39 Careless Ways Retirees Waste Money

You’ve worked hard all your life, so you deserve to enjoy yourself in retirement. However, when you live on a fixed income, it’s important to keep track of where every dollar is going and not spend money carelessly. I spoke to financial experts and business leaders to find out the most common ways retirees waste money — so you know what not to do and can make better decisions that enable your retirement savings to last well into your golden years.

A financial advisor can be a great asset when it comes to retirement planning, but make sure you’re not paying them higher fees than you need to be.

“Investment fees can run 1-2% of your assets. For retirees with a million dollars invested that’s $10-20k a year,” said speaker, writer, teacher and financial coach Jillian Johnsrud. “If you’re only getting an hour check-in per year, that’s an expensive phone … Read More

Top 10 Ways to Make Money on the Internet

Advertisement

Unless you’re a freegan and have found a way to live entirely off the grid, you probably need some sort of steady income in order to survive. The traditional way to earn money, of course, is by having a job. You work for a company or start your own, and the work you do earns you money, which you spend on things like a mortgage, rent, food, clothing, utilities and entertainment.

Most people typically work from their company’s central location, a physical space where everyone from that organization gathers to exchange ideas and organize their efforts. But many folks have found ways to make money within the comfort of their own home, thanks to the internet. Some of these gigs are best for those looking to make a little extra money on the side, while others can lead to full-time jobs and big success.

Many web-based jobs require you

Here are 20 easy ways to save some money every day

4. Switch to an exercise pass program. If you love working out, an exercise pass program such as Class Pass is the way to go. By paying a membership fee of $99 per month, you are welcome at many of the best studios in your area. And classes—like cycling, yoga, Pilates, barre, strength training, boot camp, dance and more—are unlimited. This beats having to pay for each studio’s monthly membership or individual class fee, which can add up to hundreds of dollars a month.

5. Host a potluck. The more friends you have, the more money you spend on lunch dates, birthday parties and gifts. Switch it up and, instead of meeting over a fancy dinner, host a potluck and have everyone bring his or her favorite dish. That way, you can save money you’d spend on restaurant extras, such as tax, tip and parking—and you’ll usually have a more

19 cheapest ways to get travel money

It goes without saying that for safety, many like to have a wad of euros, dollars or lire in their overseas wallet before they jet off – in which case our TravelMoneyMax tool will do the job.

However, it may be cheaper to travel cashless and simply withdraw money from an ATM at your destination airport with a top travel credit card. Do this and you’ll benefit from near-perfect exchange rates (which’ll beat the rates offered on exchanging cash in advance). 

However, bear in mind that it may be difficult to avoid ATM fees in certain countries. From our experiences at MSE Towers, we’ve seen ATM fees in Vietnam, Thailand, India, the US and elsewhere – though going cashless may still work out cheaper than taking cash even after factoring in the odd ATM fee.

Remember that if using a credit card overseas, almost all card providers will charge interest

This article was originally published on October 13, 2017.

Real estate may have produced more wealth than any other industry, but people still remain skeptical about entering into the fray. Most think that they need to start with some sort of capital, but that’s not always the case. The one magic power you do need is to be able to find the money, and we’re often not talking much to open up escrow. If you know what you’re doing, you can make money in real estate even if you’re just starting out.

Don’t think so? Take the story of Kent Clothier, for example. Clothier opened his first escrow for $500. All he did was find a distressed home and a motivated buyer and brought them together. Today, he flips over 1,000 properties and manages 5,000 through

    4 of the Best Ways to Earn Passive Income with Limited Time and Money

    Anyone
    who reads this blog on a regular basis knows that earning passive income
    doesn’t actually involve zero effort. In most cases, you need to devote some
    time and energy to setting up passive income streams before they start yielding
    returns.

    For
    example, many people earn passive income by monetizing their expertise. They
    self-publish ebooks or create online courses that share valuable information
    with consumers. However, before the earnings begin, they need to create
    products. They also need to promote them to ensure potential customers know
    they exist.

    This
    sometimes discourages people from creating their own passive income streams.
    Part of the appeal of earning money on the side with little to no effort is the
    fact that busy people don’t have time to boost their earnings by taking on
    additional jobs or gigs. Thus, many people interested in earning passive income
    are so busy, they lack the time necessary

    5 Ways To Build Your Personal Brand At Work

    The idea of being a “quiet leader” has always appealed to me. I was never a fan of colleagues who seemed to brag or self-promote at work. However, early on in my career, my manager told me that if no one else in the company actually knows about my work accomplishments, those accomplishments won’t really count for much.

    Hearing this was a bit of a rude awakening for me. Up until that point, I’d always presumed that my work would speak for itself. I assumed that if I worked hard, the quality and impact would be obvious.

    However, as someone who spent the majority of my career working in brand marketing, I quickly discovered the power and necessity of positive PR on the growth and positive trajectory of products and brands. So it didn’t take long for me to realize that my own internal PR within an organization would have
