Get your finances into shape
Let’s face it, we live in a world that requires money. In today’s day and age, though, it is very easy for it to become the master, as opposed to the tool that it should be. Just look at these astounding facts: - The average college student has over $20,000 in consumer debt by the time he graduates (that doesn’t include student loans).
- There are 178.6 million credit cards in America, each having an average balance of $16,000 with an average interest of 12.36 percent compounding daily.
- In the 2007-2008 bubble, millions of people filed bankruptcy and others lost up to half the value of their homes.
- Today the average house has just 29 percent equity. Compare this to the 1950s, which had 80 percent equity.
- Business Week announced that America has $3.2 TRILLION in consumer debt (not including mortgages!).
With these kinds of statistics it’s no wonder that the lack of money is one of the top reasons for both suicide and divorce. However, if you choose, you can become money’s master and let it work for you. According to Forbes magazine, the 400 richest people said their number one strategy for wealth was to get out of debt early.
During an address to college students, Warren Buffet made some suggestions for success: - Avoid all credit card debt. - Invest in yourself because you are your most valuable asset.
