The best piece of advice that I ever received was right before I graduated from college. I was in my professor’s office talking to him when he told me . . .
“Spend your money doing things, not acquiring things.”
We spend our entire lifetime collecting “stuff”. We have rooms and houses full of stuff. Stuff we don’t even use anymore. When we look back at the lives we’ve lived in retirement, it is our experiences that we will remember the most. Spend your money traveling. Spend your money going back to school and getting that degree you always wanted. There will always be enough time to buy things.
What’s the best piece of advice (about personal finance or not) that you have received? I’d love to hear it.
