Fast money is hardly ever money that lasts.
People always want the shortcuts. How can I get rich quick?
Think about the things in your life that have real value. If you want to become wealthy because you think it will solve all your problems, you are probably wrong. Money equals choice. There is nothing wrong with using money to do good things for your family and the people you love and care about in your life.
If you are reading this blog for the first time, chances are you are starting to think about how you can find and apply principles that will help you and your family save more money. This is an excellent place to start. Our blog today is not going to tell you a secret. We will tell you that the first secret is out in the open.
That secret is “begin.”
And remember that the more you sacrifice now and trick yourself into pushing more of your income to savings for later, the more you will truly build wealth.
Spend some time thinking about how you want to build your financial life. Start building your own plan from the ground up. You can do it.
Make a difference in the lives of your own kids. Take a stand and recognize that the corporate world is geared against us in the middle class. However, they need us as much as we want some of the things they tempt us with.
So, today we start with this word: START. You can do it.
GIVE YOUR KIDS A CHANCE YOU NEVER HAD
In this country we don’t do enough to teach our children about money, managing money, saving regularly (and automatically), compound interest and steady investing for a long-term future. As a parent, we are always concerned that they get a good education and go to a good college so they can make a lot of money or have a valued career path. The truth is that we could do our children the biggest favor and one of the best things by sharing with them sound saving and investing principles.
You can join our free Facebook group (or have your children do it, too) by searching in the Facebook bar on your “wall” for “Live The Lifestyle Your Family Deserves.” Click on “become a fan.” It’s free and it ties our free blogs into that group.
If you want to give your children the same information we are giving ours, you can purchase the only thing we sell on any of our blogs or groups. It’s called “How To Survive Any Financial Crisis” and you can get it for only $4.95 at http://www.middleclassmoney.com.
Thank you for reading our blog and good luck!
