Are You Playing the Right Game?
In school, we are taught a lot of things like algebra, history, geography, writing, reading, and even physical activities. However, we are taught almost nothing about money! We are taught the very basics, such as counting money and how interest works, but almost nothing on taxes, mortgages, inflation, investing, or saving.
We are left to figure out these things on our own or hopefully have someone who will teach us these things outside of school. Most people who are teaching us were never taught anything about money either!
If you want to have a lot of money you need to learn everything you can about money! School is not going to teach you so how do you learn about it?
You can learn through trial and error like most of us do, but even then, we aren't learning everything because we simply can't try every strategy there is. You must seek outside help to learn how to save, how to invest, how to earn, and how to use your money wisely.
I have done well in life after starting out a little slow. It took me a while to learn how to earn as much as I could, how to save some of that earnings, and how to invest it. Once I learned a few key things about money, things just clicked. I was able to enjoy life and reduce my stress because I understood how money worked and how to grow it.
You may be thinking, great...another "save until you die" program. Nope! I am about spending money and enjoying life as well.
I have a Lamborghini and other exotic cars, I am not one to live frugal forever! You do have to make some sacrifices while in the growth phase, but that doesn't last forever. I was able to thoroughly enjoy my 30s! Even when saving and growing, you do not have to sacrifice everything. You can still be smart with your money and have fun at the same time.
I tell people who follow me you have to know all you can about money. They ask me, "how do I learn?" I did not have a great answer, so I created the answer.
