Do you want to break free from dumb financial decisions? Use these 3 economic resources for building your financial future. The 3 economic resources that can change your life are property (real estate), Cash in the bank and long term investments. When you are in a job or handling a business, you should try and own property. The owner of McDonalds made a very suave comment about this. He said that “people believed he was in the business of selling burgers, but that was not the case. He was indeed in the business of owning prime properties”. If you look closely McDonald’s stores are always in prime locations and are owned by the company. Now that is some way to secure future. Another important resource one should have is cash in the bank. You can have all the credit cards but cash is the best bet. Cash will work in worst case scenario like a financial crisis. Long-term investment is the economic resource everyone should indulge in. Try and invest 30% of your paycheck and secure your future.
