When it comes to business portraits, for instance, updating your photo when you make a long term change or with your annual reports is a wise idea, but when you do update be sure to take your time and think about a goal for your image because a quality portrait can say a lot to potential clients!
Be committed in achieving success. You have to be committed no matter what. If you are not committed, you will never achieve the things you want in your life. Many people just hope to success, they dream to success and they wish to success. They will never commit to success and that is why they fail to achieve great success in their life. Just like will you spend time reading Annual Reports for Companies the moment you have to? Or are you going to watch television instead of doing something that will lead you to your success?
Online bill paying is another great way to save yourself time and money!

You can put a photo at the top of the letter as part of the letterhead. That’s often effective. But you must leave photos out of the rest of the letter.

If you have $1000 to work with, here’s a great way to establish a credit history. First, take $1000 to a bank, and open a 6 month CD account. Then, apply for an installment loan for $1000, using the CD as collateral. Now, here’s what you do. Take the $1000 loan, and open another 6 month CD at another bank. Get another loan for $1000 from the second bank. Do all the steps again at one more bank.
This is the main reason your direct mail appeal letters need to look like letters and not like pages taken from a newsletter, brochure or company annnual report.
Other people think that if the credit card company reports the bill as a “charge off” and deletes it from their books that it relieves them of their responsibility to pay.
Be a co-signer to someone with a good credit. You should be sure that he or she does not have excessive debt in his file. If you are able find someone that trusts you to do this, they can request for you to be a co-signer on their card, thereby allowing you to share their positive credit history built overtime as it will show up on your credit file.
Show your interest. I used to print out the company annual report and discuss sections with the interviewers (when looking for work) – this blew them away.
