I want to share some tips I found on the Australian Simple Savers website, posted by a chap called Stephen Lake. He seems to have lots of wise sayings to share, and these seem particularly apt:
Successful money managers
1 Have good savings habits
2 Start saving early.
3 Spend less than they earn.
4 Are decisive.
5 Have conservative expectations, live modestly.
6 Live for tomorrow, and plan.
7 Are driven and self motivated.
8 Trust their adviser and provide good information.
9 Invest through good and bad times.
10 Are emotionally secure and mature.
11 Learn at every opportunity
12 Keep good records.
