to a spare of the moment and never considered again. In fact, research by Barings showed that 38% of all pensions taken choose default pension fund available, and therein lies the reason why the performance of the Pension Fund.

With 48% of us never having considered our pensions, only one out of five review in recent years and 12% sure if they looked at getting their house literally millions are wasted.

Take a pension fund of £ 100,000. In the last year average United Kingdom all holdings pension fund returned £ 12,400. Top performers returned £ 30,800 and worst Fund lost £ 1,200. The difference between the top and middle was 18,400 pounds and this is more than a year. (2)

In five years the numbers are pretty impressive. The average fund returned £ 19,500, superior Fund returned £ 80,500 and worst Fund returned a loss of £ 50,800. The gap between the top and the worst thing was an unforgivable £ 131,300 on a simple investment of £ 100,000.

Now we all know that past performance is no guide to the future, but an expert independent financial advisor will have all the search tools to ensure a good quality of consistency in the Fund Manager.

For example; twelve years ago after having invested in a sophisticated search mechanism that now I can see on a month to month basis as consistent is a fund; how much risk you are taking. where the returns are coming from; the strategy of their decision and the decision-making process.

That was very helpful over the years to ensure the maximisation of returns, but only if investors review their pensions that their independent financial advisor can help you make the relevant changes.

Maybe it’s a sad reflection of investors ‘ view of their financial adviser that the 13% of customers use a family member to decide where to invest their capital and select which resources to allocate to.

So much so that nearly 2 million people rated the advice from their financial adviser on such fund to be used as a poor and 3.3 million today, make that decision on their own.

While the vast majority of retirement accounts go to an independent financial adviser for their advice, the numbers would be much higher.

It’s not just the performance of the Fund; The advantages of death mentioned above should be sufficient motivation for anyone, but an analysis of the costs is also alarming.

Whereas could set a simple stakeholder pension back nearly 1% per year, with access to a straight forward Fund, other pensions that I reviewed recently charged 10% per year.

Cannot be exciting or challenging, but a review is essential.

In many circumstances if you transfer just the authority of the pension fund that the new Adviser will be paid to do the exam with the Commission the previous Councillor was paid for doing nothing.

Poverty to profit: Islamic microfinance – part 2


The provision of Islamic microfinance Mudarabah contract falls under, a participatory agreement in which one party provides the capital (main) and the other (the worker) is used for commercial purposes, in which the profit from the trade is shared according to an agreed proportion and the loss, if any, unless caused by negligence or breach of contract by the worker, is confirmed by the principal. Here are some considerations:

>> The main Bank should not interfere in routine operations of the activity of the worker, even if the Bank is permitted to provide technical advice. The worker must provide regular periodic reports to activity State Bank;

>> Profit earned by a business Mudarabah is distributed among client and worker on the basis of proportion settled in advance;

>> No fixed amount as profit, salary or Commission, could be dismissed in favor of the parties in advance; Islam permits, establishing the profit in percentage terms (e.g. “10% of share your profits with me every month”), but prohibits the fixing profits in absolute terms (such as “give me $ 100 of your monthly profits”), the obvious difference is that the former is linked to business performance, whereas the latter is plugged into anything;

>> In a business running, losses can be compensated with business earnings until the business closes and accounts are paid;

>> scholar of qualified Sharia should be consulted throughout the investment process to ensure that transactions are in accordance with Islamic law.
A Grameen model Islamicized version looks like this:

1. a group of 5 customers the approach an Islamic Bank microfinance investment capital to 5 separate projects.

2. After the feasibility evaluation for each of the 5 projects, the Bank shall draw up separate agreements, explaining the reimbursement schedules and profit-sharing percentages and pointing out the possibility of more investment in the future depending on their individual performance.

3. the Bank invests primarily in 2 individuals.

4. these first 2 individuals repay a quarter of each of their original investments each week for four weeks (scratching your profits in the field each week) until the end of the month that is paid back the entire original investment and 75% of all the profits remain with the individual and 25% of the profits return to the Bank (mainly to finance growth and future Bank operations); in the event of leaks, only what’s left of the investment is repaid.

5. in the second month, the Bank then evaluates the performance of these first 2 individuals and decides whether to reinvest; growing investment size for those individuals with higher return rates to 10%; keeping the size of existing investment for those individuals with rates of return between 0% and 10%; and reducing investment for loss of individuals, where a second round of losses would disqualify them from any future investment, forcing the remaining group to find another partner of the group.

6. Also in the second month, the Bank started investment in next 2 individuals, using the same rebate program and profit-sharing agreement with regard to the first 2 individuals.

7. in the third month, the Bank assesses the performance of 4 existing customers and decide whether to reinvest, using the same criteria.

8. Also in the third month, the Bank invests in the fifth and final single of the group, using the same rebate program and profit-sharing agreement with regard to the previous 4 individuals.

9. the Bank continues this transaction cycle, using the same rebate program, the profit-sharing agreement and reinvestment policy for all future investments.

These simple steps are effective in a rural village in a Muslim country like in an urban ghetto in a non-Muslim, if the client is male or female, young or old, Muslim or not. Size groups, repayment plans, the goals of profit-ability, reinvestment policy, investment duration and other integrals of the transaction can be customized to meet the needs of the customer as necessary.

In calculating profit, the client must provide only three kinds of information: purchase price, selling price and quantity purchased. It is fundamental that from the beginning, customers explained that profitability (and, implicitly, by declaring honestly profits) translates into more investment in the future.

Cholesterol free diet

If we look at and try to search for foods that are low in or free of cholesterol, is not really that difficult a task. A cholesterol-free diet has its origins in the rich flora which mother earth has to offer.

These foods include fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes. People who suffer from heart and sleep disorders should follow a cholesterol free diet. However, it is said that the purging of any specific nutrient the body harmful as its over-consumption. In the light of this statement, a low cholesterol diet is a combination of free cholesterol and cholesterol foods is largely favored.

In terms of fruit and vegetables, three to five daily servings are needed to have the right balance of nutrients and vitamins. Fresh fruits and vegetables are perfect substitutes for foods high in saturated fat and cholesterol. Fruits can include an array of apples, mango, peaches, bananas, kiwi, watermelon, and so many others. Similarly, vegetables such as potatoes (not fried), gourd, bitter gourd, okra and eggplant are few healthy options.

Then comes the turn of whole grains and legumes. From a minimum of 6 to a maximum of 11 people each day of whole wheat bread, whole grains, whole wheat flour noodles, beans, chick peas, bean sprouts, Brussels sprouts, etc, are a better choice, healthier and fuller to keep your stomach happy and free from cholesterol. These are low in saturated fat and total fat and have no cholesterol content in them.

Eat legumes and whole grains can come across as a boring and tasteless. Of course, due to its ‘ healthy ‘ lifestyle, these actually taste food materials and not spicy. To add some flavor, an olive oil or corn oil dressing with healthy herbal base of fennel, Rosemary, mint and cilantro can be used in controlled quantities.

Bread, cereal, rice, pasta and cereals, and dried beans and peas are generally high in starch and fiber and low in saturated fat and calories. They also have food cholesterol, except for some bakery breads and sweet bread products made with high fat, high cholesterol milk, butter and eggs.

So, for fun and not let the patient go overboard with the madness of the foodie tastebuds is safer than indulging in lean dairy products as milk, half cream and half fat yogurt low-fat. In addition, the animal instinct may be satisfied by gorging on white poultry, lean meats and seafood healthier.

How to heal yourself, of heart disease

At the physical layer, the heart acts as a pump to two-way for the circulatory system. As such, it is life that gives the governing body that regulates the flow of vital strength throughout the body. Coronary artery disease is the most common cause of death in North America. As reiterated in my previous articles, traditional medicine has a hard time identifying what causes the disease and why some people have them and others do not.

The traditional view:
Traditional medicine or traditional medical practices today, teaches us that every disease is the result of a physical cause. For heart disease, the cause is commonly attributed to factors such as smoking, genetics, hypertension, obesity, diabetes, high alcohol consumption, lack of exercise and stress. Research has shown smoking seems to be the cause of about 36% of the cases and obesity about 20%.

Depending on what is happening at the physical layer, these causes more identifiable because it occurs in a person’s body. Unfortunately, there’s never a solid and reliable, which can be detected by traditional medicine and its counterparts. Why? Because the physical body is not the origin of the disease and illness, and until you have understood the actual source, the confusion remains.

The body has no power to himself:
According to our traditional thinking, we believe that illness and disease are caused by something wrong physically in our bodies. For heart disease, the physical cause is primarily attributed to high and genetics. But these are not the true causes. Why? Because the physical layer, including our bodies, is the level of the effect, not the cause itself. If this is true, and nothing physical is the cause, what is? In a general sense, is the emotional and mental levels, like all things exist in the mind, before becoming a physicists.

Very practically, the physical body can do nothing in and of itself. Has no power to create anything, including sickness, illness and disease. Power comes from being involved and it seems that the physical layer is the effect layer; It has no power to create. The physical body simply reflects the mental. In other words, our physical bodies are not more than a mirror of what is happening within us emotionally and mentally.

The real cause of heart disease:
As unfortunate as it may be, traditional medicine is seeking the causes of illness and disease in the wrong places. Actually, something physical, such as not smoking can cause a physical effect in the form of a disease or illness. In other words, an effect cannot create another effect, only because it can create an effect. With that being so, because there are similar physical actions or symptoms of people who share an illness or a disease? Basically, it’s because they’re trying to find a way to relieve pain and emotional and mental imbalance which take place within them.

Interestingly, the heart is located practically in the center of the body. If a person is centered, are living from the heart in a balanced State of love and trust. A cardiac disorder is the manifestation of the opposite mindset. This person is fighting the power of life to the point of physical and emotional exhaustion. Often the person with heart disease seeking love through what others do. In essence, the disease is an urgent message from your body to change the perception of themselves.

How to cure diabetes:
As I mentioned in my previous articles, this new paradigm of thinking requires us to let go of the belief that illness and disease is an enemy that is not needed. Everything in our lives is an expression of love or a call to love. Disease and illness, in whatever form, is an invitation for us to love ourselves, because we don’t live for love in an area or areas of our lives. Is designed to take us forward in life, don’t take us back or destroy us.

Illness and disease is a message from our body, helps us to be aware of what we are not aware of. The disease is a specific message that do not allow proper flow in your life; If the flow of ideas, love or your life much. To bring healing, you need to tap into a source of love within you by changing the belief that love can only come from others. Give you the love you seek, and will always be there. Start believing that you deserve love and affection from others and that you are just as lovable as everyone else.

2013 budget plan by Obama and your portfolio

Here’s a summary of what Barack Obama is proposing for its budget fiscal 2013:

1. dividends received by senior employees (over 200 k singles and married couples above $ 250 k) would be taxed at 39.6%, from 15%.

2. The top rate for capital gains I would go from 15% to 20%.

3. the minimum rate for people with an income of at least $ 1 million would be 30%. (That’s what Buffett proposed).

4. Obama wants to interest from municipal bonds which are currently federal tax free (and state tax free if you buy a bond from the State that you live in) to be taxed! Taxed Yes! The maximum rate would be 28%. I don’t think this (see below).

In 2013, there would also be a 3.80% tax on unearned income for married couples making over $ 250 k and singles making over $ 200 k.

So how should invest based on the 2013 budget proposals by Obama if you’re gone?

-In most cases, the rate of tax you pay on dividends might be higher than you would pay capital gains tax. By purchasing this dividend becomes less important.

-If you’re going to sell an investment (apple?) that has appreciated, take the gain in fiscal 2012, not 2013. That’s just assuming you’re going to sell the stock.

# 1 warning: If you plan to leave much appreciated reserves for your heirs, you probably don’t want to sell and pay capital gains taxes because when your heirs inherit the stock, they will automatically get a pass by. For example, if you bought Apple at $ 20 and you plan to give your grandson while you are alive, your granddaughter is $ 20. But if you give your stock at your nephew after will and Apple is $ 500 per day that you die, your granddaughter is $ 500, not $ 20.

-Invest in a Roth IRA, or consider converting your IRA to a Roth IRA. The rate of tax on the conversion may be lower today as it will be in 2013 and beyond.

-I think that municipal bonds will continue to be tax-free. If they were to become passive, the borrowing costs of the municipalities would rise. The investors would get would be superior because it would be taxable.

Bottom line? With the 2013 budget plan Obama’s (and even later) tax rates are increasing. Consider taking some profits now if it fits your goals. Roth IRA is the easiest way to hedge against rising rates in the future.

Please consult with your tax professional.

Interest-rate differences between published rates

I certainly have had my fair share of trying to explain why the fixed interest rates are what they are today, when it comes to finance equipment or any fixed-rate product for that matter. Fixed rates too often for equipment or fixed property loans are compared to the official cash rate or variable rate home honeymoon. That would be ideal for us all, but not the reality. I thought it was time that I put my fingers to the keyboard and put something out there to try and shed some light on everything.

In general, banks will lend to home buyers, credit card users and corporations. Banks of origin their funds from customer deposits, the wholesale and securitisation markets. These funds have a cost and are dependent on a number of factors including the rate of cash, contest, international events, the Bank’s credit ratings and the availability of funds from the wholesale market (both national and international).

Since the global financial crisis (GFC) began in late 2007, the cost of funds banks have increased beyond what was previously considered the norm when it comes to a price fixed rate financing today. This increase in costs is primarily due to fewer investors willing to provide funds for banks to borrow, and that in turn forces the price or cost of borrowing higher (margins of the Bank shall be a discussion for another day).

General Bank bills are the cheapest form of short term (up to 180 days) for financing corporate finance. The bill published bank rate doesn’t include the banking margin. Depending on what money uses to determine that the margin of a bank will apply taking into account factors such as term, the strength of the client and security support. When we look at long-term rates, say, 3 and 5 year money, we begin to look at what is called the Swap rate as a guide to cost of which Bank of funds are doing.

When it comes to finance still equipment we are very fortunate in the way in which banks lend money. With this I want to say with respect to the Organization of financing for a home or commercial property you are bound to come up with 20-30% deposit before the Bank lends the money + all legal and Government costs associated with that purchase.

In contrast, equipment finance is most often financed 100% (i.e. no deposit). The irony here is that, while it is required for a deposit on Finance of property and the property is considered as an asset appreciating the inverse applies to equipment. From the moment that comes a new piece of equipment or motor vehicle, the value drops by at least 20% in most cases and continues to flow until it reaches a stable market value. The risk factor for a bank when borrowing equipment dictates that their return on the money will have to be higher than on a loan owned because of the risk factor. The secondary market for a House is much more lively (less risk) as everyone needs a House, considering that not everyone needs a piece of second hand equipment. If the shoe was on the other foot you would ask for the same yield for these two different types of investments.

Another interesting factor why fares differ between home loan and finance equipment rates, the fact that the money comes from different channels by banks of lending to businesses. Mortgage financing takes place mostly on a variable rate, which is funded on day to day, month to month, quarter to finance programs. Equipment rates, however, are based on medium-and long-term financing programs and equipment rates are fixed-rate and a fixed term structure. This method gives rise to why the rates are higher on this fact alone let alone where the Bank money sources. Interestingly, the site of the Commonwealth Bank currently has a term deposit rate of 7% for a period of 5 years. This means that the Bank would need to pay at rates of around 9% + to satisfy its obligation on that fixed-term deposits and return.

I am constantly seeing 5 years rates for commercial properties advertised around 8.95% fixe score so finance equipment rates in the range + 9% is looking very attractive when all is said and done.
