It makes us feel good when we make a difference in somebody’s life. That is why we think that the job of teachers, health workers, and such are very rewarding. They each make a profound and immediate impact on people, hopefully a good impact.
You can have the same experience with money. Plenty of folks need money advice and help with money. Just look at the many successful personal finance blogs and the many personal finance books you find in bookstores. These offerings would not exist if there were no need for them.
We have gotten some really nice feedback about our website and our mission. (Our mission is to help people get a better understanding of their finance. For more on our mission, please read About Us.) If we succeed at our goals, we feel good. Let me give you two examples.
One of our users had to make the hard choice to move back with her parents; we had suggested that this might be the only way to get a better financial footing. It is a hard choice and it really stinks to make it, but if that is what it takes, do it. The reward will come in the future many times over. Our user was very happy after she has made that hard choice. It was the right thing to do.
Another user has told us that our suggestions and sensible money advice has helped him become more conscientious about his finances. We really like this kind of feedback since it at the core of our mission. Money is here to help you have a good life. Money should not own you. It should always be the other way around. Whatever you do with your money, do it conscientiously and not avoid money decisions because of fear, laziness or ignorance. If you just do your best to stay on top of things, you most likely will do the right thing, without even knowing all the hard and soft rules of personal finance.
If you want to check whether money owns you or you own your money, take this quick test “Who is in charge around here?”
