Now I like that. Money. Who does not! I like to earn it. I like to spend it. Talk about it?
Maybe I should. This prompt came at the right time. A week or so before, I was undergoing some sort of financial crisis. I suppose it was due to my own fault. I had some money to invest. I contacted my financial advisor. Trusting him, I signed up a few papers. I wrote out the cheques, double-checking those but did not realise that he put my money where I had not wanted it to be put in the first place. Now my money is locked for three years and returns are not what I had expected. He put my money in insurance, which is not going to profit me. He is going to earn a hefty commission for it. The result is, I had a few sleepless nights. Now I have accepted the situation after reporting him to his bosses.
One thing I learnt from the whole episode is to be aware of the best of investment instruments. I am taking interest in the share market. This way I am keeping abreast with the latest trends. I am getting to the hang of investments. I am even checking out loan rates for buying a house. I find it very interesting too. I am surprised I did not take much interest before this. As they say better late than never.
Money..lack or plenty of it…both cause problems..in different ways. I would rather have the plenty problem rather than the lack of it. I believe in earning my money and not by buying lotteries. If I need something hard enough, I have to work towards that goal. Just fantasizing or dreaming about it is not going to make it happen. Same goes for money. If you want to earn more, work for it. It always pays. In more ways than one.
Do I have an unknown uncle who is going to leave a hefty sum of money? I wish..:D
