Why you need an emergency fund

75% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck.

Are you living paycheck to paycheck? According to the statement above, 7 in every 10 houses in your neighborhood is one emergency away from a crisis. That’s a huge deal! Many families are torn apart because of financial troubles and I refuse to allow that you happen to you! That’s why you need an emergency fund.

Secrets Revealed: How To Become Successful

How to become successful

Becoming successful in life is not rocket science, yet there are many people out there who have no idea how to become successful. If you’re one of them, that’s okay. I’m here for you!

There are some universal truths behind successful lives that can help you reach your goals faster. By following the list below, you can be sure to experience everlasting change and achieve your desires like never before.

Add Value Or Help Somebody

"Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value."- Albert Einstein

A truly successful person knows that in order to breed more success, they must add more value to someone’s life. For example, big companies that we all know and love do something for us, don’t they? They provide us with the product we need for the right price. By providing us with something we were asking and looking for, they create wealth as a byproduct.

It should always be your first priority to create something that will benefit others. You cannot trick people into becoming a dedicated and loyal customer. Instead, focus on providing them with a solution to their needs and they will come back time after time, happy to give you their money in exchange for your service.

On the flipside, when you focus on helping someone (even for free), you build trust with that person and they will be sure to tell others about how friendly and life-changing your help was. Never underestimate the power of word of mouth. By helping others without asking for anything in return, you build relationships with people who will have a great opinion of you.

Also, the universe always returns that which is sent out. You will always reap what you sow. Therefore, sow the things you wish to receive.

What Is The Serving Size?

When you read the nutrition label, the first thing you’ll see is the serving size. In order to give you a proper listing, the company has to use some sort of measuring. The serving size tells you the amount of food you need to eat to receive all the nutrients/toxins listed below. Usually, the serving size is an amount that’s easy to measure like a cup or a package. Think of it this way, “This much gives you these results.”

For example, if the serving size is 1 cup and there are 2 servings per container, that means you’ll be eating 2 cups per container. You’ll be consuming 2x the nutrients on the label if you eat the whole thing. It’s pretty simple. Ask yourself, “How many servings am I eating?” Read more
