Finance and Productivity Infographics
How often do you read about productivity and improving your efficiency? Since your here, I can only assume that you read about it pretty frequently, but where are you applying what your learning? Are you applying it to your job? Your side hustle? Your personal life?
What about the break room at work?
So how do you have a productive break? Well first off, no I’m not talking about cramming productivity book reading into a 5 minute break. That’s not a break, that’s just stressful. We have to remember the purpose of a break and how to make them as effective as possible. Let’s take a look at this informative, fun and well…pretty infographic (it is quite beautiful isn’t it?)…
Tax deductions can be weird in the first place, because it’s all too common for people to “stretch the truth” about what they actually used for their business and what they are just claiming to reduce their tax bill.
This goes beyond the usual meals, vehicles and tools that are often deducted and ventures into the world of deer meat, body oil and cat food.
If that sounds weird to you, well that’s only because it is, but hey, if it works go for it.
You may even get some new ideas for things to deduct from your taxes this year or next.
Here are 12 bizarre tax deductions with the explanations…
Warren Buffett is constantly in competition for the richest person in the world #1 spot.
And he is self made. That’s probably my favorite thing about him. He made his money through investing just like almost everyone else.
The difference is that he is really good at it. Which is why Berkshire Hathaway usually maintains about a 19% annual return. If you don’t own any shares, you should consider it, but you’ll probably want to go for their BRK-B stock since BRK-A trades for well over $200,000/share.
Before we check out the 10 lessons in the graphic, there are a few things that stand out…
I found a really interesting infographic about entrepreneurship, but it seemed sexist, so I posted an infographic about the single man’s finances. Because that makes sense.
In all seriousness, I don’t find this one to be sexist. It’s an interesting comparison between men and women’s spending habits.
Over half the adults in the United States are married, but what about the other half?
This is a look into the finances of the single man. It’s also a look into the finances of the single woman. As much as people think women are known to be shoppers (you discriminators, you!), it turns out that men actually spend more than women on almost everything.
You’ll see what I mean below…
From Warren Buffett to Oprah Winfrey, there are some common traits in the habits of the richest people in the world.
And I’m not talking about the habit of inheriting a lot of money.
That seems to be one of the main reasons people think they can’t become wealthy. They think that the rich come from rich families and they never had to work for anything in their life.
Not true. At all. In fact, most of the richest people either work or have worked harder than any of us and that’s exactly why they are where they are.
As you’re about to see, 68% of the 400 Americans on the Forbes 2013 “billionaires list” are considered “self-made” billionaires. Meaning they built, rather than inherited their fortune.
That doesn’t really tie in to the belief that the rich didn’t work for their money. Of course, as we all know, the point is to make your money work for you, but sometimes that takes work in itself!
Let’s see what we can learn from the habits of the wealthiest people in the world…
This is my favorite time of the year, as it is for many of you.
Today, I figured I would lighten the mood a little bit.
We’ll get back to improving our finances and productivity tomorrow, but for today, it’s a time to relax, appreciate and enjoy everything we are blessed with.
Spend time with your family. Get stuffed with Christmas dinner. Give freely and enjoy this interesting infographic…
“I believe in science.” -Esqueleto, Nacho Libre
I’m all about science-backed productivity.
From how habits are formed to the time of day we are most productive, I think science plays a huge role in helping us become more productive.
That’s exactly why I think it’s important to see some actual studies and how they pertain to your productivity…
Mornings are my favorite time of the day.
I can get more done in the first 2 hours of the morning than I can in the next 8 hours of the workday.
Since I’ll be publishing an article tomorrow on successful mornings (I’ll even be sharing my morning ritual), I thought it would be appropriate to share this awesome infographic today.
Let’s quickly go over a few key things to morning time…
Cloning simply means to create duplicate of anything.
The term IT Cloning was derived from the biology term “cloning” where clone of any animal can be created using any particle of the animal.
But IT cloning refers to the duplicity of any website or application in terms of its design and functionality.
Clone websites don’t use the code of the original one. Developers design it from scratch using their own code.
IT cloning has become very common and it can be seen in our daily life, with companies like Airbnb & Wimdu, Flipkart & Snapdeal, Alibaba & Amazon, Snapchat & Bolt, Whatsapp & Telegram etc…
Now the question is “How are clone websites more benefited than original websites?”
I think a real life success story can explain it in a better way…
If you’re like me, you are always finding ways to be more productive.
Increasing your productivity is one of the quickest ways to accomplish your goals.
If you want to get better or learn about something new, you will need to “buy some time”.
We all have the same amount of time in a day.
It’s about how we use that time…
Do you invest in mutual funds?
They are a great way to diversify your money across a spectrum of companies and industries.
But what kind of funds should you be investing in?
Which one is better?
The bottom line is this:
Which type of fund will earn you a greater return on your investment?
Let’s take a look…
Making money without a job.
Yeah, that’s a thing.
It’s actually pretty common.
There are many ways to make money without and job and then there are the ways you always hear about (blogging perhaps…) that don’t seem realistic.
Like anything, it depends on how much time and effort you put into it.
Here are more than 10 different ways to make money without a job…
Should you refinance your home? Is it worth it?
That depends! But should you look into it? Yes!
It’s amazing what 1% can save you over 10, 20 or 30 years.
This is a sweet infographic that breaks down exactly what 1% could mean for a refinance…
I just published an awesome guest post, which was an inspiring story about working full-time while paying for college.
I think it’s only appropriate that I follow it up with an awesome infographic about the debt of college.
If you are considering college, you will most likely incur some degree (no pun intended) of debt.
This is the question we face: Is the degree worth the debt?
It’s a black and white answer. The answer is yes.
Well…sometimes it’s yes…other times it may be no.
Did I say black and white? What I meant was…
