Are you sick of the Financial Insecurity of Fluctuating Seasons and Income?Written by Mandy Nield
Finding a stable and secure income that will come year in, year out, no matter what happens on farm will give you real peace of mind. By investing off farm, you are not only providing a secure income now, but also preparing for retirement. This IS attainable by all levels of income earners and people of all ages.
I am a farmer’s wife and have lived through some good and bad seasons on farm. If farming was all about money, then we wouldn’t still be here. Most of us farmers genuinely LOVE lifestyle that farming brings.
However, being a ‘city girl’ and marrying a farmer, I struggle with insecurity and irregularity of income. These days, you’d have to be a top financial professional to get it right 100% of time. Some years we seem to have plenty of money and other we’re in debt before we even start paying for seeding expenses (and that doesn’t even include tax due!). Does this sound familiar?
Well, I’ve got some great news for you. I have discovered a way that provides a regular income that is not affected by rainfall! My husband and I have been investing in real estate now for a couple of years and have found that even in bad times, we still have that income to fall back on. This brings real ‘peace of mind.’ Trust me, it’s really not as hard or as expensive, as it sounds, and we as farmers have an extra huge benefit that we can take advantage of, and that is – fluctuating seasons and income! (I bet that’s a surprise!)
3 things you need to do to turn net information into cashWritten by Chris K.
Although we are in information age, very few people have been able to turn colossal amount of free accessible information available online, into cash or business success.
One of reasons for this is that there is actually too much information available online. Actually so much of it that it gets overwhelming sometimes. When you consider that there are about 40,000 new blogs being launched daily, and that is not even counting new websites or updates going in in both websites and blogs, it becomes clear that information is coming at us in gigantic levels. And it grows daily.
The only way to handle this colossal information is to focus and specialize on a certain area. This only way you will be able to effectively process loads and loads of information and find a way of profiting from it. For example a person specializing on affiliate marketing should not touch any other area. Not even affiliate financing or any other aspect of affiliate schemes. If they do this, they will find that within a very short time they will become an expert in an area that they can easily profit from tremendously.
It then becomes extremely easy to explore net and colossal information of gigantic proportions that is available, because your interest is limited or narrowed down to a specific area. Using our previous example of an area of expertise, it is then east to research and find out what top affiliate marketers on net are earning and what kind of programs bring those high earnings. When you specialize, surfing ceases to be a tiring and confusing exercise and becomes a fascinating journey of discovery and knowledge accumulation. This is an important aspect in turning mere information into something useful and productive.
