I had a word with one of my friend and he was trusting some one for his Financial Future. This is not his case alone. Most of us do the same. Is it worth doing it? Ever thought about it?
If we don’t learn to manage our own hard earned money, someone will manage it rather honestly mismanage it. Some of these people may be ill-intentioned, like unscrupulous commission-based financial planners who keep calling us for some financial products every now and then. Others may be well-meaning, but may not know what they’re doing, like our parents, If they are not up to date with the financial instruments they can’t guide us in the proper direction and I don’t blame them. I prefer guys like us to take care of our financial future. We should guide them as well since the times have changed and their principles might hold good but definitely not their financial instruments.
Instead of all these things, it is better we start realizing our needs and start equipping ourselves with what we have to learn. In order to take charge try to learn something new everyday regarding personal finance. Once you equip yourself with Personal Finance knowledge try to take care of the situation and ensure that you don’t let anyone else control your Financial Future. It is your money and it should work hard for you.
Your first step should be, learning how to make money work for you and you should not work hard for money.
