5 Steps to Save Your Money

Your wealth is not dependent on how much you have earned, but how much you have accumulated. But the first step to accumulate our wealth is through saving. In this post, I am going to state five steps I have used to save my money.

1. Never Trust the Salesperson.
Generally, all salespeople have some sort of conflict of interest about our money. The duty of salespeople, of course, is to close a sale or deal as quickly as possible in order to maximize their income. Nevertheless, if salespeople who only get month paycheck without any bonus regarding their sales performance, then most of the time this salesperson will not so hardworking to pursue you to buy their products. In short, we must think twice about the words from salesperson specially who has conflict of interest about our money.

For Beginners: 4 Free Classes That'll Improve Your Finance / Investment Skills

Those who did not focus on finance or business applications in school may find themselves in a really big bind as they grow older and realize how important these two subjects are in maintaining and maximizing their personal income. But if you do not have the time and/or money to return to school to acquire a formal education in these principles there is fortunately another alternative you can take—free online courses. These courses are provided by note-worth sources located in both the U.S. and the UK and although you can't claim credit (and thus can't technically be "certified" in these areas) the old class materials offered by these institutions can in fact help you become better acquainted in these fields. With that said, the classes listed below are perfect for those that do not have the slightest clue about finances or for those looking for a "refresher course."

1. Economics.
It might prove to be extremely difficult to understand the financial markets and investing without having a firm understanding of money-making principles learned in an economics course. Thus this "introductory package" is comprised of 5 different mini-courses—Intro to Economics, Intro to Microeconomics, International Economics, Managerial Economics and Macroeconomics for Managers— in an effort to teach beginners the core principles of economic institutions, including property rights, markets, business organizations, labor unions, money and banking, trade, and taxation.
