Tim Noakes’ Banting diet is currently a hot topic all over the world.
I find it amazing to see with what excuses people can come up not to try and live a more healthy life.
I am not a strict diet person. I don’t like diets. I just changed a couple of things on the menu and lost 14 Kg in about 3 months.
I see what people post all over the Internet and seems to me there is a general misconception about the whole thing.
I often see people say you may eat as much meat and fat as you like.
I think it is important to read the book because above statement is far from true.
If you read the book you will see that you eat much smaller portions of meat as most people think. You must eat fat because you get your energy from fat. Continue reading →
I never liked Binaries, so I am not sure exactly why I went against my own judgement and gave this a try.
I think it is because of this guy’s brilliant video on his web site. He warns you about all the false promises and all the programs that do not work. So I thought I might as well take a small risk and give it a try.
The web site is thebinaryinsider.com
So I deposited 200 pounds, which is the minimum amount you can deposit.
The first alarm bell went off when my bank’s fraud department called me just after I made the payment to ask me whether I know about the transaction.
My funds were in the account and I activated the trading robot.
The first trade was a loss. But I decided to give it a month and see. The next 4 were winning trades.
But then the next day a very sleek salesman from LBinary.com phoned and said that he see I deposited 200 pounds, but he tries to persuade me to deposit more. He said he will be my own personal broker and teach me step by step to trade binaries. Continue reading →
If you ever wanted to start a new business and needed cash to get it off the ground, you will know how hard it is to find capital to get a great idea started.
The banks only want to borrow money to people who already have money and even then they are very reluctant to lend money to a new business.
You can borrow money on the black market, but normally the lenders are sharks who charge you interest in the region of 24% per year or they want the bulk of shares in the company or the idea you started.
This is where crowd funding can help.
Crowd funding is by definition, “the practice of funding a project or venture by raising many small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the Internet.”
There are some web sites where you can register as either an investor or a business seeking funding.
For some time now I have been frustrated with Acrobat Reader. It is a big slow program which likes to make huge updates. It uses more than 100 Mb of disc space.
I once caught while it was trying to do an automatic update to the tune of about 110 Mb. At the time I did not know about it and soon learned that the default setting on it is to do automatic updates. If you do not know to always go and switch off Acrobat’s automatic update feature then it will eat all your bandwidth.
I know in 1st world countries bandwidth is not a problem because you get it for free or pay virtually nothing for it, but in South Africa it is hell expensive and you cannot allow a program like Acrobat to steal your bandwidth. Continue reading →
We often see newspaper articles saying that online sales are rising. More and more people are buying goods online.
I think people are working all day, then sit in traffic and only get home after the shops closed. So they do not have time to visit the shops and that is why online shops make so much sense. You order your goods and it gets delivered at work or home.
If I look at what online shops in other countries have to offer I think online shopping in South Africa is at the tip of the iceberg . There are still lots of potential for us.
Can you really make money with an online shop?
It all depends on your setup and the product you are selling. If you run a professional service with good and fast delivery and the correct product with a big enough profit you will make money. Continue reading →
