Sign the confidentiality agreement to bid on this listing at Flippa

I was recently was looking at a websites at Flippa, and I was prompted to “sign the confidentiality agreement to bid on this listing” before I could even view the website for sale. What a fucking joke this is! Nothing like this would ever hold up in court, it is so silly. People have  fake usernames, something like this would be so difficult to enforce, it just wouldn’t be worth the time or the money.

How to Settle a Simple Auto Accident Claim Without A Lawyer

You’ve been in a car accident that wasn’t your fault and you have minor injuries. This article will tell you how to settle your claim without a lawyer.

Things you’ll need:

  • A Police Report
  • Medical Bills
  • Basic Phone Skills

1 This article is based on my personal experience. I was rear-ended by another driver and he was cited at fault in the accident. I experienced back and neck pains as a result of the accident. This is a fairly common automobile accident. The police officer investigating the accident will provide you with a summary of the ticket which states if he found anyone at fault. Keep this document – it is the ticket to the settlement of your personal injury claim.

2 Contact a personal injury clinic, typically a chiropractor’ s office and ask them if they will provide you treatment on a lien basis. This means that they agree to wait until the insurance company pays the claim. Start treatment immediately. Insurance companies are skeptical if a person seeks treatment after they speak to a lawyer or it is more than a few days after the accident.

3 Check your own automobile insurance policy to see if your policy provides “Med Pay”. Med pay is short for medical payments and is typically paid directly to the provider or to the insured if they come out of pocket for medical treatment. Your chiropractor can use the med pay provision of your car insurance. This will make you money because the insurance company of the at fault driver will pay your claim and you will not have to reimburse the chiropractor for cost of treatment.

4 The insurance company for the driver that hit you will call you within a few days of the accident. Tell them that you are receiving medical treatment and let them know how long it is expected to take. Refuse to give a recorded statement unless you feel very confident that you can accurately recount what happened. You are not required to provide anyone with a recorded statement and they are frequently used later when the insurance company wants to legally fight a claim. Just politely decline – if pressed say, I’m considering hiring a lawyer.

5 Complete your medical treatment. Go to each and every scheduled treatment. Do not skip any appointment. Get a certified completion of treatment. Get a copy of all of your medical records.

6 Total your medical expenses and document any lost income. Write a simple letter to the insurance adjuster of the other driver with copies of your police report, medical records, photographs, and any other evidence you have supporting a settlement. Multiply your actual damages by three for your final demand. They will respond with their offer and you can accept it if you feel it is good.

You’ve been in a car accident that wasn’t your fault and you have minor injuries. This article will tell you how to settle your claim without a lawyer.

Tips & Warnings

If you used med pay from your own insurance, you get to keep the entire settlement.

Most lawyers will take a contingent fee of 33% of your settlement. If you followed the tips in this how to, you’ll come out better off without an attorney. If you receive medical treatment on a lien basis, you have to repay the medical provider from your settlement. If the insurance company refuses to settle with you, your only real option then is to file a lawsuit so it is better to be nice with the insurance adjuster. They’re just doing their job, after all.

Scott R. Asher shares how to become an Idea person

At one time or another, you’ve probably met an “idea person.” Ideas flow freely to them. This article will tell you how to become an idea person.

1 To become an idea person you will need to clear some time from your schedule to contemplate. Find yourself a quiet space that is comfortable. Turn off your phone and ensure that you will not be interrupted. Tell yourself that you would like to experience ideas and that you are an idea person.

2 Ideas come from a place of mental relaxation. You cannot fully experience the power of ideas if you are thinking about any problems that you may have. A good way to begin relaxing is to concentrate your attention on feelings within your body. Imagine yourself in a bath of warm liquid and it flows over you, covering you in warmth and relaxation. Give it a color and feel it going from the tips of your toes to the top of your head.

3 When you are physically and emotionally relaxed, you can start to pay attention to thoughts streaming into your consciousness. At this point you can start to play with thoughts. Don’t try to direct them, but allow them to come and go without any attachment to the particular thoughts. If something comes to you that you like or feel strong about, focus your attention on that thought but let it turn, twist or whatever it wants to do. You’re not trying to control your thoughts, you’re basically treating your mind as a receiver for thoughts that are just floating around in the universe. Have fun with them and don’t take it too seriously.

4 After some play time with your thoughts, you can start creating the direction of thoughts into an idea. Ideas are basically a series of coherent thoughts about a particular subject. It might be how to make something better, how to advertise a product, how to make a product or whatever. It might pop into your head all at once or you might come to it after several different thoughts. The important thing to do is to pay attention to your thoughts and you will get ideas.

5 Ideas by themselves are practically worthless. If I had a nickel for every time I heard someone say about a successful idea, “I had that idea first,” I’d be a rich guy. Wait, I am a rich guy. If you do nothing with ideas, nothing happens so I recommend you take a note pad or computer into your work space to write your ideas down.

6 Learning to relax and play with thoughts is like exercising – you will get better with practice. If you really want to become an idea person, practice creating Instructions

Things you’ll need:

  • A quiet, comfortable work space and relaxation.
  • ideas every day and they will flow to you like a gushing fire hose.

Tips & Warnings

  • Add relaxation and stress relief to your life and ideas will come.
  • Don’t panic if they don’t come right away. Panic, anxiety, worry and stress are idea killers.
