From Red to Black is a book – at first I saw this book and didn’t think it applied to me as I’m not in debt – apart from the home-lone and the bank. But I say Tony Melvin speaking and realised the book was about Controlling Money. I started reading it last night.
It is so what should be taught in school – exactly as it is in the book. Clear simply with diagrams etc. A key thing is that there are particular ways money behaves – as there are known and predictble ways electricity behaves.
So you wouldnt go playing with Electricity without know how it works and how to manage / control it – yet most of us do with money.
As a kid and teenage I did all the jobs around – the babysitting till 2 am the weekend realestate receptionist, the lawn mowing, making cards from shells and selling to little shops, cutting flowers at Christmas and selling the bunches to the Florists, growing vegetables and selling them…and by the time I was about 15 I had saved up alot of money for a person my age about $9000 dollars – alot when I was being paid $20 a night for babysitting and $50 for the day at the realestate office.
But what did I do with it – put it in the back – so its value went down over time and I had no assets going up in value. I did see an add for what was then Estate Mortgage and run them and asked how safe it was to put my money there – the lady said very safe all the properties in the capital cities of Australia would have to go down in value 50% for there not to be money coming back to me. So I signed up and transferred 1/2 of my money from the bank to them (I streak of my underlying conserviative nature made me keep half in the bank). True for many months I was getting cheques for $35-50 (that was like 2 nights baby sitting for nothing). I was loving it – then it changed and all went away. IN recievership and what was worth $1 was now 3 cents.
So I had a learning and I feel it has influenced me since. SO now it’s time to really understand myself – not say I need a financial adviser. But Understand myself. So far from Red to Black by Tony Melvin is perfect.
I know Money is like Energy it moves. I know that the things I want to do in life – including imediately – need money as that is the recognised exchange value.
Money is not evil – and everyone who likes to give it to good causes – get positive things inplace – protect amazone places in Nature – then your need to have money adn be in control of it. Currenlty the $ alloation is way to tilted in the direct of that with is not in harmony. SO if you can do it better – get your self knowing the basic ‘laws’/ways of how money works. Get Red to Black – what ever level of $ income of debt you have.
Lets do it 🙂
