Tips For Financial Success

December 31st, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

The Not Made of Money blog has some excellent tips to help with your financial success in 2009, and one of them caught my eye as an excellent addition to my post on your emergency fund and why you need one:

Be Prepared The worst financial disasters don’t come from the surprises life throws at you. They come from your being unprepared for those surprises.

This tip has a Dave Ramsey like quality to it:  an explanation that, when you hear it, makes you immediately feel both enlightened and foolish for not realizing it yourself at the same time.

So much of financial independence is common sense, so why do so many of us not use it?
