“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” -Thomas Edison Edison was famous for never giving up in his search for the construction of the electric light bulb. Without his tenacity and almost hard-headed way of never giving up, his idea may not have ever come to fruition. What if we […]

“It’s not now much money you make, but how much money you keep, how hard it works for you, and how many generations you keep it for.” -Robert Kiyosaki You could make a million dollars today, but if you squander it tomorrow, it really doesn’t matter a whole lot that you made the million. The […]

“Wealth is not his that has it, but his that enjoys it.” -Benjamin Franklin Let’s take a second to think of “A Christmas Carol’s” Ebenezer Scrooge. He had plenty of money, but he didn’t actually enjoy it, he hoarded it. When he gave to those in need and stopped his major penny-pitching, money-grubbing, hard-headedness, he […]

“The stock market is filled with individuals who know the price of everything, but the value of nothing.” -Philip Fisher You wouldn’t always think so, but price is actually very different from value. Take for example my experience a few days ago at the grocery store; I was making the choice between a deliciously unhealthy […]

“Rich people have small TVs and big libraries, and poor people have small libraries and big TVs.” -Zig Ziglar You’d be surprised at the absolute wealth of knowledge books have to offer. Even those of the outdated, weathered, falling apart from use, non-“techie”, dust bunny collecting variety. I love the TV show South Park, and […]

“Never spend your money before you have it.” -Thomas Jefferson This reminds me of the “don’t count your chickens before they hatch” metaphor. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve calculated a bonus or paycheck before I’ve gotten it and then been disappointed after taxes, or on the rare occasion, pleasantly surprised at the […]

“Every time you borrow money, you’re robbing your future self.” -Nathan W. Morris Credit card borrowing can be a slippery slope. A VERY slippery slope. We’ve all found ourselves on that slope at least once, and it can be very difficult to get a hand hold and work your way off that mountain. But it […]

“The individual investor should act consistently as an investor and not as a speculator.” -Ben Graham You might think that an investor is just somebody who hands you a paycheck and steps away from the picture, but that’s not exactly the case. True, the root word ‘invest’ does mean to “put money to use by […]

“Wealth is the ability to fully experience life.” -Henry David Thoreau Alright, I can’t help but think of Ebenezer Scrooge with this quote. Think about it; he had all the wealth in the world, and yet it brought him absolutely no joy. Thoreau would say that Scrooge was not truly wealthy. And indeed he wasn’t […]

“Try to save something while your salary is small; it’s impossible to save after you begin to earn more.” – Jack Benny Saving when you don’t have money may seem like an impossible task, I’ve been there. And I will admit, I’ve had to dig into my savings account and scrounge up loose change from […]
