Simple steps to financial freedom for your family

Simple steps to financial freedom for your life
What is financial freedom? In simple terms, it is the stage when a person no need to work to cover-up their family’s daily expenses and keeping their lifestyle intact. But, is that possible for everyone? How can one attain this stage? Is there a systematic way to achieve this level? Yes, there are ways to achieve, if one follows certain discipline from their early age, Financial freedom for your family can be achievable in a defined period of time if you are determined. All you need to take simple disciplined steps to save and invest consistently during your earning period.

Simple steps to financial freedom:

Start Investing Early:

The one important step towards financial freedom is "Start investing early". The earlier you start the gain will be more. This is simply due to the power of compound interest. I don't say start saving early, because mere saving is not going to help you in the long run. Inflation will eat away all your savings. Investing is the key word where one should be ready to take risk and put their money in potential stocks at periodic intervals. If you identify high worth stocks and keep invested, then your money will start working for you. Just believe every business exist in the world to earn profit. If you invested in the right business (stocks) then you are one among them going to share the gain.

Monitoring the investments:

The next big step is "Monitoring the investments". Why monitoring? As I said earlier, every business exists to earn profit. If they don't earn profit, they will be out of track and get buried in the competitive market over a period of time. On this journey you will get lost if you invested in loss making stocks. You need to track your stocks and play the game wisely to keep yourself in the profit layer. It is vital to watch, watch and watch your money everyday, every week and every month throughout the year, the same way you watch if someone works for you. Here the difference is, money is working for you.

Move to safer zone:

You have started early, invested wisely, monitored closely, moved the coins and gained profit. Now this is the time to move your eggs to the safer zone. How to move and where to move? This is the important decision for wealth creation as a result you are going to get financial freedom for life. You need to move your gains to the safer zone in a systematic way as you did while investing at periodic intervals. Again, its’ all depends on how much you accumulated, your age and risk appetite. I would suggest choose multiple assets such as real estate, Govt. bonds, gold, FD, debt funds etc.

When to Start?

The ideal time to start investing is from your 20's, if you could start earlier it is great. Invest systematically at periodic interval till your 40's. Start moving your eggs to safer zone from your 40's till you attain 45. Yes, you reached your goal, the financial freedom for life.

How much to Invest?

This is again depends on your requirements and life style quotient. Think, forecast, plan and decide. Set targets for yourself and review at periodic intervals.

Not Good at Stock Picking:

If you are not good at stock picking, then fine, leave the job to experts. There are number of good mutual funds available from leading fund houses. Analyze the funds, choose some of them and invest. Be aware, even you invested in mutual funds still you need to track your investments. Because it’s all your money, the step stones for your financial freedom.

Start investing today and let your money works for YOU and YOUR family forever....

Creating good environment for children

Parents responsibility in creating good environment for children
In general, the characters of our children are not by birth, but it has been built by environment where they are growing. They learn the habits from whom they are closely associated. As they spent more than 70% of the time with parents, obviously they take them as role model and try to replicate what parents do. Hence, it is very important for parents to behave properly in front of their children. They need to be very careful on the words they speak and the actions they perform.  There are certain DO's and DONT's parents should aware during their parenthood and act in more responsible way. This helps to lead a happy family and let children grow in more positive environment. It is each one of the parents' responsibility to create a good environment for their children to enjoy their childhood.

I’m busy – Your children are not your office colleagues to say ‘I'm busy’ when they come to you for anything. They don’t understand however busy you are, simply they need your time. If you keep using this phrase often, it will hurt them and they start distancing themselves from you. If you are really busy, take couple of minutes, tell them that you have to finish certain task and will get back to them in sometime. This makes them feel that you are listening and supporting them. Try to avoid this word ‘I'm busy’ as much as possible.

Never compare with other children – There is a famous saying 'The five fingers are not same'. Yes, each finger has unique purpose and value. Your children too have unique skills which you need to identify and make them excel. No point comparing them with other children and make them feel degraded. Your children could be good in studies or sports or playing music, it’s your responsibility to identify those interests and get them nurtured from early stage.

Listen to them – This is one of the clear miss from most of the parents, I noticed. When the child says something, don’t nod your head just as a custom of hearing. Listen to your children, they may need your guidance and support. There is a great difference between hearing and listening. If you truly listens them, they will be happy and they come close to you. You can see the bonding between you and your children growing thick over a period of time.

Parents fighting in front of children – This is strict no-no in front of your children. If you do, it will develop more aggressive and adamant behaviour in them. If there are any differences between spouses, you both have to find some private space to discuss and sort out the issues. Parents have to show them happy in front of their children. This makes them feel they are in safe and secure environment at home.

False commitments – This is again parents should never do with their children. If you are promising them anything, make sure you fulfill that promise. It will be good if you think twice before committing anything. For any reason, if you are not able to meet the promise, spend quality time with your children and explain them the situation to make them understand. Initially, they may feel disappointed, but they will understand.

Never discourage, always encourage – Encouraging children is always important, it is vital to develop self confidence in them. Parents have to keep feeding positive thoughts into their children. They need to feel the positive wave if you are around. It really helps them when they face this competitive world when they grow up. The discouragement should be completely avoided, if they are trying to do something really impossible, against the nature, then you need to spend quality time to explain them to understand.

All about Canvas Printing

All about canvas printing
I’m super excited to get the canvas printing done using my favorite picture that we captured during our last family vacation. As this picture is bright and colourful, I can imagine how beautiful it will be if I get it canvas printed and hang the frame in our living room. But, I was reluctant to find the store to get the printing done as it involves lot of efforts to find the reliable one. This was until I found the online store Canvas Factory, the professional printing expert in canvas printing. They made the entire process simple and easy on their website, all can be done by a click sitting conveniently at home. After selecting the size and style at Canvas Factory online store, just upload your favorite picture and check the preview online before confirming the order. They are reliable and have LiveChat support if you have any queries with your order. To help my readers of this blog, I would like to share few pointers on canvas printing as I learned from various sources.

What is Canvas Printing?

In simple words, canvas printing is to get the picture printed on the stretched canvas and fixed within a frame to display. The eye-catching canvas print gives the aesthetic look, mostly used in interior design to decorate the houses, commercial establishments. The canvas used for this printing is made up of highly durable cotton or polyester fabric. The cotton prints comes with high quality and polyester is more affordable for bold and colourful prints.

Choosing the photos

The quality of the canvas printing is highly depends on the photos we select to print. The photos should have high pixel count, bright and sharp. The higher pixel count per inch (300 dpi) helps to get better print. Always go with digital photo with large size, do not go for canvas printing using photos from Facebook, Whatsapp or photos taken using mobile phone with low resolution. Remember, the selection of photo is always subjective and check the background, focus and composition while selecting the photo for canvas printing.

Selecting the size and style

There are various sizes available to choose for canvas printing, broadly under square, rectangle and panoramic. Also, you can choose various styles such as single canvas print, split, wall display and collage form. The collage form is nothing but combining the related photos under one theme into a single layout. As you go for bigger size, make sure to have better quality photos with high resolution. 

Perfect framing

After getting the photos printed in the stretched canvas, time to select the choice of wrapping to display the canvas printing. There are two types of wrapping frames namely gallery and museum. In gallery wrapping, the canvas is stretched to the edges and pinned at the back. This way, we can see the image front and from the sides. The museum wrapping has the canvas stretched and fixed within the frame, the image can be seen with front view but not sideways.

This is all about canvas printing, I believe these tips helps you to choose the right photos, frame, size, and style to get your desired canvas printing done. The Canvas Factory online store makes your job easy by giving step by step options to select the photo, size and style to order the print and get the canvas print delivered at your doorsteps. Canvas print is the perfect gift for birthdays, wedding anniversaries, valentines’ day and any other special days you count on.

Can diet helps to reduce my weight
The moment you realize that you are getting overweight, you plan to go for a diet. Most of the time people tend to prepare the diet plan on their own from available sources. This is not advisable as there are various factors to look at before going for the diet to reduce weight. There is a misconception or perception that simply going for a diet reduce weight.

Take time to genuinely answer these questions

  • Is there a common healthy diet for everyone to follow?

There is no common diet plan which suits for everyone. The diet plan has to be customized to get the targeted benefits. Though you can find lot of tips on diet plan from Internet, it may not fit for your purpose. The diet plan highly depends on individual body type and condition. The moment you think about overweight, you decide to reduce the fat and carbohydrates in your food. But, the reality is different; it is not the fat, protein, or carbohydrates that making you fat. It is the inability of the human body cells to convert the foods into energy called metabolism. Hence, it’s getting stored as fat. To overcome this, you need to come out of ‘diet reduce weight’ perception and have right balance of food with appropriate ratio of fat, protein and carbohydrates to fuel your body metabolism to work. This cannot happen by just following a common diet plan, but with highly customized diet to meet your specific need.

Getting customized diet plan is a science, you need to acknowledge this and consult experienced professional to get your diet plan done. The dietician will calculate the BMI based on your weight and height, analyze the body type, and listen carefully your current food intake, lifestyle, medical condition to prepare a detailed diet plan. This is the best way to get your diet plan customized to suit your body type and health condition. Finding the right food for your body that can convert into energy is the only way to reduce the weight.

You need to take a pledge to follow the diet plan without any break to reap the full benefits. There are no shortcuts in weight reduction, you need to keep this in mind and work towards the goal with lot of patience and high level of perseverance.

Once you get the proper diet plan and you pledge to follow the diet diligently, you have to accommodate good physical activities such as walking, jogging, swimming or cycling. This could be anything related to cardio exercises and this has to be practiced at least five days in a week. If you can get your friends join you for this daily routine, it helps you to keep motivated.

To summarize this, if you go for a diet plan on your own without professional help it may not gives the desired result for you. You could be in one among the millions trying to do it on their own and failed, gained weight instead of losing. Remember, diet without scientific backing leads to food craving which results in overeating and no simple diet reduce weight to make you look better. Hence, it is advisable to follow well defined steps as outlined above,

Keep simple approach plan:

  • Evaluate the body type and health condition by expert
  • Get diet plan prepared by a professional
  • Pledge to follow the diet consistently
