Ramit Sethi – Personal Finance Basics

By | August 12, 2013

This is an excellent video that talks about the philosophy of personal finance. Before we talk about mechanics of personal finance, we should first talk about the philosophy of personal finance. He uncovers why the reason why many books with mundane tips to get rich doesn’t work. Mostly, because it’s boring, and it creates a boring lifestyle. It’s silly to think that every wealthy person pockets every cent that comes out of their paycheck. I don’t think we have to save every penny we make to build wealth.

He talks about spending money in the right places, because it can create positive energy. I agree with many points from this presenter of the video and I also have very similar views.

Surprisingly, to become rich, it is very important to live a normal and healthy life. Hence, my motto: LIVE, LEARN and EARN. I believe it’s important to learn as much as you can and enjoy life to the fullest and that will help you maximize your earning power.
