What Are Your Money Rules?

Yves SchoofBusiness

Do you have any particular rules or thoughts around money and finances? It might be a powerful motto that you live by.

Here is a list of money rules other people live by: Your Favourite Money Rules.


Personally I believe in the following money rules:


  • Understand the power of compounding and start investing early


  • Understand that basically every life decision you make has a financial (opportunity) cost – make sure you are comfortable with your trade-offs


  • Protect yourself from the unexpected – it is not worth taking huge risks


  • Be disciplined and rational in your financial decision-making, don’t get too emotional


  • Diversify and don’t put all your eggs in one basket when it comes to investments and wealth creation strategies


  • Moderate your debt and make sure you can pay it off quickly


What are your thoughts? Did you want to add any to this list yourself?

Author | Specialist Adviser for Medical Specialists and Surgeons at Affluence Private Wealth
I specialise in managing and coordinating the financial affairs of medical professionals and have been recognised as one of the best financial planners in Australia. I am a Certified Financial Planner and member of the Financial Planning Association of Australia.

As I understand your time is extremely valuable and scarce, I am able to offer flexible meetings times, including outside business hours and during the weekend. I can even come and meet you somewhere convenient, or talk via videoconference on Skype.

My first consultation is free. I allocate up to 90 minutes to discuss your personal circumstances and to establish how I may best assist you. Where you already have an existing adviser, I would be happy to offer a second opinion. I always quote a fixed dollar fee before we start working together.

Please contact me on yves@affluenceprivate.com.au or call me direct on 0432 885 295. You can follow me on Twitter @YvesSchoof or connect with me on LinkedIn to receive new articles.
