Is Mint.com a good way to manage my finances? I've decided to begin tracking my income/expenditures, and I'm looking at mint.com, or perhaps just using an excel template. Any opinions on these or other good methods of tracking personal finances?
>>1045954 i think i have a basic understanding of how it works and a couple of my friends have gotten into and they've turned out alright with it. I was just wondering if there was anything i could do to better myself for it, either through other peoples personal experience or something who has a better understanding than i do
Lol Country with entirely different economic circumstances to USA uses USA currency and you make no reference to that particular countries cost of living etc. and make the assumption that dollar for dollar you're worse off no questions asked
Ausfag living in USA paid in Aud - mate, I'm the definition of fucked, you're rolling in cash in Ecuador
If you read the thread fellow Ausfag, I'm asking for advice on how to minimise costs regarding to the actual exchange of my salary, as its something that needs to be done regardless of the circumstances or economic situation in Ecuador.
possibly info on things like...
the buy/sell spread? frequency of exchange? economic predictions for USA and implications on USD? Economic predictions for NZ and implications for NZD? Futures???
>>1045894 >>1045894 Do you think it could grow stronger? How viable would it be as a long term career, if that is even possible. Ive kinda been considering it, since my current blue collar job isn't that interesting to me.
You have to put out content basically for free to draw a following that is strong enough to ensure that you get people willing to pay for what you release, and big enough that people don't care that your basically keeping content behind a paywall. Then you have to either release that stuff hidden behind a paywall after a certain amount of time or release content for free that isn't shit every now and then.
Really, its something that only benefits people who have already put the effort in before... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So I've been long contemplating starting my own business. Not interested in something sexy, just something that pays the bills and makes my hard work not contribute to some other assholes pay check. The largest hurdle to me seems to be finding that gap in your market. If you have started your own business, how did you find that gap?

So, in this thought, you've never thought about what to do? You realize that comes first, right? The birth of a formal, incorporated, business is derived from necessity. It's not something you do first, it should be an afterthought. The consequence of a good idea.

I have definitely considered many things to do. Renting fences, outsourced clerical work, landscaping, independent consulting, etc. The question is more about how someone has identified the necessity You say having the idea comes first, but I think recognizing the opportunity does, and that's really the question. Starting a business in an over saturated market definitely increases the chance of failure.
Also, obviously someone else is always going to make some money. I was referencing the corporate culture bullshit.
It sounds unrealistic, but do any good paying work at home jobs exist? I'm a shut-in but I have to get some kind of job for money, and I would like something where I don't have to leave the house, at the least not very often.
>>1045858 Yes software devs of all flavors can work from home and do very well. The bad news is that you need to have years of experience and a proven track record in your area. So you're still gonna have to hit that real world treadmill for 5-10 years. No one is gonna gamble on an entry level guy working from home. Face to face mentoring from experienced devs is invaluable
I need advice from businessmen. I will study an open degree at open university. What is the best and most effective yet versatile module combination? For my level one I wanted to pick essential mathematics 1 and 2, management practise and professional communication in business.
