Cars are kind of like smartphones these days because there seems to be a new model being launched every couple of years. This is great for new car buyers as they have options to buy into the new class of car with better technology, safety gadgets and better fuel economy. Manufacturers now also provide a lot of options for those that want them in their various models.
The idea of making your money work more aggressively for you is borne out of the need to prepare for our futures. We want to make sure that we have the money we need for our retirement, we want to enjoy our twilight years, and we don’t want to have financial concerns as we grow older. The thought of scrimping and saving while we should be enjoying our time away from work can have a detrimental impact to our mental health. Watching your money accrue minimal interest in a savings account is the least risky way of ensuring that your money stays safe, but it’s also the least lucrative way of making your money work for you.
Macro and micro managing a business are both skills that need to be understood by entrepreneurs. Think about your business plan and what it entails. You’ll have the large objectives set and you will know what you want to achieve by year 5. However for those plans to come to fruition you need smaller plans that will be used to get to where you need to be. This is the difference between strategy and tactics. The strategy outlines the overall direction or thing you want to achieve but the tactics are how you do so. Long term projects are kind of like walking a tightrope for some business owners because a lot can happen in just 1 business year. So if you have a plan for expanding your business in the next few years, the tactics you employ will either make your move a success or it will cause the strategy to collapse. Even if your strategy and long term plan are completely sound, the small steps you make add up and can be make or break.Read more
Even in 2019, plenty of men claim that some jobs ‘just aren’t for girls’. These tend to be careers which focus on strength above all. As such, these people feel justified by biology to back up their claims. And, even we can’t deny that, scientifically, a typical woman does have less upper body strength. That’s a fact. But, it by no means signifies that strength-based careers should be off female cards altogether.Read more
No one wants to feel, or seem, shallow. We all know that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, and hopefully, every entrepreneur out there is aware that quality services and good ethical behaviour are the most important things in any business.
All the same, though, if you really want to make it as an entrepreneur, there is just no getting around the fact that you need to take your professional image seriously. Very seriously.
That may not seem like the most upbeat, life-affirming point to make. But it’s true all the same.
Some people are perfectly happy to sit in an office all day and just get their head down and do some work. But if you’re an extrovert and you like interacting with other people, that’s not the ideal way of working for you. You’ll get bored easily if you can’t be active and social with other people during the work day. A lot of jobs don’t really offer that opportunity and they’re more focused around solitary work, but there are plenty of careers that are built around your ability to interact with other people. These are some of the best career options for extroverts. Read more
Being just a little bit richer, more successful, and attractive are basically what everyone is looking for. Somehow, we think it’s worth just hoping for and dreaming about this without actually doing something to make it happen - because it is, in fact, possible as long as you put your mind to it.

But this is why today we are going to talk about some of the ways you can ensure you get what you should do. Read more
The start of a new year is always tough when it comes to money. Most of us have spent more than we can really afford on Christmas presents, food and other festive delights, and January is hard work. The good news is, you’ve nearly made it. You’ve survived January. Whether for you that meant a month without booze or without meat. A month to get your diet back on track and lose a bit of weight, or a month to take control of your finances, spend less (or perhaps nothing at all with a no spend January) and start planning to save, it’s nearly over, and you’ve made it. Hopefully with some success. Read more
