Everything I've Learned About Personal Finance in 10 Sentences

This post originally appeared on The Simple Dollar.
It's not really that complicated.
1. Spend less than you earn.
2. If you're facing a pile of debts, make minimum payments on all of the debts but the one with the highest interest rate, then make the biggest payment you can each month on that high one.1
3. Never expect that your "future self" or anyone else will bail you out of your dumb mistakes today and remember that only you can make better choices for yourself.
4. The quickest way to financial recovery is to get a grip on your spending impulses.
5. Life is going to hand you emergencies, so keep at least $1,000 in your savings account for those emergencies.2
6. Be completely open with your spouse about every single dime that comes in and every single dime that you spend.3
7. Buy items that will last for a very long time at the best possible price and you'll rarely be unhappy with them.
8. If your employer offers matching on your 401(k), take as much of it as you can get.4
9. When you're deciding how to invest, remember that past performance does not indicate future returns and focus instead on the fees and expenses.
10. If you have dependents who rely on you, you ought to have life insurance, but ignore any salesperson who tries to sell you anything other than a term policy.
A final "bonus" life and career tip: treat every single person in your life as you would like to be treated, regardless of whether you're in the workplace or in everyday life.
If you can handle all of these things, you're going to be just fine.

15 Ways to Fund Your Holidays without Wrecking Your Budget


15 Ways to Fund Your Holidays without Wrecking Your Budget


Christmas is right around the corner and I’m sure more than a few people wouldn’t mind a few extra dollars in their pockets. If you’re like me than you would love to give your family and friends gifts they’re going to enjoy for Christmas. If you’re tight on funds though this extra expense can be a burden, so what I like to do is make a little extra money during the holiday months that I use specifically to fund my holiday festivities.
One great piece of news is a lot of us already have skills that could translate into extra income that we haven’t explored yet. Also with the rise in popularity of the internet just having a computer with internet access gives you a vast amount of extra money making opportunities.
Now let’s go onto the 15 Ways you can pay for your holidays.
1. Earn Free Gift Cards through Swagbucks
Swagbucks is an awesome little site I discovered a while back that allows you to earn free gift cards for doing things online. The gift cards are from major retailers like Wal-Mart, Target, and Amazon. I personally like the option to get Amazon gift cards as I make the majority of my online purchases on Amazon.

The way it works is Swagbucks rewards you with Swag Bucks for doing online tasks such as taking surveys, shopping online, watching videos, playing games, searching the web, etc.. The Swag Bucks can then be redeemed for gift cards or other rewards. If you’re online a lot (like myself) than it’s pretty easy to start earning rewards.   I have a few friends that have payed for their Christmas presents entirely with Swagbucks gift cards.  Swagbucks.com

2. Taking Surveys

If you have the time there are many online companies that give you cash in exchange for taking surveys. Now these surveys vary on length, topic, and payout and you will be pre-screened to make sure you qualify to take the surveys.  Surveys payout from $0.25 to $25 depending on the length.
Survey Sites:
Swagbucks.com    Also one of my favorite sites for surveys
OpinionOutpost.com  I like them because I get paid fast and surveys are easy
OnlyCashSurveys.com  They have a lot of short surveys that pay $2

3. Find Freelance Jobs on DoNanza

DoNanza is like the Google of freelance jobs.  It aggregates all the different sites you can find freelance jobs into one easy to search site allowing you to spend more time earning and less time searching for your next job.  Searching and posting your service is free.  I have already found a couple jobs on there.  Verify your email after registering to get full access. DoNanza.com

4. Sell Old Electronics on Gazelle

Gazelle allows you to turn your old cell phones, ipods, ipads or other electronics into cash.   Its pretty easy, you find your gadget, answer a few questions, ship it in (free if its over $1), get paid via check or PayPal.  I looked up my old iPhone 3Gs and found out that I can get $37.   Use this link and get an extra $10 any trade ins worth over $25.  Gazelle

5. Sell Your Stuff on Craigslist

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
Go through your home with a box and place items such as electronics, clothes, appliances, DVD’s, CD’s, and anything else you aren’t using and sell them on Craigslist.
You’re probably not going to get much money for your old belongings, but if you weren’t using them anyways they are just cluttering your home.
Every few months I go through my stuff and get rid of non-seasonal things I haven’t used in the past 6 months away. I’ve found that if I haven’t used the item in 6 months, I most likely will never use it again.

6. Sell Your Stuff on eBay


Even though I previously talked about selling your stuff on Craigslist, I’ve written this portion on selling your stuff on eBay because I’ve found that you can get more money selling items on eBay. It just takes a bit more patience.
People on Craigslist are mostly looking for really cheap deals. People on eBay are also looking for cheap deals, but you get a lot of normal consumers who use eBay like any other store. If you have some higher ticket items like laptops, computers, or cameras I actually suggest you sell them on eBay because you can make a little more money. If you want to sell items fast and willing to take a less money than Craigslist is a better option.

7. Sell Your Service on Fiverr

Fiverr is quickly becoming one of my favorite sites. The way it works is you can sell or purchase services for the lowly fee of $5. These services range from having a website banner designed to having someone act as your fake Facebook girlfriend for a week (YES you read that right!).
So if you have a skill like graphic design or can think of a creative service people will buy for $5 than Fiverr might be a great place for you to make money.

8. Become an Affiliate Marketer

As an affiliate marketer you can earn commissions by advertising for companies online. These companies will pay you a percentage of the sales you make or will pay a flat rate for a lead which is usually information such as a name and an email.
A great way to start with affiliate marketing is to create a blog or website on a subject that you are already interested in. By creating the website about something you enjoy it will make creating the content for your site much more enjoyable. Once you have your website up you should find offers that are relevant to your user base. For example if you create a website on Soccer, than you should promote offers such as selling soccer equipment or soccer posters.
Blogging platforms such as WordPress and Tumblr make it easy to quickly set up a nice looking website without any previous tech experience.

9. Have a Garage Sale

I’m a big proponent of selling things online on eBay and Craigslist, but if you have a lot of stuff than it might be a good idea to have a garage sale. This will allow you to sell those things that aren’t worth the effort to sell online for whatever reason such as being unshippable or low priced items.

10. Sell Stock Photos


For all you amateur photographers out there a great way to make some extra money is to sell your stock photos. A couple of stock photo websites you can sell to are iStockPhoto and 123RF. iStockPhoto has a review process that includes a quiz and requires you to show samples of your photography before they approve you as a partner. Once you are approved you will be given 15% of the sales they make on your photos.
If you are into photography I think this is a pretty awesome way to make extra money since you are already going to be taking pictures and doesn’t require any extra work.

11. Article Writing

If you are English speaking and have any type of writing skills there are thousands of people who are looking for someone to write content on sites such as Elance.com, Odesk.com, and GetaFreelancer.com. Depending on the quality of your work you can get paid anywhere from $7 per 500 word article to up to $50 per 500 word article.
Simply sign up to one of the sites mentioned and you will be allowed to view projects people have posted up that need to be done. You can bid how much you would do the project for and if your bid is accepted you will get that job.
Most contractors on these sites will ask for things such as samples of your work, so make sure to have them readily available.

12. Sell Your Used Books

Throughout the years you have probably amassed a nice collection of books. Even if you aren’t a reader you still have those old textbooks from college lying around along with those books you’ve received as gifts for Christmas, Graduations, Birthdays, and other special events. If you are an avid reader than you’ll have books that you just don’t read anymore or have lost interest in.
Here are some sites you can sell those books at:
www.cash4books.net
www.Amazon.com
www.half.com

13. Rent Your Home Out on AirBnB


If you are going to be gone from your home for any amount of time than put it for rent on AirBnB.com. Many people use AirBnB as a substitute for hotels and you can set the dates and price you are willing to rent your home out for.
If you are worried about strangers messing up your home you’ll be glad to know that AirBnB insures your home for up to $1,000,000 for anyone using your home through their site.
This is especially a great money making option if you are away from home often.

14. Help Somebody Learn on BrainMass

This snippet from the BrainMass website explains how you can make money with them:
You’re already an expert in your field. Why not turn that expertise into cash? BrainMass allows you to publish your existing knowledge in eBooks, turn your teaching experience into video form and put those tutoring skills to great use. We’ll help you to monetize the knowledge you already possess by marketing your work to our base of student customers who need help!
Brainmass requires that you have or are working a graduate level degree (Masters or PhD) from an accredited university to sign up as an expert in your site.
Once you are signed on as an expert you can make money answering questions from students and publishing content.

15. Sticking To Your Regular Gym Schedule with Gympact


How would you like to become healthier AND make some extra spending money on the side? The folks at Gympact have you covered. Gympact is a mobile app that charges its users $5 every time they miss a gym workout, then that money is divided up between those Gympact users who did stick to their gym commitments.
You are obviously not going to become rich using this app, but it’s a fun little way to make sure you keep those holiday pounds off and make a few extra dollars.
Get the Gympact app for your mobile device over here: Gympact

Using the Law of Success to gain Emotional Control

Using the Law of Success to gain Emotional Control

"Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy."
Dale Carnegie

Much of what we do is directed by our emotions. Our feelings can lift us up to great achievements or throw us down to failure, we owe it to ourselves to have a understanding of how our emotions work and how to control them. The first step of controlling our emotions is to identify the feelings that motivate us and the negative emotions that break us.

The Seven Negative Emotions
1. Fear
2. Hatred
3. Anger
4. Greed
5. Jealousy
6. Revenge
7. Superstition

The Seven Positive Emotions
1. Love
2. Sex
3. Hope
4. Faith
5. Sympathy
6. Optimism
7. Loyalty


These 14 emotions are the letters of the alphabet to your key to success. These emotions will either write your plan of success or your failure. Each of these emotions are related to mental attitude, which is key to obtaining a pleasing personality, integral to success. You must take control of your mind and what emotions are going on at certain times. If you feel yourself getting angry, stop, think it over and realize this is anger, a negative emotion. Realize anger for what it is, and then let it go. You must master this technique in order to create a positive mental attitude and a pleasing personality. Also make note of the situations that spark these emotions, and act to eliminate them or to seek them out and use them.

Building a desire for success into a obsession and working towards your definite major purpose are the cornerstones of your effort to gain emotional control. Each strengthens the other, and when you reach progress with one, progress will begin everywhere.

Napoleon Hill and Budgeting Your Time (Time Managment)

Napoleon Hill and Budgeting Your Time

"Every person who wins in any undertaking must be willing to cut all sources of retreat. Only by doing so can one be sure of maintaining that state of mind known as a burning desire to win - essential to success." Napoleon Hill


Your attitude towards life determines your attitude toward time. People pretty much fall into two camps on this subject.

Doers:
  • Have a definite major purpose
  • Manage circumstances and resources
  • Examine every idea they encounter before they adopt or discard it
  • Takes risks and assume responsibility
  • Learn from their mistakes
  • Go the Extra Mile
  • Control their habits
  • Have a Positive Mental Attitude
  • Apply their faith in their own success
  • Create mastermind alliances to expand their knowledge and experience
  • Recognize their weaknesses and take steps to correct them

Drifters:
  • Have no Goal in life
  • Are controlled by circumstances and the lack of resources 
  • Flit from one idea about life to the other, depending on this week's fad or what the guy on TV said last night
  • Run from opportunity and blame others for their lots in life
  • Make the same mistakes again and again
  • Do only what it takes to get by
  • Let their habits control them
  • Have a negative mental attitude
  • Never do anything to improve their situation
  • Learn all they want to know from that guy on TV
  • Wouldn't know a weakness if it bit them

Napoleon Hill and the Benefits of Controlled Enthusiasm

Benefits, Controlled Enthusiasm, Law of attraction, Law of Success, Napoleon Hill, The secret,
As you develop it will:

  1.  Increase the intensity of your imagination and thinking.
  2.  You will acquire a pleasing and convincing tone of voice
  3.  Reduce the drudgery in your work
  4.  You will have a more attractive personality
  5.  Gain self-confidence
  6.  Strengthen your mental and physical health
  7.  Build positive personal initiative
  8.  Overcome physical and mental fatigue more easily
  9.  Spread your enthusiasm to others.
How to develop controlled enthusiasm
  1. Adopt a definite major purpose.
  2. Write out a clear statement of that purpose and your plan for attaining it. Include a statement of what you intend to give in return for its realization. 
  3. Back your purpose with a burning desire. Fan that desire; coax it, let it become the domination thought in your mind.
  4. Set to work immediately in carrying out your plan.
  5. Follow your plan accurately and persistently.
  6. If you are overtaken by defeat, study your plan carefully, and change it if necessary. Do not change it simply because you have met defeat. 
  7. Ally yourself with others whose aid you need.
  8. Keep away from joy-killers and naysayers. Stick with the optimists.
  9. Never let a day pass without devoting some time to furthering your plan. Habits require reinforcement.
  10. Keep yourself sold on the idea that you will obtain your definite major purpose, no matter how far away that moment seems. Autosuggestion is a powerful force in developing enthusiasm.
  11. Keep your mind positive at all times. Enthusiasm will not thrive in a field full of fear, envy, greed, jealousy, doubt revenge, hatred, intolerance, and procrastination. It needs a positive thought and action.
Enthusiasm is the natural outgrowth of all your efforts towards success.  You now know the tools in order to build your enthusiasm, begin to build your foundation at every possible moment.

I thank Napoleon Hills book The Keys to Success for this inspiration and article.

Ten Commandments of Business Management

Business Management, philosophy of the rich, power of a team, successful,

"Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it's amazing what they can accomplish."

Sam Walton

In 1962 Sam Walton opened the first Walmart in Rogers, Arkansas. By 1970 it became a chain of stores across the country.

From Walton's Biography, Made In America: My Story, he outlines what he believes to be the ten commandments of business management.

1. Commit to your goals
2. Share your rewards
3. Communicate all you know
5. Value your associates
6. Celebrate your success
7. Listen to everyone
8. Deliver more than you promise
9. Work smarter than others
10. Blaze your own path

Walton firmly believes that "individuals don't win, teams do." When Walton died in 1992 he was the richest man in the world.

Teachings on failure by Napoleon Hill

failure,Law of Success, Napoleon Hill, Think & Grow Rich,Before success comes in any man's life, he's sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and the most logical thing to do is to quit. That's exactly what the majority of men do.

Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once, whether you ready or not, to put this plan into action.

Edison failed 10, 000 times before he made the electric light. Do not be discouraged if you fail a few times.

Every person who wins in any undertaking must be willing to cut all sources of retreat. Only by doing so can one be sure of maintaining that state of mind known as a burning desire to win - essential to success.

Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice and is never the result of selfishness.

It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed.

How much would you think for such a powerful program would cost? I am sure thousands, right?

Quote by Nathaniel Branden on Enthusiasm

Enthusiasm

"What is demanding pleasure? A pleasure that demands the use of one's mind; Not in the sense of problem-solving, but in the sense of exercising discrimination, judgment, and awareness."
Nathaniel Branden

Motivational quote of the day by Nathaniel Branden Enthusiasm does not know defeat! The sales manager who knows how to send out an army of enthusiastic salespeople may set his or her own price on their services. By doing this they can increase the earning capacity of every person under their direction. Enthusiasm then benefits not only themselves but possibly hundreds as well.

Enthusiasm Stimuli

1. Occupation in the work that one loves best

2. An environment where one comes into contact with others who are enthusiastic and optimistic.

3. Financial success

4. Complete mastery and application, in one's daily work, of the Laws of Success.

5. Good health

6. The knowledge that one has served others in some helpful way.

7. Good clothes, appropriate to the needs of one's occupation.

Think and Grow Rich Review

Think and Grow Rich was first written more than 80 years ago, and today is still a widely read and respected book. Think and grow rich has sold millions of copy's and is considered the bible for people searching for financial freedom & success. The books main theme is based on Napoleon Hill's message "Everything your mind can conceive, you can achieve" and the title of the books says the same just in different words:

This book according to Napoleon Hill teaches the thirteen steps to riches. This book also offers many exercises and questionnaires to help you with your own self-analysis and progress. One of the main things I took from Napoleon Hills books and is restated often within Think and Grow Rich, Is that all mistakes are not failures, but are learning opportunities. This mistakes also create a seed for an
equal or greater achievement.

This book is as relevant today as it was 80 years ago, and has made scores of men & woman rich. Napoleon worked for 25 years to accomplish this theory, and it's proven and true. Never give up, and make your dreams become a reality.

Napoleon Hill, The Law of Success, Think & Grow Rich, Think and Grow Rich Review,I have developed my own business and system of financial freedom & success system based on the teachings of Napoleon Hill, Zig Ziglar, & Silver Ravenwolf. I have called it the 3 pillars of Success model.

Are you tired of working for a living? Making someone else rich, with your hard work?

Are you ready to learn a better way? Or you like many others?... still wanting to sit back and go to work every day? Or maybe you hope to win the lottery? That is OK, for most of us.

If your not like most of us! You want you to have a better way, don't you?

I want to let you into a little secret that the world's most wealthy already know, you can't work yourself to wealth.

This is in fact, a simple system to change your life! To start going from working for a living to let your money work for you. This is what is called passive income. You're money works for you and you don't work for your money. You don't need a $100,000.00 or $50,000.00 to start. Can you believe just $27 will start you on your way to a new life?

You, just need the desire and commitment to change your life today!
