Online Shopping: 10 Tips For Safe Online Shopping
e-commerce-Problems with Online Shopping

Have you ever bought a product or service from the internet?

Me too.

Some of the reasons why most people are shopping online are: they can buy anything at anytime because Internet shopping is available 24 hours, all the time. 

You can shop from the convenience of your home. You can avoid traffic and crowding at the malls. 

Online shopping is one of the best ways to locate hard-to-find items not available in your local stores.

Whatever you buy can be delivered by mail to your house.

Most online stores and companies provide excellent values and discount prices because they do not have to pay the overhead of owning a physical business that will cost them insurance, employee pay, taxes and more.

VeriSign, Inc. says that online sales recorded during the prime holidays shopping season was about $2.2 billion dollars.

According to a study by Forrester Research Company, by 2010, online sales will reach $331 billion dollars.

More consumers are shopping online today than a year ago. The range of products they buy are many: software, hardware, electronics, digital products, music, toys, e-books, books, programs, DVD, flowers, pets, jewelry, clothes, air tickets, insurance, cars, prescription drugs, comic books, games, gifts and more. 

They are flocking to buy from online bookstores, software stores, online computer stores, target stores, pet stores, liquor stores, drug stores, music stores, furniture stores, fabric stores, the Disney store, outlet stores, surplus stores, discount stores, thrift stores, gift stores, candy stores, lingerie stores, sports stores, video stores, sex stores, department stores, game stores, clothing stores and others.

Be a smart and savvy online shopper. Shop wisely and safely.

Here are a few tips to help you do your online shopping safely.

(1) Shop at the websites of companies that you know and are popular offline.

If you’re not sure of the company, request their catalog or brochure first. 

Be sure they have a physical address and phone, as well as an e-mail address. Call them and speak to a human being first. 

Check with the yellow pages and the Better Business Bureaus to be sure the company is legitimate. 

Read all the fine print and the refund policy before you place an order.

(2) Keep a record of all your purchases.

Most people are by nature disorganized and unable to keep records. Learn to keep records of all your online purchases. This will help you keep track of your spending and shopping. 

Print all receipts or save them on your computer in a folder named “receipts”. 

This will help you locate orders that you placed but were never delivered. 

The more organized you are the less negative online shopping experience you’ll have.

(3) Keep all your important personal information safe. 

Don’t give them to strangers who may call you over the phone or request them by e-mail.

Personal information includes: your address, e-mail address, phone number, social security number, drivers license, age, information about your family. 

Don’t give them to any stranger and, also, teach your children not to do so.

(4) Keep your passwords private. 

When creating a password, avoid using phone numbers, birth dates or social security numbers. 

Be creative. Use a password that is not easy for others to guess, and yet not easy for you to forget. 

Change your passwords often. Use phrases to help you remember them.

Don’t disclose passwords to anyone. 

(5) Use a credit (but never debit) card to make your payment.

Be sure to keep all credit card payment receipts. Check your credit card account statements to be able to spot any unauthorized charges. 

When you buy certain goods and services from some companies, sometimes they will keep billing you thereafter. So scrutinize your statements. If you see a charge you’re not sure of, call the billing merchant and check it out. 

Keep your credit cards secure. 

Avoid making a payment using your credit card on a public computer.

Report any lost credit cards immediately and have them cancelled. Don’t give anyone that you don’t know your credit card number.

(6) Read the return policy before placing an order.

Be sure that you read and understand the return policy and warranty.

(7) Read and understand the company’s privacy statement (or policy).

A privacy statement tells you how and why a business is collecting your information, and how that information may be used. 
You may find the company’s privacy statement (or policy) at the very bottom of the home page or inside their “Terms & Conditions” or “Terms of Service” (TOS).

(8) Use a secure browser and server.

Be sure whatever browser you’re using complies with the industry’s security standards, such as secure sockets layer (SSL). 

This security protocol scrambles or encrypts the personal information you send over the Internet to ensure your transaction is secured.

How do you know if the server is secure where you’re making a payment?

If a Web site is using secure technology, its Web address begins with https and a tiny locked padlock appears at the bottom right corner of the screen. 

(9) Check out a few stores and compare prices before buying.
Look for hidden costs such as shipping and handling.

(10) Use Yahoo Search Engine for all your searches.

Yahoo continues to be, not only the largest online company, but also, the best Search Engine. 

Unlike the other popular Search engine, which keeps companies in a sandbox for many months and refuses to give them rankings for many months, Yahoo is pro business and gives immediate rankings to companies and business.

Their search result is also excellent. That may be one reason why 60% of people online (including me) love Yahoo. 

Also, they have the most reliable and the best hosting service in the world. 

For these reasons, I strongly recommend you use Yahoo to do all your searches.

Happy and safe online shopping.

Expectations can hurt us what not to expect

When we give, it is but natural for us to expect something in return. This is true for any kind of human relationship whether it be friendships, romantic relationships or family ties. There is no escaping the desire to be appreciated, to be rewarded and to obtain some token in exchange for the favors we do.

     But when we constantly give, there are times when the person becomes conditioned to keep on receiving. Every so often our generosity is taken for granted. In some cases, the person even becomes dependent on us. And this is when problems arise.

     It takes maturity and reflection to realize that when people are kind to us, we should not abuse it. In fact, we should reciprocate. For is this not upon which a healthy and mature relationship is based? The principle of give and take is an essential ingredient of any lasting human relationship.

     However, there are people who may be blinded by their ego and may fail to appreciate what others do for them. A proud person finds it difficult to acknowledge the generosity of others because he sees this as an admission of his dependence.

     If we feel that our efforts are unappreciated or that we are already being used, then it is not wrong to stop giving. What is wrong is to encourage other people’s dependence on us. Because if we do so, it won’t be long before we find ourselves being manipulated and abused.

     It takes an even greater level of maturity to not expect anything at all, because the true essence of selflessness is to see that giving is its own reward. By realizing this, we can rid ourselves of any expectation. And by having no expectations, we will avoid being hurt.
The bottom life, treat others as you would like to be treated. Return kindness with kindness. Forgive others as others have forgiven you. Learn from the times you have been let down.

10 Dirty Tricks Credit Card Companies Play

The credit card companies make billions each year in legitimate interest charges and fees, but are under constant pressure from the shareholders to increase their earnings. To make this extra money the credit card companies sometime adopt some dirty tricks to make this money. As the credit card industry becomes more competative, less money is being earned from each client from interest charges and the number of these dirty tricks increase. To protect yourself against these unscrupulous procedures that steal your money we will list 10 dirty tricks credit card companies play to their clients so you’ll know what to expect and look out for. Of course that there are not only 10 dirty tricks credit card companies play to their clients but knowing at least these 10 tricks will help you to not be a victim.

The first one out of the 10 dirty tricks credit card companies play is also the worst of them: not posting your payment the day it was received. This is the oldest known trick: the company receives your payment in time but it doesn’t process it immediately; this delay will bring to the company a late payment fee. This is often due to legitimate reasons, but the policies of many credit card companies support a processing time that is not beneficial to you. A second trick is to make you pay late by changing the due date for your credit card payment. For being late the company will charge again a late payment fee and if the situation repeats for few months in a row they can legally increase your interest rate. The third trick played by the credit card companies is a ridiculous one: you can be charged a penalty fee for not using your credit card a certain period of time. As unbelievable as it might seem, this is a new tactic of the credit card companies to take your money. Another two tricks used are in connection with the client’s peace of mind. Both of them are connected with credit card protection and the fees that must be paid. One of them is protecting you in case your credit card is stolen, lost or used fraudulently. Almost all credit card companies do not charge a fee for this service, but there are others that do. The best thing you can do would be to avoid the latter ones. The second credit card protection fee is for protecting you in case you loose your job or die. For this protection, usually, the fees are too high for the benefit received, but many customers purchase it out of fear.

We are getting now to the last 5 of the dirty tricks credit card companies play to their clients. The sixth trick is designed to work on the psychological plan: the company is increasing your credit limit. You didn’t ask for a limit increase of your credit but the company gave you the possibility to spend more money. This is a psychological trick to make you spend more money on your credit card trick. Another bad surprise is to come back from your vacation and find out that you have been charged more for the amounts spent during your foreign trip. The commission charged for the amount spent outside the country is much higher than usual.

One of the new scams that have appeared in the last years is the card cancellation fee. This fee was adopted because a large number of the clients of a certain bank discovered the extra charges and they rushed all to cancel their accounts. The bank responded immediately by adopting a policy of charging a fee for closing an account. This practice was also adopted by other companies. There are also other scams like penalization for having a big balance or charging credit insurance fees. It is important to know these procedures so you don’t get taken advantage of and you can help put an end to these tricks by giving your business to companies who do not employ them.

Play your credit card right

They’re so easy aren’t they: credit cards? It lands on your doormat, 85.60 x 53.98mm of pure spending power, emblazoned with your chosen design of a Capybara set against the inimitably imposing landscape of the Amazonian rainforest. 

The reason you got the card? It’s got the largest rodent in the world on the front, what more reason do you need! Well, ok, but what is the rate for purchases? Balance transfers? Do you get any rewards for spending on it? Er…

Tut tut. If only you had read these tips before committing yourself …

The first thing you should do if you are considering taking out a credit card is to establish why and to be honest with yourself:

Know thyself
This little maxim is important when considering any financial undertaking, and is especially crucial when thinking about revolving credit. Hang on: revolving credit? Revolving credit is a type of borrowing where you can borrow up to an agreed limit, but without a set term to repay in. What’s more is that you can pay back money and then borrow it again without further approval. Examples of revolving credit include overdrafts and credit cards. The revolving bit? Well that relates to the now outdated practice of credit cards being marketed in a rotating display cabinet (much like those cake stands you see in a lot of cafes and bistros)! 

The thing with revolving credit is you need to be disciplined with yourself. Have you previously used up the credit limit on your overdraft or credit card? Have you been switching your balance between credit cards for years, paying a little off, then spending a little, never actually seeing the balance go down? All the tips in the world won’t change this if you can’t stick to a budget. Consider perhaps another type of borrowing such as a personal loan. Yes you may end up paying more in the short term, but at the end of the loan the money is repaid (if you do this cut up your cards afterwards so you remove the temptation to spend again).

What do you want from a credit card?
Take time to seriously think about what it is that you want from a credit card. You may want one so you can transfer the balance from another card, you might want to have one for an emergency, you might have a big purchase in mind (not a Capybara though – they are controlled animals. If you’re found with one it will be confiscated). 

So, now you know whether you want a credit card and, if you do, what you want out of it. There are many different features, to meet many different needs:

Balance transfers
Most credit cards will allow you to transfer a balance from another credit card, so obviously this feature is suited to those who have previous balances that are on higher rates of interest. Some providers will offer a 0% balance transfer deal for a set period in order to encourage you to transfer. You should use this opportunity to reduce as much of your debt as possible while you are only repaying the money you borrowed, and not any interest. Some other cards will offer a lifetime balance transfer rate which is usually lower than that charged for purchases. With cards offering enticing balance transfer deals there are three things you should be aware of:

Although the transfer rate might be good, the rate charged for purchases may not be as alluring. What’s more, things you buy may then join the back of the queue of debts to be repaid on the card: meaning that you will be paying the debt on a higher interest rate for as long as your transferred balance is outstanding.
Beware. A lot of cards will charge you a percentage of the balance you want to transfer (typically 3%). This shouldn’t put you off in itself; it will most likely work out cheaper than being on a higher interest rate over the term of the transfer deal, but still it’s best to check.
If the card has an introductory balance transfer rate, make sure you are ready to review your arrangements when you get to the end of this.
Purchases
As with the balance transfer, some cards offer a 0% interest rate on purchases until you reach the end of an introductory period. This could be suitable if you wish to make a big purchase, and can repay it quickly during the introductory period. Bear in mind that at the end of the introductory period, the purchase rate on the card will shoot up for any balance you have remaining, as well as future transactions.

Reward/Donation/Affinity CardsIt’s nice to get something back isn’t it? It’s also nice to put something back. Well reward credit cards give you (yes you’ve guessed it) a reward for spending on your card such as points, cashback or vouchers. Similarly a donation/affinity card will give your cause a portion of any purchases you make in the form of a donation. These cards are suitable for those who like to use credit cards to manage their cashflow during the month, and then clear the balance in full at the end.

Standard/Gold/Platinum/Black cardsCredit cards can be status symbols in the same way as an expensive car or a pygmy Capybara. Back in the good old days you could get different, more exclusive cards based on how much you earned. In truth this still exists to some extent, although the boundaries have recently become blurred (with the exception of Black cards which remain only for members of the aristocracy). For the Top Trumps players amongst you Black cards are the most exclusive followed in order by Platinum, Gold and Standard cards. Don’t be bamboozled: the balance transfer and purchase rates remain king no matter what the type of card.

Cash
Credit cards will allow you to withdraw cash. The simple rule here is: don’t withdraw cash using your credit card! It attracts exorbitant fees and interest from the card provider. You should reserve taking out cash on your card only for emergencies. I had one instance a couple of years ago when travelling through Walthamstow. I chanced across an injured Capybara in the road. I took it to the vet who wouldn’t accept card payment, so I had to go to the nearest ATM. Unfortunately a blood transfusion for a Capybara is rather expensive (the programme in Peru to attract donors had met with little success as Capybaras are, by nature, quite selfish). Needless to say I’m still paying it off- definitely a mistake I won’t be making again… 

Foreign Usage

You can normally use your credit card abroad. However, if you do there will usually be a foreign usage charge applied which could be as much as 3% and, if you take out cash as well (haven’t you read the tip above!), then there may well be further charges on top! Having said this, you get added protection from using your credit card over cash if you need to get a refund or replacement, and some providers even specialise in not charging foreign usage fees at all. 

Now all you need to do is make sure you get the best credit card available in the market.

You consider yourself a trustworthy friend, loyal and dependable. You try your best to be helpful and generous to the friends you make. You invest much time and effort in a friendship. You’re always around to listen. Because of this, you’re the person your friends run to during times of crisis. You eventually become the one individual who is always there to help.

But occasionally, you meet a friend who is incapable of reciprocating.

You may encounter someone who will only look for you when you’re needed. But when you’re the one in need, this friend will offer some convenient excuse not to be there. There is always something more important than you. You are never a priority. And even when you’re together, your friend constantly insists on getting his way. You’re forced to follow whatever your friend wants and you give whatever he needs. Your wishes remain secondary.

Despite this, you continue to hope that this friend will realize how well you treat him and that he should give some time and effort back. But this friend never does. In the end, you eventually feel drained. And when your usefulness to this friend has run out, you may find yourself discarded and forgotten.

Sometimes the desire to feel accepted makes a person vulnerable to abuse. This is especially the case with lonely individuals. Opportunistic people will see this weakness and may come to exploit it. If you feel you have friends who only seek you out when they need you, maybe it is time to rethink these so-called friendships. Otherwise, you may eventually end up a discarded doormat.

Ive been there before with a friend who becane my room mate only to not pay rent and wind up stealing from me.

I moved in with my sister but she charged me an absurd amount of rent.

Should I do my own tax return?
Frustrated man in thoughts. Taxes, debts and other problems.

o quote the famous satirist, Dorothy Parker “We hate doing our taxes, but we love having done our taxes”. Especially if there’s a refund coming. It’s also natural to hate paying for things that you believe you can do yourself and tax is one of those things. When you look at a simple tax return, it seems just that, simple. So why should we pay for someone to do it? Well, the truth is, if you have the option to pay someone to do it, it’s probably worth it for one or more of these reasons:

It will cost you money but it’ll save you time

Unless you are a tax law guru (or tax accountant), in order to get the best return you’ll have to have an understanding of tax laws. What you can or can’t claim for. What you need to declare. Then there’s hunting down and keeping track of it all. If you’re a details person or a numbers person, great. But if you’re not, the money spent on a tax accountant will probably far outweigh the stress of not doing it.

The more you know you can claim, the better your tax return

A tax accountant is someone who spends their time studying and dealing with tax law. Getting them to help you with your tax return can improve it. They’ll be able to make suggestions, perhaps they’re aware of deductions you’re eligible for which you may have missed. Of course, you may be all over it and if that’s the case, probably more than capable of doing it yourself. But if you aren’t, you may feel more comfortable with the help of a professional.

When your situation isn’t black and white

If you have a simple situation, great. You’re employed and don’t have any side incomes, then doing your own tax return will probably be quite simple. However, there are areas which can make things a little more complicated and move you into the grey area. This could be that your hobby has now turned into a little side business. Perhaps your self-employed or you have two jobs, you could have even operated at a loss last year. The fact is, there are some situations which will make your tax return a little more complicated. These are the situations that you should definitely put money towards getting the right help and advice. 

You have more than just an income

If you have shares or property, or both, you should definitely consider using an accountant. Especially to navigate such things as Capital Gains Tax and Negative Gearing. They can offer you guidance on how best to navigate tax gain from your assets or how to negative gear your tax.

Your personal situation as changed

Perhaps you got married. Or divorced. Or had a child. Maybe you lost a spouse? If anything like this happened to you this year, you may need help finding the best filing status. Also, as your children get older, tax credits and deductions might expire. This is all age dependent and using someone who understands all the options can prove beneficial. 

The bottom line is, it’s completely up to you. It really depends on what you’re comfortable with and how confident you are navigating this stuff on your own. But in the event that you aren’t completely confident, having a trustworthy tax profession working for you can make all the difference.

How to get more views to your blog

  

Today, I want to talk about how to get more views on your word press blog. Blogging has become more popular than ever. An increasing number of today’s network marketers have at least one blog. In a way, it seems as if blogging has become a sport. The more active you are, the better you become. As bloggers, one of our goals is to get more views on our posts. The more views we get, the more popular our blogs become. Although I consider myself a student at blogging, there are simple ways to get more eyeballs on your work. The information provided will assist in getting the views you seek for your blog.

A good title: 

The first way to get more blog views is to start with a good title. Titles are very important because they are the first thing people see. Headlines dictate whether or not your reader will proceed further into your article. Your title needs to be eye catching and possibly tell a story in itself. 

Original content:

We all know the ole’ saying that content is king. Original content builds kingdoms. Network marketing success blogs require good quality content. Even if your content is not a completely original idea, it should be written with originality. You should include articles that offer encouragement and education. These kind of articles seem to resonate well with readers. Entrepreneurs are consistently looking for ways to improve themselves and their business. Good content that provides ideas and solutions work best. 

Blog syndication:

After you write your blog post, you want to get it syndicated through a social platform. Tribe pro is an excellent place to get eyeballs on your blog. There are a variety of MLM tribes that will syndicate your content so long as it provides value. Many six and seven figure earners have tribes of influence. Submit your RSS feed and integrate videos as well. You can add several links and even create your own MLM tribe.

Social media:

This one is a no-brainer, so I won’t spend much time on it. Hundreds of millions of people are on social media. So it only makes sense to leverage the platform to connect with visitors. You want to post on social sites such as Face Book and twitter. The key with Face book though, is not just posting on your timeline. You want to post in groups that focus on blogging so you can attract more targeted visitors to your word press blog.

Guest blogging and commenting:

I haven’t guest blogged yet, but I will. I have been asked a few times to do some guest blogging and an interview! I learned that guest blogging on sites that attract thousands of visitors is a great way to get more traffic to your site. In addition, liking and giving positive feedback on other bloggers sites, which I have done, is a good way to gain exposure.

In conclusion, the information presented above are great ways on how to get more views on your word press blog. If you would like to post on purpose and profit at the same time(who wouldn’t) my mentor is offering some free training that will assist you to make money even if you don’t have a website.

Blog syndication:

After you write your blog post, you want to get it syndicated through a social platform. Tribe pro is an excellent place to get eyeballs on your blog. There are a variety of MLM tribes that will syndicate your content so long as it provides value. Many six and seven figure earners have tribes of influence. Submit your RSS feed and integrate videos as well. You can add several links and even create your own MLM tribe.

Social media:

This one is a no-brainer, so I won’t spend much time on it. Hundreds of millions of people are on social media. So it only makes sense to leverage the platform to connect with visitors. You want to post on social sites such as Face Book and twitter. The key with Face book though, is not just posting on your timeline. You want to post in groups that focus on blogging so you can attract more targeted visitors to your word press blog.

Guest blogging and commenting:

I haven’t guest blogged yet, but I will. I have been asked a few times to do some guest blogging and an interview! I learned that guest blogging on sites that attract thousands of visitors is a great way to get more traffic to your site. In addition, liking and giving positive feedback on other bloggers sites, which I have done, is a good way to gain exposure.

In conclusion, the information presented above are great ways on how to get more views on your word press blog. If you would like to post on purpose and profit at the same time(who wouldn’t) my mentor is offering some free training that will assist you to make money even if you don’t have a website.

7 Ways to Increase Your Focus and Get More Done

  

The modern way of life is full of distractions. We are surrounded by so many things which can be hindering our productivity and damage the potential. Most of the users are already so used to distractions that we start looking for one after a while.
If you can put a stop to things like distraction and multitasking, your productivity level will definitely skyrocket. In today’s post, I will share some working tips to increase your focus and reduce the distractions.

Planning ahead in the night before could be an excellent way to increase your focus on the following day. Identify the two most important tasks you have to do the next day and write them down. On the next day, do these two tasks before you do anything else and you will accomplish a lot already.

You also need to be careful about the potential sources of distraction and keep a safe distance from them. If possible, turn off the notifications on your mobile and computer. Another proven strategy is to limit your email checking frequency.

You will be more focused when you are comfortable with the environment. Therefore, it should be a priority to get comfortable with the atmosphere. Adjust things like your clothing, seating arrangement, music, temperature, furniture location, document management system etc. Find out which settings suit you best and keep them like that.

If you want more control over your wondering mind, you should practice some kind of meditation. While most people think meditation takes a lot of preparation, which is not true at all. Sitting still for five minutes could be a great meditation too. Start with the basics and gradually move towards the advanced techniques.

Another big step in increasing your focus is to set achievable goals. There is no problem with bigger goals. But you need to break the large goal into small, manageable chunks so that you can accomplish them one by one. Otherwise, you will keep thinking and make plans about the bigger goal, while not taking any actual step to achieve the target.

When it comes to increasing your focus, you can’t ignore the importance of sleep. Depending on your condition, you need 7-8 hours of sleep every day. Some people prefer to sleep less and work more. While that may work in the short-term, they will definitely face problems in the future. They are highly likely to lose the ability to focus completely on something.

Delaying gratifications could be another effective way to increase your focus. Instead of allowing that activity instantly, make it a reward for accomplishing something important. When you have a motivator ahead, you are more likely to be focused and engaged in your work.Bottom Line

So, these were the best ways to increase your focus and get more done. Try to follow as much of this advice as possible and you will be amazed with the result. Let me know how these tips work out for you.
