Spend money on these things:

Posted in entrepreneurship by Steve Sammartino on February 20, 2012

Was thinking about this laying in bed last night. The things we should never think twice about spending investing money on.

Mainly because they make us and life better and they build on our entrepreneurial foundations. Here’s my top 10 list.

  1. Books
  2. Clothing
  3. Education
  4. Insurance
  5. Medicine
  6. Health Care
  7. Car maintenance
  8. Shouting a friend (Meal or a drink)
  9. Healthy Food
  10. Childrens well being

What’s on your list?

      Hey Lisa, I heard another great one similar to your theatre sentiments…. ‘Spend less moneny on soft drink, and more money on cinema and rock concerts.’

      Nice additions, thanks,

    Quality, not quantity.

    Would only add – adventure :-)

      Actually I was trying to pretend I wasn’t selfless – but I’ll also add ‘Surf trips’

    Funny how healthful food comes lower down than medicine and insurance. :) And what about good times like vacation? Good list and good idea. I would make my list but I’d be arguing with myself for the next two days,

      Hey Steve – they are not in any specific order. And to be honest – they are the things ‘indulgences’, more necessities of life… or tools for building our foundations…. But it’s good to know which things are on it :-)

      Are you sure the money will get to him (or her)?


      • kpolo said, on February 22, 2012 at 12:59 am

        Yes. It would get to ‘him.’ It belongs to him in the first place :)

        Two things to consider: Job laments in the Old Testament, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return.” And Jesus presents investment insight keeping with this:”Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys.”

        It aligns all your spending priorities when you start with him.
