4 Ideas to Start a Digital Business Without the High Cost

The world is currently going through tough times and no one is immune. However, like other pandemics, COVID-19 will see its end. But before then, a lot is going to change, including the way we do business.

As the world struggles to eliminate or put the disease under control, how do you create a business online without the high cost?

I have put together four ideas for you to examine. This post is not meant to elaborate on these ideas and give you step-by-step instructions. I just want you to know that there is something you can do

The Story of 300K/mo Earning Amazon Seller

William Rivera

Atlanta, Georgia, Sept. 04, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The general reaction that a common everyday person has when they first hear about any idea related to making money online is to question the validity of it.

They are half intimidated, half sceptical, and half fidgety with the entire idea that earning money could actually be easier than we give it credit for. 

The Story of William Rivera:

The person that we are talking about today knew nothing about making money online, while working a typical part time job at a local gym. William Rivera was skeptical to the core, just like your regular person, about the idea of making money outside a regular job, and for the longest time was extremely reluctant and opposed to the idea that it could ever work. He lived with the logic that it sounded too

NEW YORK, NY – JULY 12: Hundreds of people gather outside immigration services building in Foley Square Manhattan for a “Lights for Liberty” protest against immigrant detention camps and the imminent Immigration raids by ICE on July 12, 2019. New York.

On Friday, U.S. District Judge Amit P. Mehta temporarily barred the federal government from applying its visa ban to diversity visa lottery winners and their relatives that would prevent them from receiving their entry papers before the September 30 deadline.

Mehta ordered the Trump administration to undertake “good faith efforts” to “expeditiously process and adjudicate” those applications and renewals by the deadline and the end of the government’s fiscal year.

The 2014 Obama appointee otherwise upheld

Is A Master’s In Finance Worth It?

The Master in Finance (MiF) is the second most popular graduate business degree after the MBA, accounting for nearly a quarter of all business school applications.

While many of the best masters in finance programs can be found at European business schools—with top programs at HEC Paris, ESCP Business School, and Essec Business School—MiF programs are increasingly found in Asia and the United States. 

Like other business school degrees, a Master in Finance doesn’t come cheap. European programs like the Master of International Finance at HEC Paris come in at around $35k in tuition, while US MiF programs like that at MIT Sloan cost in excess of $87k. 

So, is a Master’s in Finance degree worth it?

Why Mastercard Stock May Be Falling Friday

What happened

For the second day in a row, shares of Mastercard (NYSE: MA) are following the stock market lower. After losing nearly 5% in Thursday’s tech stock rout, Mastercard dropped another 5% in early trading Friday.

It’s since recovered a bit — and is down only 2.7% as of 1 p.m. EDT — but is there any reason Mastercard should be falling in the first place?

So what

Maybe there is. Stock markets initially began falling as investors, spooked by the rising prices of tech stocks, started taking chips off the table to preserve their paper profits.

Now, Mastercard isn’t itself a tech stock, of course. It’s a financial. It also hasn’t enjoyed the kind of run-up that tech stocks have enjoyed over this past year. Actually, Mastercard’s 18%, 52-week gain isn’t that far out of the norm for the S&P 500 as a whole,
