A Minimalist Approach to Personal Finance

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
☝️🚀


There’s a basic formula to win at personal finance. And it’s this… Make more money than you spend. In practice it’s not that easy. In the real world our money slips through our fingers. No matter how much we make our bank account seems to have its own agenda.

In this video I breakdown common myths, pressures & misconceptions about money and how to manage it.

Hey everybody! I'm making a course on habit change (it's my first one and it's going to be awesome). There will be lots of videos, silly jokes, & most of all actionable steps to make any habit stick.

This isn’t minimalism is it? Isn’t it just sensible?

Very fortunate situation you were presented with.
Not many people have the luxury of moving back in after college to pay off their student loans. Many people are on their own at 22, with 100k in student loan debt. If you are this latter group, its alright. Keep your head up, and fight through it one day at a time.

1. Drop the stuck up competitive " friends"
2. Set real goals and do one step at a time
3. Just go do it and don't tell anyone until it's done

Why is American education so expensive??? Everytime I hear about an American and their student debt I get anxiety.

“We buy things we don’t need, to impress people we don’t like with money we don’t have”

My father was born in 1926 and grew up during the Great Depression. He told me as a child, whenever he earned enough money from his paper route he would go to the bank and trade his change in for a dollar bill. When he got home from the bank he would borrow his mother’s clothing iron and carefully iron the dollar and then put it in a safe place to keep.

We were lower middle class growing up and I never had name brand anything; I didn’t even know what name brands were. My parents were savers, with 5 kids to feed and we wasted nothing. I remember my sisters making their own prom dresses with our mother. I remember riding with my father to the dairy farm to pick up milk with seven 1-gallon jugs. I remember planting our gardens in the spring.

My parents understood the value of a dollar and bequeathed that knowledge to me, for which I’m eternally grateful.

I’m 53 years old now and have lived below my means for my entire life. I’m proud to say I now have a net worth of nearly 1million dollars and expect to live comfortably in retirement. Not bad for a lower middle class kid starting with nothing.

Make as much money as possible. Spend as little as possible. Invest a lot of what is left. Repeat as often as possible, for as long as possible.

My personal rule #1 is don't confuse what you want with what you truly need. It's amazing how much stuff never makes the cut when you do this.

It’s okay to treat yourself every once and while: but for the most part, when you want something, ask yourself... Do I need this? Then sit on the idea for a few days. Most of the time you will forget whatever it is you wanted. If you don’t, then buy it.

My rule is that “if you can’t afford to pay for it with cash you can’t afford it”. I do own a credit card, but it has a zero balance. I use it to pay bills only and pay it off at the end of the month. A great credit score is a good thing to have.

A really good video, I think ladies show watch these kinds of videos more. Material possessions cant guarantee you financial stability instead it takes from what you have, investing or learning a skill can ensure you a life of financial independence.

It's even harder if you're a Filipino. You are expected to support your siblings until they finish school, support your parents through out their lives, help your nieces and everyone in your family until you're exhausted.
