4. Buying in bulk
The supermarket or grocery usually offers the cheaper product for buyer who want buy in bulk. However, we cannot save money for specific items. Example: Buying a bread in bulk may be not profitable for you. The bread is expired and few days, and you could not eat it.

The Envelope Budgeting: Help You to Make a Strict Budgeting

By using envelope budget, you may decrease some unnecessary spending.

When we receive paycheck or honor from our boss directly, we receive the money inside the envelope. Some people who give money in envelope. People often save the money inside the envelope to protect the air that could damage the money. The envelope also keep the money from bad people. When you let the money up the table, the other person may grab it.

The envelope budgeting is a simple budgeting and cheap. We do not have to buy a software to make the budget. Perhaps this budgeting has been found hundred years ago.

The envelope can be used for budgeting. It helps us to strictly in money spending. We allocate the money into various kind of spending. We have to determine what kind or the category of spending in a month. We are hoped not to spending more money than the money on the envelope.

The strength of the envelope is that it can reduce your spending. Perhaps, you will use cash rather than credit card. You do not need to pay the credit car interest or credit card fee.

The envelope can remind us to strict the money that we spend. When we see the empty envelope, we should not use other envelope to replace the empty envelope moreover our salary.

Use your previous record to list your spending. Name each envelope with spending item. Then, put the money as you have allocate before. The amount of money base on your previous month and your estimation. Example: your budget for cinema is $ 50 per month. Inser the $50 into the envelope. You can make other envelope to keep some money.

Here are the example of the spending:

Mortgages $800

Electric bill $100

Water bill $50

Telephone bill $75

Food $375

Gasoline $200

The weakness of the envelope system is that you need to provide some envelope. The envelope is also easy to damage. You should need envelope that is not expensive. A piece of envelope just 10 penny.

You should saves the envelope to the wardrobe or to the safe place. Keep the envelope far from our kids or other people.

Due to advance technology when people often do not use cash, This budgeting is an old fashion budgeting. However, some software company developed enveloped budgeting software. This software may help you to build an envelope budget but it is reduce the essential of envelope budget. The software do not use cash but credit card or others.

Fundamental Investment for Financial Planning

When we read any article about financial planning, we often meet investment. Investment is an important element of financial planning because it can help us to materialize our planning. Some money that we have invested at the investment will grow. Here are the fundamental investment in financial planning.

1. Match to goal
The investment should match with goal. We can invest fro short, middle, and long term. If you want invest for 20 years next or for your kid education, you may invest your money at blue chip stock or Dvividend Reinvestment Plan. Your money will multiply over many times.

2. High risk, High return
Most investment is risky. You dare to take the risk for the higher return investment. On the other hand, the risk adverser will not get higher return. For example, we will not receive much money by investing our money on certified deposit or saving account. The interest rate is less than a percent while the inflation is high. On the other hand, the stock investor who dare invest at China can get double digit return. Some Chinese stock has hit double digit return. 

3. Portfolio
Share or diversify your asset to various investment. Do not invest at low risk investment or high risk investment only. Put the money in one basket is too risky and it will not make so much money. Example: Your money in saving account or certified deposit will not give you much return whereas your money decrease. The rate may be lower than inflation rate and you still pay the administrasion fee, atm fee, and other fee.
When one of investment decrease, others investment may increase. You will still get benefit even the market is worst.

4. Low cost and Low tax
Find the cheap investment. Notice the transaction fee and other cost when you invest your money. Try to minimize the cost so you will get so much return. For example: the no load mutual fund is free charge.
Consider the tax when you invest too. The investor should minimize the investment tax. You can consult to your financial adviser for it.

5. Pay yourself first
Having received money from boss, you invest the money directly. Then, you pay the debt. The investment will pay you at the future or when you need much money.

What is net worth

Henry whose has jaguar cannot claim that he is richer than Smith whose has no Jaguar. We should calculate the net worth of the jaguar owner and the people whose has no jaguar. Henry lease the Jaguar to a car company for five years. Henry has no right to sell the jaguar unless he settle the lease.
Henry is a manager in a good company that produce microchip. He has one house in the urban area that price is $ 50,000. Henry got much paycchek from the company. He get at least $ 10,000 each month. Henry also save money for his emergency fund. He realizes that he will need when he got sick. He has cash $ 60,000 in various assets such as mutual fund, cash, and other. Henry invest the money to stock market that the value reach a million dollar. He diversifies the investment into various investment such as stock, bond, mutual fund and others.
On the other hand, Smith is a freelancers. He just work when someone need his service. Smith is a financial consulting and blogger. The clients just pay him $ 2,000 a month. Smith receive money lesser than Henry. He just has Honda car that price is only $5,000. Smith is a low profile man. He has no credit card and he has no debt to other people. He buy the small house cash.
Smith also has business. He found a printing company. They serve some company and print some book. He also saves the money to the stock market and he has $ 50,000 gold.
To compute the net worth, you have to sum of all the asset. Then sub it with the liabilities. Sum the Henry's asset house $ 50,000, emergency fund $ 60,000, and $ 10,000 investment equals $120,000 assets. Sum the Smith's assets Honda car, $5000; gold $, 50,000; $ house, $ 25,000, investment; 30,000,  in the printing company equals $ 85,000 equals $195,000. Smith has no debt so the net worth is equals $195,000. Meanwhile henry has debt that he should pay $20,000. The net worth is total asset $120,000 minus total liability $20,000 equals $ 100,000.
The Smith net worth is higher than the Henry. Smith is richer than Henry. Smith prefer to live blow the mean. He are not tempted to buy jaguar though he can buy it. People may respect Henry than smith due its car but smith is still the richer.

How financial goals impact your financial planning

Before creating a financial planning, a financial adviser must ask exactly what is financial goals. With your financial goals the adviser will create your financial planning. Surely the financial goals will affect the financial plannings. Without the goals, you cannot construct the financial planning. Like driving a car, you should know where you are gonna go. A driver must be confused if they should drive without any destination. Having been told the destination, the driver may need the map or a plan to arrive at the destination.

How the goals affect the financial planning:

1. The financial goals will affect the budget that will create. If we want the expensive house but we have little money, we have to make a tight budget. Our priority is to save much money for the expensive house. We may slash some spending for the house or we may find other money for the house. The adviser will suggest us to find more money from other sources.

2. The goals also encorage you to save more money bit by bit. We realize that the our goals is so difficult to reach. The rule of thumb of saving is ten percent of the income. The financial planning may order you to increase the percentage of saving if you have so many financial goals.
The percentage of saving to the income will influence your lifestyle because you should set aside more money to the saving.  The financial adviser may suggest you to tight your spending. Perhaps, you may change your car or resize your house that saves thousand dollars.

3. One element of financial planning is investment. The goals will influence the number of money that you should invest. If the goal is high, they should dare to invest at high risk investment because it could make more money. As consequently, you are dare to take the risk. The possibility of loss is high too.
The portfolio of your investment may contain stock and junk bond. The portion stock could be 90% of the portfolio. Due the economic tight, this portfolio is not profitable too.
4.Retirement fund
The worker whose has financial goal to retire early must save more money. As the life expectacy is greater, they need more money. They will not recieve the paycheck from the boss again.  They can start the business early. The easier business opportunity is the selling. Selling anything that you like and you know.

The effect of the goals is very real. You should be careful to create the financials goals.

How debt influence net worth?

Some people think owe money can increase the net worth. Let Says, Mr Broderick has $ 10,000 in the certified deposit. He wants to increase the asset by owe $ 10,000 from the bank. Mr. Broderick asset look increase. He has $ 10,000 in deposit and he has $ 10,000 in suitcase. Mr. Broderick want to buy the store at the certain city to wide the market.
Mr. Broderick net worth is not increase per se. After get loan from Bank the netw worth is become zero. He has deposit $ 10,000 asset, but he has bank loan $10,000 liability.
The Bank also charge interest rate 5% years so Mr. B will pay $ 10,050 next year. Next ten years Mr. B net worth will be below zero. The liability $10,050 minus $ 10,000 equals $ 50. If Mr. B cannot get the cash from his new store, he must be bankrupt. If, on the other hand, the new store sales so many product, the asset may increase. Let say, Mr. B can make money $ 11,000 from the new stores. His networth wil increase to $ 11,000 assets minus $10,050 loan equals to $ 950.
Not all debt decreases the net worth. For a moment, debt must decrease the net worth. If we can use the debt, the net worth could increase. Before propose the loan, a businessman should make sure that the debt can be useful for business.
Borrowing money for buy a luxorious car must decrease your net worth. You cannot generate financial benefit from luxorious car. The interest rate of lease car is high and the value decreases every year.
In my opinion, the debt is difficult to lift our net worth. The interest of the debt is high so you will difficult to pay it.
Borrowing to userer or mafia is a fast ways to bankrupt. They can provide the cash quickly without guarantee but they will find you wherever you go. They are not shame to charge the high interest to the borrower.

Five Things About Loan

You should know that loan is dangerous

A loan sometimes helps some people that need something like things, car, computer, book, etc. Some people could not pay cash for expensive things because their salary is low.

I think we should not think about loan today because we are hard to return the loan. The employee cuts so many jobs. Perhaps we suffer firing too. Of course, the unemployment needs to open a business for their live. Unfortunately, some unemployment use loan because they have no fund.

You should know some information before ask a loan to others. The information is useful to avoid you from bankrupt. The information is:

    You should know what is the purpose of loan

You should know why you loan to others. Some people use loan for needs like education, house, car, furniture, etc. People must need house for staying, car for transport, college for future. Unfortunately, most people has limited money.

Do not use loan for unnecessary thing like buying a Jaguar, buying a bungalow, etc. You should use a loan for productive things like open a business. Make sure the business could give you return so you can pay the loan.

The global crisis make your salary is decreasing. Our ability to buy anything is also decreasing.

    You should know that you can pay the loan

You could measure your ability of paying the loan. If you feel hard to pay the loan, you should not ask the loan.  A bank will help you to determine the ability paying the loan. They will survey your financial health with notifying your salary, assets, family, child, etc.  For example, your asset is only $10,000. The bank will not lend you for $ 20,000.

If you have no ability to pay the loan, the bank will not give you any loan and reversely. A bank is a profitable oriented company so they will not give you charity.

    You should know what (who) is the creditor

Some creditor asks your guarantee like house, car, land, and other fixed assets. They will seize your asset, if you cannot pay the loan. Bank and other financial institution are selective to give the loan.

Besides bank and financial institution, you can ask loan to people. You can ask people around you like parent, family, friend, etc. They may be kind creditors. Most of people will not charge you with interest and other cost.  Some people offer you with soft loan that does not ask you with interest and cost. My Grandpa said that some people give you soft loan without returning obligation. You can return, if you could get the profit.

Borrowing with people is sometimes easy. If you could not pay the loan, you will break the friendship and fellowship.

    What is the loan

Financial institution offers various loans like personal loan, secured loan, unsecured loans, mortgages, auto loan, equity loan, etc. the loans has different characteristics each other. Mortgages is for the borrower who need house, auto loan is for the borrower who need auto, etc. we cannot use auto loan for house financing and reversely.  The types of loan i.e:

Mortgage loans: a loan for buying house or building

Personal loan: a loan for buying something

Auto loan: a loan for buying car

You should check what loan that fits on your needs. You had better ask soft loan to the financial institution. It will light your loan payment.

    The cost of loan

You should consider the cost of loan. Some financial institution set high interest for your loan. The higher loan will make you difficult to pay it. If you postpone the payment, the interest will grow over many times.

Financial institution also provides fixed rates and floating rates. A Fixed rate is the rates that set stable for example 4 % a year. The financial institution usually set higher interest to fixed rate than the floating rates. A common people think that fixed rate is cheap than the floating rate. In reality, fixed rate could be a cheap cost, if the Fed rate is down.

Besides interest, you must pay some fees like origination fee, administration fee, underwriting fee, appraisal fee, credit report fees, and processing fees.

Thanks for internet that helps us to work online and make money online. We can make money by making business presentation for other people. If they like, they may pay you dozen or thousand dollar. The company can pay less than hire some employer. For the self employed people, they may receive more or less revenue, depending on their project. When they got abundant project, they may receive more money.
Someday, Company will employ freelancer than employer to cut the company expenses.  In future, the company just pays the salary without pension fund, health insurance, and others.
As a freelancer or self employed, they may receive uncertainty revenue or variable income. Sometimes they receive dozen dollar or sometimes they receive nothing. To create budget for freelancer or self employed, they may calculate yearly income. Find the average of your income by dividing income by twelve.
Though you have no fixed income, you should allocate your some expenses. List also that you expenses monthly that you have expenses. Compute grocery food, water bill, electric bill, and cable bill, and others.  The spending side is relative fixed than the income. You must adjust the average of your income to the spending. Do not spend more than you can earn or you will borrow money to cover your high spending.
As a freelancer, we can estimate when we receive the income base on last year experience. For example, the auditor will receive abundant money in March because the jobs or project is abundant in March. There are so many companies that find audit service. Do not use the money for spending only. Some people may spend the money for useless gadget whereas use it wisely and you can put it at emergency fund that you can withdraw it whenever you need money.
In my opinion, emergency fund is very important for the people who have no fixed income. They can use it whenever they have no jobs or project. I think they are better to provide at least six month of your monthly spending. Increasing it double is also wise decision.

Why you need to increase money when retire

When you retire, it does not mean you can feel free. Perhaps there are some money that may harm you. Here are the cost that may harm you:

1. Maintenance the house
After you stay for twenty or thirty years, your house may damage. Perhaps the rain has damage the roof. Surely, you have to improve it or your house will break. The maintenance is not cheap, you have to pay the roof and the repairman service.
Some house needs improvement in the wall, the window, or others. If the retire want the best material, they should dare to pay more.

2. Kid Education
If you have still young child, you should fund the kid. Your kid college fee may need your money. Surely, you cannot ignore your kid college or you will need money to care them. For example: If they do not pay the college, they will stop to study. If they stop study, they cannot graduate the college. If they cannot graduate the college, they will be difficult to find jobs. If they have no jobs, you must help your kids to fulfill the daily necessity. Surely, you have other option to expel your kid from your house. It is your choice .

3. Health
Some sick retire may spend so much money for medical expenses. The young who do not keep the health will get so many diseases in the old time.

4. Hobby
After retirement, some worker focus on the hobby. They use the severance to buy collectibles such as coin, stamps, painting and statue. A piece collectible is hundred thousand dollars. The crazy collector may spend the money for it whereas the real value of the coin is just dozen thousands dollars. The are tempted to collect the coin that is not important. Perhaps they think that the collectibles will generate money from them.
The maintenance of hobby is usually expensive too. A collectible do not need expensive maintenance but caring pet needs high cost. Example: Cats need the expensive food. My brother has six cats (one mom and five kitten). He needs $200 a month for cat feed, not included cat sand and vitamin. My brother also do not bath the cat to pet salon. He can bath the cats alone. Fortunately, the cat is health. We do not have to ask veterinary to cure the cats. In my country, the veterinary cost is not expensive just $ 10-$20. I believe the cost of veterinary is more than $ 100 in United States.

5. Child trouble
Perhaps your child owe some money to mafia. Surely, you should pay the debt or Mafia will kill your child. As a parent, you will not let any people hurt your child.

Four Financial goal mistakes

Some people cannot reach the financial goal whereas they have written it in the book or computer. The unreachable financial goal could happen because some mistakes in writing the financial goals.

1.The financial goal is vague
The people often write that the financial goals is wealth but the wealth definition is so wide. Each people has different opinion about the wealth. The homeless think that the wealth people is someonew whose has a comfort house. The small house owner think that the wealth people is someone whose has house and condo.

2. The goal is unrealistic
The ordinary clerck set the financial goals is to have an airbus aircraft. This is unrealistic goals, the man must be a dreamer.
The ordinary should think as the common people. Their salary is enough for house, kid education, ordinary car, and others. They also need to consider the medical and the retirement.
They can fits the financial goals with the money they have own or salary they have. How much the amount money that can they save in a month?

3. unmeasurable
The goals is to own the house but the goal does not describe the house. The goal should describe the house well. Example, the house price is in the urban city near the centre of city. The house in city center is more expensive than the suburban house because the land price is very expensive. The unmeasureable goal make you difficult to allocate the money.

4. Decrease the goal
Evaluate the goal is a must but decrease the goal is a mistake. When you have a realistic and reachable goal, you do not have to change the goal.
Example: Last year, you have write the financial goal about saving $ 100,000 for house. Due the downturn economic, you change the goals. you decrease the saving to $ 75,000. The decreased goal make you lazy. You do not find the alternative way to reach the goal.
Be creative to reach the goal. Find other income source to reach the goal and do not depend on paycheck every month. You can buy some asset such as land, property, vehicles, and rent the assets. Alternatively, you can invest to the profitable investment. 
The financial goals is an element of financial planning. Making a msitakes in financial goals will influence the financial planning. Carefully to make the financial goals for your life. You can consultate to the financial expert about your financial goals.

What is Liquid Net Worth mean?

Liquid net worth is the diferrence of liquid asset to the debt or liabilities. The liquid net worth compute how much cash that we can spend. The liquid asset is very important for our life. We need cash to buy food or beverages. If you go vacation to underdeveloped country, some cafe may not receive your credit card. They just need cash. Therefore, you should change your money to the destination local currency.
Beside paper money and cash, there are some liquid asset that you may have. In your country, the suppermarket still receive your debit card. You can use it to buy meat, vegetable, cereal, milk, for your daily necessity.
When you go to cafe, you can also pay the food and beverages with the debit card. Surely, your asset will decreases if you often eating out.
Even a company need liquid asset for buying inventory, buying raw material, paying the salary, paying tax, and others. The company is impossible to pay the employee with table or car. The employee will not receive the office inventory but they just want cash.
The lack of liquid asset can disturb the company operational so the man does. A health company must have a good liquid net worth. 
The money that you put in investment is also liquid asset too because you can cash the money easily. It needs few hours or second to cash the asset. When you need money, you can ask your broker to sell the stock. Surely, the stock price is same with the market value that day. You can either win or loss in selling stock that day.
Though the investment is a liquid asset but we cannot predict the value of asset like a cash. Today, our stock price is $ 1,000. The next days, the price might increase or decreases. Beside stock or equity, the liquid asset from investment are non-IRA mutual Fund, ETF, and others.
The other liquid assets is precious metal such as, gold, silver, platinum, and paladium. We can sell the metal at jewelry store or online store such as Amazon and eBay. The precious metal price is stable unlike stock or other capital market investment. The best investment metal is precious metal bar.
To calculate the liquid net worth, you add all the liquid asset. Then sub it with your debt. It is good when you have a positive liquid net worth. If, on the other hand, you have negative liquid net worth, you need to add the liquid assets.

Five Elements Financial Goals

The Financial goals is an essential element in financial planning. The goals should have at least five element or ingredients. Here are the elements:

1. Create wealth
The aim of financial goals is to make the people wealth. They can create wealth with some ways. Most people prefers to work for the boss. They can shows the boss that the company deserve to pay they more. They can choose any company that promise high salary,
Some other prefers to open a business due the business can make more money than working as an employee. Some of them are success in business.
2. Maintenance wealth
If you nave reach the wealth, you have to maintenance it. Manage the money that come from your boss or the business well. The money that come to you or cash inflow should be balance with the cash outflow or spending. List the spending for the next month completely. The spending must be lower than the income so you can invest the money or save the money.  
3. Increase wealth
Our jobs is not finish when we have reach the wealth. You should not satisfy when you just get $ 30,000 a month. You can also increase the money to a hundred of thousands. The employee can ask the boss promotion or the business man can add a new store so they can generate more money. A business man can try other business. Example: They can open a car workshop.
4. Protect wealth
Some people may protect the wealth with insurance. The life insurance can help the family survives. The health insurance can protect from hospital fee that is very big. The sick will not disturb the wealth again.
I prefer asset allocation than the insurance, due it is cheap. In asset allocation, we do not have pay the premium. We alone determine to put the money to various asset. Do not put your money at financial asset only such as stock, bond, mutual fund, derivatives, and other. You can put your money to real asset such as land, property, and else

Financial Planner for 50’s : Preparation to retirement

When we reach 50, we may need so much money. Our Child may need education or college fund. It is not an easy task. The fifty should provide the education fund for the kid

Adjust the portfolio
The fifty often shift the investment to safe investment. They replace the stock with low risk bond. They do not want to gamble with their money. If they loss in the market, they do not know to change the money. They afraid their house will loss to cover the investment loss.
The blue chip stock or defensive stock may fit with the fifty investment due it generate dividend for the investor. The blue chip company is also stable, facing the tight economic.

Resize the house
When your kid has gone from your house, you may need to resize your house. You do not have to own a big house that may bothered you. You must be tired to sweep and peel the large floor. The cost of small house is also cheaper. You do need to make much maintenance to the house.

If you have much money, you can decide to retire at the fifty. In my country, the government will fire the public service who has hit fifty five except the teacher, lecture, nurse and doctor. The government does not want to employ the old man that is less productive because it load the government budget.
Some company may fired the worker who has hit fifty five.

Find other jobs
If you work at the office or company that need your power, you need to move to other company. The fifty must decrease the activity to keep the health. The fifty five must not be strong as young man. If they got sick, they must be decrease the activity.
If you have a sign that the company will fire you, you have to prepare yourself. Find another company that want use your service and skill. Alternatively, you can use the severance from the company to start a business. Perhaps, you have some idea about business.
In my country, the government organize workshop to help the retire to get some business knowledge such as farm, small business, and others. Some retiree can build a business after they quit from the jobs. It is better than do nothing. An oldman may still work to make money.

Important liquid net worth in your portfolio

A traditional man invest the money to crop and land. They do not recognize saving account moreover the stock or mutual fund. When he need to finance the kid, he has no money. He has no choice to sell his farm crop. Unfortunately, there was no one to buy the crop. Finally he borrow the money to the usurer. The amount is below the farm crop. The usurer charge high interest to the farmer. The farmer cannot pay the interest; as consequently, the usurer seize the farm. The farmer asset.
From Illustration above, we can learn that the liquid set is very important. The lack of liquid net worth make the farmer loss his crop farm. He has made mistakes by invest the money at the land only. If he had few gold bar, He would not have to borrow the money from userer. He can sell the gold bar to the jewel shop or pawn shop.
The college will not receive the farmer land as the college fee. They just want cash . 
The liquid net worth is a way to maintenance your emergency fund. The farmer has no emergency fund so he must borrow the money to the usurer. The farmer supposedly earmark the emergency fund before the kid enter the college. I cannot blame the farmer because he do not know about finance.  The emergency fund is contain liquid asset only such as cash, saving account, non IRA mutual fund, marketable securities and precious metal.
The liquid net worth also ensure the balance of portfolio. Our asset must be diversified either liquid or illiquid asset. The lack of liquid asset can influence the illiquid asset. Like the farmer, he must sell the crop whereas the crop is the only asset. On the other hand, having the liquid asset only is not good too. You cannot collect the return from illiquid assets.

We know that recession make us difficult to make money, however, there are some benefits in recession time. You can use it to make you wealth. Here are some benefit in recession:
1. The interest rate decreases
The government want the people to work again.  They do not want people just saves the money and wait for the interest. They decrease the interest rate so the business can borrow the money to widen the market. The company will need some employ to operate the company. Surely, the unemployment rate will decreases after the government decreases the rate. 
2. There is an investment opportunity
Though the stock has hit the bottom, the stock might rise up again. Today, the stock price is very cheap. You can buy the stock for long term. At the end of the recession, the stock price might go to the ceiling.
Do not buy all cheap stock. Carefully analyze the stock that will give you so much money in past. The fundamental of stock sometimes reflects the stock.
3. The low tax
At recession time, the government often cut the tax so the employee can bring more money to home. The government try enlightening the citizen load. The businessman can get more income too.
4. cheaper product
With the low tax and interest, the producer can decrease the price. It is a good idea, remembering the people just have little money.They hope more consumer buy the product so they can generate more money.  For the consumer, they can slash the budget for daily necessity. They can save the excess money for other budget purposes.
5. Cheaper property
Due the mortgage crisis, there are some house are seized by bank. The owner cannot pay the mortgage so the bank sell the house. Unfortunately, the demand of house is low due the downturn economic. The bank should sell the house fast or they loss. That is why the bank offers the house cheaper. If you have so much money, you can buy some property. Someday, the property price will increase.
The land is also good for the investment, due its stable price. Someday, a developer build a condo or mall above the land. Surely, you will get profit over many times.

The budget for the worker who has no field income

Not all people can receive salary like people who work for the company. Sometimes, they get money each three month. For example : The farmer who plant corn, sorghum, paddy rice can get money after harvesting the cerelia. It need at least three month.
Due advanced technology, some surfer prefers to work as the freelancer. They can get some project on internet. They will be paid after the project has done. Sometimes the employer does not pay them because they do not satisfy with the project or they may fraud you. They said that your work is bad whereas they use your work.
As the freelancer, you have uncertainty cash flow. Therefore, you have to create a budget that is specific for instable income. These are the steps:
1. List all expenses
The freelancer must have expenses too though they cannot make money every month. List the fixed spending such as debt, mortgages or house rent, income tax, insurance, food, and else. Do not forget to list semi fixed spending such as electric bill, heat bill, internet bill, cable tv, cloth, and so on. Sum all of  the month spending.
2. Sum the income that you might receive next month. You may get the benefit from service fee, royalty, consultant fee, and others.
 Alternatively, you count the income that  you receive last year than divided by 12. It can smooth your revenue.
Do not list the income too optimistic. For example, you will receive hundred percent of your project that you have done last month. Some boss may pay you next month but some other may not pay you. Some client want to pay you but they want to pay it next month. You have to compute the income carefully.
3. Compare the income with the spending. If the income is higher than the spending, you can allocate the excess to the saving or investment post. You can also buy something if you need it.
If, on the other hand, your spending is higher than income, you need to reduce the spending. Alternatively, you borrow the money from other. By borrowing money, you can fulfill the daily necessity for temporary. It is not good to add the debt, remembering the high interest that you should pay. The better ways to make your budget balance is reduce the spending. As a freelancer, you need to trim down any spending due you do not have fixed income.

Financial Advices near retire

Some employee are worried with retirement. They worried because they will not receive the paycheck from the boss anymore. For employee who use to receive the money from boss, it must be difficult to retire.

1. Calculate the entire of income after the retirement. Surely, you will not receive the paycheck again but you may other source income. You may build a small business that can generate hundred or thosand dollars a month.
Some retirement may decide to work as freelancers. Estimates money that you will receive each month. Do not record the freelancers income to optimistic because the freelancers income is unpredictable.
Having investment can make your life comfort. Also estimates the money from stock, bond, mutual fund and ETF. Consider the recent economic condition recently.
2. Calculate the spending
You can estimate the spending when you retire. It is not difficult to calculate the spending if you used to track your spending. We can just make adjustment for the spending. Sometimes we should delete the spending post or add some new spending.
3. Where place that you will stay
The retiree prefers to stay to suburban where they can breath fresh air and far from noisy. The place where you live can affect your finance too. 
Living in suburban is cheaper than in the city.

People who near retire need to adjust the portfolio. You are not young again to cover the high risk. Shift your investment to safer investment such as mutual fund, blue chips stocks, and others. Some experts says that the people near retirement can invest at 30% grow fund.
Invest at bond is not good investment due the low interest rate. The bond has risk too.
6. Open a business
In my country, the government offers the workshop for public service who approach retirement. The government hopes the public service can open a business too.
In my opinion, an employee approach retirement must be difficult to build a business because most employee has no experience in business.
A business is a risky activity, meaning we can either win or loss. Not all people can make money from business. However, the employee may try it to make money.

How to increase net worth

People try to increase the net worth that depict the wealth. Net worth is the difference between the assets and the liability. A rich man may not have high net worth if he or she borrow money to buy asset. Off course, the high debt makes the people or unwealth. Example, Mr. Jordy has luxorious car, and big house but he lease the car. Each month, he has to pay two hundreds dollar while his salary is only $ 2,500. Meanwhile, his neighbor Mr Jones has no car. He just got $ 1,000 from the business but he has no debt. He has paid the house previous years. Though Mr Jones salary is lower than Mr Jordy, Mr Jones has higher net worth.
The higher net worth, the more rich people. There are some ways to increase the networth:

1. Increase the asset
This strategy is good for people who cannot reduce the liability side. They should work hard to increase the asset side to balance the liability side on the right.
Increase the cash stream by working for other company, opening a business, selling stuff at internet, selling the stuff at the garage, and so.
You can also increase the house. Buy some house and hire those house to the renter. The renter can pay the rent expenses each month or each year.
Beside buying house, you can also buy other aseet to keep your value of money. Buy some productive asset to increase your networth. Some plantation or livestock can make you money. The plantation can produce fruit and cereal and you can sell it to the market.
2. Decrease the liability
This strategy is fit for someone who cannot increase the asset. They have to decrease or reduce the debt so it can lift the net worth. Try to decrease the useless liability such as plasma tv, luxorious car, and other.

Some financial plan as to diversify the asset to various financial assets or real asset. When the economic tight, they can buy more real asset such as plantation, cattle, chicken and others.
We need to set up the retirement when you have no long work. It can guarantee you to get cash stream when you have no salary. The financial planning suggest as to set apart of our salary for retirement. The amount of money that you save at the retirement fund will increase. It because the investment generate the revenue. If you have no retirement fund, you can invest directly to the some company. In future, they may fulfill your necessity someday.

Golden Rule for Financial Prosperity

Every world citizen wants to financial prosperity. They try to work hard to achieve a financial prosperity. Here is the golden rule of financial prosperity:

1. Stream multiple incomes
The Salary or paycheck that you receive from your boss may be not enough for you. You can find other source to support your living cost. Some employee may find side jobs that they can do after arriving home. The blogging may be also a good ways to stream few dollars.
There is trend in my country; the younger employs prefer to stop working as the employer.
2. Shelter
People who are unable to own the house must be uncomfortable. They have to hire the house or apartment to other people. If the owner expels you from house, you can do anything. They have the house.
In my country, some rich man proud for their much house. They buy so many houses at different place. They rent the house to other people.
3. Vehicle
In Java culture, a man should have a ride. That is why the motorcycle is very salable in Indonesia where the most Java lives at there. They often use motorcycle leases. We just need $50 for down payment and we can pay the residual of the credit on three years. Using motorcycle is very economist. You just need a liter of gasoline a day. However, the motorcycle is high risk. Over 60% traffic is caused by motorcycle.
Having a motorcycle may be not enough for you. A good cheap car can bring you to office. You do not have to buy a luxury car though you have million dollars in your pocket.
4. Avoid debt or loan
A man should not ask the loan or borrow money from others especially consumer debt such as vehicle, TV, and others. If you want borrow to growth the business, you can consider it.
My business guru refuses the loan proposal of his student that require loan. He said that the student should sell the asset that the student had. He wanted to borrow the student if the student has no anything.
The student must be disappointed with my guru but he did what the guru said. He sold his asset such as motorcycle, cell phone, and others. After three years, his business has grown. He has a good car.
From this illustrative, my guru want to teach that we should avoid debt.

Why people fail to reach financial freedom

They have good jobs and they have much saving. They also contribute to retirement fund. They have done what the financial experts suggest. However, the people cannot reach the wealth or financial freedom. How about people who have no jobs? They must be suffered.

Here are some reasons why they fail:

1. Cannot get the right jobs
We live when the high unemployment rate is so high. The opportunity to getting jobs is low. Some people prefer to open a business rather than waiting the office asks them for an interview.
For unemployed people, they are difficult to save or invest because they have nothing. Some of them depend on the parent gives or they become homeless. They hope from people bless in street.
2. Adaptable
I saw so many businesses can adapt no matter the regime who lead the country. They are adaptable to any business condition. Either communist or democracy government, the businessman can earn high profit.
As the individual, we should be adaptable with the economic situation. The high inflation does not affect this kind man. He or she may replace the investment or saving that can earn profit in the inflation. They will change the business core when the inflation is very high.
3. Marketable skill
While some doctor cannot generate money, a teenager can generate thousand dollars in a month. In my country, there are so many young writers who have published dozen books. The young writer usually writes teen fiction.
If we have a marketable skill, we will not starve. Though you have no jobs, you can sell your skill to the company or other people.
Find that skill that only few people masters it. The people will find the people with skill.
4. Has no planning
Most people have no planning where they go. They are difficult to reach financial freedom because they do not know what they should do. They may be a high paying employee.
Set your planning today. Let say, you want a master degree or real estate for next five years. You will be motivated to gain the money. Set some part salary for master degree and real estate. 
5. Destiny
I do not blame the God that has made people poor. The man could not change the destiny no matter how hard they try. However, you should work hard to reach financial freedom. There are so many opportunity in the world. Do not be desperate to work until you get what you want.

How to avoid personal finance crisis

The uncertainty global economic is increasing. The Greek debt crisis has influenced the world economic. Some Europe country also suffer debt crisis such as Portugal, Italy, and others. The crisis may affect your personal finance especially the investors who invest the outside. They will loss:

1. Pay your debt immediately and do not propose another debt
Set aside your salary to the debt expenses. If you have more money, you should settle the debt immediately. Do not ever let the debt hang your neck.
The mortgage has caused some people poor because they cannot pay it. The credit card can cause the financial crisis. Some Korean people in financial crisis due to credit card. We have to better throw the credit card now.
2. Not dependent on your boss, your parent, you brother and your sister
In economic tight when the company may fire you, you should find other jobs to fulfill your basic need. You must be able to predict whether the company wants to bankrupt. If they late or do not pay your salary for month, you should be ready to find other company or other office.
Some people feel comfort with the parent. They think the rich parent will support him or her forever. That people must be unwise. If the parent needs more money, they should payback the money soon.
3. More save
It is difficult to save more when the good and service price multiply. However, you should save more to anticipate the crisis. Saving money does not mean we save the money at bank or certified deposit. This investment is not profitable today. Saving at bank may guarantee your money but it cannot protect the value of money.
That is why, people save their money at gold or silver. The gold and silver price is skyrocketing at last year. I am also worry that people will hunt the gold so the price will be unreliable.
4. Emergency fund
The emergency fund can help you to finance your living cost in short time or six month. It depends on the amount of emergency fund. This fund helps some unemployment while they cannot generate salary. The unemployment must need transportation cost to apply new jobs. They also need paper and envelope for applying a position in the office. 
5. Find some free
There are some coupons in internet or newspaper. Use the coupon to cut your spending. You may just get a gallon of milk, a slice of pizza, a con of ice cream but it can save few dollars.
6. Change your lifestyle
The economic is tight, you have to change your lifestyle now. The generic product is better than the brand product now for you.

Financial Advice for teenage

A teen also needs financial advice too even they have not yet generate money. They may not know about finance or money because they have no jobs unless special teen who work as the artist or celebrity, such as Justin Bieber. Though the teen has no paycheck or salary, they should manage their money well. The parent should advice the kids so they can manage money when they grow up. Here is the financial advice for teen:

1. Budget
A teen that have able to calculate the number and graduate from mathematics subject must be able to create a budget. They can use a piece of paper or they can use spreadsheet. I believe the teen spending is not much as the mature spending. Perhaps their spending is just transportation cost, lunch, toys, and others. Most teen spending is paid by their parents. 
Remember what you spend last month and what will you spend next month. This is not difficult for the child to record the spending.
2. Frugal living
Do not ask your mother or father to buy the expensive gadget and toys like your friend? Your friend father may be a success business that has million dollar in stock while your father is just a clerk. You just need a simple phone to connect with your friend or you may need a notebook.
As the teenager, you do not need own car. It needs service and maintenance. You can use bicycle to go to school or the school bus.
3. Saving
Your mother gives $ 100 per month but you do not spend the entire of money. You do not need to back to your mother. Keep the excess cash to your cash box. You may need the money when you grow up or you can collect it buy games, software, baseball card, and other.
It is better to buy the toys with your money than asking to your mother.
4. Try to find little pennies
In my country, a couple kids make English course games. The games can help the foreign English to learn English fun. The kids generate royalty when they young.
Why do not sharp your skill when you are young? You are young and your parents support you with money. They also allow you live inside the house.
Some kids offer the service to the neighbors. Mowing the yard is not a bad idea. The neighbor may like what you do.

How to generate money when you are between jobs

When the company decides to fire you in order to efficiency, you should make the step to find other jobs. Finding a jobs need time. Sometimes we should wait other jobs for years. Surely, waiting jobs is not a good activity. It makes you sick and wastes your times. Here are some activities that can make money while you are between jobs:

1. Find part jobs
Some people may offer mowing yard to the house that have large year. Perhaps the owner will be kind to you and give little dollar to you.
Visit the veterinaries near your house. He or she may need assistance to hold the cat or dog. The veterinary may need someone who wants to bath, sit, and walk with dogs.
2. Surf the internet
Some people dream get thousand dollar from blog or website. This a internet era where people can sell or buy through online. If you have no much money, you can sell other website stuff such as Amazon, eBay, and else. You can get 4% each you can sell the stuff.
There are some website that offers little dollar. Five dollar that you can get from the internet may be useful for buying some bread, milk, cookie, pampers, and others.
Some survey also pay you little dollar. It is not difficult to do that. You just choose or select the option.
3. Garage Sales
Having some useless items? Why do not you sell the items? It is better than let the items damage at your garage. Perhaps your family saves some antique stuff at the garage. Save the money from garage sales for food or transportation cost to find new jobs.
4. Volunteer
There are some non Government Organization that seeks the volunteer. You may work as volunteer to get paid five dollars a day. It is not much but you can get benefit by working as volunteer. You can add your volunteer work on your curriculum vitae or your portfolio. The company may appreciate the volunteer than unemployment.
5. Open a business
It is not wrong to start the business after the boss fire you. Old age is not a reason for you to stop trying. Why do not you start business from your hobby? Perhaps you have some toys or train.
Use your saving to open a business. Perhaps you will be success with business. Some people can be success after the boss fires them. Now, they have own business and employ some people.
