"Money bewitches people. They fret for it, and they sweat for it. They devise most ingenious ways to get it, and most ingenuous ways to get rid of it. Money is the only commodity that is good for nothing but to be gotten rid of. It will not feed you, clothe you, shelter you, or amuse you unless you spend it or invest it. It imparts value only in parting. People will do almost anything for money, and money will do almost anything for people. Money is a captivating, circulating, masquerading puzzle" (Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, “Creeping Inflation,” Business Review, August 1957, p. 3).

I think this speaks to the heart of most of us, in business and in our personal lives. We spend our entire adult lives in the pursuit of acquiring skills and knowledge to better our careers as well as to better ourselves. Why else do we spend so much time in school, in training, and with our heads in the books? To make more money of course!

So how else do we “make” more money? By saving...good….now you’re getting it! Now, I’m not talking about big wigs like Donald Trump and the Kardashian’s, when was the last time you think they pulled coupons from the weekly circular to save 50 cents on a pack of chicken breasts. I’m speaking straight to the everyday people in small and large businesses alike, as well as consumers, and even suppliers. Saving money in any type of business adds to the end result of more profits. Even saving money in your household, for instance by just turning off the lights or switching to EcoSmart CFL bulbs, can have a significant impact on your budget. What it all comes down to is controlling the flow of cash within your business or home. Knowing where and what you are spending your money on gives you that control. Once you have a good awareness of that you can begin to investigate ways to save on particular areas, such as electricity and general goods. So, the moral of this story is, don’t let money bewitch you, take control and make results happen!
