Start Investing

You should have a savings account, but your money is depreciating if that’s your only investment - average savings don’t yield more than inflation.

Real estate, peer-to-peer lending, exchange traded funds (etfs) and stocks are examples of common investments. Cryptocurrencies occurrences are also an alternative although risky.

Know Your Net Worth

Net worth is what would be left if you were to sell everything you own and pay what you owe. If you have a positive net worth, continue working to increase your net worth, but if you have a negative net worth, analyze your budget and plan how to increase it.

Make sure to re-calculate your net worth every month or so to keep up to date with your finances.

Good Debt

Good Debt

Is debt acquired to purchase something that is going to benefit you financially in the future, usually with low interest. That means it's either going to generate income or allow you to make more money in the future.

Examples of good debt:

  • Student Loans: typically have low interest rate and raises future income, if you are headed to a profitable field you enjoy.
  • Mortgages: usually long-term loans with low interest rates and tax deductible interest.
  • Business loans: investment towards something with the goal of increasing your net worth.

Credit Card's Danger

Credit card usage can lead to debt and the debt grows itself while unpaid. However, used responsibly, it's a good way to start building credit. 

Most credit cards also have other benefits, such as rewards points, cash back, or travel points. But if you're incapable of paying off the balance in full every month, then you shouldn’t have it.

Learn to Budget

Create a plan for your money so you know where it's going every month.

A popular and effective way to budget is with the 50/30/20 rule, where 50% of your income goes towards necessities (bills, food, housing, etc.), 20% of your income goes towards savings and 30% you can use freely.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
