- Don’t Be a Consumerist: keep your expenses as low as possible without sacrificing the quality of life. Spend money on things that yield lasting benefits.
- Have An Emergency Fund: this gives you freedom and peace of mind to deal with issues without having to upset your long-term investments.
- Invest Defensively:investing in individual stocks is a dangerous business and it can take your peace of mind. Index funds let you invest in a whole group of companies, bonds, etc. without the time and risk involved in individual stocks.
- Diversify Income:relying on a single source of income is a dangerous strategy. Multiple sources will make you more financially resilient and give you the resources to acquire assets and invest.
