(165)Money Doesn't Finance Dreams

 


Are you putting off your dreams until you have money? Well, each day that you put off your dreams, you lose a little bit of time for that dream.

Have you made choices that although made everyone else happy, left you feeling empty and incomplete? Maybe you used your lack of money as an excuse, so that you wouldn't feel bad about not pursuing your dreams. But the truth is money is never a hindrance. It is used as a crutch because it is much easier to say money is the problem, than to admit that you are the only obstacle standing in the way of your dreams.

The beauty of dreams is that they are free. When you hold off on your dreams, it costs so much more. You live wondering what if you had made those choices, how would your life be if you had achieved those goals? Right now, think of the one dream that you are holding on to for dear life; what is your #1 excuse for not doing it?

If you want to go back to school, you can look for scholarships and financial aid. You can even take distant learning courses, so you don't even have to leave home. If you want to start a business, there are many free resources online that show you how you can start with no money involved. If you want to pursue a hobby full-time, you can research to find others that are doing the same thing and ask them for help.

Money is not the real obstacle or the driving force to your dreams. The excuses you make just covers up what lies deep within, which is fear and doubt. You anticipate failure or challenges, so you don't bother pursuing your dreams. You let go of your dreams and give up.

You can not feel fulfilled in life unless you are living a self- actualized life. Living your dreams makes your life authentic. Stop using money as a reason for you not to be where you were meant to be in your life. Why settle for small accomplishments, when you can live a life of greatness? You can do a lot of things with money, but you can't buy your dreams. Take one step today towards your dreams; don't worry it won't cost you a thing.

Moneynet adds weight to intelligent finance with new personal finance product guides

Moneynet.co.uk, the UK’s longest established online personal finance information website, has recently published three online product guides to help consumers get to grips with the increasing complexity of personal finance products.

With a strong stance on ethical finance, the company felt it was important to be proactive on educating consumers about the different aspects of credit related products to get the best deal. This is crucial, as a recent report by Credit Action indicates that less than the half of adults are financially literate, which drops to a third for young adults aged between 21 and 24.

According to the National Statistics website, 91% of men and 90% of women in the UK have at least one credit card, collectively accumulating over £54.3 billion of debt. Credit Action, a national money education charity, states that 50% of the people who take out credit in shops, hadn’t planned to do so
when they left home. This is particularly serious as store cards often present the highest rate of interest, indicating either a lack of awareness or understanding on the part of the consumer, or worse a lack of concern about the possible consequences. A survey published last year by the Office of Fair
Trading showed that whilst 60% of cardholders thought they had a good understanding of credit cards, they were unable to answer specific questions or extract key information, such as the APR, fees for late payment or cash withdrawal.

There are currently three guides available on http://www.moneynet.co.uk, covering credit cards, mortgages and loans. In addition to explaining the different aspects of credit application, moneynet also offer a glossary of key terms in the resources section to help visitors gain a complete
understanding of the best product for their needs. Further guides are due to be published later this year.

(167)Moneynet tackles funding university with new student finance guide

 


Consumer research site, moneynet, has published its seventh online brochure in the series of personal finance product guides. The student finance guide, collated by two graduates at moneynet, was generated in response to requests moneynet received from parents, students and prospective students who had serious financial concerns about how to fund university.

Graduates are reportedly leaving university with debts of over £13,000. With the advent of Child Trust Funds as a long term measure to assist with the costs of higher education, there is pressure on financial providers to not only consider the type of financial product they offer students, but to additionally review how they communicate complex terms to this young market and to ensure students have a solid understanding of the personal finance market.

In response to widespread public concern and letters from its customers who have families, moneynet has published a comprehensive guide to those factors which affect student finance and university budgets, including realistic expectations and practical suggestions. Key recommendations include:

* Gathering as many savings as possible before university, through birthday and Christmas presents, summer jobs, part-time jobs and any other savings accounts
* Shopping around for the best deals on household insurance, current accounts and savings accounts
* Bulk buying weekly groceries and being strict about spending, borrowing and lending

Richard Brown, Chief Executive of Moneynet said “We all understand the importance of budgeting, but for students this can be especially difficult. Our Guide to Student Finance is designed to provide some simple help and advice aimed at making those years in higher education a bit more bearable.”

Moneynet also provides an online banking management tool called AccountStore, which is a fast, simple and secure way to manage money. AccountStore would allow students to manage all their online accounts in one place under a single login, making it easy to keep track of credit card bills, overdraft spending, savings and standing orders.

Other publications in Moneynet’s series of consumer product information guides include: credit cards, mortgages, loans, life insurance, ethical investing and family finance. The website also features a comprehensive glossary for consumers who wish to look up more general personal finance terms.

(168)Moneynet Takes Finance Personally

 

Moneynet, the personal finance specialist, is expanding its range of product guides to include financial lifestyle information to appeal to families, students and other consumer markets. Moneynet, the most established consumer research website in the UK has taken the initiative in response to concerns that consumers are becoming alienated by complex finance information.

The family finance guide is the sixth publication to be released by moneynet and initially incorporates two sections, with the intention of future content expansion. The first section covers financial basics for parents, with a summary on the financial resources that are available to families, including Child Benefit, Statutory Maternity Pay, Child Tax Credits, Child Trust Funds and the Education Maintenance Allowance. The second section offers some suggestions to parents who wish to encourage their children to become financially aware and responsible with money.

The family finance guide will be extended later this year to encompass issues such as the financial practicalities of bereavement, inheritance tax, financial protection for the family, planning your child’s education, and divorce.

With increasing pressure on personal finance product providers to present more transparent information for consumers, companies which proactively seek a more positive interaction with customers are welcomed by the public. In terms of managing customer expectations online, moneynet can appreciate the increase in internet users going online to research and manage their money #, whilst acknowledging the fact that most consumers have yet to feel comfortable with their finances. Credit Action reported in May this year that half the people who take out credit in shops, had not intended to do so when they left home, whilst a report published by Cambridge University allegedly revealed that nine million Britons suffer from financial phobia. These factors secure moneynet as a highly relevant tool to assist consumers with their financial homework.

Moneynet has been championing greater access to financial product information for consumers since 1997. The company hopes that information which is based on a ‘stage of life’, as well as encompassing technical details about a particular product, will be more accessible to visitors, encouraging them to seek the best deal for their loan, mortgage, credit card and insurance.

Richard Brown, Chief Executive of Moneynet said of the guides, “since 1997 moneynet has been at the forefront of the move to make financial information more accessible to the consumer. As the first personal finance website in the UK to publish inter-active and comprehensive data on the UK personal finance market we have always believed that the consumer should be better informed. Our latest guides will add to the existing library and help to further educate our users, making them better positioned to challenge the product providers.”
