Wealth Secret for Career Builder Newbies
You will be looking for your wealth secret shortly after you started work. Let’s face it; money is a great motivator for many people.
During the first two years of my career, I did not have any savings at all. I spent every cent I made. While I was never in debt, I remember it wasn’t a very good feeling.
One Sunday morning, I came across an article that spoke about a particular wealth secret. This money saving method has been around for ages but for me at that time, it was like discovering Bill Gates’ wealth secret.

If you have heard about this and have never put it into action. I urge you to read this again and put it into action. I did and it worked for me.

We pay the utility bills, car loans, housing loans, etc. So, whatever that’s left after all the payments we keep for ourselves. If I have to take a guess, it is hardly enough to last the month. After all, we like to eat well, dress well and live the good life!

This method says, each month take out a certain amount of money and deposit it in another account first. This is before you settle the other bills. Hence the name - pay yourself first. And importantly, do not withdraw from that account.
1. Start Small. No Matter How Small.
I have personally done this and the money I saved has come in handy more than once when that extra cash is needed.
There are only two steps to your wealth secret:
