Forays of a Finance Foodie

By: Finance Foodie

Last week, I attended a lunch hosted by The Mom’s, a modern motherhood group, and Spin Master toys (best known for their adorable Hatchimals eggs) celebrating superstar dancer / actress Jenna Dewan’s new book Gracefully You.  The event was held at the LES hotspot Mr. Purple, a rooftop bar located in the Hotel Indigo known for its outdoor pool and hip patrons.

Entrance

I had been wanting to check out Mr. Purple for a while now, as my younger and cooler co-workers constantly rave about their weekends at joint, so I thought this was the perfect excuse to visit. I really love the loft like space, the abundance of seating options both indoor and outside (because who wants to stand for hours on end) and the industrial yet artistic feel.  While I probably didn’t get the full experience of the bustling nightlife crowd, there was something

1. Ask yourself if you could be doing better with your home loan





If you’re trying to cut back on some expenses, one possibility is to look closely at your home loan and how much you’re being charged. Interest rates are at historically low levels, so now could be a good time to compare and find a better deal. Analysis of Canstar’s database of over 4,000 products, shows that there is a 4.13 percentage point difference in the lowest advertised standard variable interest rate and the highest.  For an owner-occupier borrower paying back principal and interest on a $400,000 loan at 80% LVR over 25 years, refinancing to that lowest rate could:

Money Laundering – FindLaw

Bob has a cash-only diner downtown that does a so-so amount of business, even though Bob drives a Rolls Royce around town. Turns out, he also operates one of the city’s biggest methamphetamine operations. Authorities suspect his real source of income is something much shadier than selling omelettes and pie at the diner, but they can’t yet prove it. Turns out, Bob uses the diner to “launder” money from the illicit drug trade in an attempt to hide its true source.

Money laundering statutes make it a crime to transfer money derived from almost any criminal activity (including organized crime, white-collar offenses, terrorist activities, and drug transactions) into seemingly legitimate channels, in an attempt to disguise the origin of the funds.

Holding on to money: feeling insecure, or being tight’ emotionally or sexually. Not enough money: sense of being inadequate or failing potency. Dud money: not giving of oneself or feeling cheated.

The hesitation was that it was

Types of Businesses and Forms of Business Organizations

A business entity is an organization that uses economic resources to provide goods or services to customers in exchange for money or other goods and services.

Business organizations come in different types and in different forms of ownership.

3 Types of Business

There are three major types of businesses:

1. Service Business

A service type of business provides intangible products (products with no physical form). Service type firms offer professional skills, expertise, advice, and other similar products.

Examples of service businesses are: salons, repair shops, schools, banks, accounting firms, and law firms.

2. Merchandising Business

This type of business buys products at wholesale price and sells the same at retail price. They are known as “buy and sell” businesses. They make profit by selling the products at prices higher than their purchase costs.

A merchandising business sells a product without changing its form. Examples are: grocery stores, convenience stores,
