Discuss what is expected on both sides

Don’t accept a project without discussing what is expected on both sides. 

Make sure you understand what your client wants you to do, how much time they are giving you to do it, and to what extent they expect you to include them in the process. If you think their expectations are unrealistic, discuss alternative timelines or adjustments to the project.

It’s a good idea to give each client a written copy of your process, including milestones where you’ll expect payments. This will keep them from calling you to ask about the next step, and it may prevent payment delays.

Loyalty programs

There are 8 million online stores in the world. This means that there are more choices to choose from.

If you sift through the stores according to your unique criteria, including price, location and service, you may still end up with several stores you can choose from. If one of these stores have a loyalty program, they may sway you to order from them to gain additional benefits.

How Much Money Do I Need to Start Investing in Stocks?

Technically, there’s no minimum amount of money needed to start investing in stocks. But you probably need at least $200 — $1,000 to really get started right.

Most brokerages have no minimums to open an account and get started buying stocks. So theoretically, you could open an account today with just $1.

That said, there are three factors that set a natural floor on how little money you can start investing with. In general, you should have enough money to:

  1. Afford a single share of stock.
  2. Properly diversify your portfolio.
  3. Protect your profits from trading fees.

Face the Music

The first step to managing financial stress is having the courage to actually do something about the situation. Many are scared to look at their bank account balance, but we need to make an honest evaluation of the situation by doing the following:

  • Make a list of your liabilities that's burdening you (car loans, investment loans, etc.,)
  • Organize your financial accounts. If you don't have an online account for each of your banks, investments, or credit cards, make one for easier tracking
  • Make time to assess your accounts and establish what needs to happen moving forward
