On Top Financially - Mountain 5

5 Realistic Steps To Win Financially

Many people would say there are more than five steps. Others would say just one or two things could get you on top financially. Both could be argued, but after reading many blogs, living out all of the five to some degree, and doing a lot of thinking, I have come up with my five realistic steps to get on top, stay on top, and win financially. To set the ground work I just want to say that by “on top” and “win” I mean not having to worry about money. I am not talking top 1% or 0.1%, I am talking...

Money Tips 1 to 10 Explained

Money Tips 1 to 10 Explained (#MoneyTips) I love tips! If you are American, or one of the many other countries that abuses the idea of tipping, I hate tips. Pay your staff a decent wage and let tipping be a smaller amount or for genuinely exceptional service. The tips I am talking about are succinctly encapsulated ideas that provide insightful information. Or as Google puts it in the third usage as a noun under the second definition: “a small but useful piece of practical advice.” I think there is nothing better that a good short sharp piece of practical advice that...

Real Cost Of Free Money - Your Identity 9

The Real Cost Of “Free” Money – Your Identity

With companies like Uber now valued over $60 billion USD and Airbnb at over $25 billion USD (yes, with a “B” as Dr Evil learnt the hard way) it’s clear that the sharing economy is not going to go away any time soon. As with any new and emerging area that has not yet been fully tested, there can be some pitfalls. Being a financial blog I would like to touch on just one of them that I have now had some direct experience with (thankfully not as a victim). Theft – What Are Your Valuables? It is one thing...

Waste Your Money Roulette Wheel 7

The 3 Best Ways To Waste Your Money

I was out with my partner having a coffee a few days ago, and we decided to get an overpriced vanilla slice and a brownie. This is something I normally don’t do, or at least don’t do without a reason to celebrate. The idea of paying more for something I could make at home just doesn’t sit right with me. It’s a waste. At home, the total would come to about $5 (possibly less), but at the cafe it was $22.50. That’s a steep markup. I made the remark “at least it is a tasty way to waste your money”. One thing led...
