Mobility has greatly influenced our lives; whether it comes to work or play. The developments made in the yesteryears suits the demands of the centuries, and developers keep surprising the users by innovating and facilitating in the finest manner. Whether it comes to shopping or finding a delicious meal in the area nearby, wouldn’t you pick up your device before making any other move?

This is how essential smartphones have become for users in today’s times. Proceeding at the speed of light, mobile technology at times overwhelms people because of the ever changing trends and innovations. Let’s take look at the most recent trends in mobile app development.

1. Quicker Development
This is one of the most obvious trends. In fact, developers these days have to face a lot of challenges to keep pace with the ever rising demands of the users. In this competition, companies attempt to launch as soon as they can. This might also have an impact on the quality at times, since the development time has lessened considerably over the recent years. The gap between ideation and launch is insignificant in today’s time. Rapid launch aids has been the most popular trend of mobile app development!

2. Secure Apps
Hacking had been a concern of users since a very long time. Fortunately for the customers, the recent mobile app development requires the developers to go through a minimum security test that benefits the users a great deal. Security is the most important thing in the visual world because many of us have to expose the most personal details on the web. Naturally, trust is essential for this to work well for all the parties involved. Security has become a dire need in the recent mobile app development trends.

3. Wearable Technology
Although many of the users are still not too familiar with the idea, this trend will influence a lot of development taking place in the near future. We need to applause the Apple Watch here. Since its launch, wearable technology has become the talk of the town. Although a lot of wearable technology has already been developed in the past, most of it was focused around health and fitness. The recent times showed us a path very enlightening. The possibility of the latest wearable technology can significantly change the way we work and communicate. Naturally, this will have a lot of influence on our performance and productivity.

4. Cloud Technology
Cloud technology has played a significant role in the times that have recently passed, and will influence the development a great deal in the future as well. Because of the inventions of the latest smart phones and wearable technology, developers need to work more seriously on integrating all of this for a smooth user experience. Through the cloud approach, developers will be able to produce apps that can be used across multiple devices conveniently.

Business Financial Planning

Businesses often find financial planning a hassle. At the same time, it is critical to plan your finances well through the entire business cycle, be it before commencing, or after folding up (if you decide to merge or sell etc.) In truth, creating a financial strategy isn’t as tough as it seems to be. There are some steps which need to be kept in mind while planning your finances. Some of these steps are as listed below:

Establishing and defining the financial planner – client relationship
Gathering client data, goal – setting and expectation – defining
Analysis and evaluation of the existing financial status
Development and presentation of recommendations / alternatives

It is important to note here that some of these steps will determine and influence the other ones. At the same time, some of these steps need to be carried out simultaneously. To understand these steps better let’s look into how each of these steps work.

Establishing and defining the financial planner – client relationship

In this step the financial planner, explains his / her services to the client. This means that they explain or document their responsibilities towards the project. Further in the same step he / she also chalks out the responsibilities of the client. The payment and terms and conditions are also negotiated in the same step and the time frames are negotiated as well. Decision making processes, SOPs, Specific Points of contact etc. are also decided at the same time.

Gathering client data, goal – setting and expectation – defining

In this stage the data related to the financial state of the client’s business is collected. The personal and financial goals are defined. A thorough SWOT analysis will also give an insight into the risk taking capacity and the estimated productivity of the business. This stage is actually where planner gathers all necessary information before advising the client anything.

Analysis and evaluation of the existing financial status

In this step, the client information is assessed and analyzed. This gives a clear idea about the current status and also helps in deciding what to do in order to achieve client’s business goals. Further, on the basis of the requested services, this stage may include the assessment of liabilities, assets, cash flow, tax strategy, investments, current insurance covers etc.

Trolling Lake Michigan

There is no doubt that the Great Lakes are incredible fisheries. Thousands of people take to those lakes every year for a variety of fish. Lake Michigan is no different. There are many ways to catch fish on Lake Michigan. One of the best ways, though, is to always hire a guide.

There are many guides on the lake who specialise in different types of fishing. Look for a reputable guide who’s been working on the lake for a while and who can provide you with some references. Fishing Lake Michigan for the first time can be a daunting task. It can also be dangerous, if you have never fished big water before. Even the most seasoned of anglers pick up tips and trick from experienced guides. They understand which fishing lures are catching fish and where and how to use the most effectively.

Trolling is one way to catch fish on Lake Michigan. This requires knowing the depths at which the fish are holding and also the speed at which the fishing lures will work the best. The speed and depth of the fish will depend on the recent weather, the time of year, and the water temperature at various depths, among other factors. The fishing lures that worked on Lake Michigan in the spring may not be the same ones that will put fish in the boat in the fall.

Business Financial Analysis

Planning and Control are the two most important ingredients to a Successful Business. A Business Plan takes most of the guess work out of Business Strategy and Control through solid Financial analysis. Financial Data provides a way to gauge where you are in your Strategic Plan, telling you where changes in your Plan are necessary. Because of this, Financial Data Analysis and Management are vitally important to running a successful business.

It is extremely important to have a suitable Accounting System installed throughout your business so data acquisition is easy. You cannot manage your Business for Profitability without a good Accounting System. My CPA has a bookkeeper who comes out to the business to help install the Accounting System and show us how to work it. All of this is done with the guidance of the CPA but at a fraction of the cost. A good Bookkeeper is invaluable in helping capture Financial Data. Having an established working Accounting System in place will minimize the fees a CPA charges to analyze your tax liability and prepare your tax returns.

An Accounting System is typically built around the following key Financial Management tools:

– Income Statement (Profit & Loss Statement)
– Cash Flow Statement
– Balance Sheet
– Budget
– Breakeven Analysis

By having a Financial Management system in place, you can easily identify early warning signs or spot particularly profitable areas. Not having a system in place to analyze and organize Financial Data makes it impossible to effectively manage, grow and control a business. It makes it impossible to gauge the success (or lack there-of) of your Planning and Strategy. Moreover, used incorrectly, inaccurate Financial Data can be disastrous for a company’s livelihood.

An Accounting and Financial Management System is only as useful as it is used systematically throughout an entire business. It is extremely important to implement the system into the very fabric of the business and be used systematically. The Accounting System is a reflection of the health, or lack thereof, of a business and from which business decisions are made. Make sure to set it up right, train your people on it and most importantly, use it!

Two principal objectives of any business are to be Profitable and have Cash Flow to pay obligations. The Income Statement and Cash Flow Statement figure prominently in this area. The Income Statement represents how well a Company is operating, and the Cash Flow Statement shows how well a business is managing its Cash. Profit or Loss on one side and Liquidity on the other.

Need to Succeed As an Internet Millionaire

A Computer. (If you do not have one you can borrow from a friend. Don’t forget I said just 1 day so you will not be disturbing that friend continuously). It is better to have your own personal computer because of the necessary changes you’ll want to be making to your website and you would not want to be imposing on your friend or colleague all the time. But if you don’t have the funds to buy a personal computer, you can be using the cyber café near your home, and in no time you’ll have enough money to buy yourself a personal computer.

Internet Connection. (Most offices have free Wi-Fi and if your office doesn’t have Wi-Fi you can go to a cyber café or better still, get a modem. The internet aspect of this process will take at most 2 hours to complete so you won’t spend all day in the café).

A Website. This might be tricky for some people who don’t have a clue as to how to create a website. It’s pretty easy. I’ll tell you how later on. But if you don’t want the hassle of having to learn how to create a website from scratch you can use a free site that hosts websites for free until you have the cash to buy website. Uploading your site is also very easy to do. I will tell you all this later on.

A Product To Sell. If you are a customer-shy person, that means you don’t like meeting your customers, you should consider digital products but if you don’t mind meeting your customers face to face you can use tangible products like shoes, bags etc. and you can also use the digital product too. That’s a double market for you because you don’t mind meeting your customers.

Business of Financial Planning

We have learned from the economic crisis of 2008, to take care of where we invest or what we do with our money. It also taught us that in times of doubt, consult your advisor. The economic downfall in 2008 also opened opportunities for expert financial planners and newbies who wants to help people and business maximize their resources.

If you are wondering why you or your business needs financial planning, we have enlisted the perks here.

Financial planning enables businesses or individuals to allocate the right amount to the right area that needs improvement or more investment in a timely manner. This minimizes risk-taking and bad investments. Efficient financial planning would then eventually lead to better revenue and effective cost management.

Financial planning presents the costs and gains of a company or individual in numbers, giving them a clearer view of what they will be investing in. This makes it easier for decision makers to go or stop a contract or project.

A financial plan is prepared annually. This financial forecast explains how much the business or individual should expect and when to expect it. This not only shows how long the wait is going to be, but also the quantity of its profitability. Every month, a financial plan is also done to compare the annual plan prepared earlier to see if the target is being met, exceeded or otherwise. This warns the business owner or individual of possibilities and posed threats in the investment, and if it’s time to give up or not yet. Although it is not always correct, as there are so many things that could affect the business’ financial status, financial planning and management makes it easier to see what is and what can be.

While some people or business owners would want or need a financial planner as they can do this on their own, there are some who would need a planner’s help to get the load off their backs. Either way, when looking for a financial planning company to handle this hefty job, here are the things you have to consider.

License – find a licensed or certified financial planner, which signifies their abilities and credibility. Do not just jump on the first firm that comes your way in a desperate move to find one.

Pay structure – there are two major pay structures your planner may be a part of: fee-based and commission-based. Nothing of the two is better than the other; it is really up to the company or person what he/she prefers. There are also planner who, like free-lancers, can be paid by the hour or when you only need them

Financial Health of Your Business

A business must enter all its financial transactions in its books of account. It helps the accountants in tracking the incoming and the outgoing flow of cash through the business. Nowadays, the cloud based accounting systems maintain and process the books of account.

The corporate environment of every country is bound by certain statutory obligations. ACRA (Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority) of Singapore governs the corporate sector in Singapore. This agency has the duty to ensure all industries, irrespective of their size or niche, comply with the amended set of statutory requirements. Updated books of account, filing of financial statements, and paying taxes in time are the essential factors of these obligations.

The act of recording each financial transaction of the business and then, periodically checking the books of account has a far-reaching meaning to the business owners. The accounting software reduces the amount of manual work involved in the task. Each time, it processes the business data accurately and unfailingly. The software takes only a few seconds to process the data. The results obtained denote the financial health of the business.

On-the-Go Access

A cloud based accounting system saves and processes the business’ financial data on the cloud servers. It transmits the results to the business owner’s device, which can be an internet capable mobile or tablet. The software can also transmit the reports to the laptops, net books, and desktop computer.

The accounting software systems generate financial documents like cash flow, balance sheets, and profit and loss accounts for the inspection of the owners. They get a detailed info about the working and the financial standing of their businesses. The software also updates them about the financial position of their businesses with respect to their suppliers, customers, and creditors of their businesses.

The accounting software allows the owners to know about the fluctuations in their bank balances. It allows the owners to keep a firm control on their credit and debit situation. It ensures that they do have a chance to take appropriate actions before the commencement of a financial disaster or a broken commitment.
