Tips To Live Within Your Means
Folks who’ve learned to manage money wisely know there’s one absolute, non-negotiable requirement for achieving true financial freedom and it’s nothing more than knowing how to live within your means. It sounds so simple, yet for many, living at, or even below one’s means seems almost impossible. Today, Kingdom Advisors President Rob West has advice to help you spend less than you earn and it all starts in your head. Rob offers Biblical wisdom on how to change your thinking and change your behavior in order to live more within your means. He gives tips such as always making sure you have margin in your finances, asking for discounts and truly tracking your spending. In today’s show we also answer your questions:
• Should I use money from my investments to pay off my student debt?
• I just bought a pizza place with a business partner. We are struggling on deciding how to determine our own salaries. Do you have advice on this subject?
• My son has a 12-year-old car that needs work. How do you determine if it is worth it to fix the car or just replace it?
