Health and Money Tips

As I reviewed one of my favorite investing books, The Elements of Investing by Malkiel and Ellis, I was struck by it’s simplicity. “Spend less than you earn” sounds so profound when spouted by brilliant finance academicians. Inspired by this classic, I want to share my simple summer wealth building tips.

Created last summer, these ideas still apply.

Simplicity leads to perfection. Whenever I attempt to over explain, the message gets lost.

What are your simple wealth building tips?


  1. Good tips, although I cannot dance at my desk! Keep moving works better for me. I am constantly moving in my classroom and it works.

  4. I totally agree with you. We do not need to go to the gym to burn calories and keep our bodies active. When the weather is good, I run around the neighborhood to keep myself fit. During weekends, I play with my kids. We play horse, jump rope, or play hopscotch with them. Sometimes, we walk to school, instead of driving them. The school is merely a 15-minute walk from our house. We do not only keep ourselves fit, we also save money on gas and help minimize air pollution (according to one of my kids).

    • Do you think I’m ready for dancing with the stars? 🙂
