Today, money is even more important than the fundamental needs of human and I feel lucky that I had an opportunity to discuss the value of money. The fact is that, I used to be very spendthrift but a discussion with my uncle last year brought a huge change in my attitude. My uncle, who is a businessman met me on my father’s request to teach me the lesson of money management. He started by telling me a story of a millionaire who lost everything just because of being spendthrift. He told me that if we do not understand the value of money and how to use it wisely, we cannot secure our future. To develop the habit of Saving, he told me about student account that I can open with a bank and start saving money and earn interest on my money instead of spending it unduly. In addition, he also advised me about how to grow money because he himself started making money at age 12 by renting comics books to his friends. In fact, he gifted me a famous book ‘Rich dad Poor dad’ to understand the basic concepts of money management and reduce expenses. I must say, this discussion brought a huge change and I stopped wasting my money on computer games and chocolates and started to save. Last month, I paid my school fees with my savings and my father was proud on me. Overall, it was wonderful discussion related to money matters that I had.
