Students, Teachers & Adults-Have Fun Making Money This Summer
By staff columnist, Alexandra Deluise
Making money in the summer time is always good – the days are longer, people seem to be in better moods, and there are some excellent seasonal places to apply for. Before signing yourself up for a seasonal restaurant job, though, try one of these 29 fun ways to make money this summer!
Sell the fruits (or veggies!) of your labor. If you have a garden, you can make extra money by selling produce from your land. You can also get a head start on the market and sell seedlings for people to plant their own gardens. You can charge extra for organic produce and seedlings as well.
Officiate weddings. Become a justice of the peace, and be a part of someone’s happiest memories. Bonus: you might get to stay for the reception, so enjoy that buffet! Get certified online to implement this fun way to make money.
DJ a party. This one might cost some money upfront, unless you work as an independent contractor for an already established DJ company. Since weddings are common during the warmer months, you may be able to land a gig working per diem at a company when they need backup DJs to handle the extra work load.
Easiest way ever to make cash! Get paid when you do stuff online with Swagbucks. My readers love to watch videos, take surveys, play games, and earn free stuff just by hanging out online. And for a limited time you get a free $5.00 sign up bonus!
Work at an amusement park. Bonus: you can probably ride that rollercoaster for free on your lunch break.
The summer is a great time to boost your income. Read these 29 fun ways to make money this summer. What are you waiting for?

If you need a large amount of money, you might be tempted to dip into your retirement fund. Many 401k plans let you borrow money or take an early withdrawal. Both have their pluses and minuses. However, they have one thing in common: If you take out money, you’ll typically have saved less when it’s time for retirement. The consequences of taking a 401k loan or a 401k early withdrawal could cost dearly in retirement. Don’t take this decision lightly or in your later years, you might be forced to change your lifestyle or postpone your exit from work.
If you need money and have a 401k, is it wise to take out a 401k loan or borrow from your 401k? Get the pros and cons of withdrawing from a 401k.

Investors need to keep track of their mutual and exchange traded funds, individual stocks and bonds for many reasons. You want to examine your investment returns, fees, asset allocation, as well as plan for retirement and more. Of course you can do it by hand or on an excel sheet, but with the excellent investment portfolio management software available, why bother? From free, to a one-time payment or on-going fees, there has never been a better selection of investment management software on the market. Both price and features matter and we’ll explore both.

We’ll start out with the free offerings, next the one-time fee platforms and finally those investment and portfolio management tools that charge an ongoing fee. Some of the offerings also include cash management tools, although this article will concentrate on the best investment portfolio management software.
The best investment portfolio management software is one that meets your needs. From free to low-fee, there's a tool here to track your investments.

Help-What Should I do About a Stock Market Crash?
I got an email this morning from one of my freelance investment writing clients to find out if I could help investors worried about their 401k accounts after the Brexit stock market crash. Yesterday, Britain voted to leave the European Union-Brexit. I whipped out an article and decided, that even though I’m somewhat uncomfortable with video, I had to let you know how not to panic.
Investment markets tanked today and left many investors worried and uncertain how to proceed.
Here’s what to do now, after the Brexit stock market crash.

Part 2 of the TradeKing Advisor review delves into their unique RiskAssist ® program, historical performance of various portfolios, additional features and a final pros and cons conclusion.

TradeKing Advisors is a unique offering in the robo-advisory field. Similar to many of its competitors, the company offers passive investment portfolios designed to go along with your individual risk preference. The TradeKing Advisors passive investing option is called the Core Strategy.

Distinct from most other robo-advisors, TradeKing Advisors also offers investors an opportunity for active management with the Momentum Strategy investment portfolio. This choice attempts to take advantage of market moves with the goal of beating the passive investment strategy.

Both of the TradeKing Advisors robo-advisor offerings are worth a look.
