Rhinoceros Success

Avatar Of Rajesh Khanna

Published

In this world, there are cows and then there are rhinos. The cows graze in the pasture with the other cows, unwilling to take a chance at success, thinking that success only comes to those who are lucky, or that they just aren’t cut out to be successful. Many live out their lives in fear: they are the “lives of quiet desperation” that Emerson so famously observed.

The rhinos, on the other hand, take charge. Focused and unafraid, thick-skinned and unstoppable, they take massive action toward accomplishing their dreams and goals. They understand that success is there for the taking, if only one brings to bear the right training, mindset and work ethic.

If you are just starting out on your road to self-improvement or you need a little laugh or pick-me-up, Rhinoceros Success is a great book that will enable you to develop the mindset of a thick-skinned 2000-pound charging rhino!

According to Scott Alexander, Rhinoceros Success has sold over 1.5 million copies over the last 20 years. Not too bad, with no advertising and no mainstream bookstore circulation–and Scott was only 23 years old when he wrote it.

I was first exposed to this book in 1998 when I was given a copy by a very successful businessman. At first glance, I thought the man had given me a children’s book! I had no idea of the impact this book would have on my life.

When you first sift through the pages, you would never guess that you were holding a book that would teach you the basic principals you need for success–but that is exactly what you’ll find in Rhinoceros Success. For the younger generation in network marketing, Scott covers many of the areas in which you can improve yourself, provides examples on how to do so, and plants the seeds you’ll need for success in the future.

Rhinoceros Success is packed with insightful tips on how to improve in all the key areas of your life: social, spiritual, work, financial, family and physical. Imagine having two-inch-thick skin, charging at every opportunity with the unstoppable belief that you will become successful! With that mindset, what would your business look like in six months?

If you are brand new to network marketing, becoming a rhino early in the game will save you months or even years of frustration, get you on the right track and give you the foundation you need to continue your journey on self-improvement and belief. Once you have mastered these techniques and you’re charging through each day tearing down all obstacles in your way, you may also want to consider Scott’s advanced Rhino books: Rhinocerotic Relativity and Advanced Rhinocerology. Good luck and keep charging!

Rhinos Press, 1980; out of print, but over 100 copies available on Amazon.

The Australian Stock Exchange and the General Economic Trend of the Global Economy

The Australian Stock Exchange Ltd (ASX) operates Australia’s federal exchange for equities/stocks, derivatives along with fixed interest securities, such as bonds. The central exchange also puts up comprehensive marketplace data plus trading information to a broad scope of traders, stockbrokers and charges.

A stock exchange is a shared governance which puts up trading installations for brokerages and dealers, to barter in shares and other investments. Stock market exchanges also offer facilities for the publication and redemption of securities including other fiscal instruments and capital events including the payment of income and dividends. The securities dealt on the exchanges market include shares released by companies, trusts, derivatives, pooled investiture products and bonds. To be able to deal in a security on a certain stock exchange marketplace, it must be listed there. Usually there’s a central location at least for information filing, but trade is slowly removing itself from a real life location, as cutting-edge market places are electronic networks, which renders them vantages of speed and charge of transactions. Trade on any exchange is by members only. The premier extending of stock and bonds to trade investors is done within the primary marketplace and subsequent dealing is complete in the secondary marketplace. A stock exchange is frequently the most important part of a stock marketplace.

The history of the Australian Stock Exchange initiates with these 6 capital exchanges that were established in Perth, Hobart, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, and Brisbane. From 1903-1937, these state exchanges begun assembling on an unofficial footing. By 1936, Sydney moved forward by formalizing the association and in 1937 the Australian Associated Stock Exchanges was instituted. The constitution of the AASE put down the base rules for the listing of groups, brokerage houses and the working conventions of stock brokers and their businesses. On 1st April, 1987 the Australian Government broke down legislation shaping the Australian Securities Exchange Ltd. (ASX). Constituting an all-Australian exchange officially tied together the 6 individual stock exchanges functioning in the cities.

The stock exchange market might seem cryptic, but the inward workings of the marketplace are no hidden secret. Have you ever been to an auction? When you pay for an object at an auction, you will not be purchasing from the auctioneer. It is the auctioneer’s problem to link up buyers with sellers, and to pull in the strongest price for the seller. Since there’s no fixed price for any auction sale item, the agreed price is defined by the amount that a buyer is happy to sacrifice. The stock exchange markets operate in a synonymous manner. It’s an auction styled marketplace, and the broker is a mediator who aims to meet buyers and vendors of stocks and shares.

The Australian Stock Exchange is a completely electronic stock exchange, applying SEATS (Stock Exchange Automated Trading System) for the transferring of stocks, fixed-interest securities, warrants, company-issued options and rights. By employing this scheme, orders may be laid online via a broker and when a purchase and sell meet, the deal is instantly performed the 5 most popular traded groups on the Australian Securities Exchange include Regis, Telstracor, Redport, Quantas, and Sherlock. The S&P/ASX 200 index is ingrained as the benchmark for the Australian’s equity market. The S&P/ASX 200 is made up of the S&P/ASX 100+ an extra 100 stocks. The S&P/ASX 200 index also courses the cornerstone for the ASX Mini200 futures contract. The Australian Securities Exchange operates the Australian Stock Exchange and the Sydney Futures Exchange and allows for trading in securities and derivatives, such as warrants, futures, options and shares. ASX also offers market data, for example stock evaluations, and correlated info in addition to stock exchange market announcements and market place training. Market options on major stocks are switched on the Australian Securities Exchange, with standard groupings of strike prices and expiration dates. Liquidity is put up by market makers who are obligated to provide quotes. Each market maker is assigned 2 or more stocks. Each stock can have umpteen market makers, and they all compete for business with each other.

The interest rate marketplace on the Australian Securities Exchange is the arrangement of floating rate notes, bond-like preference shares, and corporate bonds listed on the market exchange. Those sureties are are exchanged and settled the same as ordinary stocks, but the ASX offers info such as their interest rate, maturity, etc to help in the comparability. The ASX provides school pupils the opportunity to artificially commit fifty thousand dollars into the stock market, and track its advancement over many months. It permits the scholars purchase and trade as normal, utilizing rates from the up-to-date share prices. At the stock exchange, prices of shares rise up and fall reliant, for the most part, on market place forces. The price of shares usually grow or remain well-balanced when the business sector and the economic system exhibits signs of stability and development. An economic recession, depression, or financial crisis could finally finish in a stock price crash. So, the movement of stock prices and in general of the stock indexes can be a good estimate of the general economic trend.

When you made your first attempt to trade stocks, one of the things holding you back might be the stock picking problem. Hence, you are keen on searching for ways to learn to trade stock. You might have stumbled upon some hard ways and yet to find a simple way to trade stocks.

Most of us had the impression of where we should be researching and analyze every single details of a company before investing in it. Occasionally, we had even being encouraged to rely heavily on technical indicators and technical materials. Focusing too much on the technical indicators could somehow bring much more confusion to a trader and thus not making a precise decision while trying to pick a stock to invest in. This is how we often overlook on some obvious great opportunities lying in front of us.

Being an analytical person, doing as much research, focusing much on technical indicators, might not be good strategies for everyone. I like to keep things as simple as possible for myself, yet making a decent amount of profit throughout the trading session.

The Shortcut Method

Learn to trade stock with the hidden method that I have found, be confident when you pick stocks, be discipline, organizing a good money management strategy, you can be rest assured to earn around 50 – 70 ticks per day (ranging around $50 – $700 or more per day, depending on your amount of investment). Now how do you get this result? The real shortcut way to do it, is to trade the gap differences of a stock index (and you need to trade within the first 30 minutes after the market opens!). Besides that, do not forget to set a stop loss, along with an exit point. That is what you really need to do, to make that kind of profit.

A Review of the MXI Corp (Xocai) Income Opportunity

Avatar Of Rajesh Khanna

Published

on

MXI Corp (whose name stands for Marketing Xocalate International Corporation) is a company that is based out of Reno, Nevada. One of the more popular and heavily marketed divisions of this company is called Xocai. Xocai’s product line is made up of a variety of dark chocolate “treats” full of antioxidants that include X Power Squares, Xocai Nuggets, Protein Bars, Activ, and Omega Bars. There are also variety packs and gift boxes available for purchase.

There are opportunities to earn an income from Xocai and MXI Corp by becoming a Xocai Distributor. To become a Xocai Distributor there is an association fee of thirty five dollars. Many distributors like to call this the Xocai “club membership” fee. Once you join, you can earn income in a variety of ways. The two major ways are 1) to buy cases of Xocai products at wholesale prices and then sell the individual pieces at retail value and 2) to set up a down line and earn a commission from the sales of your down line.

With most multi level marketing programs, one person recruits a few people to work for him or her. Those people then go out and recruit a third set of people. This continues on, each group of people recruiting another group of people, and so on. This is called a down line. All of the members of a down line make sales. The members keep a portion of their sales and the rest of their profits get distributed up the down line. The head of a down line might earn five percent commissions off of their first level in the down line, four percent off the second level, three percent of the third, etc.

With Xocai, however, all Xocai down line members are treated as a single level, regardless of who recruited them and the head of the down line makes an average of the profits. This can be both good and bad because with other down lines, the head is guaranteed to make at least something. The Xocai method however has changed things so that if only some members of the down line make a profit, the original associate’s commission is diminished considerably. The most an associate will ever earn is fifty percent of all commissionable profits. This means that, in order to make enough with this business plan to be financially stable, an associate has to be incredibly careful about who gets recruited. This is not a MLM program that does the work without much effort. Another negative in the Xocai method is that all associates are required to have at least one level of down line and activate at least two more associates who will work under them.

While there are several methods of earning available with Xocai, you should beware of the MLM aspects of this program. It looks all good on the top but there are details that aren’t so friendly.

Home Extension Project – Six Ideas To Finance It

Avatar Of Rajesh Khanna

Published

A home extension can be an enormous project both in financial and physical work. There are walls to be torn down, air conditioners to be installed, and many other technical jobs to conduct. It is important that you have a good financial plan to do home extensions.

Here are some steps to help you manage the budget for renovations.

  1. Make plans for your extension project. It is important to arrange every detail of your project. Do assessment on every element on your home that you are about to renovate based on the value of your home. If you take loan for your project, the loan provider will ask on specific outlines. From this early step you will know if the project fit your budget.
  2. Get estimations. You can do this by hiring a construction company. Do not forget to explain the considerations and parameters of your project. Provide the company with the expecting spaces they are going to work on. Compare with several companies for the best price.
  3. Manage your savings. It is estimated that you have to take some money out of your reserves, but this is not something to be afraid of. The advantage of using your own saving is that you do not have to pay any interest. It is wise if you take only the sufficient amount. If you plan to use loan provider then the amount would be less burdened.
  4. Some credit cards provide the Zero-Interest program. Find some information about it. It is a quick way to provide loans for your project. The credit card companies also suggest reward programs for you to take advantage of, but some of these programs have high rate of interest. Make sure you have read the terms and conditions carefully to avoid being haunted by debt collector once your extension project has been finished.
  5. Use the home equity loan to finance your renovation project. It generally has lower rate of interest than many other financing programs. If you want to sell the home before paying down the loan, reducing the equity in the home can deplete the return of your investment.
  6. The best and cheapest way to get extra budget is by asking your family and friends to invest for your home extensions. Small works such as remodeling and cleaning up the furniture can be done together with them. But be careful not to break anything, because the cost to hire somebody again can cost you double.

Learning The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Ordering Food And Other Items Online

Avatar Of Rajesh Khanna

Published

Lots of people have seen the benefits of ordering stuff online. This also includes ordering food and getting them delivered straight to your home. Most fast food chains now incorporate online ordering into their services and even restaurants are getting into the act. Perhaps you have even experienced doing this at one point. So perhaps, you may also be aware of the advantages that come with ordering your food online which also goes the same for other non-food items. For one, the virtual realm doesn’t sleep, unlike the actual marketplace. Hence, you can place your order at any time, although there are some stores that probably won’t delivery 24/7.

Second, nothing beats the comfort of doing your shopping online, especially your groceries. Lots of housewives have switched to doing this because it allows them time to do their other chores. Instead of wasting time rushing off to the supermarket and waiting long lines, you can just load up your online shopping cart, checkout the items, and wait for them to delivered straight to your doorstep. Third, you get to score lots of great discounts and possibly get your food items at way cheaper prices than in the supermarket. It’s especially true if you’re diligent in scouring the virtual marketplace for discount coupons, promo codes, and other hot deal. Plus, if you’re a first-time customer, lots of online stores love to give complimentary discounts as well.

However, as much as there are lots of benefits, there are also a few drawbacks. We cannot help having them because this is the virtual world after all. In other words, these risks come with the territory. One, you cannot really see the items in actual. When it comes to groceries, this can sometimes be a bit vital. You cannot check the labels for expiry dates, ingredients, and such. So to remedy the situation, stick with those online stores that actually provide complete product descriptions. It’s also highly recommended to do your shopping in general with trustworthy sites. The risk is even greater if you’re trying out a new product, so it’s good to check out sites giving away free samples first. Two, you cannot transact with actual cash. This can present a bit of an inconvenience, especially if you’re trying to refrain from using your credit card.

Nonetheless, a lot of food chains and restaurants allow cash-on-delivery orders. Some online stores selling groceries do as well. But these would usually apply to those stores which are within your neighborhood. This means that if you are going to order non-perishable food items, like maybe canned goods or candies and chocolates and they have to be shipped from outside your area, then you definitely cannot pay with cash. Lastly, even with today’s sophisticated technology, there are still glitches when it comes to paying for your food items online. Errors in billing are pretty common, even when seemingly secured channels are being used. Of course, established online stores will refund you, but you still have to go through some steps. So, just exercise the necessary caution needed when ordering anything online.

How To Slim Down Your Fat Wallet

Avatar Of Rajesh Khanna

Published

Trends and styles keep on changing. From big fat wallets, the style has now changed to slim and smart wallets, for both men and women. If you are one of those who keeps on saying, “I hate big fat wallets”, then you need not to worry, as now you have many good options that can help in getting rid of your big fat wallet and can make you look smarter.

You can get rid of your fat wallet if you avoid keeping all the needless items that have made their way into your overflowing wallet. These unwanted items can include restaurant bills, old photographs, storage cards and a collection of visiting cards. Use a separate card-holder and maintain it at home. To store your important contacts, you can use gadgets and your cell phone. Most of the new phones these days come with practically unlimited storage for saving your contacts.

Cut down the thickness of your wallet by using plastic money instead of hard cash. Apart from curtailing the size of your wallet, plastic money provides the safest way to carry your money anywhere. It is advised not to carry more than two credit/debit cards. You can keep your identification card and a few dollars; and that too if necessary, otherwise credit cards will do the job.

Slim wallets are more preferred for men because a big fat wallet affects the flow of dress shirts, way of sitting and can even cause back pains because of the improper body structure when sitting with a fat wallet in your back pocket. Most companies are introducing much slimmer and fashionable wallets, available in different colors (like gold, silver), materials (like original leather and nylon) and trendy styles. One such style is bi-fold or tri-folding wallets. These wallets provide the required space. Some can even hold up to 15 cards and can easily be placed in your front pocket. Such wallets come with a magnetic money clip while some provide a strong and secure clutch. Money/Card Clip Holder is another type of wallet that is light on your back pocket, and these can also be placed in the front pocket. By using a clip, all the cards can be placed one over another, while the money has to be rolled back to let the clip make it hold.

What makes your wallet big and fat, is its untidiness and improper maintenance. People usually keep on filling it till it starts coming out of their pockets. Even women who often clean and maintain their pouches and purses, do not clean their wallets leaving all kinds of chits, paper reminders and visiting cards in their wallets. This results in the hassle of searching the wallet for the right thing when required.

Once you have removed all the unwanted items and follow the aforementioned tips and suggestions, you would no longer be saying, ” I hate big fat wallets ” and can save yourself from the frustration of carrying a bulky and disorganized wallet.
