“In the house of the wise, there are stores of choice food and oil,
but a foolish man devours all he has.”
$$ Are you saving for retirement? $$
15% percent of your income is what’s recommended.
If not, get to it!
PS: If you don’t know where to start, I highly recommend Chris Hogan’s book
A few months ago, I received a Financial Peace University kit as a wedding present (I’m a newlywed!), and my husband will tell you that I’ve been hooked on Dave Ramsey ever since. I watch his Youtube channel, follow him on social media, listen to his radio show, read his books, and talk about his money principles all the freakin’ time!
When I get excited about something, when I feel strongly about a topic, my passion for it usually comes out in the form of a poem. So here’s my latest:
Don’t ever pay with credit.
Don’t you dare take out a loan
The borrower is slave
You need money? Use your own!
Pay back those pesky debts
(they’re poison to your health)
Save up, invest, and give
And build yourself some wealth
Have to live like no one else
And always act your wage
Then you can live comfortably
When you reach a seasoned age
Sweat and sacrifice
is what’s required of you
So hustle, get it done!
The Lord will help you through
“…the borrower is servant to the lender”
PS: Many of the lines in my poem are taken from Dave Ramsey verbatim. I’m giving credit, so I’m not a plagiarizer!
Good thing too…
