The Golden Rule of Investing

Dividend Income Investors

What is the “Golden Rule of Investing”?

 “Think of all money you earn as a Potential source of Future Income”  

Don’t think in terms of how much money you have or have saved but rather how much money you can generate from what you have.

In other words, when you receive your pay check, of course you have to pay your bills. And some bills you will always have – electric, water, gas, phone, mortgage but those that you don’t is where you can get the money to finance your future.  A great example is your car. A lot of people buy a car – and of course they buy into the marketing that owning that luxury or high priced sports car is more fulfilling somehow. But what you need to consider how much future income did you give up for that little bit of prestige you got from…

Our own universe.

Alisa Lifestyle

We always try so hard to please others. We seek acceptance and approval to feel better about ourselves. I’m not saying this is wrong, we need more selfless and generous people in the world but what we don’t do that should come before seeking approval from others is seek approval from ourselves. Accept ourselves. We are so much more than we may think. From outer space we may look like nothing but specks of dust in a universe so vast but within us is a light brighter than any sun in the sky, stars that could fill the universe and more. Within us is our own universe. No one else has the same universe as you so why do we hide it? Why do we push it away with doubt? Why don’t you let people see the beauty from within? Why don’t you see the beauty inside you?

Diary of a Pseudo – Broke Girl

RED ROSY CHIC

There are times in a girl’s life, when the shopaholic brat, inside of her, blinds her choices and rules her actions. As a fashion lover, I can’t deny it, that part of me, wants to get its way more times than I can recall, but I tend to be very rational about it. Nevertheless, I am still only human.

When I opened my latest bank statement it felt like a punch to my gut. It left me panting for air. I was walking on Rebecca Bloomwood’s fuchsia furry boots, and it didn’t feel good. My eyes scrolled down the stiff paper trying to take in every number. There was no mistake. I could account for every figure on the statement.

List of common Chemicals that are making you Fat & Depressed

We’ve all heard that if we eat too many calories, we’ll get fat. But there’s more to it: it’s not just the calories, but the chemicals, in our food that contribute to obesity.

Some of these chemicals — called “obesogens” — trigger our bodies to store fat even though we might be restricting calories. The effects are complex: some of these chemicals increase the number of fat cells, others expand the size of fat cells and still others influence appetite, cravings, fullness and how well the body burns calories. In addition to obesogens, other synthetic food ingredients have been shown to help us pack on the pounds and leave us feeling depressed, even when when we think we’re eating healthy.

To stop feeling that way, here are the top five chemicals to avoid in food.

I got published today.

Starting the year with a feature story about Haitian chicken and more.

I wrote that story a few months back. Finally got published. Getting used to it. Cover story. Feature story. Next story. Shitty blog.

Yesterday I finally started working on a story I did not query and I’m just writing for myself (and hopefully selling). It’s missing something. More accuracy. So I went to the historical archive to look up writings of Sor Abeja and… Well some kid was there and he said to try the next day.

That day is today. But the historical archive is next to Nelson bar. I stopped by for one beer and to talk to Erika the bartender about the story. A friend texted me that she will meet me there in 20 minutes. I waited for more than an hour and I didn’t have any food. One beer turned into…

To whine some today (BLW Contributor)

I honestly try not to publish posts with me whining.

But, that is exactly what this post is about.

I am going to whine; but as I whine, I remind myself there are others who have it much worse than I.

What is ‘it’, you ask?

Anything in life that causes pain, suffering and agony.

You may remember in my post ‘a walnut-sized gland‘,  I wrote about experiencing pain starting prior to my cruise in December that progressively became worse.  My Urologist Dr. P. thought it might be a prostate infection and prescribed antibiotics and pain medication.

My pain continues and at times has become worse.  If the prostate is infected, it certainly is taking its time to reduce in size and in turn reduced my pain.  Dr. P. wanted to see how I was managing and so I had a follow-up visit with…
