MONEY MISTAKES

*MONEY* *MISTAKES*
Never borrow money  accrues interest to start a business . Never borrow money to start a business expecting that the business will generate income to pay back the borrowed money plus the interest.


Never spend money you haven't received. Don't even promise someone money based on a promise you have from someone else. If someone tells you: "Monica, come to my office tomorrow at 11am and pick #200K"don't go out to buy items on credit based on this promise, with the hope that you will pay off your creditor when the promised money comes; it may not come as promised and this will leave you in problems with your creditors.


If you want to save, whenever you receive money, donít start spending hoping that youíll save what remains. Normally what remains is zero because as long as money to spend is available, the numerous things you can spend it on are also available. And things to spend on even incite their 'relatives' so that you spend even more than you had planned. When money to spend is not available, we naturally find a way of doing without it. That's why I've learnt to save with an INVESTMENT CLUB. Once I send money there I assume I no longer have it. Before you spend any money, put your savings aside then spend what is left after saving.


When you get an opportunity to meet a very wealthy person, never ask for money. Ask for ideas on how to make money. They may even choose to give you money on their own after seeing that your ideas are great, but let getting money from them never be your objective.

Keeping your seed instead of planting it. Many people stop at saving. It's very, very difficult to save and have all you need to maintain your lifestyle especially after retirement. When you save, your savings are seed; plant it. When you just keep the seed (saving money) some seeds begin to die (eaten by inflation and the like). That's why I recommend that you read about the different types of investment vehicles you can use to grow your savings. I am not necessarily talking about putting the money in a business, because you can easily lose money in  business. I am talking about putting it in an investment.

Never lend someone money you are not willing to lose. By the time you lend someone money, be contented in your heart that should the person fail to pay, you will not die. You should not even lose that person's friendship if they fail to repay the money you lent them. If you feel the person might fail to pay you and this will not affect your relationship with them, then lend them money. If their failure to pay would make you hate this personís entire clan, please advise the person to go to the bank.


Never append your signature to guarantee someone on a financial matter if you are not willing or able to pay the money on their behalf.

Avoid keeping money you don't intend to use in the short-term within easy reach. For instance, donít walk with #100K in your pocket when all you plan to do in a day costs #20K. Like I mentioned earlier there are always expenses available to gobble any money that is within reach, so if you don't want to lose it, put it away in a safe place.


Avoid keeping money in inappropriate places e.g. in socks, under the pillow, in a pit, in the sitting room, in the bra, in a travel bag that you will place somewhere in a bus ... Spending money on an item that you can do without (at least for the time being). These days when I pick money from my pocket or wallet, before paying for something I ask myself: What would happen if I didnít buy this? If I find I can live with the consequences of not having that thing, I smile and walk away.


Paying an amount for something that's not the minimum you can get that same value for. In other words, if you are along east-west road and you pay #5K for a shoe that you can get at #3K at Mile one  market, that's a money mistake except for those who have achieved financial freedom.

Consistently spending all you earn or more than you earn.
