Money is the Root of all Wealth
What you choose to do and not to do with your money will determine how deep your financial roots are, as well as how large and strong your money tree will grow over time. If you want your money roots to grow wealth, there are some important money lessons that you should remember and practice.
You may remember her as D.J. from the popular family show of the 80s and 90s, Full House, but Candace Cameron Bure is all grown up now and making sure her money is around for years and years to come. Although she's personally worth $12M and her husband, ex NHL player worth $10M himself, she sure doesn't spend like it.
Just because you can doesn't mean you have to.
In a recent interview, Candace was spotted wearing designer shoes from a luxury-clothing designer. When complimented on her shoe choice, Candace revealed that she purchased them from Nordstrom Rack (which carries designer clothing items for 50%-70% off of original retail prices). Why would a multimillionaire think twice about dropping $500 to $1200 on a pair of shoes? It's simple. Just because she can afford full price, doesn’t mean she has to. Think about it, if you can have the exact same shoe, does it really matter whether you spend $80 or $500? If you’re being smart about your money, it shouldn’t.
