Life Insurance for Life: Getting to Know Whole Life Insurance

Whole life insurance is one of the most popular life insurance options in America for a reason. Unlike term life insurance, whole life insurance never expires, your rates won’t ever rise, and whole life has the added benefit of acting as a minor investment account for the policy holder. The same reasons that make whole life insurance so attractive, however, also make it vitally important that you know your life insurance needs, understand the specifics of your whole life policy, and find a reputable provider before you sign any dotted lines. If you’re considering a whole life policy to protect your loved ones, here are a few things to consider about whole life as you begin shopping around.

Whole Life Insurance Premiums Are Set for Life

While you’ll pay more early on in monthly premiums for a whole life policy as opposed to a term life policy, your rates are locked for life and your policy will never expire. Why is that a big deal? Over the long term, a whole life policy can potentially save you thousands of dollars in premiums. According to business and finance expert Daniel Workman, the average annual premiums for a 10 year term life insurance policy increase by more than 30% between the ages of 30 and 40, by close to 100% between the ages of 40 and 50, and by nearly 100% again between the ages of 50 and 55. If you’re not excited about a 250% rate increase in your life insurance premiums over 25 years, then whole life is worth looking into.

Whole Life Insurance Is for Life and Death

Whole life providers take a portion of your premiums each month and invest it. When that investment turns a profit, you get a cut. Because whole life policies have this investment and return component (known as the “cash value” aspect of your policy), you can take out loans against your cash value balance to help supplement college expenses for the kids, or an addition to the house to accommodate a growing family, to cite a few examples.

Make Sure Whole Life Is Right for You

Whole life insurance policies aren’t for everybody. While whole life certainly provides long term benefits (especially for those able to invest in larger policies), higher initial premiums, extra management fees and commissions, and fluctuating investment climates can often add up to short term losses. That said, make sure you’ve clearly identified your goals, know the terms of your policy, and are being realistic about your expectations, before you commit to a whole life model to meet your life insurance needs.

Last But Not Least: Find the Right Provider

Finally, choosing a quality provider with a positive long term outlook is also important with whole life insurance. Remember, the goal is to carry this policy for the duration of your life, so it’s important that your insurance provider is going to be there for you every step along the way, be next week, next year, or 50 years down the road. By soliciting quotes from an online quote service like NetQuote.com, you’ll not only be able to compare rates and coverages in searching out the best value, but you’ll also get the opportunity to compare the histories, longevity, and prospective futures of the companies you’re considering doing business with.

Cad dictionary definition #cad, #online #dictionary, #thesaurus, #dictionary, #cad #definition, #definition #of #cad, #define

#

The use of computers and software in design work. CAD is used extensively in architecture, aeronautical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, genetic engineering, mechanical engineering, facilities planning, and interior design.

(C omputer-A ided D esign) Using high-speed desktop computers to design products. Either a mouse or graphics tablet is used for the physical drawing, and a scanner may be attached for additional input. The output of a CAD system is often electronically transmitted to a computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) system or 3D printer, which builds the objects (see CAD/CAM and 3D printing ). Generic or Specialized CAD software is available for generic design or specialized uses, such as architectural, electrical and mechanical. The software may also be highly specialized for creating products such as printed circuits and integrated circuits. Solid and Parametric Modeling More complex forms of CAD are solid modeling and parametric modeling, which allows objects to be created with real-world characteristics. For example, in solid modeling, objects can be sectioned (sliced down the middle) to reveal their internal structure. In parametric modeling, objects have meaningful relationships with each other (a door must be on a wall, not the floor; holes cannot be drilled too close to the edge, etc.). See wireframe modeling. surface modeling. solid modeling. parametric modeling. graphics and CAE.

Two or Three Dimensions

While 2D CAD programs work for some applications, they are essentially the computer counterpart to hand-drawn objects. In contrast, 3D CAD enables objects to be drawn with sides, top and bottom so they can be manipulated as a whole and viewed from any angle.

From Rivets to Trees

Some CAD software suites can take the finished object and render it as a real-world entity. This building was designed in MicroStation Modeler and rendered in MicroStation MasterPiece from Bentley Systems. (Image courtesy of Bentley Systems, Inc. and Cooper Carry.)

51 Quotes to Inspire Success in Your Life and Business #global #business

#business quotes

#

What is success? There are many definitions, but there’s one thing all the greats agree on: Success only comes by persevering despite failure.

Here are 50 quotes to inspire you to succeed in the face of failures, setbacks, and barriers.

1.“Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.”

— Winston S. Churchill

2.“It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.”

3.“The road to success and the road to failure are almost exactly the same.”

4.“Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.”

— Henry David Thoreau

5.“Opportunities don’t happen. You create them.”

6.“Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.”

–John D. Rockefeller

7.“I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.”

8.“There are two types of people who will tell you that you cannot make a difference in this world: those who are afraid to try and those who are afraid you will succeed.”

9.“Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do. Don’t wish it were easier; wish you were better.”

10.“Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value.”

11.“Never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.”

12.“Stop chasing the money and start chasing the passion.”

13.“Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”

14.“I owe my success to having listened respectfully to the very best advice, and then going away and doing the exact opposite.”

15.“Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.”

— Thomas J. Watson

16.“If you are not willing to risk the usual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.”

17.“The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do.”

18.“Do one thing every day that scares you.”

19.“All progress takes place outside the comfort zone.”

— Michael John Bobak

20.“People who succeed have momentum. The more they succeed, the more they want to succeed, and the more they find a way to succeed. Similarly, when someone is failing, the tendency is to get on a downward spiral that can even become a self-fulfilling prophecy.”

21.“Don’t let the fear of losing be greater than the excitement of winning.”

22.“If you really look closely, most overnight successes took a long time.”

23.“The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won’t. It’s whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere.”

24.“The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.”

— Franklin D. Roosevelt

25.“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.”

26.“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”

27.“The successful warrior is the average man, with laser-like focus.”

28.“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”

29.“Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit.”

30.“If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.”

31.“I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure–It is: Try to please everybody.”

— Herbert Bayard Swope

32.“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”

33.“Success isn’t just about what you accomplish in your life; it’s about what you inspire others to do.”

34.“Fall seven times and stand up eight.”

40.“In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can.”

41.“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”

42.“Don’t be distracted by criticism. Remember–the only taste of success some people get is to take a bite out of you.”

43.“The secret of success is to do the common thing uncommonly well.”

— John D. Rockefeller Jr.

44.“You know you are on the road to success if you would do your job, and not be paid for it.”

45.“There is a powerful driving force inside every human being that, once unleashed, can make any vision, dream, or desire a reality.”

46.“The secret to success is to know something nobody else knows.”

48.“I never dreamed about success, I worked for it.”

49.“I never did anything worth doing by accident, nor did any of my inventions come indirectly through accident, except the phonograph. No, when I have fully decided that a result is worth getting, I go about it, and make trial after trial, until it comes.”

50.“The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.”

51.“Keep on going, and the chances are that you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I never heard of anyone ever stumbling on something sitting down.”

— Charles F. Kettering

Townhome insurance quotes and information #townhome, #townhome #insurance, #townhome #insurance #quote, #townhome #insurance #quotes,

Townhome Insurance Policy

Townhome living is a great way for people to be homeowners who don’t want the hassle of lots of upkeep and maintenance. Most townhomes are located in communities where the homeowner’s association (HOA) takes care of many if not all the exterior maintenance and upkeep on the property. Townhome insurance is very similar to standard home insurance, but there are a few important differences.

The first and largest difference between townhome insurance and home insurance is in the amount of dwelling insurance that is required. Dwelling insurance is insurance for the actual structure that the homeowner is living in. Townhome insurance is unique, however, because most townhomes share at least one, if not two, walls with a neighboring owner. This lowers the amount of insurance required, especially if the home is bordered on both sides. In any shared wall situation, the owner of the property is still responsible for all studs in, and any interior ceiling, floor, or fixture that is damaged. In some cases, the Home Owners Association will even replace the roof of a townhome damaged by hail or any other covered peril. Each owner needs to confirm this with the HOA before assuming it is covered, because it varies from company to company.

Another minor difference between a townhome and home insurance policy is in the “Other Structures” coverage. Most townhome insurance quotes don’t come with any Other Structures coverage. This coverage is meant to cover any outbuildings on an owner’s property like the fence, pool, mailbox, detached garage, etc. The reason that this coverage isn’t often included is because many townhome properties have a home owners association that will cover the other structures. For townhome owners that will be responsible for outbuildings and fences, it is crucial that Other Structures coverage is attained so the insurance will extend to these buildings.

The remaining standard coverage sections that are included in home insurance are also included in townhome insurance. Personal Property, Loss of Use, Liability, and Medical Payments to Others are all included in the typical townhome insurance quote, and most owners can expect to have this coverage in their policies.

The most common townhome insurance policy is called the HO6 policy. The HO6 insurance policy was specifically designed for condo and townhome owners where there were shared walls and home owners associations that cover many exterior perils. Most townhome insurance quotes will come in the form of an HO6 insurance policy. This policy is a named perils policy, and will cover the home and personal property for sixteen perils that are listed in the policy. Some companies will insure townhomes with an HO3 home insurance policy. The HO3 insurance policy is much more extensive and will protect the home for nearly all possible perils that can damage the home. The HO3 is definitely better coverage, but many townhome owners may not be able to find this type of policy for the home.

Whether an owner is protecting the home through an HO6 or an HO3 insurance policy, it is important that the owner knows the differences between the policies, knows that he or she is well covered, and knows that are many townhome insurance quotes and companies out there to choose from.
