If you want to be rich you need maths. If you don’t want to be poor, you also need maths. The poorer you are, the more important it is to maximise your spending power.
Rich or poor, sometimes people panic about their money position – because they don’t know what their true position is – which is because they aren’t keeping track of their money.
After completing Money Stuff, just a couple of hours a month will enable you to keep track of your finances, and so feel secure.
You need maths to manage money. Money Stuff will help you to manage your money better – and avoid being ripped off.
Because bills, bank statements and credit card statements are printed, people assume that they are true. Because internet banking looks so efficient, people often assume that it is accurate.
Have you noticed that any official-looking errors are rarely in your favour? After you’ve been through the Money Stuff course, you will be able to quickly check such documents. What’s the point of making money if you lose it because of other people’s errors? Saving money improves your finances.
ANY OTHER ADVANTAGES?
Have you ever felt too intimidated by a waiter to query the bill? Money Stuff has an inbuilt self-confidence course. You need confidence to query a bill, question your bank or make a complaint. You need tenacity to find the energy to pursue your energy company for putting you on the wrong tariff – or overcharging for energy that you haven’t used.
Money Stuff also contains a simple system to organize your life, so you don’t try to do too much, get in a muddle, get exhausted or panic. Plus there are sections on Budgets and How to Keep Track of Your Money.
Incidentally, money can also affect your relationships. Over 70% of couples who split up, name money problems as their main reason: so for richer, for poorer… you need maths.
