3 Rules for getting the Best Price on Anything

Consumer debt is real because people usually borrow money to buy essentials and non-essentials. People who fund their lifestyle with debt can naturally expect financial troubles down the road. However, many people still end up struggling to get by financially even though they are not spending money on non-essentials.

If you spend more than necessary on the essentials, you'll always have a shortage of funds to cover your expenses. However, many people are not versed in the art of negotiations and they usually end up paying more than necessary. This piece covers three rules that can help you become an astute negotiator to get the best price possible on just about anything.

Know what you are talking about

The first negotiating rule that could help you get the best price on anything you want to buy is to know what you are talking about. You need to understand some important things about the product/service; otherwise, you'll be negotiating blindly. For instance, you need to know how much the competitors of your seller are asking for similar products/services. It could also help your cause to know have an idea of the cost price of the product in order to anticipate a selling price that still gives the seller a fair profit margin. FULL POST

Fun Ideas For Summer Bible Camp

Summer is fast approaching and thousands of churches across the nation will be gearing up for their annual Summer Bible Camps. For kids across the country, summer bible camp is often one of the highlights of the year. It’s important to make sure your camp is as fun and engaging as possible — it will ensure participants get the most out of the experience and come back next year hungry for more! This article will give a brief overview of a few ideas that will help make sure your Summer Bible Camp is as fun as possible.

Divide children up by age and have them choose their favorite Bible story — allow them the creative license to act and illustrate the scene the way they want to. Make sure the script has been organized, roles have been chosen, and the play has been rehearsed. Then have each group act out their play in front of the whole camp. By dividing children into groups you can ensure that every camp attendant plays an active role in their production. FULL POST

Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue

The adrenal glands are located on top of the kidneys and secrete a number of hormones.These include–

  • Cortisol - that helps regulate blood pressure, glucose levels and the metabolism of fats, carbs and proteins.
  • Aldosterone - that regulates electrolyte levels in the body and maintain blood pressure.
  • DHEA and Androgenic Steroids that are used as precursors for sex hormones in both men (androgen) and women (estrogen).
  • Adrenaline and Norepinephrine that helps the body cope with mental and physical stress, improve blood flow, relax muscles and regulate metabolism.

What is Adrenal Fatigue?

Adrenal fatigue occurs when acute or chronic stress or illness causes the adrenal glands to be overworked. Over time, the adrenal glands cannot keep up with the demands of stress on the body, causing a multitude of unpleasant symptoms.Adrenal fatigue is much more than tiredness. The symptoms of adrenal fatigue can affect every system in the body. When you are suffering from adrenal fatigue, changes on the cellular level take place as the body tries to compensate for a decrease in hormones. Unfortunately, this can contribute to thyroid problems as these two hormones producing glands are inextricably linked. As adrenal fatigue continues to get worse, you can develop insulin resistance and begin suffering from Metabolic Syndrome, which can lead to type 2 diabetes, stroke and cardiovascular disease. Hormonal balance is extremely important as one endocrine disorder can lead to other endocrine disorders. Therefore, it is essential that you know the symptoms of adrenal fatigue. Let’s look at the most common symptoms as well as some of the lesser known symptoms associated with adrenal fatigue. FULL POST

Multibillion Dollar Businesses Show Their Support for Christianity

Most budding entrepreneurs have been taught to keep religionout of business if they want to avoid alienating customers. This practicegenerally helps to reach wider audiences and convince more people to use certain products and services. However, some business owners choose to extend what they believe in to all areas of their lives including their work.

Christian businesses can sometimes receive backlash for publicly supporting their faith, and it can be a risky decision to allow religion to mingle with your career. Even thoughmost heed the informal rule of keeping religion out of business, many entrepreneurs continue to be highly successful while showing the world what they believe in.

Multibillion dollar companies like Jet Blue, Forever 21, and Hobby Lobby make plenty of income without having to sacrifice their commitment to their faith. Even Fortune 500 companies, like Marriott International, keep religion in their businessesand let their patrons know that they firmly believe in Christ.Although these businesses may not exclusively offer products or services related to Christianity, they still find small ways to incorporate their faith.
