What Best Money Management Lesson Can We Learn From NBA Star Dwyane Wade?
When it comes to money management, it is crucial regardless of your profession or family background. No matter what you do for a living, if you do not manage your money properly, you are likely to succumb in life. So, you need to be really money-conscious to avoid any chaos in your life.
This sounded truer as we heard the former NBA champion Dwyane Wade saying it. “No matter what you do in life, always be mindful of your money,” says the three-time former NBA champion. The 4o years old has numerous investments and multifarious income streams. From investments on consumer products to equity stakes in sports teams. Dwyane Wade makes money from multifarious sources. On top of that, he knows how to better manage his money.
In early 2019, the NBA Champion retired from the NBA and earned $20 million in retirement. He reckoned that this amount was by no means enough to keep up with his lavish lifestyle and family. So, he pondered over diversifying his income streams. And that’s exactly what he did. Today, Wade is among the wealthiest athletes in the world.
Now, let’s see what money management lessons can we learn from the former NBA champion. Before we dive deep, keep in mind you do not have to earn ‘a lot’ to better manage your money. Rather, it is the tiny little steps that you take to better manage your money that matters.
Let Your Existing Money Bring More Money For You
One of the finest money lessons that we can learn from Wade is that money attracts money. “If you understand the potential of your existing money to bring you more money, you will never waste a penny,” he says. Here, Wade is referring to utilizing your money effectively.
It is pertinent to mention that there are numberless ways to let your existing money make more money for you. Investment is a prime example. Since 2019, Wade has not relied on his retirement, which is a decent amount though ($20.) Rather, he invested that money in different portfolios and that paid off. Thus, this applies to you as well. If you sit back with your existing money, spending it on a day-to-day basis, it is bound to vanish one day. Sooner or later, that money will no longer be there.
That is why if you have a decent number of savings, do not make them passive. Rather, find out ways that will multiply that saving for you. Find an investment portfolio and invest that money. Be it short or long-term, your invested money will pay you back and double up your wealth.
If you analyze millionaires carefully, you can see they do not necessarily work for money. It is money that works for them. This can be equally true for you. If you become conscious enough and manage your money effectively, money will work for you. Consequently, you will build a reliable net worth.
