Budget - A budget is an estimate of the expected income and expenditure for any time period. It is important for everyone to have a budget and to live on it.

A mega Halloween hurricane being dubbed "Frankenstorm" has residents up and down the East Coast on edge. Hurricane Sandy is already responsible for 21 deaths in the Caribbean and it's now setting its sights on the US. Residents from Virginia to Maine are prepping this weekend for the long, drawn out hurricane, expected to make landfall sometime between late Sunday and Tuesday.
Don't let scammers cause even more damage...
First, everyone has to get through the hurricane and prepare properly.
When the warnings first go out about where a storm will strike, rescue personnel and emergency management agencies gust into action. Unfortunately, so do scammers.
Now, we all think that we're savvy enough not to fall for the tactics of some con-artist contractor, but consider the panic-stricken state you would be in if a storm tore through your neighborhood. Imagine standing in your driveway, shocked because half your roof was torn off or your windows were blown out. It...Read More »

In the study, researchers asked people about their confidence levels in elementary, middle, and high school, as well as college and how they feel now. Those who were more confident earned more-and got promoted faster.

Not only that, people who described themselves as extroverted, open to experiences, agreeable, and neurotic were also more motivated and earned more than other people. We don't really get the neurotic part, but okay…
So, if you want to earn more cash (and, really-who doesn't?), be confident around the office. That means not being afraid to talk to your boss or speak up in a meeting. Your wallet will thank you.

I am living proof that the lack of money or financial resources should not be an excuse for any mom trying to start their own business. After my daughter was born and I decided to quit my career as a TV producer, the recession hit my house. Four years later, I own one thriving boutique social media agency (the first of its kind), a successful blog that has even churned out a book, and several other business deals in the works. Since everything I have done has had absolutely no funding or financial investment, I've had to be very creative and resourceful in how I invest my time and the money that comes in from the work that's done. There are many tools out there that make it much easier for me to keep track of my daily finances. Here's a list of 6 financial and productivity tools to get you started. - By Ana Flores

- The Daily Muse | Work + Money | Thu, Oct 25, 2012 1:58 PM EDT | Commentsmajorly stuck in a rut or in a job you hate-or think there's got to be something better than what you're doing right now?
I used to live a double life-working all day at a job I hated and then coming home and being a "job applicant" after work and on weekends. I was totally stuck and didn't know how to get out. I didn't care (or really even know) what jobs I applied to-all I knew is that I needed a change. It took years for me to finally figure out that this approach didn't work. The truth is, I needed to understand myself better before I could understand how to job hunt. And as soon as I did that, my dream jobs just starting popping up left and right. Eventually, I didn't even have to apply for jobs-they just came to me.
Take it from me-there are many mistakes that job searchers make when trying to get out of a career rut. But there are also solutions. Here are six things you can do-this week-to get out of that ...Read More »
