Hello Friends,

I welcome you all to another exciting financial education journey of 2020.

We will learn more insightful and helpful business empowerment ideas this year as well as guiding our path towards financial independence.

The General Overview for this year will be centered on the following;

  1. Drawing Up Personal Budget for 2020
  2. Drawing Up a Busines Plan for 2020
  3. Career Improvement
  4. Educational Upgrade
  5. Spiritual Growth
  6. Personal Security Education

In the year 2019, we covered general topics relating to savings, investment, marriage and money, cultural enlightenment, school fees, etc.

I will try as much as possible to expand the above broad topics into simplified details for the understanding of all.

Join me on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram via @patricktvgh for daily savings epistles.

Catch up with my financial education videos on Youtube via Patrick TV GH this and every Friday at 7pm for great discussions.

I want us to always remember the principles of Savings 101.

SAVINGS 101

Savings for the purpose of this discussion is “one disposable income that is not consumed by immediately buying goods and services”.

That is deferred enjoyment of your income.

In everyday language, savings is the money you have plans for and decide not to use it for anything today.

Savings is a very difficult habit to cultivate and as such, there is the need for some basic facts to be learned.

Every genuine saving starts with a bank account or a source.

No one can efficiently claim to save without a bank account where either daily, weekly or monthly income can be deposited or “hidden” for future enjoyment.

We all have goals and dreams in life, which are mostly futuristic.

Most of these goals can be realized with money and as such, it is important that we plan our lives well today towards that goal.

Some of these goals may be;

  • Buying or building a house
  • Purchasing a car
  • Education
  • Traveling
  • Retirement package
  • Marriage etc

I will urge you to join me in this simple but effective journey of Wealth creation.

Happy New Year to you all
