With all this talk about Main Street and Wall Street, I feel lost in the shuffle.
You see, I’m a good 14 miles from Main Street and a country away from Wall Street.
And yet, all I see are people struggling, complaining, fighting. There are no correct answers and no solutions we can all agree on.
I look at my investments, and see them dwindling before my eyes. I feel myself clutching tighter to my emergency fund.
This recession stuff is depressing. I keep reminding myself why recessions are good for us.
So do we have a strategy for surviving these tough economic times? Yes. It’s the same strategy I have always had when it comes to my money, regardless of the world economy:
Save as much as you can.
Spend as little as you can.
Learn as much as you can.
Think as much as you can.
Appreciate what you have as much as you can.
What’s your strategy?
