Personal Financial Planning: Take this Quiz to Find Out How Savvy You Are

Stop anyone on the streets and they'll share their goals for financial prosperity and freedom with you. What is not common, however, is the will to take risks and embark on making these dreams come true.

Fear is the common denominator of dreams that remain just that, a dream! It's that fear that keeps one going to the same job year after year for the same financial reward or token salary, which they could double if they only dared to start even a small business of their own. It's this fear that separates the successful from the dreamers.

For others, it's not fear or lack of confidence or opportunity but just plain laziness. Some people have enough or can raise enough, set themselves up and set up a business, but they are in a comfort zone of guaranteed wages, never mind if those wages are low, have been the same over the years and are likely to remain so. They never look for a different or other opportunities.

Take an honest look at yourself, using the various vital signs of a good financial success: are you moving forward, backwards, standing still or running on the spot as far as your finances are concerned?

Take this online personal finance quiz to find out.

  1. If you have a passion to assist others with reaching their goals and dreams. Then you must keep in mind that you deserve to reach yours too. You can attain your goals, and then assist others to attain theirs. You can make a difference in your life, and then assist others to make a difference in their.

How farmers can double their bean yield production

"As Jack slept, the beans germinated in the soil, and by morning a big beanstalk grew in their place. When Jack saw the great beanstalk, he immediately decided to climb..." This is a classic scenario of 'Jack and the Beanstalk' fairy tale. The same is true for Kenya's bean variety that climbs and spreads on sticks producing double the yield of local varieties.

Due to subdivision of land in Kenya, farmers are not able to produce enough beans to feed the 38.6 million people living in Kenya.This is mainly due to shrinking land sizes. This is the reason why high yielding varieties of beans that only need a small area to grow has been developed. These new varieties of beans require support with stakes (sticks) to climb on when they are growing.

Herbal Plants used for Alternative Medicine with no side effect

In a sad note, most indigenous informants keep herbal knowledge, especially the actual preparation methods, strictly secret. Luckily, an aged medicine man from Gatundu in Central Kenya, whose great knowledge of medicinal plants facilitated the write-up of this article.
