Today I was conflicted between posting late and not posting at all…i think the lack of cake is really makig a big impact on my life. My mom keeps telling me how much cake (i meant weight I have lost). She also proceeded to tell me about One chocolate cake she didn’t like…at least I know where I got that habit from.
On to the main thing I want to discuss today- money! How do you deal with money in terms of planning? If N1 million or even N100 million were to hit your account today, do you have a plan for it? This came up in a discussion yesterday and for me I know two things I would do with N100 million if i got it right now. I would buy a flat in Ikoyi (not those crazy dollar ones – but like a Lekki Gardens one), and I would plunge another N40 million into starting up the school. I would essentially have N30 million with no plan for it per say.
I ask the question above because according to some people close to me- one of my past times is giving out almost anything i lay my hands on. When you have pre-arranged plans for money- it becomes extremely difficult to dash out or loan out money to folks who are unlikely to pay you back anyway. I know when I was more disciplined in the past- i made note of how much I spent even on taxis because I knew each month I had several mortgages to pay and investments to make. It’s how I was able to invest because lump sums rarely ever just show up.
So I ask you, do you have an investment plan, or you are really just waiting for the money to show up before you even think of what to do with it?
I wish you a fabulous weekend- mine will be interesting for starters.
Still up for grabs is A Million Dollar Gift
