10 Reasons You Have Failed To Protect Your Assets

If you are thin skinned and get insulted easily, this is not the right place for you. The chances are this is one of the reasons you haven’t been able to protect and grow your assets to begin with.

The purpose of this article is to help you learn what you are doing wrong so that you can start doing things right and learn how to protect your assets. The key is to acquire the knowledge and expert guidance you need to protect and preserve your wealth.

If not you, if not now, who do you expect to protect your assets while you are not doing the job you are supposed to?

Here’s the list of 10 reasons you have failed to protect your assets and what you can do about it.

1. The Proper Attitude – Are you one of those poor workaholics that think all you have to do is work 90 hours a week and you will become wealthy? It doesn’t matter how hard you work, if you are not protecting the wealth you have accumulated, you won’t have it for very long. Start paying attention to what you are doing with your assets. Start caring.

2. Your Accountant handles that – Exactly what do you expect your accountant to do if you are not telling him what you want done? He is not a mind reader. If he is such a brilliant financial advisor why is he working as an accountant? Let him know what your goals and objectives are concerning your wealth preservation.

3. Your Lawyer worries about protecting your wealth – A lawyer is supposed to get you out of trouble or keep you from getting you into trouble. What makes you think he is going to know how to protect your assets? You made the money; you have to tell him what to do to protect it.

4. You are not good at handling money – It’s time you added handling money to your skill sets. You are going to be doing it for the rest of your life. You were smart enough to make the money so you must be smart enough to learn what to do with it.

5. You’re lazy – Who isn’t lazy? You want to learn how to protect your assets so you can relax and take it easy. What do you want to do, work hard all your life?

6. The government and your wife take everything –You are not alone. Smart people with smart financial consultants can show you how saving on taxes can sometimes make you more money than growing your assets. What you do about your wife is your business.

7. You don’t have the time – You don’t have the time to live carefree? You don’t have the time to preserve, that which is rightfully yours for you and your family? You don’t have the time to be secure? What do you have the time for – failure? Make the time.

8. You’re not interested in money – Then why are you working so hard to acquire it? If you want it just to give away you should at least do it on your own terms. Have you taken the time to think out what you do want and what you are interested in? Does it cost any money to pursue your interests? Start caring.

9. All you like to do is work –Don’t you like to have fun and be happy? If working is fun to you then by all means continue to do it, but have you ever thought about all the fun you could have if you had enough assets to travel the world and not have to work?

10. You have inherited wealth from trust funds – And hopefully your children will too. Are you doing everything you possibly can to see to it that their inheritance is properly protected? Are you sure you are protecting your heirs as well as your parents protected you? Start planning for your future and your family’s.

Take the time to make a better life for you and your family. Take the time to secure your assets and your future. Take the time to be a winner. Failing to protect your wealth is not an option. There is never a good reason to do nothing and just hope for the best. It is time to adopt a positive attitude and start protecting your wealth with every ounce of smarts you and your advisors have.

It’s time to charge into the future with your best wealth preservation moves. It’s time to become a wealth protection hero. It’s time to discover the little wealth preservation secrets that can help you secure your assets.

Yes You Can Work At Home

You have probably wondered whether people like yourself in their fifties or sixties who are part of the new middle aged group can find profitable work from home opportunities on the Internet that they can turn into businesses of their own.

The answer is yes, but you have to be careful. There are a lot of scams out there and it is sometimes difficult to tell the hype from the real opportunities.

Be wary of extravagant claims that you can become an instant millionaire.

Be concerned about testimonials that look too good to be true, they probably are.

Be careful if you are told the offer is absolutely free. Somewhere along the line the promoter of the package has to make a profit by selling you something.

Watch out for unscrupulous operators that say you need only work a few minutes or hours a day to make a fortune.

Setting up a new work at home business on line is like any other business development start-up. It will take work, time, effort, and due diligence on your part, just as it would with any new business.

The place to begin I think is to determine what your special interests are and what you are good at.

Then look for a niche area on the Internet where you and your new Company can take advantage of your talents, and you can become a star and get noticed by google so lots of people or traffic will visit your site to see what you have to offer.

You don’t have to worry about not being a computer expert. There are plenty of programs out there that will show you what to do and even set up a Web site for you. The trick is to determine which opportunities are real, and what offers make the most sense to you.

Specifically, try and determine which package is going to get you the results you want without compromising your principals, or costing you a small fortune in what are called up sells or add on features that you weren’t told about initially. Eventually you may have to compromise between your desire for perfection, and the need to get things done in an efficient, timely and economical manner.

Try and pin down what is included in the offer you are looking at, and what the extras if any are going to be before you make a final decision. Do some research. Check what others are saying on google about the package or program you are interested in. Be careful that you aren’t just reading glorified advertisements. And remember that most programs come with a money guarantee in case you don’t think the product is worth what you paid for it.

If you don’t end up owning your own domain name than don’t do it. You will only be building a Web site for someone else. You might want to check out starting with a blog. They are easier to do then Web sites, you don’t need to know any html and you can monetize them. .

You can start your own Web site by yourself if you are really computer savvy, but the costs of needed programs such as auto responders, SEO optimization, tracking software, PPC advertising, and shopping carts can often be prohibitive when you are first starting out. The time it takes to operate and install these programs and develop sales literature can divert your attention from offering your audience valuable information and information products, which they may want to buy, and which will establish your relationship as an expert.

Sometimes it is better to take an established product and free Web site that programs in all the tools you need to make affiliate sales of other peoples products for a hefty commission, and concentrate your energies on delivering valuable free content to your visitors by writing articles and distributing them through the top article submission services so that people are attracted to your Web site by the information you have to offer. Then you have to get them to buy something or get them on an email list by offering them something of value.

Sometimes it pays to start out by using an established program. You can always add your own bells and whistles and personal flourishes once you have learned the basics.

Start out with the assumption that you are embarking on a new learning experience, and you and your new friends and customers will not be disappointed. Try and make it a shared learning experience – a cooperative effort.

Starting over with a new work from home business can be fun and profitable if you rely on the knowledge and experience that got you to this point in your life. Don’t question your own sound judgment or instincts. You can start a new career from home in your fifties and sixties. You can enjoy a new success as part of the new middle-aged group. You can start over and make a new beginning if you just have faith in yourself and the Almighty.
