Educational thread: 6 Bad Financial Habits you should Avoid at all costs! Read and share:
1. Biting off more than you chew: While loans, credit cards ease your financial burden at the moment, piling them up is never a great idea. If this is your case, investing will be a distant dream.
2. Bad credit score: Most Indians are unaware of how credit scores are calculated. Even simple things like not paying bills, late payments can reflect adversely on your credit score. This can backfire in your future, if you apply for loans.

How Can You Get Access to Capital?

Where 20 years ago, 70-90% of all initial public offerings were raising $50M or less, today only 30-40% of companies go public at that stage.
A major reason being, there is a lack of developed exchanges that are creating new listings of that size. This major change in our capital markets has left many companies without a transparent, safe marketplace to get liquidity and expand.
In our next webinar, we will be discussing this and what solution is coming for this very problem.
Dream Exchange

Dream Exchange is creating the first black-owned national stock exchange as well as the first ever venture stock exchange.

A #Thread 🧵

@dmuthuk @SahilBloom @FundamentalGems @FinKrypt @stockskibaat @stocks_in @nifty_baba @FinancialAdda @trdessai @join2manish

Showing your kids the 'Value of #Money' won't happen overnight. It requires numerous little steps. Remember, that they will most likely chaos up en route, yet mistakes are the means by which they learn. #SaarthiZarooriHai @iRadhikaGupta @NileshShah68 @AmitMTrivedi @monikahalan Image
Lack of #FinancialLiteracy of children & not teaching by parents the 'Value of #Money' can be a reason behind such cases being reported. We wonder how many more such cases would be unreported. Build a strong #Financial foundation today. We at @MMFA_IN are here to guide & mentor. बच्चों की वित्तीय वित्तीयता...
बच्चों की वित्तीय वित्तीयता में कमी और माता-पिता द्वारा ''पैसों की अहमियत'' न पढ़ाया जाना ऐसे मामलों के पीछे एक कारण हो सकता है। हमें आश्चर्य है कि इस तरह के कितने और मामले अप्राप्त होंगे। आज एक मजबूत वित्तीय नींव बनाएँ। हम @MMFA_IN में मार्गदर्शन और संरक्षक के लिए यहां हैं।

1/x In an effort to understand the #OilPriceWar I dug a bit. Here is what I found & another resource thread for any students that are not in school & would like to learn a bit on #markets. #ResourceThread

A. It. began with the #Corvid19 = ⬇️ demand.
nytimes.com/2020/03/02/bus…
2/x The #Corvid19 -> ⬇️ Dem. to level this ⬇️prod.

B. V. much like the rhyme there was an old woman who swallowed a fly, shell, and a host of other holiday spin offs, the⬇️ demand, would have resulted in a price crash. See #oilprice metrics.

3/x #Oilprice is complex, here is a site that show some price charts that may be of interest. Here you can create your own dashboard.

Being financially responsible is important for your health and your financial life. To "live within your means" means that what you spend each month is less than or at least equal to the amount of money you bring in each month. For many people, it’s a lot easier said than done.📌
Credit cards, loans, savings, and even emergency funds allow you to buy more things than your income would ordinarily allow. Unfortunately, that kind of lifestyle isn’t sustainable and, at some point, your reckless spending will catch up to you. #financialliteracy
Your savings and access to credit will run out and when that happens, you’ll be forced to make some important changes or face financial ruin. #financialliteracy

Started the new year by watching Playing With Fire documentary (@PlayWithFIRECo). Very well made with many nuggets of #FinancialFreedom wisdom which I'm putting down here as thread for handy reading. (1/n)
@PlayWithFIRECo It's more important to be rich than look rich because it allows you to focus on the things important in your life. (2/n)
@PlayWithFIRECo Spend lavishly on things that you care about, but cut back ruthlessly in other areas. Don't get swayed by society's expectations of what you should spend on. (3/n)

“The Richest Man in Babylon” (George S. Clason 1926), is full of financial nuggets in a collection of parables set 8,000 years ago in ancient Babylon.
The seven “cures for a lean purse” may be over 90 years old, but the principles are just as important today as they were then:

1. “Start thy purse to fattening”
Pay yourself first

2. “Control thy expenditures”
Live within your means
3. “Make thy gold multiply”
Let your money work for you

4. “Guard thy treasures from loss”
Protect your wealth

THREAD: Financial Independence:Retire Early (FI:RE) Series Part 1a. Understanding Money: PERCEIVED vs. ACTUAL value. #FIRE #FinancialLiteracy #FinancialIndependence #RetireEarly #TayoOyedeji
Formula 1. FI:RE is not about Money. But you need to understand money to attain FI:RE.
Money is:

1. A means of exchange for PERCEIVED value.
2. A store of ACTUAL value.

Understanding the dichotomy between PERCEIVED and ACTUAL value is the key to FI:RE.
