Did you know that destinations are made from small actions? It is true, and although the habit does not make the monk, those habits forge our future.

If you are surprised when looking at your finances because they are almost in intensive care, do not worry. We will talk about various habits that may be causing you an unnecessary exit of money; and how to solve it.

1. The habit that affects both men and women, Make shopping a therapy. There are many therapies that do not spend your hard earned money. See if you can give an opportunity to some of the following: listening to music, cycling, playing sports, and even cursing the referees. All these things help you reduce stress and do not affect your pocket.

2. Bad vibes. Crying about money all the time, makes you attract bad energies which prevent you from getting what you really want. Need to be more positive. Start each morning saying “Things get better every day”, or something like that. The important thing is that with positive thoughts, you attract the good vibes.

3. Do not finance yourself in pawnshops. Interest rates can reach 200%. It should not be an option. That’s it.

4. Eat out more than three times a week. There are very few people who travels for work all the time and those people usually get a money to spend on food by their companies. They are not spending out of pocket. Which means that eating out is more of a luxury than a necessity. Nothing wrong with going out on a weekend to eat with friends or family; doing it too often is the problem.

5. Do not pay the minimum on credit cards. Banks and businesses mail you the minimum payment, but it’s not to help you. While paying the minimum, it will take you longer to pay off the card which means that they will steal more money in interest each month. Don’t do it.

6. You save very little, and what you save, sits in a common bank account where you do not earn anything in interest but you do get charged for service fees.

You have three options:

A. Use an account which automatically invests your savings in the market and helps you generate more money. For example, Acorns. This is a very user friendly platform, which helps you save and invest without requiring any time spent from you. It also helps you get cash back when you buy directly from the application in your favorite stores such as Groupon, Amazon, AT&T, Adidas, Bed Bath & Beyond, Xfinity, Dell, ESPN+, Ebay, Forever 21, GNC, Kay Jewelers and about 300 other businesses.

B. Open an account with Robinhood which is an investment platform with a commission FREE policy. Also, get a free stock when you open your account. It’s great since you are already in profits as soon as the stock moves one cent in your direction. Take into consideration that it will consume more time since you have to transfer the money and decide on the companies that you will invest.

C. Open an account with an online bank that can pay you an interest of 2% or more. These online banks are better than common banks with buildings and employees because by not having to pay rent or wages, they can pay up higher interest to you. Mine is MySavingsDirect which pays me a 2.37%.

We all have goals in life. My goal is to become rich, not just look rich. So, I decided to take matter in my own hands because no one will do it for me.

I quickly learn tricks and techniques from the wealthy, and it makes so much sense now.

One of the oldest ways to earn passive income is lending out money. Just like the banks. Banks give out your hard earned money in loans, they collect monthly payments (interest) and they have no risk since it is not their own money anyways. You see how well they do, don’t you?

How do you become the bank you say? Through LendingClub.

LEND LENDING MONEY INVEST INTEREST NOTES BORROW LOANS

This is how it works. You rent out your money to other people, and the rent you charge is the interest rate. Which will vary depending on how conservative or aggressive you want to be. But now you are the one getting paid! Not the bank.

Instead of having your money sit at a normal bank account and pay more in fees than what you get in interest every year; you collect a diversity of interest.

So, now thanks to technology, you can spread out your risk by lending only $25 to each note. That means if for some odd reason the borrower can’t pay back, you only lose $25. Again, the probabilities are on your side.

Let’s get a little bit deeper now. Let’s say a borrower needs a $25,000 loan.

He or she borrows $25 from 1,000 people; instead of going to just one entity (like a bank or rich person), for the full $25,000 which would be very risky to that one entity.

As you can see, this scenario presents much less risk because the most you could lose is $25.

As you can see, I don’t only write about this opportunities, I’m also invested and can prove it works. I put my money where my mouth is. No empty words here.

Just 15 years ago, this was impossible, but thanks to the internet and it’s wonders, it is very possible in this day and date. The peer-to-peer lending industry, as it’s known, is thriving for borrowers and investors alike.

Note: Currently only residents of the following states may invest in LendingClub notes: AL, AR, AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, DE, FL, GA, HI, IA, ID, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MS, MT, ND, NE, NH, NJ, NV, NY, OK, OR, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VA, VT, WA, WI, WV, or WY.

Remember, it’s all about the road to wealth. If you liked it, pay it forward. Share it in social media and help others become successful as well. There is plenty of room for all of us. In the end, your success will only depend on you and not what others do.
