Dreaming of becoming rich
Let us start with this story about a milkman. One day, on the way to sell milk, he started dreaming:

wise with money

wise with money

 

 

 

 

 

and earn a lot of money. With that I will buy a cow

wise with money

 

 

 

 

 

And soon I will have lots of money!!!” What do you think happened after that?

The fool and his money are soon parted, says an old proverb. Once we have earned money we must use it wisely. We can save it in a bank, or use it to start and run a business to earn more money, or invest in companies that will give us regular income. We must know how to live within our means and yet make our dreams come true. Wise people know how to make money without breaking the laws of a country. You too can learn to be wise with money.
