Three more steps to put order back in your money life

| More

Last week I shared three steps to get money savvy. But turning your money habits from mayhem to managed is more than just budgets and balance sheets. This week I want to share with you three more steps to put order back in your money life.

Of course, if you’re interested in getting your finances on the right track, I’ll be covering the subject in more depth this Saturday at the Trading & Investing Expo. I’d love to see you there so we can work on your money management skills together.

But first, three more steps to get your finances sorted.

1. Ask the dumb questions

Ask dumb questions to make you a smart consumer and investor. Never pretend you know, simply ask and keep asking until you understand. It’s only dumb to pretend you know then end up losing money big time. 

2. Don’t just pay the bills

Do a bit of homework on your bills – go through the invoice and check you are paying for what you ought to. Live by the motto that every dollar you give away through being undisciplined and slack to others makes you poorer and them richer. 

3. Take the time to understand tax

Become a tax expert. Some people say it sounds boring, but how can saving money be boring? How excited are you when you find a $100 bill in the street? Being a tax expert will give you lots of $100 bills! 

Ah, but this is just the beginning, fellow finance friend. Arm yourself with a pad and a pen and come along to my seminar on 6 August. I’d love to see you there.
