Stocks Basics: Introduction. Turn on the TV news or open a newspaper, surf the internet or listen to the radio, and you will probably come across some information about the stock market: “The Dow Jones closed at record highs”; “The S&P 500 is trading down two-tenths of one percent”; “The stock market is reacting to news from Washington.” The stock market seems to be everywhere in our daily lives, but what exactly is the stock market? And, what are stocks that are bought and sold on this market? What does it mean for you, for your employer, or for your country’s economy when the stock market had “a good day”?

The answers to these questions are not always obvious once we begin to think about what stocks are. For example, you may have heard that owning stock means that you become an owner of that company. But what does that mean? As an "owner" can you rightfully walk into one of its offices and take home a chair or a desk? Speculation, on the other hand, is akin to gambling.

I’m making album #2. 25 music crowdfunding mistakes that'll make you look selfish DIY Musician Blog. [This article was written by guest contributor Ian Anderson of the Launch and Release Blog.] Asking for money sucks. Maybe you fear rejection or maybe you worry that you’ll look desperate, greedy, incompetent or rude. It’s a lot like being a middle schooler trying to hold hands or put an arm around your date while at the movies. Asking for money often raises internal doubts like: * Will I seem greedy? * Will it negatively affect our relationship? * Do they trust me? * Will they understand why or buy into my vision? * Will I look like an a—hole? These are legitimate questions and they can arise in a variety of circumstances in life.But when you are going to run a music crowdfunding project, you cannot afford to have these questions dogging you because self doubt and fear will betray your efforts in some subtle and many not-so-subtle ways.

Thus, it is CRUCIAL that you are WELL PREPARED to ask for money for your crowdfunding project. How to get what you want crib sheet * Say Thank You Ask. Period.

I Bought an Apartment Just to Rent Out on Airbnb. I bought an apartment in 2012 specifically to rent out on Airbnb. I’ve been managing it remotely for the past year. Here's everything I've learned so far, as well as some revenue numbers.

Getting It Going By the Numbers. Growing Your Design Business. So you’ve launched your own creative business, and you’re starting to grow. That’s great! But good growth won’t just happen.

What's new at "Copyright for Collage Artists": Added items to the myths page about parody and the poor man's copyright.

Added a couple of links to the links page. If, like me, you are a collage artist, then copyright is probably a matter of great concern to you. (If it isn't, then it should be!) Many artists seem to feel that thinking about legal niceties, like copyright, will inhibit their creative flow. Though I am not a lawyer, I have done a fair amount of research into copyright law as it applies to collage in the past few years. I hope this page will serve as a starting point for people who are researching copyright on their own.
