Money Only Does 5 Things
What would you do if you won a million dollars? I’d buy a small house and then hop on the first flight to Australia to meet my nephew. I’d travel, I’d give some away. I would buy more books. I would probably splurge on a really, really nice necklace.
When we think about money we tend to dream or to worry. Money seems like the root of all our problems and the salvation we’re looking for. We know we should handle our money better. We know we’re wealthy compared to most of the world but we wish we had a little more.
It can seem like money can do just about anything but as financial expert Michael Gibney discusses in his article, “Five Ways to Use Money” there are really only 5 things you can do with your money - earn it, spend it, save it, invest it and give it.
