This blog post by Joe Mhalic is brilliant. I posted it on my personal Facebook account last week. Whether you’re 12 or 72 the points he makes are valid ones.
I also watched a Tony Robbins session on Financial Freedom. A key point was spending less than you earn and having proper asset allocation. He used several millionaires as examples, people with all their money invested into one company. Their company went under and so did their entire life savings.
Check out those links I think you’ll find at least something of value if you have the time. 🙂
