*Money Mistake 1* Never borrow money that accrues interest to start a business . That is to say, never borrow money to start a business expecting that the business will generate income to pay back the borrowed money plus the interest. *Money Mistake 2* Never spend money you haven't received. Don't even promise someone money based on a promise you have from someone else. If someone tells you: "Ezra, come to my office tomorrow at 9am and pick #30K"don't go out to buy items on credit based on this promise, with the hope that you will pay off your creditor when the promised money comes; it may not come as promised and this will leave you in problems with your creditors. *Money Mistakes 3* If you want to save, whenever you receive money, don’t start spending hoping that you’ll save what remains. Normally what remains is zero because as long as money to spend is available, the numerous things you can spend it on are also available. And things to spend on even incite their 'relatives' so that you spend even more than you had planned. When money to spend is not available, we naturally find a way of doing without it. That's why I've learnt to save with an INVESTMENT CLUB. Once I send money there I assume I no longer have it. Before you spend any money, put your savings aside then spend what is left after saving. *Money Mistake 4* When you get an opportunity to meet a very wealthy person, never ask for money. Ask for ideas on how to make money. They may even choose to give you money on their own after seeing that your ideas are great, but let getting money from them never be your objective. *Money Mistake 5* Keeping your seed instead of planting it. Many people stop at saving. It's very, very difficult to save and have all you need to maintain your lifestyle especially after retirement. When you save, your savings are seed; plant it. When you just keep the seed (saving money) some seeds begin to die (eaten by inflation and the like). That's why I recommend that you read about the different types of investment vehicles you can use to grow your savings. I am not necessarily talking about putting the money in a business, because you can easily lose money in business. I am talking about putting it in an investment. *Money Mistake 6* Never lend someone money you are not willing to lose. By the time you lend someone money, be contented in your heart that should the person fail to pay, you will not die. You should not even lose that person's friendship if they fail to repay the money you lent them. If you feel the person might fail to pay you and this will not affect your relationship with them, then lend them money. If their failure to pay would make you hate this person’s entire clan, please advise the person to go to the bank. *Money Mistake 7* Never append your signature to guarantee someone on a financial matter if you are not willing or able to pay the money on their behalf. Do I have to explain that one? No, it's self-explanatory. *Money Mistake 8* Avoid keeping money you don't intend to use in the short-term within easy reach. For instance, don’t walk with #100K in your pocket when all you plan to do in a day costs #20K. Like I mentioned in Money Mistake 3, there are always expenses available to gobble any money that is within reach, so if you don't want to lose it, put it away in a safe place. *Money Mistake 9* Avoid keeping money in inappropriate places e.g. in socks, under the pillow, in a pit, in the sitting room, in the bra, in a travel bag that you will place somewhere in a bus ... impulse buying is a devil that will keep you busy! *Money Mistake 10* Spending money on an item that you can do without (at least for the time being). These days when I pick money from my pocket or wallet, before paying for something I ask myself: What would happen if I didn’t buy this? If I find I can live with the consequences of not having that thing, I smile and walk away. *Money Mistake 11* Paying an amount for something that's not the minimum you can get that same value for. In other words, if you are along east Legon road and you pay #5K for a shoe that you can get at #3K at Makola market, that's a money mistake except for those who have achieved financial freedom. *Money Mistake 12:* Consistently spending all you earn or more than you earn. It's like having a drum where you have an inlet that's smaller than the outlet. It will never get full. And should the inlet ever reduce significantly the drum will run dry. If you do it the other way round and the inlet is bigger, it will get full and even overflow. Hence, we have to always ensure we are widening the inlet while narrowing the outlet – all the time. Your side hustle comes in handy! *Money Mistake 13:* Thinking about short-term only and forgetting about long-term or thinking about the long-term and forgetting about the short-term. For instance, Lydia was told that there's money in land. She saved money over a long period of time and bought 30 acres of land. Now she has the land but she is always broke. She is always complaining. She's disgruntled and she doesn't seem to see herself earning from the land in the near future. Now, let's ask ourselves: Having 30 acres of land and no money to feed your family or take a child to hospital, is that wealth or poverty? I think Lydia only looked at long-term needs and forgot that she has short-term needs that require money. What of those who find they are one paycheck away from salary? Are they thinking about the long-term needs? Let’s take stock of our finances. How many mistakes are you guilty of? Do you now feel better-equipped to do better with these tips? Good luck, savers! Share this knowledge with your friends because it will not benefit you if you are selfish with it.

Alexander the Great's last wish

On his death bed, Alexander summoned his army generals and told them his three ultimate wishes:

#1. The best doctors should carry his coffin...

#2. The wealth he has accumulated (money, gold, precious stones) should be scattered along the procession to the cemetery...

#3. His hands should be let loose, so they hang outside the coffin for all to see!!

One of his generals who was surprised by these unusual requests asked Alexander to explain.

Here is what Alexander the Great had to say:

#1. "I want the best doctors to carry my coffin to demonstrate that in the face of death, even the best doctors in the world have no power to heal .."

#2. "I want the road to be covered with my treasure so that everybody sees that material wealth acquired on earth, will stay on earth..."

#3. I want my hands to swing in the wind, so that people understand that we come to this world empty handed and we leave this world empty handed after the most precious treasure of all is exhausted, and that is: TIME.

We do not take to our grave any material wealth. TIME is our most precious treasure because it is LIMITED. We can produce more wealth, but we cannot produce more TIME.

When we give someone our time, we actually give a portion of our life that we will never take back.

Call for Applications - GEMS4 Launches £3.5 Million Funding Window For Women Empowerment

Charged with the mandate to catalyze private sector investment in innovative, commercially viable, and inclusive business models that result in improved performance, job creation and improved income opportunities for poor men and women engaged in the Wholesale and Retail sector, two funding windows have been launched by the Growth and Employment in States – Wholesale and Retail Sector (GEMS4) - a market development project in Nigeria funded by DFID/UKaid and the World Bank.

It has been identified that 7 out of every 10 baskets of perishable food produce such as tomatoes, pepper, and vegetables are lost within the value chain before it gets to the end consumer due to poor preservation techniques and storage facilities, while many women in the wholesale and retail sector which contributed (N22 trillion) to the 2014 national GDP are poor.

The GEMS4 Enterprise Challenge Fund is a £3.5 million private sector development matching grant fund set to provide financial and technical support to innovative business ideas that will either tackle the loss of perishable produce due to spoilage and wastage, or create income opportunities in the sector for women.

The funding windows were created in a bid to spur the private sector into developing and providing the needed solution. Although the fund is focused on business innovation and solutions, applying organisations and projects must meet certain key criteria to be eligible to apply for grant funding support.

The best ideas will receive grant investment of up to £150,000 with special consideration for applications from women owned or managed enterprises.

Eligible organisations are encouraged to apply for the GEMS4 Enterprise Challenge Fund through the following Funding Windows which are currently open for application:

Women Economic Empowerment -Term Sheet

Women Economic Empowerment - Application Form

Off Grid Storage Solutions - Term Sheet

Off Grid Storage Solutions  - Application Form

Each funding window seeks to address a specific market problem facing small and medium enterprises, small-holder farmers/producers, poor and vulnerable men and women engaged in economic activities within the wholesale and retail sector, and its value chain.

By improving private sector perceptions of the associated costs and benefits of innovating and adopting pro-poor models, it will encourage replication. It is intended that the impact of funding given to an individual project will be multiplied by the resulting and recurring changes to perceptions and practices in the Wholesale and Retail Sector.

Deadline for submission of applications is 24th August, 2015.  Applications submitted after the deadline date will not be accepted or processed.

Please send clarification questions and enquiries to the fund manager on or call +23413428155

personal finance lessons from the book "Richest man in Babylon".

Babylon as at the time was the richest kingdom in the world. Although a very rich nation its citizens were sinking in the seas of poverty. The king became worried and wondered why so few of the people acquired the gold. The chancellor investigated and brought back his observations that only a few of the people had the knowledge of safekeeping part of the gold they received. For others to be taught how to keep a part of the gold, Arkard, then the richest man in Babylon was called upon to handle the job and he titled his lecture “the seven cures for a lean purse”. They are
1. Start fattening your purse. The very first he prescribed was for every ten coins earned, a tenth of it should be kept.
2. Control your expenses. To do this, you do not confuse your “needs” with your “wants or desires”. Everybody is with more wants than he can actually backup with money. A budget must be made for the necessary expenses. The budget reveals the crevasses and holes in your purse and enables you to seal them.
3. Multiply your wealth. When you have been able to control your expenses, your wealth should multiply. A man’s wealth is not the amount of money he carries about but the golden scream that continually flows into his purse. Put each coin to labouring that it may reproduce its kind and multiply your wealth, a source of continous wealth. Relating this point to today’s world, though gold is no longer in use, we still have expenses to handle. By investing part of your earned income properly, you should multiply your wealth.
4. Guard your treasures from loss. Learn to invest your income only where it is safe where your money could be recollected when desired with fair interest. Seek relevant information from very reliable sources study carefully before entrusting your money into any investment, make acquaintance with the risks involved. Here is how his first investment went.
- “My own investment was a tragedy to me at the time. I entrusted the guarded savings of a year to a brick maker named Azmur, who was traveling over the far seas to Tyre and agreed to buy for me the rare jewels of the Phoenicians. These we would sell upon his return and divide the profits. As it happened, the Phoenicians were scoundrels and sold him bits of glass. My treasure was lost. Today, my training would show to me at once the folly of entrusting a bricklayer to buy jewels.
5. Make your home a profitable investment. Money lenders gladly consider the desires of men who seek homes and bind for their families. Readily, may you borrow to pay the bricklayer and builders for such commendable purposes if you can show a reasonable portion of the necessary sum which you had provided for the purpose.

After completion of the house, you can pay the money lenders with the same regularity as you were paying the Landlord. This is because each payment reduces your indebtedness to the borrower and will reduce your cost of living, making available more of your earnings for pleasure and gratification of your desires.
6. Ensure a future Income. The man who because of his understanding of the laws of wealth acquires growing surplus should give thoughts to those future days. He should plan certain investments or provisions that’ll endure safely for many years, yet will be available when the time arrives which he has so wisely anticipated. There are so many ways a man may provide for his future. Summarily, his sixth lecture was on investment. By so doing, you accumulate wealth for yourself and to keep you going at a time you are unable to keep your job going.
7. Increase your ability to earn. He said “a young man came to me complaining that his income from his job was not enough to pay his expenses. There upon I told him that this being the case, he was a poor customer for the money lender, as he possessed no surplus earning capacity to repay the loan. The man told me that he had been going to his employer six times weekly to seen an increase in his wage but it has always been to no avail. According to Arkard the man possessed what was required to earn more, a proper and commendable desire. Desire must precede accomplishment. The secret of people whom today serve as our idols role models etc is their determination before anything can be accomplished. The man lacked a basic principle towards earning more which is determination. There are many channels via which an individual can earn more even without a raise in wage. He lacked knowledge. The seventh and last remedy concerns cultivating your own powers; to study and become wiser; to become more skilful; to be more determined; act big, think big and talk big. Always carry out the affairs of man change and improve because keen minded people seek grater skills that would enable them to better serve those upon whose patronage they depend. The more of wisdom we know, the more we earn. The man who seeks to learn more of his craft shall be richly rewarded. Desire should be backed up with determination. These desires must be simple and definite. They defeat their own purpose should they be too many too confusing or beyond a man’s training to accomplish. At times when people are introduced to investment, they marvel and wonder where they are to get money for investment purposes. Unless you take total control of your expenses, the debt burden on you could lead you to an early demise. It is a well known fact that what an individual earns is not a major determinant of his wealth. The reason being that the money has conflicting needs. Our society is constantly changing so also our desires and needs. Certain people prefer sinking in the sea of illusions rather than have the freedom of real wealth. They choose lifestyle rather than riches. Many bosses are the ones that are caught by this problem. They always spend so much money on rather liabilities than assets. They feel investment is waste of good money. They are tied to just what they earn. Some of them rather think that very huge sums of money are required for investments without knowing that you have to start gradually and invest in good ventures. The money keeps increasing and multiplying itself. Some people blame their incapability to the fact that they are from very poor families. Research has shown that people from poor families are more hardworking than their rich counterparts. The fact is that we are on an endless treadmill where we work, generate income, expend our incomes and continue working. Robert Kiyosaki calls it the “rat race”. It is a race where very hardworking people who choose to toil for their money and not embezzle end up with nothing to show for their labour because the income is already expended before it is received. Riches increase rather than satisfy desires. Wealth creation entails proper financial management. It is difficult for people to practice this because they consider it too risky. Remember there’s a risk in crossing the road and there’s a risk in not crossing the road. Every bit of money we get our hands on gives us the power to choose our future whether to be rich or poor. This money is a little soldier on our battlefield of wealth. Liabilities kills the soldier while asset empowers the soldier to produce more soldiers of its kind to continue battling for your financial security.
The basics towards wealth creation is paying yourself first. Something of note is that you are part of the reason other people get wealthy. Each liability bought empowers another man’s soldier to multiply. Financial intelligence according to Robert J. Kiyosaki is made up of the ability to read numbers, the science of making money from nothing, understanding market trends and the awareness of the laws and
regulations governing investing. A combination of all these elements is needed to become successful in wealth creation.
Financial intelligence is necessary for the making of a good investor. Becoming a good and knowledgeable investor comes by experience most times. The media today has made very inexpensive convenient ways of educating you about financial markets.
