5 Financial Mistakes to Avoid this Christmas

Published

on

So today is 1st December 2017 which means that
Christmas celebration is just 24 days away from today. It’s the celebration
month no doubt. If not for anything, at least to celebrate all the hard work of
the year and its challenges that we passed through but then, how we go about it
is really important. We have discovered that after December, January of every
next year is usually tagged the hardest month of the year due to the financial
hardship all across the nation. The question it poses is “but why is it always so?” in this article, we will be answering
that question by pointing out mistakes most people make that makes their January
a frustrating and hard one.

From January to this December, you’ve been working yourself
so hard for what? To make ends meet or to see your targets and goals in
business thrive? I guess we all have our different reasons of why we are
working so hard to raise some money. But then what you’ll be doing with it this
Christmas matters a lot. Below are some mistakes to avoid.
1. Saving For only Christmas
celebration:
Are you part of the category that saves money as the year is
coming to end just for Christmas celebration? That will be a very terrible
mistake to make if you ask me. Because Christmas will come and pass and then
what becomes of you and your business or Jobs? It is good to save but not just
for Christmas or what do you think?
2. Spending to Impress Family
and Friends:
It’s somewhat a norm here in Nigeria to show off during the
festive periods but the truth remains that the memory of your spending returns
nothing in profit since it was just a show off. Financial show offs are only
wow expressing and then fades away once the season is over. Spend to make your
family happy but don’t spend to impress anyone in festive seasons because there
is no gain in that. If you have such money to use to impress anyone, why not
think of a business to do with it this Christmas to make some profit?
3. Forgetting January 2018:
Most times, we get carried away by the December grooves and
forget that January of the next year is by the corner waiting for us to come
take charge of it and make the most of it. While you spend this Christmas, have
a financial budget and be sure to include January 2018 in there to checkmate
and guide your spending. 
4. Having zero planning
for financing your 2018:
Are you already planning for the Christmas celebration
without an already laid down plan for financing your 2018 goals? We recommend you
start now because it’s not late yet to draft a master plan for your 2018
finances. 
5. Collecting loans to finance
Christmas Celebration:
Collecting any form of loan for the purpose of financing
this Christmas celebration would be a bad and unwise move to make. Instead of
seeking loans to celebrate Christmas, seek loans to finance your goals,
business targets for the end of year or for 2018. It will be wiser than
collecting loan for celebration as it has more potential to return profit on
investment.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.
