What Money Management Really Means to You

Written by Super User on . Posted in Learning Center

When you think about money, what is your level of concern? Do you manage a set budget? Do you know what your income is? Do you know your expenses and how much you spend on a weekly or monthly basis? Do you have any money in savings? What is your overall level of involvement in your finances and what level of importance does money play in your life?

If you answered “I’m not sure” to any of these, then it is possible that your money mind set isn’t as important as it should be. It’s true that some folks are better at managing money than others, and, no, not everyone is accountant, but you don’t have to have a Bachelor’s in Finance or an MBA to properly manage money. There’s still time to change your mind set, and here are some ways to do it.

4 Crazy Financial Mistakes the Rich Make

Written by Super User on . Posted in Learning Center

Everyone struggles with money at one point or another in life. Regardless of who you are, what you do, or how much you make, it’s bound to happen. And, yes, this even goes for the wealthy. The truth is, even the wealthy make financial mistakes that can significantly cost them.

Here are four areas where the incredibly wealthy can often slip up and end up in a financial downturn.

Taxes. We see all the time celebrities and the incredibly wealthy that owe millions in back taxes. A certain level of wealth can come along with an invincible attitude among many. Many claim that they since they’ve contributed to society on such a powerful and great level they don’t feel they need to pay taxes or some due to the high-powered lifestyle “just forgot”. So from there, we proceed to the next reason…

Success vs. Finances. Many celebrities or the incredibly wealthy will often confuse success in their careers with finances. When income continuously flows into the bank account, and it isn’t properly invested or managed, it can be easy to spend and spend until it is depleted. The wealthy don’t realize that bank accounts do have a bottom, and that bottom is financial ruin.

Retirement. The wealthy will most often lead a successful life and career to only retire, sometimes at a young age, and bask in their millions for the rest of their lives. However, the same concept above applies true here as well. After a wealthy individual retires, if they haven’t properly invested their income through life, they will surely outlive their retirement savings.

Enough is enough. Then, the most obvious reason the wealthy can end up in financial downturn and struggle is spending. Houses, cars, furniture, jewelry, boats, and all the great luxurious items we all dream of, the wealthy has. But at what cost? The cost of everything…including financial stability and comfort.

The moral of the story here? Even if you make millions, or at least six figures a year, you still need some form of a budget to control finances. Investing and saving is just as important as if you made only $40,000 a year. Spending habits, credit habits, and investing behavior are all still as important. The concept between income levels and tax brackets is the same, but obviously the numbers are different. Regardless of whether we are talking about $1,000,000 or $100,000, money still requires proper management.

We all need a little help with money sometimes. Regardless of our age, income, tax bracket, or how much money we have or don’t have, planning and managing finances is part of our daily lives. Some age groups, however, need a little extra help managing money than others. One age group is the elderly.

It’s a common fact that as the elderly age, the ability to manage finances is the first area of life that becomes harder. Some make double payments in the same month while forgetting to pay others, fall behind on investments or accounts, or even lose bills, checks or cash. This situation can spiral out of control very quickly if not managed properly, and can even sink an elderly individual into debt.
