A Minty Fresh Take on Finances

I'm loving this article by Aaron Patzer on Mint.com:

Three Principles of Personal Finance: All You Need to Know for Financial Success

More than 10,000 books have been written about personal finance. You could spend a lifetime reading them. Some of them are great1; others are 99% motivation, 1% actual, actionable information2. The truth is personal finance is simple. Every one of these books can be reduced into three basic principles:
  1. Spend less than you earn
  2. Make the money you have work for you
  3. Be prepared for the unexpected

While the principles might sound like common sense, the real trick is to truly understand them, and more importantly, to apply them.

Easier said than done, Aaron, but we're working on it little by little! To read more, click here.
