  Financial Tips Introduction  

The Big Boss emerges from his sanctum and clears his throat. "I have a big announcement" he proclaims, "you're all getting a big bonus and an immediate raise -- including you.  But that's not all: Each of you receives a magnificent estate, and from now on in this company your happiness is paramount!"

Won't happen!  Not unless the Big Boss happens to be The Second Coming. ;^)   So let's talk about how you can achieve a great financial future using more of the CFA's marvelously helpful and easy tips.

Your "E-State" -- What Is It?

"Didn't you just misspell estate?" you may ask.  Well maybe.  But only to make this point:  your "e-state" (really your state of enlightenment or happiness) has everything to do with the building of your "estate" (really your degree of financial freedom).  And what's your e-state made up of?  It can include emotions, education, excitement or any way of enjoying life that you happen to like!

A lot of people think that if they can just make enough good financial plays, then they'll become wealthy or at least well-off; and then they can finally take it easy and be happy.  It's better when we turn that thinking on its head, and realize that freeing our minds to a more positive attitude will naturally result in a more prosperous and happier life.

Much of this tipsheet will seem like little more than good common sense, but that does not mean it should be taken lightly.  It's tempting to overlook fundamental truths and values in a futile quest for vainglorious goals or futile desires that cannot last.  Almost everyone can find at least three to five ideas here that will really provide a good financial boost, if pursued in the twin spirits of self-interest and enthusiasm.
