Product Review~Stockpile

I have always been intrigued by the stock market, but have never purchased stocks. The process and all the choices have always seemed overwhelming. I didn't know where to start! I recently had the opportunity to try out Stockpile and my thinking has changed! 

I received a gift card to purchase stock at www.stockpile.com and the process was easy and educational! On the website there are lots of tutorials to help you, including a quick start guide. I learned so much!  Here is the link to learn all about the process: https://learn.stockpile.com/

First I checked out all the different kinds of stocks available. Stockpile has them broken down into categories so you can invest in something that interests you. I picked one of their newer stocks, and was able to get a little over one share. You can buy partial shares, which is nice especially for the more expensive stocks. My stock went down a little at first, but is now climbing again. It is very easy to sign on and check how your investment is doing, including a graph that shows increases and decreases over time. You can also transfer your balance to a different stock or stocks any time. 

I have been very impressed with Stockpile. They made the stock buying process very simple. I'm excited to continue on with my stock and adding to it! I think a gift of stock would be great for so many people, especially young adults and kids. If you are interested in trying out Stockpile, I have a great offer for you! If you use my link to sign up by July 30, you will get $5 of free stock! Here is the link: http://bit.ly/2qWNOCc

Product Review~Ozeri BP01K CardioTech Pro Series Digital Blood Pressure Monitor

I have to take my blood pressure regularly due to a medical condition where it can swing both high and low. I've always had an upper arm monitor, which is big and bulky. So I was excited at the opportunity to review the Ozeri BP01K CardioTech Pro Series Digital Blood Pressure Monitor, as it is taken on the wrist. The way this monitor is configured, it is less bulky and quicker to take the blood pressure. This is what you receive when you order the Ozeri BP01K Monitor:

Included in the box is the monitor, instruction booklet, storage case, and batteries to get you started. The instruction booklet is very informative, with detailed instructions and illustrations. This Ozeri blood pressure monitor is advanced in that it has measure while inflate technology. This means that it automatically inflates to the appropriate level, instead of a set level as other monitors do. This reduces measurement time, especially for people like me who have fluctuations in their blood pressure. The CardioTech monitor stores 180 blood pressure readings with date and time memory for one user, or 90 readings for two different users. This is especially handy when your doctor would like to know what your readings have been since your last visit. It also gives you an average of your most recent three readings, and alerts you to Arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat).

In the picture above, you will see a line broken up into red, yellow, and green. Each reading is classified according to the World Health Organization hypertension guidelines. I like being able to look right over at that line and see if I'm within a normal range. The picture below is of me holding my CardioTech monitor in its case-it is surprisingly compact! I can easily stick it in my purse to use if needed.

I have been completely satisfied with my Ozeri BP01K CardioTech Pro Series Digital Blood Pressure Monitor. With only 3 buttons to push, it is very easy to use yet does so much. My favorite features are the memory storage and how compact it is. Prior to receiving this blood pressure monitor, I did not realize it was possible to take blood pressure readings on your wrist. I find it much more comfortable.  You can purchase your own Ozeri BP01K blood pressure monitor at Amazon. Another great feature is that it comes with a 5 year warranty, so you have nothing to lose.
