This is Unexpected!! – Know few sources where you can get money suddenly

extra unexpected moneyThis world is running for money. We are struggling to earn money, doing study to get a good job to earn money. People can compromise for money; they do illegal work for this only. Because we all know that money can buy almost everything. But the above mentioned sources are limited or rather the earning money from these sources is limited. So, in this situation we are dreaming or looking for some alternative ways from where we can expect money suddenly. The volume of money in these sudden sources is not small. So, in this article I am trying to focus on those sources where we can earn money suddenly.

Sell your unused product to earn money:

Running short of money & also need to wait a long for the next month’s salary to come. What to do, here is a solution which will make you organized & also help others to get something in a cheap rate. We always have something at our home which is in unused condition means we have used that once but now those are scrap for us like our old mobile phone(workable condition), Old TV, Old music system, old furniture etc. which we can sell to others as per their requirements in a cheaper rate. Now many e-commerce sites can help us. Where we can post the image of that product & quote a price for the same. This can be viewed by multiple buyers. Here I can personally recommend OLX & Quickr.

Do financial help with higher interest rates:

Those who are in money crisis in your locality you can give them small loans with bigger interest rates. Here through interest you will get some extra money which ideally you will not get if you will deposit the same amount to some other financial organization like bank. So, in this situation you have helped that person in his crisis & also earn extra but this is a small risk because here you won’t keep any doc. In terms of prove that you have given money to this person. So, here only trust factor can work & that’s why I have mention this deal should between those people whom you know very well.

Make Gardening is your hobby to earn extra money:

We all do have some hobbies so fix something productive inform of your hobbies like Gardening. I personal feel that I am addicted in gardening & also got the same inspiration from my office garden. So, Now inform of gardening I have planted some herbal plants like tulsi, alovera etc. & many more. These plants are very valuable for the cosmetics companies. They can contact you & can pay you good amount in return of these herbal plants. Also we can sell flowers to earn money. So, here we can cherish our hobbies & also can earn good money.

Selling painting can help you earn money:

Suppose if you are good in drawing then you can paint some canvas or can prepare small wishing cards to sell. You can sit anywhere at running fair & I am sure people can give value to your creativity & also can purchase your work. The amount which you can earn here might be not huge but this is the token of appreciation of your creative part.

Other unusual ways:

Here you need to depend somehow on your luck. You can buy lottery, if you are lucky enough you can become rich in one night. There are many govt. Sponsored lottery agencies where you can purchase the luck. Or you can go to casino with your friends. Casino is a place where you can hang out & also if luck favors then after playing this game you can earn a lot of money like Mansion Casino.

Whatever the way you applied money is money but in terms of going to the uncertain way to earn money it is always better to make yourself involved in something productive from where you can earn money after every interval. That might be in terms of Job, business or some other creative work.

How to Keep Your Financial Data Secure

Secure your financesYour financial security is one of the keys to a happy life and a good future for those that you love. You, of course, keep your money mostly in a bank in order to keep it safe from thieves. Yet we live in a different world where that isn’t always enough anymore. There are cybercriminals who would like to steal your hard-earned money online or steal your identity and sell it to the highest bidder.

You cannot let this happen, so you should review these tips to make sure your data is as secure as it can be.

Protect Your Email

Your email account is probably the most important account you have to protect because it is likely what you used to create any other financial accounts you use online, and should it fall into the wrong hands, it could potentially be used to get into any accounts you have that contain personal or financial information. And without your email, it will be much harder to retrieve those accounts.

What you need to do is take every single security measure and option possible and maximize the protection on your email, even if it sounds like an inconvenience for you. Know that the inconvenience of identity theft is much, much greater. Make sure that you are using the best possible password and security questions (nothing that anyone can guess).

As a stronger measure, you might even wish to have a separate email account where you can take care of all of your various business and financial accounts and transactions. This way you don’t have to worry about a slip in security with one of your more casual accounts, and you can do easier damage control should something happen. Creating a new email is free and definitely worth the five minutes of effort.

Follow Common Internet Security Guidelines

The basics of internet security are the basics for a reason. There are all sorts of people trying to trick you out of your financial information online, and this doesn’t look like it is going to change anytime soon. Your passwords, as mentioned, are important and thus need care and attention to make sure that they are the strongest available. In addition, you need to have an internet security program, and you need to make sure it is updated along with your operating system.

You should also take great care about which websites you use when you are making purchases or other financial transactions online. Major players such as Amazon, PayPal or any of the major banks are probably okay, but some websites don’t even have basic protection. You shouldn’t trust such websites with your data, and the risk isn’t worth a discount of a few dollars or whatever else is offered to you. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Use a VPN in Public

All of the best passwords and internet security measures won’t help you much if everything you send over the internet were printed and distributed to the world. Yet this is essentially what happens when you use a public network without any protection for your computer. Your computer, when using the public network, effectively broadcasts the data over the network, and anyone with the right receiver setup (they aren’t complex or expensive) can intercept whatever you send without you knowing. Financial data gets no special treatment in this scenario, and thus it is vital to protect yourself.

The best way to do that is to use a Virtual Private Network (VPN), which will connect your computer to an offsite secure server that masks your IP address. This connection is encrypted and protected so that you will effectively have a tunnel that your data passes through (instead of an open broadcast). This means that you can safely make financial transactions while you are using any network because the only information a hacker will be able to figure out is that you are using a VPN, and even that isn’t guaranteed for the hacker.

There are quite a few VPNs that will secure your finances, but be sure to pick out a well-reviewed one. There are some services that are sufficient but won’t give you service that you might require, so you are going to have to watch out.

Avoid the Cloud

While the cloud is for the most part a safe solution to storing personal data, sometimes data is just too important to arbitrarily give to a server you don’t have complete control over. The likelihood is that your financial data isn’t too large and thus can be stored easily on your personal computer. If you want to create a backup, which is a great idea, you can use a protected flash drive and put it in a safe. Should anything happen to your computer, you can load it onto your new system and then put it back in the safe. There are few safer methods than that.

Make a Weekly Review

While you should have a close eye on your finances as it is, there should be a special time set aside each week where you can properly take a look at the data that you are sending out and see if there are any abnormalities and react if necessary. While there are great alert systems that banks provide and you should be using them, there is nothing like a human pair of eyes to notice the things that a computer wouldn’t understand. It doesn’t need to be long, just take fifteen minutes or so each week to make sure that all the numbers add up. You can even do it while paying your bills.

Thank you for reading, and I hope that you have learned something new about the internet security habits and guidelines you should use so identity theft won’t happen to you.

Penny Pushing – 8 Ways You Can Tackle Your Financial Issues in 2016

financial burdenThe statisticians may tell us that the recession has been over for three or four years and that incomes have returned to pre-crisis levels. But for millions of people in the UK, the reality is that times are still hard and money short.

The good news, however, is that while you may have had a difficult year financially during 2015, there is no reason why you can’t make a New Year’s resolution to get your finances back on track in 2016. The situation is rarely hopeless, particularly if you are in work or have some other regular income. Even if you have large unsecured debts, there is usually a way for you to start reducing them and increase your disposable income at the same time.

If you want to tackle your financial issues in the year ahead, then you’re going to need some discipline and some determination to change the way that you may have behaved over the last few years. Getting your finances back on track may not be easy but it is probably simpler than you think:

1. Stop beating yourself up

 This is a prerequisite if you want to reduce your anxiety levels and make a start on tackling whatever financial problems you may currently be facing. It’s human nature to keep going over past mistakes and blaming oneself for silly decisions but what is done is done and now is the time to drop the blame and start concentrating on the future. Learn to accept what has happened and move on, concentrating instead on implementing positive steps to improve your financial outlook.

2. Make a financial inventory

Do you actually know how much you owe banks, mortgage companies and other financial organisations? It’s important to have a grasp of your total liabilities so that you can put in place long-term plans to repay this debt entirely. That means making an inventory of everything you owe – both secured and unsecured – as well as the remaining loan terms and the interest rates which you are being charged on each loan and credit card.

3. Prioritise credit with higher interest rates

If you’re going to make inroads into your debts in 2016 and relieve the pressure you’re under, then you should start increasing the amounts you repay on the mortgages, loans and credit cards that charge the higher amounts of interest. This is the only way that you’ll be able to increase the speed that you reduce your total amount of debts.

4. Make a list of everything you spend for a month

If you’ve got Excel or other spreadsheet software and know how to use it, then this is a brilliant tool for doing this important task. Make sure you list all of your income and all of your expenditures. Don’t be tempted to miss out things like coffees from the coffee shop or the odd treat – you need to be completely honest with yourself about where your money is going before you progress onto the next step.

5. Make a household budget

Once you’ve worked out everything you spend for a month, you’ll be in a good position to set a household budget. Using your spreadsheet program, list all outgoings (with the fixed ones at the top) and all of your income. Let the software work out totals (if you know how) and then calculate whether you should have money left over or if you are spending more than you earn. If it’s the latter, look at the non-essentials on your list and consider what to cut. Think about your food budget – could this be reduced either by using a cheaper supermarket or by cutting out some of the items which might be considered luxuries? The household budget will make it much easier to see where you can save money and divert that into reducing your household debt.

6. Consider consolidating debt

If the amount you’re paying in interest, fees and other charges is overwhelming you, you might want to make 2016 the year when you consolidate all those cards and other loans into a single, monthly repayments. Plenty of companies beyond the high street banks offer consolidation loans and the amount of interest you’ll pay may be surprisingly lower than you’re currently used to. The amounts on offer go all the way up to £25,000 for unsecured loans and even higher if you consider secured lending.

7. When you’ve paid off a card, close it

If you’ve got unused credit available, there is always going to be the temptation to start buying things that you probably can’t afford. The easiest way to stop yourself doing this is to close card accounts when you have paid off the outstanding balance. Always leave yourself one to cover financial emergencies but get rid of the rest and use the money you are saving to pay off further debt.

8. Debt repayment is a snowball – learn how to use it

When a snowball rolls downhill, it not only gathers speed but it grows larger and larger as it picks up more snow. Debt repayment is exactly the same if you are disciplined about it. When you start paying back debt, you reduce the amount of interest that you’re paying and so release money to pay off even more debt and so on. If you hit the loans and cards with the highest interest rates first, you’ll be tackling the biggest source of your financial worries and releasing more and more money to pay off other debts more quickly.
