Making Money

Money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish, but it will not replace you as the driver. You only have to drive !!

Everyone wants to have an endless supply of money to buy whatever they want without constraint. Or at least that’s what you’ve been told. Fast cars, nice clothes, big houses, and the list goes on, Says Hirav Shah, Popular Business Coach and Strategist.

But whats the right way to build your wealth? Smart, wealthy people have figured out the secret to getting rich and staying rich, and the secret is all in how you manage your money.

What Is “Being Rich” ?

First, let’s define rich. To you, is being rich having the latest and greatest gadgets? Or is it about having enough money to know that regardless of what life throws at you, you will always have financial security?

Wealthy people have a stash of cash they’ve invested that provides an excellent return. They know that living off the money their investments are making for them (the investment income), the better off they’ll be because they will always have their investments working for them without using their principal (the original investment). The key to wealth is knowing how you manage your money and get your money working,Quotes Shah.

And while talking about money here, it’s impossible not to mention about “Money Mayweather “. Money was a nickname Floyd gave himself, and the creation of his “The Money Team”, showed Floyd had a strong sense of how to build his popularity in the urban market.
