One of the simplest things that many of us fail to do when it comes to money is to protect it. Believe it or not, we are at war when it comes to our money! The marketing campaigns of companies are downright fantastic and if we aren't careful, we will hand over every dollar we have, and even dollars we don't have by going into debt to buy their stuff. Have you ever gone to target for one item, but walked out with a cart full? LOL! See, I knew you'd understand with that example!
We don’t look at money as something that needs to be protected, but you need to start! That's not only advice from me, that's advice from millionaires and people who are having success with money!
Money is more than just something that you spend frivolously and save on occasion. Money is the key to future opportunity. The less money you have, the less opportunities. The more money you have the more opportunities.
And the list goes on!
A mentor of mine, and a guy who has taught me a lot says it this way, "Your income is your greatest wealth building tool!" - Dave Ramsey
Most people are living paycheck to paycheck. Their income is being used to make other people rich. Here's how it goes for most people. You work hard, 40, 50, 60 or more hours per week, you get paid, and immediately all that money is gone because of stuff, debt, and payments. Sounds eerily familiar, right? If you want to change your financial course you have to take back your income and protect it to help you and your future!
So let’s talk about how you can start protecting your money to secure your future.
I hope you find these tips to be a good starting point. Many may see this as being too frugal, but those are usually the people who don't have any money in the bank.
