How to Get a Fast Payday Advance Loan

Individuals that belong to the low income communities are those that are in need of immediate cash. With so many people in need to get access to money, lending institutions are also present and scrambling to offer you the best products and services. The most prominent product that is being offered in the market is payday loans. These are debts that are short term in nature. They will last usually from around 15 to 45 days. If the loan gets more than the stated time frame, then most likely it will result to be a long term debt.

Direct deposit loans are both available in retail and online. The traditional market will often require you to apply for the loans at the store. This means taking the time to go to the lender to apply for the loans. It will also mean doing it during regular hours as most of them will be closed during nights. Hence, if you are at work, you would have to use your lunch breaks to apply for the debt instrument. In addition to this, there are some retail lenders who will ask for requirements such as proof of income. Plus, some will conduct credit investigations that will check your credit records.

For those that want to avoid these circumstances, the best way to get a fast payday advance loan is through the Internet. A typical applicant can apply for the loan at the comfort and convenience of his home. The long hours of waiting in line and filling up the forms can be done in the comfort of your house. Furthermore, you can do this while you are at your office during the day. All you have to do is fill out the forms, and they can get your approval in just a few hours. In fact, there are some lenders who assure of fast service and approval in one hour.

Online lenders will also give you the fast access to the funds with no more than a few minutes after approval. They will directly deposit the funds to the bank account with no need for you to go to the bank to cash a check. Thus, this system will save you both time and effort. In order to get a fast payday loan for people with no credit, you need to check the Internet for the lenders. Take the time to search for those lenders who will offer you the best rates and the fastest service possible. A little time spent on reviewing the businesses will often do wonders for your effort to look for these fast cash lenders.

To get faster approvals for the application, there are three basic things you need to have. These elements are you must have a steady source of income or job, you must have a bank account, and you must be of legal age. When these requirements are met, then most likely you will get approval. Some lenders will ask for your social security number only as a way to verify your identity.…

Student Loan Consolidation

If you are like the average college student, you more than likely took out some type of student loan to pay for some or all of your college education. Whether you graduated or not is a different story. However, regardless of your matriculation status, you are still responsible for paying those loans back once you are no longer actively pursing a qualifying higher education. Depending on the total amount of loans you took out and what type of student loan, federal or private, you may be burdened with making multiple payments in a single month to multiple lenders. These loans might also be a further burden because of the often high and sometimes variable interest rates they carry. If any of this applies to you, read on and learn why loan consolidation just might be right for your personal situation.

Student loan consolidation is the process of refinancing of all your student loans into a single loan with a single loan provider. If you have federal student loans, you can consolidate them with the federal government by taking advantage of their direct loan consolidation process. If you have private loans, you will have to find a lender who participates in private loan consolidating and apply for consolidation with them. Over the last couple of years, the government has passed legislation that has made it less appealing for companies to participate in the loan consolidation business so the list of loan consolidators has since shortened.

Despite the shortened list, the advantages of student loan consolidation have not changed. If you are wondering if student loan consolidation is for you, here are some of the symptoms or issues people face when they decide to consolidate their student loans. Ask yourself:

Are you having trouble meeting your monthly payments?
Have you exhausted your deferments or forbearance options?
Are you struggling to avoid defaulting on your loans or have you already defaulted?
Do you want the convenience of a single payment?
Is the variable rate on your loans making it difficult for you to keep up?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, consolidation just might be the answer you are looking for. Some of the benefits of consolidation include:

You can combine one or more loans with a single lender with one monthly payment
Flexible payment options that change with your circumstances
No minimums and no maximums
Additional deferment and forbearance options
Lower monthly payments and a lower fixed interest rate
The overall consolidation process is relative easy. Once you have identified the consolidation source, you will then go through the process of inputting all of your loan information into their system including contact information for your lenders. This information can easily be obtained by reviewing your most recent loan statement. The loan consolidator will verify your loan information and determine whether or not they will approve you for consolidation. Once you are approved, they will pay off all of your student loans and create a new loan agreement between you and them. You will also be required to sign a new promissory note with your new lender (or old) which will outline the payment terms and certify your intent to pay it back.

Congratulations, you have consolidated your student loans!…

The Franchise

In terms of investing, there is no shortage of vehicles which to invest in. Some require your active involvement and some require very little of your time. Some require a large initial investment and some require very little investment. Finally, some have high rates of return and some have very low rates of return. The proper mixture is a personal decision and often involves you assessing your age, income level, risk tolerance, and overall financial goals.

My goal isn’t to answer those questions for you but instead to introduce (or not) an investment vehicle that is all of the above in one bread basket. That investment vehicle is franchising!

So what is franchising?

Franchising, at its most basic level, is when an investor pays a franchisor (franchise owner) for the right to use that franchisor’s trademark and business systems in order to turn a profit. Some of your most popular franchises include McDonalds, Subway, ServiceMaster Clean and Dunkin’ Donuts. If you have never heard of the franchising concept, then you may incorrectly think McDonalds Corporation owns every single McDonalds you see throughout your city. In actuality, they own a percentage of these locations and the rest are owned by individuals who pay them for the right to own and operate under the McDonalds name and image and to sell McDonalds products.

Who can own a franchise?

One of the benefits of franchising is just about anyone can own a franchise. I’m not saying anyone can own any franchise they want, but I am saying anyone has the ability to own any franchise they want if they meet the established criteria of the individual franchisor. In the very beginning stages of pursuing the idea of owning a franchise, you need to determine whether or not franchising is actually for you. Some of the questions you might ask yourself might include:

Are you willing to make the time and financial commitment owning a franchise requires?
What type of franchise do you want to own?
Do you have the financial capital to invest in a franchise or can you obtain it?
Are you willing to take the financial risks involved and can you handle those risks?
*This list is by no means exhaustive but you should at least answer these few questions before you decide to move forward*

Once you have answered these questions and decided investing in a franchise is in fact what you want to do, the next step is to contact the franchise to obtain necessary information and documentation.

What are the benefits of buying a franchise?

The benefits of franchising are plenty and can really be broken down into two categories. What are the benefits personally and what are the benefits professionally. From a personal standpoint, you become your own boss and the master of your own fate. I won’t go into detail here because the personal benefits are pretty self explanatory. From a professional standpoint, buying a franchise provides a better safety net from business failure as opposed to starting a business from scratch. A snap shot of the benefits include:

You get a proven business system and training on how to use it
The franchisor often does all the market research and gives you a picture of your local competition and gives you ideas on how to differentiate yourself
You benefit from the buying power of the franchisor through vendor discounts for materials, supplies, services and leasing terms
Less risk of business failure and automatic brand awareness
The likelihood and speed at which you will expand to open two and three locations increases dramatically
So what are some of the costs involved in buying a franchise?

If any of these sounds too good to be true, I’m here to tell you it’s not! However, none of the benefits are free and there are some upfront costs you will incur. Most franchisors require an upfront fee that can range from $2,000-$100,000 and up. Some may even require you to pay an annual royalty fee ranging from 2-10%. There may also be costs associated with securing land or a building in which to operate the business in and all associated costs. Although, some franchisors do pay for leasehold improvements as part of the initial service package.

You may also be required to purchase equipment via a long-term lease which can be beneficial to you in the future since banks will consider the equipment as collateral. Other initial expenses may include opening inventory, working capital, outdoor signs, and advertising fees.

The details, benefits and requirements of each franchise are very different. As a resource, I would suggest doing your research through each individual franchise company as well as websites like Entrepreneur.com and Franchise.com. Also, check with your local city and state government’s economic development office for tax incentives, seed money programs, free business training and other business resources to assist you in the planning and executing stages. The government and local community based organizations highly support business creation in their communities and have an endless amount of resources to assist you.…
