I’m sure you too received lots of sms and emails from friends & loved ones wishing you a prosperous 2010.
I wish I could sms back and ask for a recipe to make 2010 truly prosperous for me. I now know that no one gets rich by mistake (unless you win a lotto!). To become rich, you need a plan to make you rich and you must also work your plan. So what plan do you have to become prosperous in 2010 and beyond?
Here are a few easy tips
- Rent out a room or two in your home to 2010 soccer fans
- Enroll on a course to improve your skills and increase your chances of getting a promotion or even a better job
- Always wanted to start your own business? How about starting part – time to test the market?
- Hide or simply cut your store cards and credit cards. You’ll be surprised to see how much money you save by not using your cards
- Do you want to buy a home? Remember it’s still a good time to buy; NO home, NO wealth
- Are you already a home owner? How about increasing your monthly bond repayments when you receive your salary increase? You will pay off your home sooner
- Are you a parent? Will you be able to send your kids to university when they finish matric? How about getting Fundisa for your kids? I just received R600 bonus in December last year for having saved
R2 400 (i.e. R200 per month).
