Rules number two, if you are serious about buying investment art read up on various styles and art forms. Perhaps you have always been attracted to impressionism but you didn't know it was called 'impressionism'. This can help you when searching for a certain style. Rule number three; consider calibre of artist you are going to investment in. Emerging or relatively unknown artists can be very profitable investments but hold more risk. It’s wise to learn as much as you can about artist before you purchase. This is where internet can be a very helpful tool. All kinds of information is available at click of mouse. Rule number four - buy what you love! Can you see yourself enjoying it for years to come? This is an important consideration when you are buying art or anything else for that matter. Whether it becomes a priceless work or not, you will have satisfaction of having chosen and enjoyed something you really like. Most importantly, you can become a successful art collector and investor. Don't stand still! Don't procrastinate! Go out and start searching for art that is right for you. Everyone has to start somewhere! I can speak from experience and say that learning about art and investing is rewarding intellectually, aesthetically and financially.

It Is In Your Best Interest To Do The Math On Your Credit Card InterestWritten by Terry McDermott

These companies can be their own worst enemy. Every day consumers throughout country receive an avalanche of credit card offers that make promises of low interest and high spending limits. Many of recipients are already strung out with other debts but credit companies still offer and then provide these high-risk individuals with desired credit. Talk about using gasoline to try and extinguish a fire.
The practice of paying with plastic can be seductive and addictive and credit card companies are well aware of it. It is obvious that these companies are doing quite well. They use loopholes to gradually increase interest rates and capitalize on deceptive “minimum monthly payment” scheme to string consumers along. If you have an ounce of wisdom, you will pay close attention to credit card offers you receive and progress of your interest rates as you go month-to-month. It is a quite simple matter to let things get out of control and find yourself at mercy of Visa and MasterCard.
