The description of wealthymatters.com is “For Whom Wealth Matters”, which is all about the practical wisdom of money. In this modern world money has become vital to survive, but how many of us have practical wisdom for handling money? The About section of this blog is as follows:
“Hello! Welcome to my blog “wealthymatters”. I define wealth as having the means to afford a lifestyle of one’s personal choice without having to actively work at a job to get the cash to do so.Defined as such,I find wealth and wealth building fascinating .I like the idea of having the freedom to not have to be at someone else’s beck and call, to not have to work on someone else’s schedule and to not have to subsume my priorities to someone else’s priorities.
Given my fascination , I spend a lot of time reading up , thinking about and working at wealth building.In the course of these activities I come across a lot of fascinating titbits , insights and nifty tools I hope to record in “wealthymatters”. I hope my scrapbooking helps you on your way to becoming wealthy.”
