Tyra Banks Screen Shot 2016-06-03 at 12.45.08 PM “Budgeting can go a long way; finding creative ways to stick to your budget can help you save and grow your money.” Oprah Winfrey Screen Shot 2016-06-03 at 12.50.39 PM “If you can get paid for doing what you love, every salary is a bonus.” Richard Brandson Screen Shot 2016-06-03 at 12.53.53 PM "My philosophy in life is that you only live once. Live life to its fullest. It’s a lot more fun. Don’t say no. That’s the way I’ve always approached things and my business.” Warren Buffett Screen Shot 2016-06-03 at 2.27.56 PM “Limit what you borrow – living on credit cards and loans won't make you rich.” Aliko Dangote Screen Shot 2016-06-03 at 1.15.45 PM “Start small but dream big – I built a conglomerate and emerged the richest black man in the world in 2008, but it didn’t happen overnight. It took me thirty years to get to where I am today. Youths of today aspire to be like me but they want to achieve it overnight. It’s not going to work.” Wendy Luhabe Screen Shot 2016-06-03 at 2.13.50 PM “It’s important to know what we’re good at and invest our efforts in those areas. We’re all brilliant at some things and average at others. For those areas where we’re average, we should find people who are better than we are to complement us.” Suze Orman Screen Shot 2016-06-03 at 2.24.31 PM “Open every single financial statement — bank, credit card, mortgage, and account —and take a look. Only when you have everything in front of you can you set priorities about what to do next.”

"Money is very, very important but having it doesn't mean you'll be happy. So always pursue what you think makes you happy. The thing I want to emphasise is, don't always run for jobs because you think [you'll get] a lot of money. Go for jobs that you love. If you can make a lot of money in the process, it's even better."
