Money Advice From Seth Godin

On the business side of my life, I read Seth Godin's blog quite often. He has a post called "Marketers and Money" with some sound advice that can apply to anyone:

First rule: great product development and marketing almost always comes from organizations that don't have enough money. Having less money keeps you from trying to buy your way out of trouble.

Second rule: learning to live with less money means you will develop skills and resources instead of buying them. And it means that when you have less money (again), you'll be prepared.

Third rule: When you need money for something specific, go get it. But just for that. With good terms. As soon as you spend money to protect your money or leverage your money or account for your money or send a message about your money, the money is not only wasted, it hurts you.

Here's another money tip:

Whether you are looking for student loans or some other personal loans, make sure to shop around and do your research or else you could get stuck with a high interest loan . Try for a secured one, especially if it is business loans you are looking for.
