The Reality Of Payday Loans
Pay day loans or pay day advances were a thing of the past. Most people who worked in the formal sector had not even used this service let alone heard it. It was the hard work that they put in that counted and so they counted on promotions.
Fast forward to the second decade of the 21st century and they are now a trend. They have become a service that is widely used by at least 25% of persons in the formal sector. Why you ask? This is because the cost of living has risen and profits among companies have fallen.

Since the economic crunch of 2008, we have seen a rise in the costs of food, mortgage, telephone bills, fuel, health services and in the education sector. Pay day advances from lenders such as http://www.mypaydaylender.co.uk are widely applied for by households especially the breadwinners who have to complete paying the bills; be it electricity or the mortgage. But is there really a motivating factor as to why people are obliged to request a pay day advance?
Well I could ask, why can’t someone endure those few couple of days doing side hustles to boost their incomes? Because a pay day loan is only a benefit in the short run but when you look at the long run, it is actually a loss.

Short term gain
First you have to deal with the interest that you have to pay. So that means you actually pay more for that advance cash. This mostly happens during the festive season. People mostly look to get the advances early so that they can enjoy and revel during this season which calls for celebrating. But then January comes along and then its back to square one and reality hits you. Its mid-January and you are practically broke.

So what am I trying to say here?
Taking a pay loan advance is not a necessity. You can start by planning on how to evade this by budgeting your monthly income right from the word go. I must say this will take some lean spending at some point in the month, cutting on electricity usage and all that. In the long run, you will have escaped some very dire consequences.
I

‘m not saying that it’s wrong to do that or a taboo for that matter but we must be wise in our spending. But this is just my opinion and that according to me is the reality behind payday loans. I think that this would be the first step to actually evading the temptation of taking a pay day advance.

4 steps you can follow to build your business credit

As an experienced Canadian credit reporting professional and a business man himself, Pat Drummond knows the challenges that small businesses face, and has learned from experience how to avoid common mistakes, which may eat up valuable time and money. Small businesses especially ones that are generally family-owned or those that have been operating for less than 2 years need access to credit. Here are 4 steps you can follow to build your business credit:

1. Establish a Business Credit Report

Every business starts with no credit score, and no credit history. Similar to your personal credit report, a business good credit profile can help your company grow and prosper. As you make connections to your business clients, you can start to build your working relations and credit profile.  As the business expands and starts establishing it, approvals for loans will get easier.

2. Leverage Business Relationships

It is important to start building a good business foundation and working relationship with your suppliers. There may be a variety of vendors which your business relies upon to get the job done or to provide products and having a great working relationship can help to improve your business credit report. If you regularly shop at Home Depot for example, you can open up a contractor account and start to build your business credit in that way. Many companies will offer perks and special discounts for regular customers. This includes private businesses and contractors.

3. Justify the Loan

Having a sound business plan will go a long way into helping secure the credit and loans that your growing business needs. When requesting credit, lenders such as banks will want to know what you plan to do with the money. A solid plan will not only help you success on your plan, but will also calm the nerves of lenders and any investor who may want to support the business financially.

4. Separate Business from Personal Credit

This is a common mistake among small business owners. It is easy to fall into this situation because you want your business to succeed. However, keep in my that separating your personal finances and your business finances is a must. Your credit report will be in a much healthier position and you will reduce the risk of your business impacting your personal credit score. If the business were to ever close or go bankrupt the consequences can be significant and even worse when you are held personally liable for business debts.

How to Buy Homes Without Borrowing From the Bank

Don Nay has purchased more than 3,300 residential properties during the past 30 years and has never borrowed money from a bank to purchase a home. Now he wants to teach other people in Southern California how to buy homes the same way he did.
“Banks are financial institutions, not people,” explains Nay. “They have a cookie-cutter approach to making and servicing home loans in Southern California that is without concern for the person responsible for repaying that loan. I figured it was time to share what I’ve learned about the home buying process so that it might just help a few folks to buy a home or avoid foreclosure. It might help wake the banks up, too.”

I live in San Bernardino County and this county has been hit the hardest with foreclosures. Real estate has also been tough in Riverside County. There was an increase in foreclosures by 34% in the first part of 2013. I meet a lot of agents who say now is the time to get back into the market. I know people HAVE to be educated. The market is different. Even if you have experience, it’s best to learn what is working now and why. Don recommends a Purchase Money Mortgage and he can teach you how to use it.

Don Nay will conduct three free workshops that provide an overview of his approach to home buying. The free workshops will take place at Hilton Orange County, 3050 Bristol Street, Costa Mesa, CA 92626 on Tuesday, September 10, 2013 12:00 p.m to 3:00 p.m.; Thursday, September 12, 2013 6:00 p.m. to 9 p.m.; and Tuesday, September 17, 2013 from 12:00 p.m. to 3 p.m.
He will also conduct a three-day, in-depth seminar where he provides detailed information on how to use his process to purchase homes without bank loans. The seminar will take place on Friday, September 20, 2013 through Sunday, September 22, 2013, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Hilton Orange County, 3050 Bristol Street, Costa Mesa, CA 92626.
