The Plus Student Loan In The United States


Here we make a note of the Plus Student loan funding system, and what it can do for parents and students. 

This is a quick description of what a Plus Student Loan is all about. This is the most popular way to get funding for your education.

Administered by the college or university your child attends, the OSL PLUS Loan is one of the most competitive PLUS Loan products currently offered in the U.S.

PLUS loans are not need-based; however, the parent just needs to meet minimal credit requirements to qualify. Unlike other Federal student loans, repayment of the parent PLUS loan is the responsibility of the parent, not the student.

The Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students, or PLUS loan, is a federally-backed loan that enables parents to borrow funds to cover your child's (or children's) cost of attending college, less any financial aid.

A PLUS Loan is more flexible, and less expensive than Conventional Consumer Loans.

Many parents opt to take out a parents PLUS Loan because it offers many advantages over other forms of consumer loans such as a home equity loan or line of credit, credit cards, bank loans, or other private loans.

Dissolving My Ego

Our ego is something we don't need.

Today I will begin dissolving my ego. I will think of how others are affected my thoughts, words, and actions.

I am not my job, my status, or my things. I am a born energy force of love, and I must remind myself of my true calling.

I am here to help others, love others, and love and help myself.
To love me is to love the source of all loving creation.

When I think of others in loving and patient ways, I'm showing respect for the loving spirit that I truly am.   

This week I shall love myself and others, and dissolve my ego.


We hope this weekly affirmation will give you a moment of peace, and a reminder of your connection to loving spirit.

You ARE a piece of divine energy, and a miracle.

Becoming a Travel Agent in The New Century

HowtobecomehomebasedtravelagentIn this exciting new century there is a new way to become a travel agent. The days of the expensive travel agent courses are becoming ancient history, and working in a mall is a non-happener all together.

Classic (old-school) Travel Agent Opportunity

There are still travel agent trainings, that cost an arm & a leg, and leave you with the ability to book travel, but that’s where it ends. My wife took this old-school training and it cost her over $10,000 and she had to pay for room & board for the month-long course.  She ended up with a basic privilege to book travel. 

With these kind of old-school credentials, you are missing out on something BIG, and I’ll get to why further in this article.

Internet Travel Agent Opportunity

Then along came the Internet, and soon there was hundreds of web-sites offering cheap eBooks, online courses claiming that you would get the information, and training you needed to succeed as a travel agent (home-based, or overhead based).

None of these cheap deals actually deliver on their promise, and this avenue usually leaves you out of pocket for some of your hard-earned money. How much can vary – from as low as $5.95, and as high as $2500 USD. OUCH! You want to stay clear of these scams for sure.  

Then Came Programs Like YTB

YTB is a smoother, and slicker Internet based company that promises to provide you with the resources to become a home-based travel agent. The problem is that there are better offers out there now. These new-world networks cost less money, set you up faster, pay higher commissions, and provide for residual income as well. The travel agents make high commissions, and they have lucrative down-lines that grow wealth perpetually.  

The New-World Travel Agent System

The new-world travel agent systems use a Network that provides for online travel booking so that the agent can work from anywhere there is an Internet connection, and they pay much higher commissions. The best example to date is a new travel company known as Pro Travel Network.

This new breed of travel agent gets all the travel benefits the old-school agents get, but they have more freedom because of the Internet based model, and they (more importantly), have downlines. This is where it gets very lucrative.

The best article I was able to find that explains Pro Travel Network in detail is here. There are links to a forum, where you can watch some of these Pro Travel Network agents planning trips, signing up new recruits, and talking about their commissions. Pretty cool to watch.  

The Zulit article also breaks down the different ways new members can be agents. They can either sign up like the old-school agent with the ability to only book travel, or they can sign up for the PTN multi-level-marketing side.
This is not unlike the old Amway system, but it’s based on travel booking, and this is why it’s such a lucrative system. Signing up people for travel deals, and a residual income is an easy sell.

At this writing, I have not become a home-based travel agent, but my sister did a year ago. She joing PTN, and her income is now double what she made as a book-keeper. She has been traveling all over the world, and I’m getting quite envious with the schedule she has.

As I always suggest to my conservative-minded readers, don’t jump into this program without reading allot about it.

I would start reading here if you are researching how to become a travel agent.

Have a super-day, gotta run..

All Health Insurance Agencies Would Have You Believe


Below is what all health insurance agencies would have you believe. They’re glorified middle-men of the health insurance industry, and if what they all said was true, then the ditty below would ring true.

It doesn’t.

Health insurance premiums are filed with, and regulated by your State’s Department of Insurance. Whether you buy from a local health insurance agency, or directly from the health insurance company, you'll pay the same monthly premium for the same plan.

This means that you get the advantages and convenience of purchasing your health insurance plan through pretty well any health insurance company and know that you're getting the best available deal.

By combining the knowledge of a neighborhood agent with the broad experience and comprehensive understanding of a leading online health insurance source, most health insurance companies are able to offer their customers the following benefits.

Best Prices. Health insurance rates are filed with and regulated by your state's Department of Insurance. Whether you buy from your local agent, or directly from the health insurance company, you'll pay the same monthly premium for the same plan.

Large Selection. Because most health insurance agencies offer plans from multiple insurance companies in your area, they can offer a broad selection of health insurance companies and plans, which allows you find the plan that best fits your needs. In fact, most health insurance companies can provide a quality online source of health insurance for individuals, families and small businesses.

Excellent Customer Care. The licensed health insurance agents and experienced representatives that staff most customer care centers will help you make the most of your money with professional, unbiased advice.

Fast Processing. Most health insurance companies offer the fastest way to apply for health insurance because many of the plans offered on their web sites can be submitted and signed electronically, eliminating the need to manually print and mail applications. This reduces average processing time significantly.

Pro Travel Network - Become a Travel Agent

Found another Zulit post of interest. All of us who make a full time living online, eventually end up traveling allot. As long as we have high-speed Internet wherever we go, it’s all good. The only problem is the expense.

Well Terry found a great way to write-off all his travel expenses in a legit fashion. He signed up with Pro Travel Network, and became a travel agent. Done. All travel expenses written off, a new MLM income stream ta boot.

Here is the post with links:

So I’ve been looking for a way to legitimately write-off all our travel. Don’t want the tax-man knocking on my door you know. I was looking into becoming a travel agent a year ago, but gave up on it, as getting the course, and such, was a pain and expense I didn’t want.

As luck has it, I met one of the go-getters of Pro Travel Network a couple of weeks ago. (Anil) So I signed up in order to promote the travel network, and also become a travel agent.

The beautiful thing is the MLM side of PTN. Right up my alley as an Internet marketer. I’m doing a review of Pro Travel Network today, so I’ll be sure to post a link to the review on this post later.
