Many people who are masters of their own crafts but do not know how to handle money.
Do you oftentimes wonder where your money goes?
Are you not wondering why your credit card bills are increasing despite your compliance on the monthly minimum payment required?
Are your expenses are overly higher than your income?
Are you living in debt?
Debt or borrowing money is not bad all the time. It still depends on purpose…
Example #1, when you borrow money and you will be charged with interest over time, and the money will just be used as downpayment on your purchase of something that will not add income to you, then, it is BAD!
The result, you will have debt on two intities which you need to pay with your current income. You have not gain additional income from your purchase and yet you will have additional expenses.
Example #2, you borrow money with interest at 3% per annum, then you invest it on intities or something (like mutual fund, stock market, real estate) that will earn higher interest over the period of years. That is GOOD!
Why is it good? While paying or once you complete the payment after a year at 3% per annum, you are still receiving income from interest of your investments over the years like 12% per annum.
The greatest wonder of the world is compound interest!
Let us learn how to use the power of compound interest to our advantage and not for our loss instead.

One of the greatest ways to get out of debt trap is to manage your finances. To do it, you must gain knowledge and the right mindset to make it possible. Financial mentors often say..
Poverty is not lack of money. Poverty is lack of financial literacy.
