2020 has been a rollercoaster of a year, to say the least, we have become accustomed to a new normal riddled with uncertainty. Our lives have drastically changed and we are wondering if things will get back to how they were before. The housing market has been no exception to this uncertainty and change, we’ve seen house price growth slump across the globe leaving many of us wondering whether 2021 is going to be the year that house prices bounce back.

 

Pre-Covid

Firstly it’s important to consider the fundamental factors that set house prices. Starting from a simple stance of supply and demand we expect prices to reflect the incomes based in an area or commutable from that property. This is called the income bid-price spread and has been the dominant traditional theory widely recognized by economists. That is that as more jobs there are in an area the more people there are with money to purchase housing. Another big factor affecting house prices that we’ve seen play a part, especially in recent years, is interest rates and access to finance. Again acting on the demand side of the equation in a similar way is that as people have access to mortgages they can afford to spend more on a house which pushes prices up. When interest rates are lower it makes larger loans manageable on lower incomes than previously would be as the monthly repayments get smaller.

 

United States housing stock has always been seen as a pretty safe deposit of capital by foreign entities, particularly those from unstable currency areas and those living with political risk. As long as this is true there is always going to be pressure supporting the housing market. The dollar being the global reserve currency, highly liberalized financial markets, and loose capital controls make American assets attractive. When the dollar loses value against other currencies it makes the price of American assets cheaper to foreign entities too, so those from abroad who were thinking of buying a second home in America will find their money goes further. Experts generally believe that even with these influences and distortions the overvaluing of real estate in the United States is modest at best.

 

Covid effects

As social distancing has been made paramount to prevent the spread of the virus the move to working from home has been accelerated at an unprecedented rate. The fact that a large volume of the workforce now no longer need to live anywhere near their place of employment spells a huge structural change in demand for housing. The suggestion is that prices in urban centers that host high concentrations of well-paying office work are going to see their value stagnate and fall relative to the rest of the market. As many people are laid off demand falls, businesses are delaying investment until there is some certainty too corporate purchases of property are being delayed which in turn dampens down demand. Since the global financial crisis banks have had their lending rules tightened and restrictions placed on how precariously they can balance their position. Chiefly relevant to house prices is the lack of leverage and risk of default now relatively absent compared to 2008 we can assume that a serious crash is very unlikely.

 

It’s hard to see a clear reflection of the effects to some extent as the volume of transactions slowed down during the height of the lockdown and would probably have been biased towards the distressed quick sales required by those hardest hit by the pandemic.

In the United Kingdom, the Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak granted a tax break on the stamp duty paid on house sales on the first £500,000 ($646,000) of the property’s value to address the slowdown on the other side of the pacific. Famously the legal red tape and bureaucracy can make transactions very expensive to implement and any cutting back of this would help the market without making anyone worse off.  In any case, the housing market is structurally changing and new types of business are booming the house guys in Washington DC take advantage of a relator free model to name just one-way value can be added to property without commissions sucking money out of everyone’s pockets.

 

Post-Covid

Moving forward it is hard to know how much of the investment that could not happen because of lockdown is an investment that has been delayed or has been canceled because it could be the case that a large amount of activity has been pent up only to be released in 2021 in a similar fashion to what happened after the financial crash. On both sides of the equation, there are multiple factors pushing house prices both ways. Nobody intelligent can conclusively say which forces are stronger and ultimately predict a movement either way.

Investing in businesses is a great way to build a stable income and advance your investment portfolio. But, like anything involving money, it can be a bit of a gamble. The investments might not pay well enough to make it worth the time. Or, even worse, you could lose money on an investment.

Luckily we have been in this game for many years, and in that time we have learned a few things about what investments are stable and profitable, and which ones aren’t. And we are going to share with you 5 Extrmley Protiftable Industria that you should consider investing in if you are looking to turn a profit.

 

The Cleaning Industry

This one might surprise you, but the cleaning industry is actually one of the most profitable ones out there. The biggest reason being it is a business that is always in high demand. In fact, as cities advance and develop, the demand for professional cleaning services also increases.

But these companies are always looking for investors. While they are profitable once they have established themselves, they need initial start-up capital. When you are screening companies to see if they are worth investing in, you should check they know what they are doing. Do they know the right type of vacuum for hardwood floors? Do they know how to use industrial carpet cleaners? If not, they might not be worth your money.

 

Independent Cafes

In the last five years, we have seen a significant rise in the number of independent coffee shops. People are growing bored with chain stores. They want the sense of community and economic benefits that come with shopping locally and supporting local businesses.

And this means they are extremely profitable. But opening and running a cafe is hard work. But you can avoid that by simply acting as an investor for someone else’s business. But, like with any investment, you want to make sure they have a solid business plan and are knowledgeable about the local community. If they are, then you should consider investing.

 

Tech-Support

We live in an age of technology. More and more people are automating their lives. And the sad truth of tech is that it breaks down randomly. Or the user has an accident that leaves it damaged. So tech-support firms are currently booming. Making them one of the safest and most profitable investments you can make. You will want to make sure you are investing in a good firm though. Try to avoid firms that mainly out-source their support hotlines or don’t have an on-site repair center.

 

E-Sports

I imagine you weren’t expecting to see this on the list. But E-Sports teams are continually growing in popularity as the E-Sports scene grows. And sponsors for E-Sports teams are finding themselves coming into a lot of money. So you might want to consider investing in a popular team or finding a new and up-and-coming team. If they make it big you are in for a massive payday. This investment might be a bit riskier than the others, but it can be one of the most profitable.

 

Courier Services

Malls are dying. There is no sugar coating it. People have turned to order everything online. And because of that, courier services are booming. So you might want to consider investing in one of the major delivery services. As the years’ progress, they are only going to get busier and turn more of a profit, so you will want to get in on this at the ground level.

 

 

More than twenty years ago we lived in a world without the internet. Then, slowly, we were introduced to the Information Superhighway. It was clunky, slow, and was made up of only a few websites. At the time not everyone thought it would catch on.

Now, we live in two worlds. The real world. And the virtual world that is backed up and supported completely by the internet. This virtual world has become all-knowing and ever-present. We are constantly bathing in Wi-Fi. And we, as a species, love it. It has allowed us to stay connected like never before. It allows people to share content and learn so much. People can teach themselves new skills or order anything their heart desires.

And one of the biggest aspects of the internet is its potential for businesses to make money. And that is what we want to look at today. More specifically we want to walk you through the information you need to turn your YouTube content into a Thriving Business.

 

Content

Content is king on Youtube. But it is also oversaturated with content. Everything from intricate technological reviews right down to simple lunch vlogs. YouTube is a wealth of information that is accessible to everyone. So the first thing you need to do is know what content you plan to post.

You then need to make sure the content is of good quality. People don’t want to watch the shaky hand-cam footage of your day. So, like any business, you need to invest in some good kit. This might include sets and props if you are planning to make something a bit more intricate.

You also need to make sure you are posting on a tight schedule. This doesn’t mean you have to upload every day. But you need to be uploading consistently and on time. People will lose interest if you are too flitty with it.

You will be making money based on how popular your content is. So try to make it relevant and engaging. And try to use a format that has room for companies to sponsor you to include their products in a subtle way.

 

Establish Your Brand

When you set out to make money from YouTube you need to be aware that you are now going to be a brand. Even if you are posting vlogs about your own life. You will be selling yourself. So you need to lean into it and support it as best you can.

The biggest thing is to never be ashamed of your brand. You need to be confident in it and make sure you are selling it as best you can. People will watch the content that resonates with them. And you won’t be able to please everyone. So once you find your niche, stick with it. Loyal fans are worth infinitely more than new fans any day of the week.

 

Bring in the Views

Views are how you will actually make money off YouTube. Both through monetizing your videos and also sponsorship deals from companies. But before any of that happens you need to get the initial views. One way to do this is to buy views. This is a tool used by a lot of big-name YouTubers. We find that themarketingheaven.com is the best site to buy YouTube views from as opposed to other, less secure sites.

Another way is to make sure you are sharing your video as much as possible. You also want to spend a lot of time watching and commenting on other people’s videos. Being an active member of the YouTube community is a great way to build connections and advance your business.

 

 

Our world is driven by capitalism. You need only walk down any high street or through any mall to see just how much our culture is driven by money. And we aren’t saying that is a bad thing. Sure, capitalism has its issues. But so does any societal system.

Capitalism has many benefits for both our culture as a whole and on the individual level as well. But our society only functions as it does because of the key building block holding everything together. The Banks.

Love them or hate them, Banks are everywhere. Every mall, every high street. Every metropolitan cityscape or small-town village. Nowhere is safe from the spread of banks. And a common question we get asked is this: How do banks make their money?

 

Understanding Banks

It is easy to think that banks seem to function without actually making money. They simply store your money and move it around. So how do they pay their staff, afford rent and upkeep? And how is it profitable for anyone to become a banker?

We have spoken to a few experts, such as those at blutin and at Smythes to better understand exactly how banks turn a profit. We are going to break it down for you in simple terms.

 

Loans

This is the key moneymaker for any bank. Loans. Anyone can walk into a bank and apply for a loan. Of course, you need to get the bank’s approval with a solid reason for the loan. And the bank will want to be sure you can pay it back.

All banks will have an interest rate attached to the loan. This is unavoidable. This is how they make money. Say you take out a loan for $100. With interest you could end up paying back $120 to the bank eventually, making a nice $20 profit for the bank.

Now imagine that on a scale of thousands of dollars interest per day. A bank only brings in as much money as they are willing to lend out.

 

Investing

While a physical bank is often designed to store and manage your money, the companies that own the bank will have their hands in many different avenues. Investments and stocks are one area these companies love to dabble in. And where do they get the money?

From you. When you store your money with a bank, you are giving them permission to spend it. Relax, they don’t actually spend your physical cash. While it is in their care, they will use it to invest and bring in profit. This profit is returned to you as interest. The more money you leave with a bank, the more interest it accrues. It’s a win-win situation and a great way for both the bank and you to profit.

 

Mortgages

Mortgages are just very specific loans. They are for buying property exclusively and follow different repayment rules to a traditional loan. The reason for this is due to the size of the money being borrowed and the nature of the investment. Since you will be living in your purchase, the bank is sure you aren’t doing a runner with the money, so the repayment scheme isn’t as taxing (although it is still noticeable) and like a normal loan, the bank profits off a mortgage in the form of interest on your repayments. And, if you can’t pay up, they can simply take the property and sell it for profit as well.

We hope this has highlighted how banks make their money in a helpful and insightful manner.

There is no doubt that the effects of the horrific start to 2020 have been hitting everyone pretty hard financially. Many people have been left unemployed which has made taking care of general costs like housing and food pretty difficult, especially due to the country’s poor welfare payment system. Because of the personal economic struggles that people are facing, they are less inclined to purchase unnecessary items and so many businesses are starting to feel the toll. Though all businesses are feeling the strain of the economic crisis that the country is currently facing, nobody is suffering more than smaller businesses, and here is why.

 

Government funding

The government has not completely ignored the struggles that businesses have started to face and so have begun to offer grants to businesses to ensure their survival during these difficult times. This may sound like a useful gesture, however, they haven’t been very thoughtful when giving out these grants. They have ironically given these grants to bigger businesses, such as Mcdonalds, that don’t even really need the support right now due to their ability to still offer their services to the public. Smaller businesses already don’t have the influx of cash that a lot of bigger businesses have, so without that government financial aid, they are basically just surviving out of their slowly dwindling savings.

 

No contact procedure

You also have to take into account that a lot of small businesses aren’t just retail businesses, but are businesses that offer a service. However, due to the current social distancing measures that are in place, lots of small businesses that offer a physical service are not able to operate. A good example of a business like this is a hairdresser that needs to make physical contact in order to complete the service.

 

There are also a large number of small businesses that require entry into the home in order to operate. So for example, pest control businesses such as yalepest depend on completing home surveys in order to complete their jobs. However, rules that exclude people from entering households make this a difficult task. Because of this, lots of businesses such as pest control, plumbers and decorators are really taking a hit and are even ending operations indefinitely.

 

Niche Businesses

Most of the businesses that we would consider to be ‘small businesses’ are usually labeled as so due to their niche appeal. These businesses already trade with a smaller amount of people due to their lack of necessity. An example of a business like this would be something a little odder like ‘Organic Home Fragrances’ or other businesses along those lines. Businesses like this are really being hit as their already quite small client list is being damaged by the economic issues that people are facing.

 

However, there has been more social outreach to save businesses that are a little quirkier, in order to maintain the character that they bring to certain communities.

 

Lack of postage opportunities

A lot of bigger businesses have simply decided to move a lot of their product sales online in order to keep their business afloat. This is an excellent idea for those that are able to do this but have however become a major issue for smaller businesses that can’t do so. Because people are trying to avoid leaving the house unnecessarily for safety purposes, the use of online shopping has only increased. Because of this, businesses that don’t operate online are being forgotten about. These businesses are usually the smaller local shops that simply don’t have the finances or resources to do so. These businesses are really struggling and so it may be worth considering giving them a little more support.

 

It is in our basic human nature to embellish, and this is especially true with our resumes. Be it with a phony love of horse riding or a fake love of socializing; and in the current employment climate, there is a feeling that you need to lie to put yourself ahead of the competition. This employment competition has led to a dramatic increase in people putting larger and larger lies in their resumes. This is where people have started to cross the line by lying about experience or qualifications, which is an extremely dangerous habit that will get you into trouble. This passage will aim to convince you to stick to honesty and explain why it truly is the best policy.

 

You Will get Found out

Businesses are getting wiser and wiser to your tricks and if you lie on your resume, I am sorry to say that you will get found out. Think about it, if you tell a company that you have a great ability in software management, but you can barely get past python, then they are obviously going to be able to tell that you are lying, and let me tell you, you will not be employed for a second longer. Companies have even started investing in artificial background checks, like the ones offered at https://medium.com/@marco.pargo/employment-background-check-fcra-compliance-artificial-intelligence-c2d01fcd3eed. so if you think you can beat a million-dollar AI background check then be my guest, but chances are you will get caught out.

 

Lying Will Stop Your Career Progression

This one is quite simple; how can you expect to improve yourself if you lie on your resume. Companies now offer their employees skill and qualification training, and if said company thinks you already have the skills and qualifications why would they invest in your training. Honesty allows for a company to know exactly where you are at, and how they should best invest in your future.

 

A Clear Conscience

Do you know how unsatisfying lying truly is, you will be sat in a job that you know you do not deserve. If you stick to your principles and remain honest then you will happily know that you were the best man or woman for the job and got the nod for no other reason apart from your ability. You will remain satisfied knowing your hard work and perseverance led you to this point. Which leads nicely into my final point.

 

A Sense of Achievement

Finally, you will know what it feels like to work for something and truly achieve it. You will receive such a confidence boost knowing it was you alone that did it. This feeling of accomplishment will put you in the right step for the rest of your life, giving you the understanding that if you put your mind towards anything you can do it, and that you are your own biggest asset.

 

I hope that this passage has convinced you that honesty is key. Not only is it highly likely that you will be discovered, but if you aren’t you will be living an inauthentic life, and who wants that.

As we know, exercise is important to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and keeping your body in good shape as you age. However, if you are someone that has a busy work schedule it can feel hard to try and fit a dynamic work out into your schedule. It can be difficult to allocate time outside of work and it’s not like you can fit exercise into your work schedule, or can you?  Here are 6 Steps to Help fit exercise into your busy work schedule.

 

Abandon the chair

If you’re someone who works at a desk all day, you’re really not doing your body any good. A good way to combat this is by abandoning the chair and installing a walking desk. This means that your body isn’t just sitting unused all day, as you can actually move around while you get some work done. If you decide that you want to do this, then you may have to consider why you should wear compression socks.  If you’re on your feet all day, your body may start to feel the effects, and pressure may build in your legs. Compression socks are a great way to combat this and will improve the Blood flow to your heart, making you healthier overall.

 

Use the stairs

This is something that people often neglect when going about their daily business at work, but you can benefit massively from choosing to take the stairs instead of using the lift. The lift may be a tempting option if you want to get somewhere fast, but the small change of using the stairs instead of the lift can really benefit your health in the long run. Sometimes using the stairs can be faster too, as when it comes to using the lift you have to wait for people to get in and out which can really be annoying.

 

Walk to Work

If you live at a reasonable distance from your work, why not walk? Walking is a very good way to stay in shape and walking instead of driving or taking the bus will also save you a lot of money in the long run. It will also help the environment if you choose to walk also, which may tempt you into choosing to walk.

 

10-Minute Exercises

If you are someone who works long hours then it may seem unreasonable to consider fitting in time to exercise. Now, a quick solution for this is to do a number of quick exercises in place of one big exercise session.  This means, instead of doing a full 30-minute workout, take 10 minutes 3 times during the day to do short exercise routines. You can find plenty of short, high energy work out videos available online. Or you can make up some of your own, activities such as push-ups and sit-ups are great for this.

 

Work out with Coworkers

If you have a small business meeting ahead of you, why not make it a fun game of tennis where you can get some exercise done while hashing out any new business plans. This is a great way to fit a work out into your day, but also get to know your coworkers in a competitive environment.

 

Get your Office Active

The more people in your office that take on your health kick, the easier it’ll be to fit exercise into your work schedule. A fun thing that people are doing all around the world is office exercise time, this consists of all of the office getting active at a specific time. This can be anything from completing a lap of the office or doing a little dance, it can be a very fun activity.

A new desk is also a great way to spruce up your office, make sure it has some handy drawers and you’re all set.

The foodservice industry is one of the most consistently popular and resilient industries in existence. Everything from fast food up to the highest Michelin star restaurants, there is something for everyone. And as the changing digital world affects the high-street as more and more people move to purchase online, restaurants remain full to the brim. And opening a restaurant can be one of the most fulfilling and rewarding ventures anyone can undertake. Whether your passion lies with food or business, opening a restaurant is always a good idea. But it is also one of the most difficult ventures you can undertake. So below I will be highlighting the top 5 things you need to make sure you have handled before you step into the foodservice industry.

The Paperwork

Before you put anything down on a menu or even start whipping up your dishes, you need to make sure you have all the busy work done. Running a restaurant is more than just the food you make. You will be buying equipment and furniture. Hiring staff and creating contracts. Taking out restaurant insurance and getting your certificates in health standards. So let’s break this down.

Firstly you want to get the more important factors looked into. Insurance is the big one. You will want to make sure you are covered against all eventualities, including fire and crime, so finding good coverage is vital. Next, you will need to apply for your COOSH certificate which allows you to keep and use chemicals on site. These will be needed for cleaning. You will also need to make sure you have someone who is first aid trained on-site, so it is wise to take the course yourself and look into buying a course package for your staff. Hiring a lawyer to write up your staff contracts is a good idea and then you can get to the fun part of decorating, which leads to the next aspect.

The Look

When it comes to the food industry, the look is almost as important as the food. People don’t want to be eating in a shabby and bland looking room. They want to soak up the atmosphere. They want their dinner to be an experience. That is what you need to present to them. An experience. To that end, you need to know what style of food you are creating. Italian? Thai? French? It could be an idea to lean into the culture you are cooking and decorate around that. Or if your food is less cultural and more type-specific then you may want to simply create a relaxing, family environment. If the mood you want to achieve is high dining or romance, look at going for deeper reds and candles. This is an important decision so you will want to plan, plan and plan. And always make sure your menu melds well with your look. Which leads to the next part.

The Menu

Your menu will be your main attraction. If you are a chef then you will most likely be creating this menu yourself. If you aren’t you will want to make sure your head chef is creating something tasty and affordable. You will want to know the tastes you are trying to present to your customers. But the biggest piece of advice is this: keep it simple. Do not create a menu with thirty or so options. Focus on creating a smaller selection of starters, mains and desserts. This will allow your chefs to shine with the dishes, will let your customers decide quicker and they will always have an amazing experience. It is important to keep things fresh with the food, this goes for both the ingredients and the menu. Don’t be afraid to make daily or weekly specials that change. It will let frequent diners have something to look forward to and will flex your restaurant’s skill.

Staff

When it comes to the food industry, while the chefs are the heart of the operation, they cannot work alone. You will have a variety of staff member working for you. Everything from waiters to dishwashers. And all of them are as important as the other. Your waiters will be the face of your restaurant, so it is vital you find people who are positive, friendly but also resilient. Customer service can be a tough industry and those working in it will need thick skin. Also, you will want a Kitchen Porter who is hardworking and consistent. A kitchen without a functioning dishwashing station will not function. You need to make sure your staff know the menu, know the prices and know-how the restaurant functions so they can be as productive as possible.

Drinks

This is an important aspect of the menu, so important it requires its own section. Drink goes with food as a fish goes with water. Everyone from the casual diner to the wine expert loves a tipple with their meal. So you need to make sure you have a varied and solid selection. Don’t be afraid to ask a wine expert on some choices that can pair with your menu. And make sure you have a selection of other alcohols and spirits available. On top of all this, you will need to have non-alcoholic alternatives for children and non-drinkers as well.

Starting a Drop Shipping Business is a great way to invest in your future. It is a modern way of bringing in income and flexing your business mind. Below is a brief guide to getting started in the world of Drop Shipping.

Select a Product

The great thing about Drop Shipping is you never have to handle the product yourself. You are simply working as the middleman allowing customers to purchase products directly from the wholesaler.

To this end, your first move is to decide what you will be selling and from where. For example, if you were looking to sell customized silicone wristbands you might look at partnering yourself with a company like SleekWristbands.com.

Once you’ve decided on what you will be selling you simply have to get the wholesaler on board and get things set up and you are on your way.

Website / App

You’ve selected your product. The next step will be to create a functioning website that will allow customers to place their order. Creating a working app will also help. The key is to make sure both these things are functional and easy to navigate. Don’t be afraid to sink some money into getting a professionally made website. The better your site or app, the more likely you are to get orders.

Your website or app will be the face of your company, so make sure it is showing off what you are all about. Spending time and money to make this perfect will pay off in the end.

Marketing

You’ve got your product and a working system that your customers can place their orders with. Now the big part. Marketing. This is the part you will want to really dedicate your time to. And it is something that you won’t stop doing the whole time you are running this business.

The first thing is to find out what your target audience is. You need to know what age demographic you are aiming for. What type of people within that age range is going to be buying this product as well? This will greatly influence how you market.

The second thing is to decide how you will be marketing. Do some research into what marketing methods work best for your target demographic. And then see how you can go about using those methods to your advantage. If you are using social media, look into how to create posts that will get more views.
