Financial planner and radio host, David Holland, asked me to be a guest on his show, Plan Stronger Radio. Of course I said, “Yes!”
I shared the most important piece of financial wisdom I’ve learned in my 25 years as a financial planner. I started the interview with:
I’ve worked with millionaires, multi-millionaires, and ‘thousandaires’ on their way to being millionaires and I would say there is one piece of financial wisdom your listeners could take away that would make a huge difference in their financial futures.
I share that secret and other money saving tips on this show. It’s about 30 minutes (kinda long) so listen to it while you are getting ready in the morning, driving to work or while you are making dinner.
I’d love to hear from you! Share your money savings tips in the comments below.
Think like a squirrel. Oak trees provide plenty of nourishment for the most industrious squirrel.
We’re the same way. If we make the most of the money have, we’ve been given, earned and will earn in the future, we’ll have more than enough to enjoy life.
When I was a teenager, I saw this with my own eyes. My father retired from the U.S. Navy and my parents bought an orange grove in Central California. We designated one tree for the family’s use and the rest of the fruit was sold.
Just from the one tree, we had way too many oranges for one family! In fact, we had so many, they would drop to the ground and rot. My brother and I used to play “orange baseball” with the rotten ones.
We took turns pitching them to each other and hit them as hard as we could with a wooden bat. The goal was to spray the sibling with orange pieces. We’d come in the house covered in orange juice and orange sections.
In other words, we had plenty of oranges to spare. We were “orange rich.”
